Sweet, Spicy Yum!


It seems that everything has to be controversial, now that we're in the Trump Era. Even our food.

As Consumer Reports, well, reports, there are issues with shrimp whether you go with farm-raised or wild caught. Cutting to the chase, your best bet from both health and ethics standpoints is to go with US wild caught - ideally, certified by the Marine Stewardship Council as responsibly harvested. So, try to do that, because ain't nobody gonna stop eating shrimp!

And, hey, look! What a surprise - I just happen to have a couple of shrimp recipes to share with you. You didn't see that coming, I betcha! Let's get our grub on!

Every time you watch her waving her alien-length arms around in a ritualistic frenzy over how shitty liberals are, just remember that we have already seen the emptiness of her soul laid bare. Remember that time she wanted to eat your baby because you got a tax credit?

It's just another Wednesday in an America that snatched kids from their parents and locked them up in old Walmarts. Trump just signed an unneeded executive order ending his heinous child separation policy, but his "the bad guy mobster in a mobster movie" tactics might've had some permanent damage. What remains of the shriveled-up soul of the grand old poor-screwing Republican party has finally had enough.
