Chinglish Gruel

Posted on March 11, 2012


My wife bought a container of fresh macaroni at a local cafe and was slightly perplexed by the instructions on the back:

Storing method: keep between 0°C to 6°C or above 65°C (apparently any storage between 6 and 65 degrees Celsius (42.8°F – 149°F) is unsafe but storage above 149°F would be fine. I’d be interested to hear if any readers have a refrigerator that can maintain a temperature above 149°F)
Edible method: heats up 2 minutes with the microwave oven mid-fire, heat saves can direct edible.

This product really made me feel nostalgic for my years at the orphanage.

I’ve tried to imitate that orphanage gruel but I’ve never been able to get it just right.
