Always Read the Fine Print!

Here is the label off of a seedless watermelon I bought recently. I though it was hilarious that a piece of fruit would come with fine print! This particular watermelon had one black seed in it - good thing I read the disclaimer, eh? I guess they are trying to avoid lawsuits or tons of returns if someone finds a seed. Hm.

Alrighty folks - get out the untried magazine recipes you've been hoarding and allowing to take up precious space in your recipe collections and test them out! Post the results and email them to me at wandering_coyoteATyahooDOTca and I'll post your link in my Magazine Monday post on Monday!

Seriously...seeds. I saw a warning on a bag of peanuts from a vending machine that stated it may contain peanuts. Really. May contain. This society........

Hey, for magazine Monday do we just tell you about the results or post it on our blogs or....I should have read about this before but, advice please ;-)

Amusing stuff.

I've noticed that, but never really pay attention to it. Now that I think about it, it is kind of funny!

Rosa: that's hilarious!

Pierce: just do a post using a magazine recipe and post it. Then email me the link. If the recipe was good, then tell us. If it sucked, tell us. The point is to use a recipe you've clipped out of a magazine but have not tried yet, but is taking up space in your recipe collection. After you've tried the recipe, you can decide to either keep it or chuck it.

Oh, well..that's brilliant because I always have a bulging file of untried recipes. The ones I do keep end up in a plastic slevve in a binder.

I have a few of yours in there..."the keeper file" like your lemon artichoke chicken, and the tortellini soup, oh...and the wonderful garlic sun dried tomatao bread!

You can bet the fine-print was a lawyer's idea. :-P
