"ARGHH! There are bugs in the pasta!" Brittany exclaimed in her most animated meek, mild voice.
"That's what the little strainer is for." I tried to suggest helpfully. She looked at me incredulously: Are you serious?
Yeah, Bugs manage to get into everything: factory sealed pasta, tupperware, even "lock and lock" containers. CheezWhiz glass jars which have rubber lined lids seem to have the most protective seal. These jars are keeping the ants out of my sugar, so far.
I did tell Brittany that when she seasons the pasta to leave out the pepper. It will make her feel less paranoid eating her meal without wondering if the black speck is a bug that escaped the strainer.
