Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

  • Sep 8

    I recently read a story that there is an elementary school class that was made “peanut free” this year. Where did this peanut allergy crap come from? I bet half the adults today never heard of “peanut” allergies, or even had one growing up.
    If my kid loved peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and wanted to take one for lunch, I would not deprive them of a nutritious meal to help them through their day. If a parent cannot control the habits of their children then that is their problem and they should keep the children with them at all times. Why should others have to suffer for the ignorance of others? OK, enough of that, I’m going to make me a PB&J.

    After seeing what Shrek pulls out of his ear in the movie, I’m going to have to say no to these Golden Snack Cakes with Ogre Green filling!

    I found Muddy Buddies Chex Mix in the store 2 days ago. I go back today to get more and the store manager says the manufacturer told them to send them back and take credit. Why is it when I like a product, it gets discontinued?

    I just heard the news that there will be No Eggo Waffles until 2010? The Kelloggs company is blaming the Eggo Waffle Shortage on flooding in Atlanta.

    Don’t know about you, but I’m stockingup now! You better Leggo My Box O’ Eggos.

    Today while on vacation, I needed to get some food for my evening meal. I walk into a store I am unfamiliar with. The store is fairly good sized but a bit messy. the selection, not what I am used to. I found t=food that will do for what I had planned for my meal. When I get to the checkout, the cashier rings the order and put the items in an empty cart. After ringing up everything he asks, “would you like a bag for your groceries?” So I answer “yes”. He inquires how many I say two and he adds $.20 to the bill. After I bag the groceries, I start to push the cart away and he tells me the cart is for the next customer. Now what if I decided not to take any bags? would I have had to carry all these out in my arms? Just curious.

    Although I do  like the idea to help keep the environment green, I think it would be a good idea to let the customers know ahead of time as to the “hidden” cost of taking your purchases home.

    While watering the garden this morning, I noticed some sprouts that appeared. The green beans were actually above ground. Somewhat of a surprise to me as the package said germination is about 7-10 days. No complaints from me though. The sooner they grow means the sooner I eat them. Also in my herb garden, the oregano has sprouted a bit as well. Fresh herbs, Yummy! I better get some recipes together. Looks like it may be a good season. I’ll haves pics and videos up soon.

    Well, not exactly. But I do have a wise old uncle who used to call me a farmer all the time because I grew up in the country and did a lot of outdoors stuff like gardening. So I decided not to disappoint him and keep on planting! There are actually some people who don’t understand the concept of gardening. It is a lot of work and sometimes it doesn’t work out the way you planned. Take last year for instance, I decided I wanted to plant a vegetable garden. I started around June or July. Still sunny and bright. The thing I did not count on was the heat. It was a bit too hot to actually reap the rewards of all my hard work. So, with the price of food climbing ever so high, I decided once again to plant a veggie garden. I got a bit of an earlier start this year. I hope that the fruits of my labor will bring more to the table this time.

    Here is what the start of it looks like so far:

    Feel free to check back for video updates. Or stop by the Video Vegetable Garden to see more. I hope to have them up on a weekly basis to show the progress.

    It’s really a great feeling when you’ve never made something but when you do it ends up being sooo delicious. Which is the case with my latest dish, a Tourtiere.

    Now for folks who have never lived or been near the frozen North, this is a traditional dish originating from Quebec.

    A tourtière is a meat pie usually made with ground pork and beef or veal.

    This is a hearty dish most guys would love. It’s really good on those cold winter days. Aaaaah, memories.

    There is no right or wrong way to make a Tourtiere, but the basics should include the ground pork/meat. In Maine some even vary the filling with Lobster, Yummy!

    If you’re interested in the recipe check it out here and feel free to let me know how your’s came out.

    So I’m talking with a friend the other day and they say “What are you gonna do for Thanksgiving?” I told them I was volunteering at a homeless shelter to help feed people who are down on their luck and in need of some help. So what does my friend say, “ha ha, you’re kidding right?” NO, I’m not!

    What the hell is so funny about wanting to do good for others in the world? I’ll tell you what isn’t funny, it’s this rotten fucken society who could give two shits about anybody except themselves! People these days just want for ME, ME, ME. If I can’t win the lottery to make a sizeable donation to my favorite charity, I’ll donate some of my TIME. Maybe if people thought more about others and less about how they can capitalize on others, the world may start to be a better place.

    Happy Thanksgiving to the truly “thankful” people out there!
