There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
Last week i bought four bags of RO from my local source "WALMART". Couldn' t find it in the garden department, so i went to the manager. "We moved it in front of the registers, where the Holloween stuff was!"??? I told him "show me". Sure enough, they had relocated the lump, just the lump(?) to the front of the store?? I put four bags in my cart , finished my shopping and left the store. Got the wife's new stationwagon. The second bag i went to load bottom first, blew out as it crossed the beginning of the back door -- spewing lump and dust thru the whole rear end of the car!! Since it was the bottom of the bag - you can imagine the dust bowl i created! Lost half the bag between the parking lot and the car's interior!! I was upset, but accepted some of the responsibility for not checking the bottom of the bags -- made a mental note on this one!!! Knew i had to carefully unload it, and get the vacuum cleaner out to clean up the mess!! What really pi$$ed me off was the bottom of the bag had a six inch piece of packing tape on it!!! Telling me "someone" knew the bag had a problem, yet kept it in stock! Then was so stupid, to only put one piece of packing tape on it!! Sent Walmart Corporate a note about customer service and the thought of "relocating" lump causing it to break up into smaller pieces, and of course the issue that they put a broken bag back into regular stock!! The manager called for me to bring my recipe in for a NEW BAG. WOW....... It will be worth it just to tell him what customer service means and where he might put the next damaged bag -- where the sun don't shine!! :x
It seems that the T.V. cooking networks nhave covered shown them in action enough that they are becoming popular. Every comment i hear about them is that "they are very expensive!". Even small chain stores have the Heiniken promo in them. And i am seeing more and more lump brands available around my area??? So they are catching on!!
