A BRIEF HISTORY OF FOOD

My girlfriend Claire was cleaning out the cupboard today and made a remarkable discovery: a packet of “Continental Chicken Alfredo” recipe mix. Not all that interesting in itself… until you learn that it is in fact one of the most exciting archaeological discoveries since Howard Carter dug up the crispy King Tut.

Looks normal to you? Well look closer…

Yes, that’s right, I’ve had a packet of processed cheese sauce in my cupboard for eight and a half years. I’ll just let that sink in for a moment. Holy crap! This is food from the last millennium! Strange though, I have only lived in my current house for three years… so I must have been lugging this packet around with me all this time like it was a grandparent’s ashes or something.

Anyway, if anyone’s in the neighbourhood, we’re having chicken Alfredo at my house and you’re all welcome to join me.
