Would you believe…

I went to one of the local seafood markets for the first time. Among the displays of the usual supposedly “fresh” catches, they also had the tanks for lobsters and crabs. Near the end was a third tank; it was labeled “Fresh Imitation Krab” with fake crabs floating inside.

Today’s Recipe: Beer Batter Chicken Fingers and Onion Rings
“What do you mean ‘Chicken Fingers’? Since when do chickens have fingers? I’ve never seen a chicken with fingers on them before. And that’s another thing. Since when did buffaloes have wings? In all my born days I ain’t never seen a buffalo fly. Have you? Talk about a strange looking flying object. And speaking about flying objects, how did that darn moose get on that UFO over there in Texas? If my husband had anything to do with it . . . Boy, I could sure use a beer about now.”
Next time, Cooking with Edna will feature her recipe for Chocolate Mousse.
“What say?”

Today’s Recipe: Pickled Pigs Feet

“Pickled pigs feet? Good grief, that sounds disgusting. Who’d want to eat such a thing? Those noisy critters wallowin’ around in mud all day long. Who knows what sorta stuff got stuck betwixt their toes. Do pigs even have toes? Blechh! You’d have to be pickled to think about wanting to eat those things . . “

Today’s Recipe: Shoe Fly Pie

“Now just you wait a cotton pickin’ minute there. Don’t you think we’re getting just a bit too literal with some of these recipes? You actually expect me to believe that some dang fool created a recipe that contains both flies and shoe parts. How crazy do you think I am? Never mind. Don’t answer that. Next thing you know, you’ll be trying to have me fix up a tongue sandwich. Oh, Lord, you’ve got to be kidding. You mean to tell me there’s such a thing? Who’s the dang fool that would eat something like that. Never mind; I don’t want to know. Excuse me. I think I’m gonna be sick.”
