Gourmet Advice

Saying for the day: We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons. ~Alfred E. Newman

As regular readers of this blog know I try to meet the needs of all my readers. Among those readers are a few gourmet eaters. They appreciate the best in food. So I am proud to announce, for their benefit , that since Easter the Jelly Belly company is selling a gourmet box of jelly beans. In this box there are no ordinary flavors like strawberry , orange, or lemon. Such flavored jelly beans at their very best are not gourmet.
But the Jelly Belly company is now offering the BeanBozzled Box. This special box of twenty different flavored jelly beans will warm the hearts of connoisseurs and gourmets everywhere. This is not your father’s box of jelly beans.
Here are some of the amazing flavors: Coconut, baby wipe, pencil shavings, ear wax, moldy cheese, and of course everybody’s favorite vomit. Your taste buds will never be the same again.
I highly recommend the ear wax bean though the moldy cheese has its own appeal.
Just one bit of advice stay away from the used baby wipe bean.

The Alphabet Photo Challenge is being sponsored by Quilly at Quilly's Pacific Paradise.

#### News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. There was a great deal of excitement in Pigeon Falls last night. Thomas Lackmet the loud mouth that said it would be easy to shoot one of the baby dragons was at the center of it all. Our community dragon family showed up at around the usual time. They were flying down the middle of main street when somebody hollered “ He’s got a gun”. Everybody turned and there was Thomas sighting in on one of the little dragons. That’s when it happened. A much larger dragon suddenly appeared as if it had come out of a hole in the sky, swooped down, and picked up Thomas. It flew off with him in the direction of the Lake of the Loons.
Bobbie Stir was sitting on the Sauna patio at the Stir cottage on the lake when it flew over and dumped him into the lake and then flew off. She took the boat out and picked him up. She didn’t think he would make it to shore. He was scratched, his clothes were ripped, and he was scared stiff. One has the impression he won’t try that again.
Apparently papa dragon has been watching over his family right along.
Petrovich said he finished the latest driblet and is posting it today to the website which he has revamped.

Good day but my oxygen was down a couple of points. I sorted through old pictures trying to finish the alphabet thing. After lunch we went to the basement. Now we are making progress. Then I went visiting blogs including most of my links. Betty went out and watered the flowers. Now I need a breathing treatment.

ROFL! My kids actually got a box of those jellybeans a year or two ago for Christmas (NOT from me! From some demented Aunt!) They didn't have baby wipes in theirs -- but they DID have vomit - and they said it made them want to!

Good on you for saving those Last Rites for another day! Your family is really IN to the letter "P" eh? I guess you were glad to see that one coming! Cute kids!

Serves ol' Thomas right! Papa D should have steam cleaned him while he was at it!

The kids brought those jelly beans on the bus last year. Judging from their reactions (I didn't try them) they apparently taste like what they are called....unless it's all mental.

It is amazing what some people will sell and what other people will buy. I guess it takes all kinds to make a world. I am going to be careful on what Jelly Beans I eat now.

A Blessed Day and Weekend is wished for you and Betty

Your saying for the day made me smile. And it could be true for any other "inverted" things too.

About the jelly box, it would probably make me stop of being a gourmet.

Hurray for the Papa dragon justly meting out the proper consequence for Thomas.

The pictures of your family and past homes/churches/pets etc. have been most enjoyable. Not many folks are fortunate to have all of those photos still floating around.

Tonight my son took his band kids (from Reno, NV) on the annual band competition trip to Santa Cruz on the coast. They stopped at the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, and then passed through our town for a bite to eat. My Sweetie and I were then presented with our very own Jelly Belly coffee candies, along with two Jelly Belly coffee cups. Perfect!
