    Default Now for the Reverse Side of the Coin

    Our Scoundrel Buddy, Dimitri, got us all thinking about our proudest moment.
    Here's a flip......what is your most memorable faux pas? It can be what
    ever you wish, something you did that no one picked up on but you are still
    embarassed to admit or something that you did that EVERYONE picked up and
    won't let you live down. Here's mine:

    When I was a young married with only one kidlet, we lived in a mobile home
    across the street from my in-laws house. Being economical, I made 'burgers'
    using turkey meat and popped them under the broiler. All but one fit on the
    pint-sized broiler that can be found in most mobiles, so when they were
    done, we sat down to eat while the last one was in the broiler.......We
    finished eating and hubby and FBS wanted to go across the street and sit on
    the porch with the relatives. Off we went, forgetting about the burger.
    We are there for a short time when we see smoke pouring out of the windows
    (it was summer and all the windows were open). Rushing back across the
    street, we found that the lone turkey burger was now a charred briquet of
    unidentifiable etiology. Turning on the fans and opening doors to pull out
    the smoke all was well with the world (no damage done, just to the turkey
    burger) or so we thought. FBS gets on the phone with grandparents telling
    them I burned down the front half of the mobile....they show up thinking
    that we need help in fire restoration.....The next day, I get a phone call
    from pre-school, seems FBS tells them that I burned down the whole mobile
    and we are virtually homeless........That little monster told everyone he
    could and the damage got worse with each telling......

    Rat-bastid is now 24 and STILL talks about that damnable turkey burger,
    sometimes it burned down half or all of Bensalem, or caused massive forest
    fires in Southeastern Pennsylvania........it might actually have encroached
    upon the whole Eastern Seaboard!!!

    But revenge is good.....he has a four year old who for the life of him
    'can't' or 'won't' shut up........His father doesn't understand what he did
    to deserve this.....I smile and think 'just wait until YOU burn dinner,
    smart ass'.....payback is....you know, a bitch.

    Your entire store sounds phony as a three dollar bill. Turkey
    burgers didn't become "fashionable" until the middle/late 90's.
    But..then again...that is just my observation. Your time line just
    doesn't jive.

    Ground turkey has been around since mankind discovered 'grinding
    meat'.....FBS was hatched Jan of 1984 and he was about three, so 1987 is
    approx. but then why am I justifying this to you. It happened, believe it
    not.

    I have a recipe for turkey burgers/patties, in a cookbook that was
    published in the 1980s. This particular recipe had chutney in
    it..and it was very good. The cookbook was put out by KCBS in San
    Francisco.

    And I could probably find some other recipes for turkey burgers from
    that time as well, if I searched all my cookbooks.

    After all, there's a lot of incentive to make up a story about turkey
    burgers.... so much glory to be had that way!

    Sigh.

    Anyway, ground chicken and turkey were not uncommon in any of the
    place I lived in the 80s. (But of course, I'm probably lying.)

    When your grands are small is the time to get revenge on your children
    for being little pills. I used to give all my grands toy musical
    instruments that really worked, trumpets, drums, bugles, any thing that
    made noise. Remember those toddler "lawn mowers", had the little doodads
    inside a dome that went up and down and made a sort of engine noise. I
    tried to get a carload deal on those suckers. Our kids got where they
    would hide when they saw us coming with big packages for their kids.

    Now we get to do it again for the greatgrands, even more fun.
