The Lemon Pepper Trout at Cracker Barrel is pretty good. Get the Country Platter rather then the Fancy Fixins’. No one needs three sides.

Some veggies and fruits in my Misfits box are mis fitted more than others.

Thank goodness I can now get mini avocados. Regular size avocados are a perfect example of too much of a good thing.

Stouts and Porters should really have peanut butter, coffee or chocolate in them.

Vodka can be infused with practically anything but nasturtiums is still my favorite.

Olives, especially green, are one of the best things to eat.

There is definitely a possibility of too much garlic.

Constant Comment should be designated as the world’s best tea bag.

Speaking of tea, always bring your water to a boil first.

There are only three really, really good flavors of salt water taffy: banana, peppermint and peanut butter. A related fact is that Banana Laffy Taffy is almost perfect.

Chicken thighs are much more flavorful than chicken breasts.

It’s a toss up which is better, Skittles or Starbursts.

Risotto is worth the wait.

Ham goes with Swiss just like Turkey goes with Cheddar.

Most Cabot cheese varieties are lactose free.

Almond Extract is superior to Vanilla Extract but it’s fun to make Vanilla Extract with Bourbon.

Speaking of Bourbon, most brown liquors are awful to drink.

All creamy crab soups should have sherry in them. Same goes for mushroom soup.

Everything Bagel Seasoning is a thing.

Red Wine is the nectar of Gods.

McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes should be available year round. Likewise, Chicken McNuggets should not be available at all.

Capon is a big old bird therefore it should never be eaten.

Lorna Doones are the best packaged cookies money can buy.

Just because you’re bad at baking doesn’t make you a bad person.

Why can’t someone else always pare my butternut squash. A related thing, I wish someone called me Butternut.

Charcuterie is fun to say. Hors d’œuvre is not and it’s hard to spell.

I don’t know why stewed tomatoes go with Mac and Cheese but I glad they do.

A well prepared Hot Dog should be considered a gourmet food.

Dukes isn’t the best mayonnaise to use when making chicken salad.

Capers are the most underrated thing that comes in a jar.

To be honest, I like regular yellow mustard better than Dijon. I’m not proud of that.

I have no Italian DNA, but my lasagne is really, really good.

My best work friend and I love to spread butter on Saltine crackers.

Nori just tastes like the ocean.

Someone should write a cookbook with recipes filled with what you can do with Cheese Curls.

Does anyone eat Bugles anymore?

If you eat gummi bears while drinking red wine you’ve made sangria in your mouth.

Sherried Cream Mushrooms should be on everyone’s Thanksgiving table.

I love cottage cheese. Anyone else? No apple butter though!

Breakfast is my least favorite meal of the day. Unless it’s Brunch, then it’s my favorite.

I wish I could cook a meal for whoever I wanted to.

Wraps are not as good as sandwiches. And they’re no better for you. Get over it.

When Trump ate a taco salad it made me hate them.

Enchiladas are the very best as long as they’re cheesy.

All steaks should be cooked at medium, preferably medium rare. Well done is not well done.

Before a dance in high school we all ordered the fried shrimp. No one knew whether to use utensils or our fingers. I took the lead and dove in with my fingers. I’m proud of that.

I’d rather have a hamburger than a steak. Still medium or medium rare.

Clear liquors rule.

Salmon can be delicious if prepared correctly. Barramundi is more forgiving but delicious as well.

Shrimp can be awful if it has that weird taste.

Yellow cake with chocolate icing is the truest birthday cake there ever was.

    My dear friend and neighbor … you better come over for a glass of wine. LOL Bring your Bugles, green olives, and mini avocados. I’ll peel your butternut squash, just call me … Butternut. 🙂

    Let’s get together and make gummi bear sangria! However, I’ll try it with white. And are Bugles even still made?
