being tired and hungry, we thought we'd have some porridge this morning, so I found the box with the oats in, and bunged the requisite amounts of them, the milk and the water into a bowl, and placed it in the microwave.
and only then noticed that the bag said "best before April 03". How bad could it be, I thought? When they were cooked, they didn't smell very appetising, to be honest; so Pete had a rummage in the cupboard where we keep such things, and emerged triumphantly waving another bag of porridge oats.
"best before 2000", it said.
so we're still hungry.
