I should know better. Really.

So I was making some macaroni and cheese for lunch. When I first dumped the pasta in, it looked a little odd, but I ignored it. And when cooking, I realized it smelled a little odd, too. I realized the smell was "old". And then I remembered that macaroni and cheese box was from my mother when she moved out of her Bowie house. So okay, I think, macaroni and cheese from July. A little old, but these things keep.

Silly me, oh silly me.

I dumped the cheese sauce in - and it turned a lovely shade of brown. Hmmm, I think. This doesn't seem right. And it's certainly not smelling all that great. Very suspicious now that I remember how my mom likes to get lots of dry goods and then sometimes forgets she's gotten them, I dig the box out of the trash and check the date. November. Of 1988.

Eeeeeewwww.....

I dumped the offending contents down the garbage disposal, ran it, and am in the process of disinfecting the pot. Ick. Ick. Ick.

I retire now with a lovely, fresh peanutbutter sandwich.

Oh, I thought that stench was normal for boxed mac-and-cheese.

What...?
You threw it away? Don't you know there are starving children in...

Um... Nevermind. No one's that hungry.

Re: wow...
Obviously, it can't even survive the 15 year mark. Tsk, them, not having an expiration date.

::gags::

there IS a limit to the term "non-perishable..."
::shudders violently:: at least you didn't eat any of it, eh?

Re: wow...
It would have been very icky indeed had I been only slightly less attentive.

Ick. Ick. Ick. Brown packaged cheese....
