I was raised in the South by amazing home cooks.
The food may not have been the best for us, but it tasted better than anything I’ve found in my travels.
We used to call my mother and her sisters “food pushers” because they were always encouraging us to eat more.
Another taste. Another serving. Heck, in some cases, another meal.
I had a flashback to those food pushers this morning when I was sitting on the floor, trying to get my dog Rory to eat.
When he rejected his wet food, I added chicken. When he tired of the chicken, I gave him treats. When he finished the treats, I handed him the wet food again.
Anything to get him to eat a decent-sized meal.

Tonight on Facebook, a friend posted this pic on pie etiquette:
I must protest.
Meringue is a national nightmare. Even a dollop is a spoonful too much for me. Encouraging the egregious behavior above means more scraping at restaurants… more apologies to meringue-loving friends and family… more gooey mess.
Just say no to meringue, America…at least in front of me.

Baconator fries are a thing?

I consider myself a bit of a risk taker…but not when it comes to pizza.
I like thin crust pepperoni. Period. To my taste buds, that is the perfect combination, and I don’t mess with it…or bother ordering much else.
But I had a coupon at Domino’s the other day, so I added one of their new specialty chicken dishes to my order, and wow — it was good.
I don’t want to sound like an ad, but the Crispy Bacon and Tomato Chicken was awesome.
So, if you usually wear blinders when it comes to pizza — perhaps you would never order from Domino’s even — consider giving them a shot. I love their thin crust pizza.
And now I even like chicken.

Who is in bigger trouble?
The lady who was eating at an outdoor restaurant, unconcerned that a salt shaker was turned over on the table in front of her?
Or me who still feels the need to throw salt over my shoulder to get rid of the bad joo-joo?
Her. Definitely her.
