Since I had such good response to my last post about old food, I thought you guys might like to know what happened the other day after work.
I got home and went in the kitchen to have a snack. I opened the refrigerator door and went to the inner drawer where we keep all our cheeses. I intended to eat some Cabot white cheddar that I'd just opened the day before. Only - it wasn't there!
I always always keep cheese in the cheese drawer. Even so, I looked through the rest of the fridge to see if I somehow stuck it on another shelf. No dice. Where could the cheese be? Who took the cheese?
When thinking of possible scenarios, one came to mind: when I was getting a plastic baggie out of the drawer to put the opened cheese in, I accidentally stuck the whole cheese block into the drawer instead of the fridge.
But then I was in a sort of weird place. My cheese had been sitting in a drawer (unrefrigerated!!) for a day. But it was good cheese! And almost an entire block! What to do...what to do...?
Maybe you can guess the outcome?
I ate it. In all its delicious, warm, oozy-goozy glory. It tasted the same (awesome) as if it'd been in the fridge. And I'm alive to tell about the experience. I experienced no side effects. No unwanted trips to the bathroom.
And my theory about old food lives on...
