Consisting almost entirely of food goodies this month…
And Generous Reader CH sent me (and LB) an honest-to-goodness Christmas stocking. I haven’t had the heart to empty it, at least not until I took a photo, but it seems to consist entirely of edible goodies. Oh! Nope, as I sit next to the chair and pull things out I also find an Amazon gift card in there. Settles my mind about whether to make a small purchase I’ve been debating.
Also, I’ve received word that Generous Reader BillF has replaced the tragically-smashed Tablet of Winter. Missed this maildrop delivery so it’ll be two or three more weeks before it gets to the Lair, but that’s what anticipation is for.
And speaking of anticipation, here’s something I’ve been waiting for…
Way back when Big Brother first established his emergency food stores, he made a major investment in Mountain House dehydrated food. One of these cans is at least 37 years old (the date on the case was 12-79) the other may be a few years older, nobody’s sure. BB wants them out of his pantry. If they’re remotely palatable, I want them in mine. But wow. 40 years? Who knows if they’re even worth shipping, right?
Personally I’ve never gotten into Mountain House because it’s expensive and #10 cans aren’t really that suitable for a guy living alone. But that’s not a philosophical objection or anything, and free has a quality all its own.
So! In the very near future expect two blog posts on the opening and at least attempted consumption of superannuated Mountain House dehydrated food. (hee hee) I’m hoping for the sort of post that gets search result hits for years.
