No More Mystery Meat!

Frito Lay truck 800x400

I was on my beautiful short commute this past Monday morning from Calais Vermont to Berlin – when this phrase popped into my head from the distant past … Mystery Meat! I started laughing because I had just been preoccupied in thought about what I would write about this week, and kept thinking how strange it is now that we do not know where most all of our food really comes from.

So let me explain for those of you who have never experienced Mystery Meat! I may be dating myself a bit here – but do you remember back in high school or grade school in the cafeteria when there often seemed to be a selection for lunch that defied identification?
