Have you all seen those Whopper commericals on tv- the ones where Burger King decides to "discontinue" the Whopper for a day to see what happens? It's pretty disturbing, I think.

The rest is under here )

Maybe listening to talk radio all the time isn't such a good idea...

Feel like having a steak? Yeah...

Carbon monoxide is used in modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) as a technique for maintaining food quality. By altering the atmospheric conditions within the package, products can have a longer shelf life.

However, carbon monoxide also makes meat appear fresher than it actually is by reacting with the meat pigment myoglobin to create carboxymyoglobin, a bright red pigment that masks any of the natural aging and spoilage of meats.


Here's the article if you want to read the whole story.

And now I'm off to cook my Tofurky for dinner!

Despite the lack of tryptophan, I'm in a post-tofurky daze. When you come from a family like mine- which turns a holiday meal into an 8 hour event- it's odd to have the whole meal over with by 3:30pm. But it's nice to have the rest of the night to relax, look at the dishes piled in the kitchen, pretend to not see said dishes, and watch some television. Oh yeah, and maybe eat some more of the homemade stuffing later on... ;)
