Just so you know, I’m not some asshole who just happens to have medjool dates lying around waiting to be made into any old nutritious snack.
I did have these medjool dates lying around because I learned about vegan fudge a few years ago and wanted to make some. I’ve done it maybe three times. If you have medjool dates lying around then good for you, and I guess you’re not necessarily an asshole, but I digress.
When the schools closed down, I panicked, did some hand-wringing, and inventoried the pantry. I also rearranged everything into containers because we have had a mouse or two in the past and somebody else eating through my rations is not an option! Basically, I organised the pantry like I should have when we moved into the house nine years ago.
So that’s why I have dates and why I knew where to find them.
