MSG. Monosodium Glutamate. Mmmmm. So Good.
Seriously though, MSG is a debated ingredient. There's really no definitive evidence that MSG gives you headaches, nausea, etc., but many believe it causes all that and leads to obesity. Like I said, debated ingredient.
My son came back from GA. having spent time with his dad and also my current in-laws, and brought back with him a book that he chose from a pile that my in-laws were giving away.
This baby is 50 years old.
I perused the book, most of which is really simple, and slightly repetitive. Then, I saw this.
1/2 tsp monosodium glutamate.
Never have I seen a recipe book with this ingredient. It cracked us up to no end! I could just see the anti-MSG group freaking out. (MSG doesn't bother me, as far as I know. I'm not a headache-getting kind of person, unless I'm off my C8H10N4O2.)
Two weeks ago, mid-week, we took a trip to my in-laws, to meet our new niece and celebrate some birthdays. I cooked a fabulous Mexican feast too, I might add. While searching for spices, I found this.
I ran for my camera. My M-I-L didn' even realize it was there...or 48 years old either. The thing is older than me.
It was a FUH-NEE find.
