Retro: Six generationas of baloney

25th March 2004, early afternoon | Comments (29)

Tucson, Arizona, USA ~ April, 2002.

Last night we went to a Japanese restaurant in town, and being communal tables they sat three more people down with us — a little girl, her mum and her mum’s boyfriend (a mechanic with the USAF).

During the course of our conversation Molly happened to remark that her family had a recipe for something that was five generations old. The mechanic countered that he learned his cooking from his Ma and that the recipe for his favourite sandwich was six generations old, had been brought to this country from Ireland by his Great Grandmother, and was still written on the original paper.

Now, even if that was true, ask yourself this — what kind of family needs to write down the recipe for a sandwich?
