Fiesta Burgers, Kraut Burgers, Beef Logs, and Egg and Bean Salad

Hey guys, how are ya? We sure hope everybody’s well today.

Well, it’s been a while, but looks like we’re gonna open up Miz Judi’s Kitchen again. Miz Judi was like… “I’m gonna let you back in MY kitchen and no Deb to clean up behind you?? Get outta here!”

But, here I am so, I’m beginning to think that her bark is worse than her bite, BUT, I’d be willing to bet if she WERE forced to bite…shed take a chunk out of ya!

Diane in Virginia sent me a joke I thought I’d share with you guys…

Before Obama was elected President he went to see Bill and Hillary for some campaign advice, at their spacious home. After drinking several glasses of iced tea, he asked Bill Clinton if he could use his personal bathroom.

When he entered Clinton’s private toilet, he was astonished to see that Clinton had a solid gold urinal! Wow!

That afternoon, Obama told his wife, Michelle, about the urinal. “Just think,’ he said, ‘when I am President, I too could have a gold urinal. But I wouldn’t have something so self-indulgent!”

Later, when Michelle had lunch with Hillary, she told Hillary how impressed Obama had been at his discovery of the fact that, in his private bathroom, Bill had a gold urinal.

That evening, when Bill and Hillary were getting ready for bed, Hillary smiled, and said to Bill: “I found out who peed in your saxophone.”

The next is from Diane too.

If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water.

After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result … all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away.

Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one.

The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment…… with enthusiasm.

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by the fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs he is attacked.

Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana.

Why, you ask? Because in their minds…that is the way it has always been!

This, my friends, is how Congress operates… and this is why, from time to time:

She sent me another one just recently also, but I’ll not share that particular one. It is a well written piece, and the author makes several great points, and I’m one that wholeheartedly believes in giving credit where credits due.

That is, until I find out “the author” just happens to teach at a major university up north of here…WAY up north of here…Athens to be exact.

You know where I’m talkin about by now, right? They bark like dogs, woof-woof, and their mascot IS a dog…named uga…uga sounds like tug-ga…without the t.

The dog don’t even look mean.

Every time I’ve seen the camera pan over to him…the dern thing looks plum give-out. Layin down, tongue hangin out, just a hasslin.

They ought to get some kind of a cool lookin mascot. I mean, how hard could that be?? Shoot, give me just a second or two, and I’ll come up with one right off the top of my head.…hmmm…what’s a good lookin mascot?

Now I didn’t spend anytime thinkin about this, but the first thing popped into my mind was that alligator one. Who is he supposed to represent anyway? I think it’s a team in Florida, right??? LOL!

One of Athens most famous graduates (Mr. Lewis G. hisself),described uga once as a creature that inside a FULL stadium, packed with spectators, would sometimes wander out towards the 50 yard line, sit down and start likkin itself, well…where dogs do.

His buddy looks over at him and says, “Hey Lewis…MAN…I wish I could do that!”

To which Lewis replies, “Man…that dog’d BITE you!”

Enjoy the recipes, God Bless, and keep a smile on your face, and one in your heart!
