(Probably keeping them in a cabinet would be the first step, but then I'd never remember I had them. And even when I've done that they haven't lasted _that_ long.)
1 Your cabinet is too warm
2 Your potatoes are all in a bag and can't breath

The wife has been in Maryland visiting her girlfriend so I've had the kitchen to myself. A lack of fish dishes so far but I did a bulgogi style ground beef that has seen me through two dinners and two breakfasts, one fried rice style and the other with barely cooked backyard eggs.
I used fressh grated ginger, but otherwise this is it:

Next up is either a smoked salmon chowder or halibut olympia. Also bought some anchovies to try this:

I understand it is fantastic on roasted veg.
