friday is my day off which means that i stay home, wash clothes, watch another dvd of the third series of 24 (i only have two more discs left to watch before i’m completely caught up) and do some reading. i had accomplished the first three of these tasks and was about to start reading when i received an email from a friend concerning “emergent church” thought. so i wrote my thoughts down concerning his question, asked him what he thought, and then decided that i felt a little hungry (lunch for me today was a weird combination of peanut butter sandwiches and chips & salsa). i went to search through the kitchen for something snack-able only to realize that we are at the end of the grocery cycle and therefore all the good snack food is long sense history being consumed by the two little snack garbage disposals that live in my house. yet i was desperate and i went on a search of the cabinets hoping to find some small tidbit to satisfy my craving.
that’s when i found a bag of lowrey’s microwave pork rinds. i was a little worried because sticking chunks of dried pig skin into a microwave seems chancey to me. you just never no how it’s going to turn out when you do something like that. so i placed the bag (which looks like a bag of microwave popcorn) into the microwave and set the timer. after three minutes i opened the bag and decided to take the risk of eating the microwave pork rind.
my risk taking behavior was rewarded by the wonderful taste of warm pork rinds. oh boy, were they good. it’s really odd to think that fried pig skin could taste so good.
