    I thought, “Surely there can’t be 30 different kinds of rice and five varieties of quinoa. It felt like my brain went through the mill.

    Time to sift through all of this. Enough grain puns.

    Here are some of the more popular grains and their uses:

  • Where in the Constitution of the United States does it give the government control of public toilets?

    When did we give up the rights of 98 percent of the population of this country to protect the preferences of the 2 percent of the population that claim to be homosexual or trans-gender?

    This is the time of year I look forward to working in my kitchen; it’s a new beginning, a fresh start, eat healthier, walk more, get in the garden, drink more water.
