On weekdays, he never eats anything with a face.
Have you seen this under-four-minute TED talk? It could change your life.
And while we’re talking food . . . of total inconsequence, but because some of expressed an interest in my expired-food hobby (Hiccups and Hangovers, Parts I and II) . . . I suppose I should raise the issue of “pairing.” You know? As our Santorini wine-tasting tour guide tried to teach us?
In this case, however, it was not wine and fish, it was Hellman’s Lite Mayonnaise and fish cubes.
Sunday, I grabbed a half-pound of frozen fish cubes “best used by 11/4/16” . . . microwaved for a minute and then simmered in a frying until golden brown . . . and then paired them with until-recently-unrefrigerated mayonnaise “best used by January 31, 2017.” Not even three months apart. Really good.
Watch the afore-linked TED talk!
