Marketing Meat

Who the hell buys this crap!?! It was Black Friday. I was being a responsible American citizen and dutifully in the midst of my annual holiday shopping spree. Then, while battling my way through hoards of eager shoppers in a local department store, I stumbled upon this nonsense… Now there are PLENTY of stupid kitchen […]

Leftovers seem to get a bad rap all the time…often times they are exiled to the far corners of the fridge in hopes of being¬† forgotten about and tossed out once they develop a trash-worthy layer of mold. And I agree, fresh is almost always better, but random bits from previous meals do have their […]
