I never told you about that dinner?
Elmer Cline had been looking for a name for a new loaf of bread he was about to launch back in 1921 (the year my mother was born). Inspiration for the name
Wonderbread had been hatched as he stared, in wonder, gazing up into the sky while visiting the Indianapolis Balloon race at the Indianapolis Speedway.
A good rule of thumb is as follows "if you can tell what kind of food you are eating from the texture of the food in your mouth (not the taste), then you haven't chewed it enough. For example, if you are chewing broccoli and you run your tongue over the stalk and can tell that it is still a stalk or over the floret and you can still tell that it is still a floret, don't swallow. You need to keep on chewing until you can't tell the stalk from the floret.
I'm sure you've heard the expression, when something has left an indelible print?
Well I remember being casually invited to my friend's house for dinner one evening when I was a teenager..sort of a last minute thing (can so an so stay)? It was late, so we just filed in and assembled around the table to enjoy a little steak they cooked up. Only the steak happened to of been on the very very tough side! Making matters worse, (and my guess is), probably after polishing off a few drinks- they decided to serve the steaks tucked in between two pieces of Wonder bread! Imagine the look on every one's faces for a second..(I simply can't forget)- sitting there with our fingerprint's stuck inside that dough! I'm sure we all wished for harmony with the ill combined.. or honestly, just for that moment to come to an end!
But it's a Wonder, why no one ever said a word?
