Controversy, Yet Agreement

In these great times of strife and controversy in this country…

One thing that we can probably all agree on:

Make Falafel Not War

Words to live by.

And to eat by.  😉

Great Veggie Heaven

Great little Chinese vegetarian/vegan restaurant in New Jersey. 


My sister took us there a couple of years ago.

 

Hopefully, I didn’t forget to say thank you. 


Never forgot the yummy food there (and of course, the good family company). 


Good descriptive name and eats at Veggie Heaven!  😉

Bowl Set Adorable

Wow, what an adorable bowl set. 


Eat bowl has a part of the lady on it. 


Stack them up and you see her in her red dress and blue hair. 


Put them up in the wrong order and she may end up all messed up. 


Either way the food will taste the same.  😉

Bacteria Vs. Virus–The Cure!

There is an old adage that:

The enemy of my enemy is my friend

Both bacteria and viruses are enemies of people in that they often make us sick. 

If they can make us sick, why can’t they be used to fight and make each other sick (i.e. destroy each other). 

Thus, bacteria can be our friend, if we use them to destroy viruses, like Coronavirus. 

Why can’t we create a “virus-eating bacteria” (and vice versa “bacteria-eating virus”) to destroy these little monsters that are infecting and killing us?

Let our enemies kill each other!  😉

Buy Right From The Start

This was a funny sign in an eatery:

Our tasting panel samples each item before we buy it.


And the picture is of the guy  ready to dig into the food. 


There was another saying that I heard that I liked:

If you buy on price, you buy twice. 


In other words, never just buy the lowest price item if you don’t really like it, because in the end, you’ll end up having to buy a replacement for the cheapo, crappo thing you really didn’t like to begin with. 


Better to save up and get what you really want to begin with. 


A savvy shopper, indeed. 😉

Life In The Times of Coronavirus

I heard my daughter laughing from another room.


A real hearty bellyaching laugh. 


Then she came in and shared a WhatsApp post from one of her friends which said:

I ate 11 times and took 5 naps and I woke up and it’s still today!

Then I couldn’t stop laughing. 😉

Cannibals Love To Have You For Dinner

I love this saying from one of my colleagues in the National Security field about the Middle East:

If you aren’t invited for dinner, you’re likely on the menu!

Oh how true it is. 

It reminds me of a mother-in-law joke my father used to tell about this guy telling his friend:

Yeah, we had my mother-in-law for dinner. And boy was she good!

Anyway, no one can tell a joke like he did. 

Last thing you want to be is on the menu. 😉

Donuts With Syringe

So I never actually saw donuts being sold with the syringe. 


I get that they use the syringe to put the custard, jelly, and other fillings inside.


But leaving the syringe hanging out of the donuts like that conjures up images of addicts and junkies.


DESPITE that, these incredibly rich and overflowing donuts with gobs of toppings were some of the finest I’ve ever seen. 


Takes more than a good dose of willpower to resist and not become an addict of these carbohydrate powerhouses.

Happy Hanukah Trader Joe’s Style

Trader Joe’s has the best food shopping experience, hands down. 

They also have the best edible and good tasting fresh, healthy food. 

On top of it, they have a nice gift card for a Happy Hanukah!

I vote that we replace all the other crummy supermarkets with Trader Joes instead. 😉
