...I've oftened wondered about the whole eating black-eye peas and/or cabbage ones.
I don't know about you but those two particular items make me... ummm.... ummmm... ummm....
OK, let me phrase this a bit more delicately by quoting a great poet of another generation:
"Beans, beans the magic fruit,
the more you eat the more you toot."
And you can pretty much substitute the word "cabbage" there. At least for me.
But actually I have to tell you I have to use a different tense when referring to this problem....because it actually only USED to and it doesn't ANY MORE!
And no, this isn't an blog-ad for bean-o.
It's not a blog-ad at all.
It's really just part of the full-service I want to offer to you, my lovely and beloved readers.
And here's what it is.
Yup, you just whip up your favorite "poetry inducing" pot of something but throw in a few finely diced up pieces of crystallized ginger into the pot. It doesn't effect the taste at all AND it eliminates the possibility of having to quote that little poem to a room full of people.
AND ginger is supposed to be very healthful for you!
So pick up a big jar of this stuff and keep it in your fridge.
So that your New Year can be spent in endeavors other then reciting poetry.
