Outdated Herbals

I know you're only supposed to keep your spices for a couple of years, because they lose flavor, but looking through my cupboard, I think that oregano is about 10 years old.

Meh. I used it anyway. It still seemed to have an herby scent to it.

And if the flavor's a little weak, just use more! There's no way that could go horribly wrong by resulting in mildly flavored greenish bits coating every piece of food. (I'm serious. There's no way. I don't have that much old oregano.)

Someday when I'm actually a cook or something, maybe I'll care that my spice rack is out of date. Since that will never happen, be prepared for vintage seasonings if you ever come over to eat.
