Kids Just Love Red Dye 40!

redForties

Since we found out our children have adverse reactions to Red Dye 40, it’s all they want. When our kids become teenagers we won’t have to worry about drugs and alcohol. No, the forbidden fruit will be the sweet nectar of Hawaiian Punch with its intoxicating combination of High Fructose Corn Syrup and Red Dye 40. Teens will be grabbing a Forty of Red Dye 40 and dipping their special edition “Red Forties” Popsicle in it. It’s all about the marketing…

Buffalo Wild Wings Ghost Pepper Sauce Review

Buffalo Wild Wings Ghost Pepper

Buffalo Wild Wings Ghost Pepper Wings

I was browsing the menu when I saw this in the “Sauce Lab” section. I wish I hadn’t ordered it. Not because it was hot, but because it tasted horrible. I was expecting something more detrimental to my GI tract than their Blazin’ Sauce. Instead I got this weak sauce that tasted like acid reflux. Maybe the heat was so overpowering that it triggered acid reflux, who knows. Good thing I ordered the Thai Curry to get the taste out of my face cavity. I’d say yank this from the line up. It needs to be hotter than the blazin’ sauce.

Diet Soda and Leg Cramps

I jumped off the high fructose corn syrup soda wagon back in 1997 when I started the Atkins diet. I endured two weeks without soda during the induction diet. It wasn’t easy because I was drinking a two liter of Pepsi per day. My thirst for Pepsi was so vigorous I didn’t reach for a glass containing ice. I was drinking two liter sodas like a single serving from the corner store.

Aspartame seemed like the perfect solution. I drank a diet soda after the two week hiatus and didn’t notice much of a difference. Well, maybe a few leg cramps every now and again. I thought the cramps were caused by all the weight loss. It wasn’t until I stopped drinking diet soda that I noticed the leg cramps went away. So I drank a diet soda one day and noticed that night I was having the leg cramps once again.

I really enjoy Pepsi Max, but it’s really not worth the pain and suffering. Like clockwork, I drink the Pepsi Max during the day and wake up about 4am clutching a calf muscle charlie horse. It requires me to leap from my bed and place my foot flat on the floor. I swear it takes a whole minute of agonizing pain because the muscle just won’t quit with the freaking out.

Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese

In my opinion this is the best Mac and Cheese that you will ever put in your face. Hope you enjoy it.

  • 12oz Elbow Macaroni cooked and drained
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1.5 cups of milk
  • 12oz can evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of Colby-jack cheese
  • 1 cup of extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • Mix and cook in crock pot for 1.5 to 2 hours.
  • Serve with crumbled crispy bacon as a topper.

Veganism and Animal Cruelty

If one were to eat only vegetables and use no animal products whatsoever, what ultimately happens to all the animals? Seems that animals would serve no purpose and feel alone and left out. Forget about having them as pets because that would make them captive slaves for our pleasure. If we let them roam free in the wild we would have to think about animal breeding and how to control that. What cruelty would be done to animals in the name of Veganism?

Think about all the burger flipping jobs that would be lost. All the teenagers would be left to their own devices and forced to assemble in bands of rogue thuggery and malfeasance. Seems easier just to eat them.

Pepsi Next Review

I noticed that Wal-mart had the new Pepsi Next on sale for a $1 per 2-liter, I thought I would give it a try. It tastes like the regular High Fructose Corn Syrup infused Pepsi with a slight after taste that Sucralose gives you. You get the benefits of not telling your brain that you are full with a slight hint of loose stool and heart trouble via Sucralose. I have noticed today that I have a bit of the gurgles in my lower intestine. That’s probably the Pizza Hut grease fighting with the undigested Sucralose particles.

I’m still of fan of Pepsi Max, I would like to see a Pepsi line that has 50/50 cane sugar with Stevia. I would pay more for that. Not that I’m paying enough now for the same product. Really, who can afford soda anymore? You can only buy soda when it goes on sale or a BOGO. They are trying to fool us with these 1.25 liter bottles at the grocery store for 99¢. Eventually 2-liters will disappear and we will be paying 2-liter prices for these 1.25 liter offerings. Maybe we should drink more water?

Selection anxiety with Coca-Cola Freestyle

I’ve had the chance to use the Coca-Cola Freestyle and I love the options but it’s not worth the anxiety attack. Once you get to the front of the line you are inundated with a plethora of options for configuring your beverage. As you are pushing buttons a line begins to form with anxious patrons with lids half cocked waiting to fill their containers with carbonated corn syrup and artificial flavoring

I’m all for consumer options but this machine basically causes a traffic jam. I’ve even seen these in airports, a place where there is enough traffic. I am a bit disappointed that there’s no button for an extra shot of caffeine, which would turbo charge any beverage selection. This would also be a great product placement for a Xanax button for a shot of relaxation. This would ease the anxiety about the 5 people in line waiting to stab you in the orbital socket with a bendy straw.

Crack-Fil-A

I used to avoid Chick-Fil-A. I realize now that was mistake, but let me lay the groundwork to my insanity. Growing up there was only one CFA in West Virginia that I knew about. It was in the Huntington mall and they handed out free samples near one of the entrances. As a principal I don’t trust restaurants who hand out free samples. Probably because they’re leftovers or food that fell on the floor. Also I don’t trust stores that don’t have a brick and mortar establishment.

Back in 2008 is when I had my first exposure to CFA. I found out they were a Christian company and I reverse discriminate. My only concern is that I didn’t find this out sooner because now I can’t stop myself from having CFA on a regular basis. Since we’ve had kids it’s almost been a weekly trip to keep the addiction going. I wish they would branch out and open other restaurants. I’m sure I could get used to “Cow-Fil-A” or “Pig-Fil-A”, or mabye even “Trout-Fil-A”.

Losing Weight to Eat More

I love getting on the scale and find out that I’ve lost weight. That way I don’t feel so bad after I devour a whole meat lovers pan pizza later that evening.
