Not exactly a review, an opinion. Green Bags. What a stupid idea.

First off, if you go to the site, you get blasted by the ad without a choice. Try it:

Props to the chick for coming up with a TV SENSATION, but what a load of crap. Here's an idea, EAT YOUR FOOD instead of squirrelling it away like uh... A SQUIRREL! Why would you BUY food and not eat it? It must have to do with Antarctica and Japan, as witnessed by your "Story behind the bags"

Scientists involved in Antarctic exploration were searching for ways to prolong the freshness of produce. During their research, they found a region in Japan where for thousands of years farmers have been storing produce in mountain caves with amazing results.

These days it's called the crisper drawer in the fridge.

Help me with the math too, if these things preserve food "up to 10 times the normal life", are you saying normal life is 3 days? That's what it sound like to me! I've got bananas that hang around longer than some zits I get, so I'm thinking this is wrong.

And get this, if your bags are smelly: "If the odor is getting bad, it is probably time to purchase additional DEBBIE MEYER Green Bags". Not the fruits and veggies, the BAGS!

What a load.....

Amber presents: Tasty tater chips!

I've only been able to find these at one store here, a WinCo which is a discount grocery warehouse club type of place. Cash only, bag your own. Pretty tasty chips, zingy with not a lot of heat.

I am a wine con of sewer!

I like a good red. I feel for those people that can't drink it cause of some strange alien reaction. With a good steak or a nice piece of dark chocolate, there's something happy about a smooth dark Pinot. I've got three criteria for good wine, it's gotta be red, smooth, and doesn't leave a tannin taste in your mouth (you know, like sucking on a unripe persimmon). It's a bonus if the wine is cheap or a gift. Case in point a gift from Tracy's work when she signed on, a 2004 Dierberg Pinot Noir. Yummy! I'm not gonna get in to hints of coffee and crap like that, my taste buds aren't that delicate, but just a good smooth vino I recommend! And Keystone says "what's that shadow? Huh?"
