Sorry to have been absent for a bit, it’s that time of year, time to move! Now that I’m all settled in, I want to immediately return to you, my lovely readers, and to my many sources of inspiration and information. So today let’s talk about aged food.

Wine and cheese are two things that are okay aged… but McDonald’s? I saw this on the Good blog and had to share. It’s a happy meal as photographed over time. Food naturally rots, deteriorates, goes bad, gets broken down over time. So dare I ask, what is in a McDonald’s burger that prevents this natural phenomenon?

Just over a week old and still looking edible… and now to jump to 137 days…

Still looks okay. In fact, I’d say those fries almost look tasty if I didn’t know they were 137 days old. Hmm.

    This experiment has always frustrated me. It’s a dry bun, a dry, paper thin burger (laid out partially open, even), and salted, dry, thin fries. They’re not going to mold. They’re going to dessicate. Just like a human body in salt sands, no embalming required. Make your very own fries and burger just as thin, and they’ll dry out, too. But nobody tries that experiment.
