Food pollution.

I have just heard a voice on the radio describing the contents of a take away....amongst the food were small amounts of rat droppings and earwigs!
This reminded me of an evening when I was pregnant for the first time so we are going back into the mists of time.
My husband having spent the day with his mother had brought me a treat home with him...he knew I enjoyed Chinese food and in those days we lacked the ingredients and spices to make anything really good at home...
I was delighted with the chow mein and tucked in with gusto...
There at the bottom was a still wriggling little worm...
I had no time to do a proper identification of the species....I threw up.
I continued to throw up for some time...
My husband clearly thought I was being abit picky!
I asked him not to bring me any "treats" again.
By this time I was being ungrateful as well as picky...
This morning...the whole scene replayed as I listened to the shocking news that it's still happening!
Living here any sort of take away is out of the question but the alternative is to buy ready meals from the supermarkets.
This I have been doing since losing my husband...spending hours cooking for one person seems silly.....so I don't do it!
I shall examine my meals fairly closely now I've been transported back in time to the sixties.
My husbands joke that the little worms were added protein still makes me feel a little nauseous if I allow it into my brain...
I wish I'd not heard this mornings description of what can be found in takeaways....but I can't unhear it so I may have to do a bit of cooking this weekend....
It won't harm me!
