How do I not have scurvy?

My lunch today consisted of a bagel, a slice of cheddar cheese, and some grapes.

I don't even want to talk about my breakfast....

Did you know that oysters are high in vitamin C? (Thank you Internet)

And also zinc? Which I think means that oysters and martinis are on deck for dinner... A kind of scurvy inoculation, if you will. 

But seriously, I hate my diet right now. 

 

Salt

1986 called and wants their salt back.


Also this salt contains yellow prussiate of potash, presumably used in this application as an anti-caking agent.


However sodium ferrocyanide (another name for yellow prussiate of potash) is also used as a stabilizer for the coating on welding rods, if Wikipedia is to be believed.

At any rate I am now convinced that there was one massive salt packet batch made in 1980, like a kabillion packets that will never be depleted.

Okay so keep this between us, yeah?

I made Black Cake this year with fruit that MAY have been macerating for POSSIBLY three years. Sounds like a recipe for intestinal distress huh?

However, this cake batch is exceptionally delicious so I guess the extra long soak in the rumachevitz was a good thing.

You hear that Martha, A GOOD THING!

Man, this cake is strong. Am I shouting? I need a nap.
