We Must Keep the Vegetables Happy

I was at the store today when I heard thunder.

It was then followed by a fine mist that fell on to the rows of vegetables.

This made me wonder.  Why do we have to make a noise to simulate a real rain storm?  It doesn’t keep the vegetables any fresher.  Then came the realization that would change my views of the earth forever.

The vegetables asked for noise.

That’s why ever grocery store around the nation makes a fake thunder noise when misting their veggies.

So the produce won’t be angry.

I’m not going to sleep tonight.

Do Not Eat That Melon

Yes, a post about melons.

But a serious post.

There have already been 16 deaths concerning “bad” melons.

Cantaloupes, to be precise.

What I’m trying to say is:

Don’t eat cantaloupe while reading my blog.  I value my viewers.  But for the people who don’t read my blog…

Who wants cantaloupe?

Happy Hamburger Day

Happy National Hamburger Day!

Yes, March 28th is official burger day.  For your personal enjoyment, I have a list of hamburger facts.

(Cue elevator music)

Largest commercially available hamburger: 164.8 pounds

Most hamburgers eaten in 10 minutes: 21

The first hamburgers were made in 1904 in St. Louis.

Hamburgers used to be called “Hamburg Steaks.”

The cheeseburger was invented in 1924.

Hamburgers aren’t actually made of hamburger meat, they’re made of headcheese.

Just checking to see if you were listening.

Well, that’s it.  Happy hamburger Day!

Wait!  I forgot!

How many hamburgers have you eaten in one sitting?  Leave a comment and tell me about it.

Headcheese?

Let me first say that I did not choose to read Little House In The Big Woods.

Yes, its sad, but I was forced.

Anyways, back to the Headcheese.

According to Little House in the Big Woods, Headcheese is a delicacy that comes from the tender, moist flesh on a hog’s face.

Yum.

For all of you out there that want to try to make Headcheese in your own kitchen, try this classic recipe.
