Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I’m now devoting a large chunk of my brain to exactly how one would create a deep-fried daiquiri ice curry ball that tasted good. I think I’m about ninety percent there; it involves Baskin Robin’s daiquiri ice ice cream, red bean paste, Penzey’s sweet curry spice mix, and the Tex-Mex techniques for fried ice cream. I think the red bean paste would actually make the consistency come out better, but I’m not sure.

    Dimly, I am aware this is not what I should have taken away from the article. (Which was, in all seriousness, great- I would vastly rather have one well-prepared vegetable dish with a little olive oil and a few seasonings than any of the “fusion” gunk that throws flavors together as though blasted from a shotgun.)
