Abortion, gay marriage, Nazi-youth popes--these things do not bother me.
Bad food bothers me.
I picked up a Kraft "Food & Family" magazine from the community property rack, next to the cafeteria in my office building. It said, "perfect spring desserts" on the cover, but I should have known better. Among other horrors, I found this:
"Fruity hide and seek" cake. Take 1 prepared (purchased, plastic-wrapped) angel food cake. With a serrated knife, cut off the top inch; tunnel out the bottom to make a trench. Mix Jell-O and fruit, chill until thick, spoon into the gutted (store-bought, preservative-filled) angel food cake. Put the top back on the cake and glaze with Cool Whip blended with more Jell-O.
Why in the name of good taste would you go to that much trouble to build a dessert made up entirely of chemicals, that tasted of corn syrup and styrofoam? Recipes like that make me sympathize with Hannibal Lecter.
