Culinary no-no #306

Culinary no-no's


Lately I’ve had an affinity for a certain snack Jennifer picks up at Sendik’s.

In our house, little Kyla refers to them as "cheese puffies."

I’ll chew on the puffies while I’m at the computer. Not one by one, but generally a small handful.

While blogging one of my masterpieces recently, one of those beautiful crunchy morsels inexplicably fell on the floor. Horrified, I wasn’t about to waste a single orange crumb.

Keep in mind that 999 times out of 1,000 that puffy is headed right for the garbage. Except this time. I scooped that puffy up like a Hoover vacuum in record time.

Of course, wouldn't you know. There behind me ready to pounce and scold was Jennifer doing her imitation of Felix Unger.

Too late. The puffy was just about digested.

I should know better, having pride in being a rather neat bloke myself. When I was News Director at WTMJ Radio, the cryptosporidium crisis broke.  Hard to believe that it was necessary, but we actually had one of our talk show hosts voice a public service announcement reminding listeners to wash their hands frequently, especially after using the facilities.

Yep, I get all that.

But let's get back to my swiping of that cheese puffy in...






Seems I’ve heard some old school of thought that my swift action swiping up that puffy made me completely immune from the kajillion germs that are, at this very moment, forming a cocoon around the entire city of Franklin.

In the previous 300-plus no-no blogs, I haven’t touched this dirty dining issue. So, let’s bring in Michael from Vsauce videos for a discussion, albeit sometimes technical, about eating cheese puffies off the Fischer floor.

It comes your way in…







And since we're in a neat-freak mode this week, let's see what ABC's 20/20 found behind closed doors at restaurants...
