"Ribs"...... Yeah, right!

Once again, the grocery store comes through with blog material! The last two times I've gone to Safeway I have tried to get a photograph of the "spare ribs" in the deli section, but could not do so without revealing that I am bizarre. On the first occasion I couldn't whip out my iPhone and select the camera option before the lady behind the counter was done getting my turkey. The second time I have my phone all ready, but there were too many shoppers clustered around that section of the deli counter (probably snickering at the appearance of the ribs) for me to elbow in and covertly snap a photo. I didn't want to be totally obvious about it, so today I pretended to be taking a squiz at the unsliced salami logs, whilst "checking my email" on my phone, and was able to take this picture.



I'm not sure the does proper justice to how gross these "ribs" really look in person. The corners are unnaturally square, and they look like they have been molded from brown clay. You can dress these things up with cute and colorful little chili peppers, but you still can't take them out for a night on the town. No thanks. I think I'll just keep my $4.99 plus tax.

Too funny! Jenna and I were at Safeway yesterday and she asked me what the heck that was. I told her "ribs" and she had a strange look on her face! No thank you!

maybe they are of that same pressed meat that McDonalds uses for their McRib sandwich - where they are oddly shaped to look like they have bones in them.
