“I prefer my oysters fried; that way I know my oysters died.”

– Roy G. Blount, Jr.

Oh my… Well I guess that’s a good reason to get fried oysters! They’re so delicious! Oh, and let’s not forget about combining foods; fried oysters and french fries? I call that fried heaven.

Cheese – milk’s leap toward immortality.

“I’m pretty sure that eating chocolate keeps wrinkles away because I have never seen a 10 year old with a Hershey bar and crows feet.”

― Amy Neftzger

I love her logic when it comes to eating chocolate. 🙂 I almost wished I could believe it, but it’s actually true! Chocolate, for some odd reason, actually does keep those wrinkles away! Just a little bit a day will keep you looking healthy and young. 🙂 Here’s a link to learn more!

5/19 Quote of the Day

“Our toaster has two settings: too soon or too late.”

– Sam Levenson

Haha, I love this quote! Same goes with my toaster….and probably most of the toasters out there. Anyone else agree? It’s too difficult to just get a nice golden brown, crunchy piece of toast.

3/21 Quote of the Day

“What you eat is like how you pray: Your Own Business. Not to be forced on others. Worship at Burger King or Chez Panisse, depending on your tastes, wallet and personal needs…Just don’t make me go there.”

– Sheila Himmel

This quote is funny in a subtly defiant way, almost like a child crossing her arms and turning her nose in the other direction.

3/17 Quote of the Day

– Bill Bryson

“And, of course, the funniest food of all, kumquats.”

– George Carlin

– Julia Child

“Cheese – milk’s leap toward immortality.”

– Clifton Fadiman

My apologies, Chickeneers! It’s been a hectic and busy week, so I haven’t had the time to make my daily Quote of the Day posts. Here are some to make up for that (including today’s quote), and I hope you find some to be humorous, if not all. My personal favorite is the third quote down by Bill Bryson 🙂

3/09 Quote of the Day

The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.
– Calvin Trillin

I thought this quote was a little quirky and different than most food quotes out there. It’s pretty funny in a subtle way. I do wonder whatever happened to the original meal…

2/24 Quote of the Day:

Haha, I love this quote! It’s probably not a good idea to keep doing these dinners though. 🙂

-Cinnamon Roll. 

2/20 Quote of the Day:

“Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.”

-Mark Twain.

I simply love this quote. It’s hilarious, but it also gives me determination to learn as much as I can, although there might be challenges along the way.
