… I say jalapeño.
Reading Lusk got me thinking about good food and fellowship; specifically, a dinner at Cracker Barrel where a friend of mine ordered a salad. The waitress informed him that there would be no tomatoes on his bowl of house greens. You see, the government had determined that tomatoes were killing folks. Specifically a salmonella outbreak that out West was linked to tomatos (we are in the Pan Handle of Florida).
Here is the thing, the government was absolutely certain that they had the right source. They exercised their certainty in our direction and my friend could not get tomatoes on his salad. Of course, his inconvenience is nothing compared to farmers who lost thousands of dollars in crops.
Here is a further thing… He could have had all the jalapeños he wanted. As you may know, the government is now positive that the source for the salmonella is actually one pepper from Mexico. Positive I say.
Who will tell them no?
