A quest to make sense of it all. Or a sense to make a quest of it all.

I'm moving to Colorado, where I can be skinny.

According to this article, Mississippi is, again, the fattest state in the nation.

I'm going to have a lot to say about this as soon as I get back from the Slugburger Festival.

My family used to get slugburgers all the time from that little trailer that used to sit next to the high school.

What are slugburgers made from? Soy? Chickpea? I honestly don't know.

But man were they fine on a white bun with mustard.

TB, slugburgers are patties concocted of soy meal and pork, then deep fried and served on a bun with mustard, onion, and a pickle.

They came about during the Depression, when it was common to use fillers to extend the meat over a couple meals. At the time, "slug" was slang for a nickel, which was what the burger was sold for. The noble slugburger is native to Corinth, but has reached throughout northern MS and western TN.
