Once, many years ago, in a drunken state in a 7-11, we bought ome moon pies. On the bag, it said to try them heated. So we popped them in the microwave and pressed a button. The moon pie people probably weren't thinking about industrial 7-11 microwaves and the moon pie overheated, inflated the marshmellow and eploed the pie all over the inside of the microwave. I would like to take this opportunity to formally apolize to whomever had to finish cleaning up our drunken attemps to scrape moon pie off the microwave walls.

A few things: I like at New World Bistro the jerk chicken on a waffle - it comes with pineapples, scallions, and a poached egg. Weird, but I am a fan. Also, when I was a kid my parents fed me frog's legs and said it was chicken. I was a huge fan of frogs and it did not taste like chicken. Once I figured it out I was in tears all day. Moon Pies were big in Michigan. They serve a frito pie at Capital Q's. I wonder if it is good or not? The sweetbreads at NWBB are very good though. Also, dandelion wine? Really?
