A science question

Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

A science question

Postby Pepper Pig » December 30th, 2017, 5:11 pm

Mrs X buys 6 different sorts of yummy cheese for the Christmas festivities. The residents begin consuming the cheese on December 23rd and ingest great amounts. On December 30th when a cheese inventory is taken there is more leftover cheese than there was cheese on December 23rd. Discuss. :evil:

Hmmm....strokey beard moment....

Which varieties are we talking about here? And are the same types increasing, or are some being replaced by new varieties?

No new varieties Teresa and the knuckling-down-to-it-diet begins for Mrs X on Monday.

Because I’m trying really hard to stick to a no/ low sugar diet everyone and his dog appeared to give me cheese instead. Seriously, I could stock the Wensleydale Creamery shop at the moment!

Again, I’m trying to get back on track diet wise too........

Good luck PP

Simple scientific solution. Mrs X should make a gigantic bubbling vat of macaroni cheese to use up aforesaid cheese with plenty of crusty bread to end this bizarre anomaly

I think this is a maths question not a science one :D

Did Mrs X do one of Ms S's favourite senior moment tricks and buy the same cheeses on two consecutive shopping trips, having not adequately deleted them from the mental list?

Im having a similar problem with cucumbers (which don't really matter)

I wasn’t going to get onto the cucumber question yet. That is Part 2. :oops:

As for the Senior Moment, as if! I suppose that’s why Mrs X’s larder still has 3 jars of pickled onions left even though she is the only one who eats pickled onions and gets fed up with them fairly quickly. :o :o

Maths it may be but is still a puzzle. :|

ETA a Stollen and 9 mince pies which have appeared from nowhere. :o

It's the doing of the Christmas Fairy who performs that little bit of magic which scientists deny is possible - but which if believed, is rewarded with goodies. I too have been rewarded with cucumber this year -and biscuit crackers and chocolates 8-)

When you get different cheeses, maybe they fancy each other and then..... all of a sudden you get baby cheeses appearing...as if by magic ! :?

Zosh's theory could make sense! Has anyone found any Mini Baby Bel (mini real cheese!)?

There's your answer - Christmas is the time to celebrate the birth of the baby cheeses - your fridge is playing stand in for a manger with built in starlight.

Either that or you ask one of your guests if they contributed the items.
We held a party once, where at the end, we found the contents of our fridge removed to a counter and the resulting space completely filled with bottles of ale.

Or possibly all the extra milk bought but unused has festered and transmogrified into cheese ... Not to mention the unused carton of double cream at the back of the top shelf ...

Perhaps somebody received a Christmas gift of a pedicure and didn't know what to do with the scrapings?
