travel to the past, but with more flavor
Apparently, along with my magical hair, I have a magical cupboard. I keep finding cans of food from long ago. Recently I discovered a can of Sweetened Chestnut Puree, which I'm assuming I didn't purchase because I had no idea what it was and had to look it up. Or maybe I did buy it because it does look interesting, and sometimes I impulse-buy weird foods. The can was so old it didn't even have a website listed on it. I guess 2003 was still new-ish for doing that. Or maybe the French aren't as compulsive as Americans.
I texted Einstein, who I stumped because he doesn't cook with chestnuts. After trying this can, I heartily recommend it. Yes, the food inside was fine. Tasted amazing. Bonus, I didn't get sick. I ended up mixing it in with my oatmeal (minus the cheese). I added most of the other stuff I usually do, shredded coconut, chia seeds, butter, nuts, and unrefined salt. Omg, fkn delicious. I've been going easy adding it in because I can't eat too much sugar at once. It's very scrumptious though.
