My friend told me that my scrambled eggs smelled funny. She followed up by telling me that my cooking oil must be rancid and yucky. But, I know my eggs. I make great scrambled eggs.
“Rancid? get out of here! Cooking oils never go bad. People dig up old cooking oils from the Pyramid and cook stuff… sausages, and shit,” I said jokingly, but with confidence. I quickly dismissed her.
I keep two kinds of cooking oils in the kitchen and they smelled just fine. They smelled just like what I’m used to all my life.
But she disagreed. She made a sour face as she smelled one of my cooking oils. She told me to check the expiration date on my cooking oils. “Expiration date? What expiration date?” I frowned as I looked at the jugs.
Oh my God! My oils have expired ages ago! My oils are rancid! So… they aren’t supposed to smell like that? I was blown away and embarrassed. Holy cow…
I buy cooking oils from Costco. And they would last several years. I never checked the expiration date on cooking oil. I thought they didn’t even have an expiration date.
I bought the double jugs of canola oil from Costco on August 7, 2018. They had an expiration date of June 2019. There was no chance I was going to finish those twin monsters in 11 months.
The next day, I went to Walmart and picked up some small bottles of cooking oils. I transferred them into the dispensers. This time, I wrote down the expiration dates in bold letters.
I was poor all my life. It’s been 10 years since I became a homeowner. It’s been 9 years since I got a new job and improved my financial status. But, I cannot suddenly become a person of high class overnight. I’ve been telling you guys that my root is humble. This is one example.
I fried eggs multiple times using the new oils. But, I couldn’t really notice the difference. They all tasted the same. They are all good. Hahaha…
