Perhaps the only positive thing to come from living in a desert is that insects and humidity aren’t much of an issue with food storage. Or so I thought. A few days ago I had a nice dinner planned, which included mashed potatoes made from some packets of dehydrated potato flakes. All was going well until I noticed two suspicious looking dark specks in the potato mixture. I summoned the Paranoid Dad, who has much experience with such things, and he verified that the dark specks were indeed insects. Yuck. I ended up throwing out eight packets of the dehydrated potatoes.
