OH MY WORD....
Ok...so my Dad invites us over for roast, potatoes, carrots and all the extras. I remember Mom fixing this on Sundays for our "after church" lunch..yummo! Now, Dad takes care of us! He's the best! This is one of my favorite meals!
Now, here comes the weird part...I love ketchup with my roast! How many are grossing out right now??? I know...Gag me with a spoon and all that, right? But, it's really good! Try it!
So...I say to Dad..."Dad, do you have any ketchup?" How could he possibly forget that I like ketchup on my roast! So, he gets up (cuz I'm his favorite girl..Sister, do not say a word!) and proceeds to go to his pantry. This is what he pulls out....
Ok...when he brought this ketchup out..the color made me gasp in horror...I said "Are you sure that's not barbecue sauce?" It was soooooo dark brown! Dad is looking over the bottle for an expiration date. Take a gander at this!
Can you see the date???? That there lid says 09/2005! That's September 2005! OMGosh Dad, what are trying to do to me???? Seriously!!
My roast did not EVEN taste the same!
But I do want to say this - My Dad is the best! My Mom passed away a little over 2 years ago and he has been a trooper! Don't get me wrong, he misses her like crazy! He met her when she was 12!!! It's been tough and it's still tough but he has Faith and he knows that he will see her again someday! Thank God for that, huh?
My point? He still fixes us Sunday dinners like Mom did...Thanks Dad! I love you - We all love you!!!
