Thursday Thirteen....

1. Largest crib recall in U.S. history. This includes cribs purchased as far back as 1993!!!

2. Have you listened to the Mel Gibson tapes?

3. Collards:
-----Collards Stuffed with Red Beans and Rice
-----Vegetable-and-Ricotta-Stuffed Collard Rolls with Tomato Sauce
-----Tropical Black Bean and Collard Green Soup. Contains orange juice.

4. "Discovery could lead to better genetic screening for diabetes."

5. Misc. Recipes:
-----"Nightmares" Snack.  Simple, World War 2 recipe. Involves bacon. I am not sure how the flavors will taste but one I will definitely be trying.
-----Chicken with Louisiana Gravy
-----French Herbed Potato Salad
-----Tuscan Panzanella Salad
-----Peking Duck Broth with Nappa Cabbage

6. Poor Man's recipes:
-----Poor Man's Cake....a Depression-era recipe
-----Poor Man's Pasta....sounds yummy
-----Poor Man's Gumbo.  A "seafood" gumbo that is made with canned tuna.
-----Poor Man's Dirty Rice. Interesting. Certainly not like Dirty Rice I am used to....contains Cream of Chicken Soup.
-----Poor Man's Lobster
-----Poor Man's Lobster Thermidor
-----Poor Man's Steak  Can be pressed thinner for sandwiches.
-----Poor Man's Beef Burgundy
-----Poor Man's Pecan Pie.  Contains no pecans.
-----Poor Man's Peach Pie
-----Poor Man's Fruitcake. Involves gum drops.


8. Nicotine pellets could be mistaken for candy.

9. Apparently, a person is not allowed to form their own Indian reservation.

10. Simple pineapple ice cream recipe. I would use more pineapple. Pineapple is my favorite flavor of ice cream.

11. Pizza:
-----Leaf-footed Bug Pizza I do not know much about cooking bugs. I have learned that Leaf-footed Bugs are a member of the stink bug family....and do wonder if any of that odor can be released when cooking/eating.
-----"The Negative Calorie Pizza"...about growing your own pizza garden.

12. Burger King:
-----Burger King could start serving beer. I wonder if it will be like bars....with some locations messing up on who they serve and losing their liquor license.
-----Burger King Breakfast Meal for kids. At least one of the options has a lot of calories.

13. Photos not allowed to be displayed with gun sculpture. 

This is a post-in-progress. :-)

Leaf-Footed Plant Bugs and Stink Bugs are in the same order (Hempiptera), but different families (Coreoidea and Pentatomidae, respectively). Plant bugs don't have the distinctive smell that Stink Bugs do- although I'm still not in love with the idea of eating them. :)

Some of those "Poor Man's" recipes just sound, well, poor... but I agree with you that the Poor Man's Pasta sounds great!

happy iclw!

those mel gibson tapes are ridiculous! and the bug pizza thing sounds nasty. to each his own, i guess!


I sometimes toy with the idea of eating bugs,too. Honestly, I am not sure about all the companies that offer them for far as sanitation. This pizza is definitely among the milder bug recipes.


Thanks for visiting. I have started collecting Poor Man's recipes. I have found that many of the recipes labeled Poor Man are very expensive...prices must have been inexpensive for the items when the recipes were written? The gum drop fruitcake idea is intriguing.....though one can't really tell how it will taste.
