My Pad Thai Scares Me

So often, I sit down in a restaurant and see the little “spicy” icon on the menu. I eagerly order the item thinking, “This is gonna be good!” I dive in with my fork and wonder where the spiciness is. It is very disappointing. That’s because most people’s idea of “hot” is my idea of mild.

There Are the Gauchos!

On May 19, 2009, I posted one of the saddest blog posts of my life, “Where Are the Gauchos?” Due to the bankruptcy of Mother’s Cookies and Kellogg buying them up without making Peanut Butter Gauchos, I was looking at a bleak future without my favorite packaged cookies.

I’ve loved them since I was a kid. To me, they beat out Oreos and especially Nutter Butters. Don’t get me wrong. Both of these cookies are really good. I still delight to dunking an Oreo in milk and letting it get all smushy. I love to dunk a Nutter Butter too, but nothing is quite so wonderful squished between my tongue and my palate as a soggy Gaucho.So, the other day I was at a grocery store with a client. He disappeared down an aisle. When I went back to look for him, he had two packages of Gauchos in his cart. I rushed down the cookie aisle and found them there. They were even on sale! The package says, “They’re Back!” I am happy again.

Some Like It Hot

People who know me well know that I really don’t like chicken, but spice it up, add some veggies and especially peanuts, and I’ll gobble it right up. Kung Pao Chicken, I love you!

Creamy or Crunchy

A few days ago, I saw a few bags of groceries on the table that my wife had bought and hadn’t put away. In one bag, I found two large jars of chunky peanut butter. I couldn’t believe it. 1 person likes this post. Like Unlike

Monster Steak

I’ve never liked meat much, but I’ll eat it. I detest it when it’s the least bit rare. I learned to like it even less one year. In about 1976, I was young, single, handsome, and thin. Just look at the picture. That shirt was very thin. I don’t think I could even get the […]

Pepperoni Chowder

I stumbled across this wonderful stuff. It’s called Buttery Sweet Corn All Natural Soup made by Pacific Natural Foods in Tualatin, Oregon.  It has a wonderful, sweet corn taste. I first bought it thinking it looked interested. Cooked up by itself, it’s delicious. 2 people like this post. Like Unlike
