There is always a time when you opened your fridge and goes, ‘Huh… we still have this thing ?”. Then you turned the thing upside down looking for the expiry date. When you found the expiry date on the package, it makes you wondering what todays’ date is and started using your fingers to count how many days had passed since. And it makes you remember one episodes of ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ where Malcolm and Reese making a competition on eating the expired food.
So that thing happened to me, last Saturday to be exact. I woke up with empty stomach. So I did the same sequence I described above, and I make the same competition as Malcolm and Reese. Me against Myself :P. Yup, good versus evil.
The 2 packs of Tofu had been expired since 12 December, so that’s like 12 days. And another great saying was echoed in my head, “Expired food is still good at most 3 months after its expiry date” said by Eko Yudhi Pratomo 😛 So what the hell.. I’ll just go cook it for lunch. (Actually I fried it.. no additional ingredients, just plain fried tofu. )
Fried two more pieces of Japanese Crispy Chicken, then I’m done. My lunch is ready. Yup, the high carb and high fat diet .. ( Sigh.. contrary to what I’m supposed to eat >.< ).
Finishing my lunch, I was prepared for any ill effect of the expired tofu. But hey, I didn’t feel any ill effects at all. So at night I repeated to fried the last of the expired tofu, but this time I also promoted it to my friend with a disclaimer that ‘this tofu is expired, I ate it for my lunch, but nothing wrong happened to me’. So they bought my claim, they consumed it.
Hmm.. If we keep on doing this, I think we can create our own Fear Factor, Blk 664A Edition 😛
