Happy (belated) Cinco de Mayo!
Cinco de Mayo, which means “sink full of mayonnaise” in Spanish, is the day of the year Mexicans take a few minutes to go through their fridges and throw away any jars of mayonnaise they find that are past their Best Before dates. Think of it as the alimentary equivalent of checking smoke detectors on Fall Back Day.
Mexico’s a pretty hot place and a tuna salad chimichanga made with expired mayo will put you on your knees faster than the Second Coming, so check your mayo and check it well. While you’re at it, also check your yoghurt (which is just milk gone bad in a scientifically-controlled way), your cream and cottage cheeses, and anything with the word “Philadelphia” in its name.
Eat and be well!
