    Indeed, the gift in re-gifting.

    Ever say somebody was "as nutty as a fruitcake" ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I read somewhere about a guy who recently sampled a fruitcake...made in 1916! he said it tasted like any other fruitcake he'd had.

    Anything with sugar

    In fact my in-laws brought a turkey for Thanksgiving that was frozen for three years, nobody got sick but tasted awful
    Oh yeah. Definitely MRE's. I found one of my old ones in my Army duffle bag from when I served most recently in 2002. I opened it and ate it just for the heck of it. Tasted fine (well, as good as an MRE can taste).

    Oh, pretty much any hard candy will last forever. My great grandmother had butterscotch in her jar that had been there for decades.

    Bleu cheese. I mean, isn't mold the whole point?

    Because they're stale.

    'Flavor profile' sounded like a made up phrase to me, but I looked it up - and this is an actual culinary term. Did you go to cooking school?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I was |--| close. Turns out they don't give scholarships to the Culinary Institute. It cost more than my family could afford. Instead I took my running scholarship and became a planner I still love to cook. Maybe once I win the lottery I will go back school to become a chef.


    p.s. Did you dig this up to just ask that question?

    WSU MUP Student beat me to it, but honey is the food that comes to mind for me. I don't know if I would call salt "food" though it is essential for life. But its just an inert mineral and we eat it just as it naturally occurs. Honey, on the other hand, has been processed (albeit in a rather disgusting way by the bees) and even the producers consider it food.

    Beyond that, I am impressed with the staying power of all things pickled (from sourkraut to, well, pickles). Maybe salad dressing?
