Why I love Google!

This past Monday a gel-ink pen made its way into our dryer...The accused shall remain nameless (I think it was me.) Anyway- the entire load of clothes was completely dalmation. I washed it all again but to no avail. I then googled "remove ink stains from dryer pen burst" . There I learned that if you boil your clothes for 45 minutes in powdered Biz the ink will come out...I knew I needed to get a massive stock pot so that I could boil all of Tony's jeans. We are now the owners of a 30 gallon pot, that says on the side, "Excellent for Menudo, Make it for the entire Family." However, all of our clothes look great and are once again ink-free! I am thrilled.

Come on over for some Menudo...Once I get the recipe I should be able to feed you and 400 others.

I love Google too! Just googled this recipe site for you:

AN UNKNOWN FACT ABOUT MENUDO:
"A hearty tripe soup as it is prepared in the north of Mexico, this is especially recommended as a cure for hangovers."

Hope that doesn't come in as handy for Tony.

I thought Menudo was a Hispanic boy band from the 80's...loved watching them every Saturday morning...I can still recall a song or two of theirs...very scary...I think Ricky Martin got his "start" with Menudo... no clue it's some type of soup too! Wow!

A post like this should really expand your clustermap into Mexico and South America. I bet it fell pretty flat in Bombay, India though. It is too bad that you had to buy that big of a pot. Too bad that Tony is such a fat lard.

I LOVE it! I know who to call when a pen explodes in my dryer. (or when I want to make Menudo)
