Every family has at least one person who does this. Sometimes you want a little cache of edibles that is for you alone. It's all yours, not for sharing, and it's incredibly comfortable knowing that it is there. My mom always had a candy bar in her purse and a bag or two of pepperidge farm cookies. My grandmother had some hand dipped chocolate ice cream and orange sherbert from the drug store. It came in a cardboard container like chinese take out. And no one touched it but her. It was her little after dinner treat. My aunt Mary had a plastic container of hersheys syrup. Her five kids knew it was hands off or else! Right now I have half a cheese steak with mushrooms in my fridge all wrapped up in a brown paper bag with" keep out" and a skull and cross bones drawn on it with a magic marker. And heaven help whoever eats it before i get home tonight! So 'fess up! I know I'm not alone. Or tell us how unfair this practice is, why the chowhound motto should be share and share alike! No cache unpillaged!
