I am a cook. I love to cook and I’m good at it. (note: COOK, not bake! I hate baking). I generally make everything from scratch. I tell you this only to explain that I am comfortable in the kitchen. I can chop. I can dice. I can work all four burners on my stove like Lindsay Lohan can work a crack pipe. I am a good cook.
The thing I like the least about cooking is handling raw meat. Any type of raw meat grosses me out. That’s not to say that I won’t go fist deep into a chicken, or get a litte steak juice under my nails.. it happens. But it’s gross and I try to keep my raw meat touching to a minimum.
Tonight I am cooking a corned beef. If you cook, you know that a corned beef takes about 4 hours. It’s as easy as can be, but time-consuming. Again.. I’m only telling you this to explain my upcoming confusion…
Here is a pic of corned beef as I was getting ready to cut open the packaging.
Do you see how bloody and gross a corned beef is? Now.. look again….at the $1 coupon that is INSIDE the packaging.
REALLY? Really? I’m being offered $1 off my next purchase of a $20 corned beef after I rinse the blood and juice and more blood off of the coupon? And then I’m supposed to keep the blood-soaked coupon in my house until we have corned beef again?
Huh… No thanks. You can keep your dollar. WTF?
