Yes, but the defence isn't very funny.

 

Sorry.  I didn't bother to read it.  Pumpkin spice is not any part of my life, except if I were to make a pumpkin pie.  Our dogs have canned pumpkin every now and then but without spice of course.

It reminds me a little bit of a sign I saw in a butcher shop here in Costa Rica. Bistek de cerdo. Translation, pork beef steak. And trying to explain the absurdity of it to the butcher was like trying to explain it to the animal that it came from.

I'm fairly sure your butcher must have a distant cousin here in China.  I see aburdities like this so often.

 Wow, does that ever bring back memories! My mother-in-law was, without any doubt, the world's worst cook. When her refrigerator got full she would pull everything out, dump it in a pot, cover it with water and boil it for about an hour. That was soup for 3 or 4 days depending on how many leftovers she had. My father-in-law ate at our house whenever he could.

 A really great article. Thank you, I enjoyed that. I won't say that my mother-in-law's food was actually dangerous but it certainly was stomach-turning. Another of her favorite tricks was to save bacon grease in great big tins in her pantry and that was what she used to make pies, cookies and cakes. Everyone that knew her was either on a diet or too full when they got to her house to eat  any kind of sweet.

Yes, lindag,  it was sad, because as relatives, we were expected to eat them and that woman had a memory like an elephant. I was always on her list.

I have no idea where this is, it just showed up on my Facebook page. But wherever or whatever it is, I think I'll pass.

Someone Photoshopped the "butter flavor" variety for an easy joke. That's the Loblaw "No Name" brand, sold in our largest grocery store chain, and I can assure you that the label has been tampered with.

 Thank God, I thought that it might be something that came from Costa Rica.

Re: everything stew. Mama used to keep a half-gallon container in the freezer in which would go odds and ends of veggies left over from dinner. When the bucket got full, it was time for vegetable soup. 

 

I cheat. I make vegetable soup with leftovers from pot roast, and add a bag of frozen mixed veggies.
