Hand over that Fry!


I’d give it all for pecan pie

 Or enchiladas! Beans!

A cookbook only makes me sigh

(Damn pictures of cuisine!)

The pot is missing taters

the pizza’s missing crust

How ’bout a cookie later?

Is dieting a must?

The Fridgidaire is fortified

the bakers ovens, quiet

I’d give a leg for something fried

and a different way to diet!

A frolic food?

“This is good. What the hell is it? Huh? An aphrodisiac, you say?”

That’s what I said the first time I ate one off a cheese plate.

The Caper berry is a Mediterranean fruit that grows on a thorny plant. They are actually the buds that are picked before they flower into white blossoms. In Biblical times, the caper berry was supposed to have aphrodisiac properties. Hmm… Perhaps, when ingested, they help us frolic about and have a mischievous caper of our own.

Suggestion: eat sparingly 🙂 🙂

Dazed and Confused about these Twinkies

was a stoner movie in the 1970’s. The location of one scene, Top Notch, a hamburger joint here in town, only added to the casual restaurant’s popularity. I ate there today – as I do about twice a month. But something was different.


Deep fried Twinkies? My turn to be “Dazed and Confused.”

Is this Texas’ version of Cafe Du Monde’s beignets in New Orleans?


I can’t tell you the difference. I fore-went the fried Twinkie offer.


Please, do not kill me!

And the Bee spoke:


“Please do not let me perish. I am important to the world.

About one in three mouthful’s of your food is because I pollinated it.

My friends and I pollinate over $20 billion worth of crops each year.

Do you like flowers? We pollinate about  1/6th of all the flowers in the world.

We make a nectar called “honey.” This honey is an antioxidant and helps you improve brain function. We need you to eat this so you will remember how important we are.

Maybe because of our honey, we are very smart. We can figure out the shortest possible routes between flowers.

We work very hard. Because our wings beat 11.400 times per minute, we can buzz to our own music.

We have been around a very long time. Fossils of my ancestors date back to 150 million years ago.

WE NEED EACH OTHER! So, please, keep your poisonous pesticides away from us.

Thank you.” – Queen Bee
