Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

I'm not Texan and even I'm offended by beans in chilli.
Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
I just hurt my brain trying to make sense out of the 'under the sea' salad.
Why is it considered 'under the sea'? I was expecting some sort of seafood involved, but no. Is it because it is (mildly) green from the lime jello? Why would someone mix pineapple with olives and serve it to a fellow human being? If you gave that to the family dog he would look at you, growl, and then go chew up your favorite shoes. He might also piss on your pillow to make sure you got the message.
I am going to have to stop now or I might stroke out thinking about that. And for heaven's sake, that poor defenseless lettuce leaf....
Out of some sense of Catholicism, my mother made almost the same meal every Friday: salmon patties and Tator Tots. I hated those tots. Started calling them Potato Poopies. Asked pretty please if she'd stop serving them. So, then we had the salmon patties on English Muffins. Okay, not totally gross, just not very nutritious.
I think I've finally gotten my last issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray - it was a gag gift. And gag I do as I search for things I can primalize. This month, she took a perfectly good frittata recipe, and threw in a cup and a half of Fritos.
Another lovely article this month was taking three different types of girl scout cookies, and just by crumbling them and adding lots of cream (good) and sugar (bad), come up with three lovely desserts: Thin Mint Cookies & Cream Pie, Apple Crisp (you even add apples!), and Peanut Butter Patty Parfait.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
Sad to say, I LOVED Frito Pie. Never again.

I used to buy a mix that you could mix in with the "Silken Tofu". It was kind of chalky IIRC.used to make this pudding out of the really soft kind of tofu mixed with melted chocolate bars and splenda. I thought I was being all heathy because I was using 72% chocolate and the whole thing was so low in fat.
I also confess to serving guests a home made Tofurkey. It had ground tofu, agar, chikenless broth flavor and about 657 other ingredients. It took like 6 hours to assemble. It reminded me of those Land O lakes turkey rolls my mom used to make that kind of had the texture of ground up turkey that might have had some feathers still in it. I loved those. My mom would make butternut squash with a stick of margarine and a cup of brown sugar as a side dish for it.
