Do you collect antiques? I don't.
At least I don't on purpose. I have a few things in my house that came from my family or Walter's that probably qualify: a terrific old rocker, the clock his grandparents received as a wedding gift in 1905, possibly some other stuff.
I'm not sure how old something has to be to qualify as an antique. It probably depends on the category. Furniture probably has to be older than a car to be called an antique. I'm not sure.
What I'm even less clear about is how old food has to be considered antique.
Do any of you have food in the house that's older than your oldest child?
I tidied up the pantry today as my Saturday chore, tossing out things that had passed their "use by" date. I found this:
I searched for the "use by" and couldn't find one. I was about to stick it back on the shelf (which evidently, I have done before) when I spotted this info for a special offer on the back panel:
Walter and I got married in October 1984. I'm guessing this was one of our first newlywed purchases.
Should we put it up on the mantle next to his grandparent's wedding clock?
