# 8 The Left-Handed Whopper

whopper.jpg

In 1998 Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a “Left-Handed Whopper” specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.), but all the condiments were rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers. The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, “many others requested their own ‘right handed’ version.” Source: Museum of Hoaxes. BTW- I am a lefty! Woohoo!

Blog of the Week

March 30, 2008 – April 5, 2008

I met me and my puppies @ Life Through a Lens through The Ultimate Blog Party. I visited her Blog Party and fell in love with her story and her site. Her blog is told by her pictures that she takes herself! She is a wonderful photographer. She also raises puppies for The Seeing Eye-how cool is that? She is a substitute teacher and is currently taking classes towards her BA and would like to be a teacher. Photographer, Teacher and Dog Lover all in one-how cool is that? You gotta go check out her site! She always has the kettle on for tea and chocolate in the fridge! Don’t forget to tell her I sent you!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

peanutbutter-cookies.jpg

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 40 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups, unwrapped Recommended: Freeze PB Cups, unwrap, then pop back into freezer-until cookies are out of oven. It is easier to press the frozen candy into the hot cookie without falling to pieces.


DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.
  3. Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well.
  4. Shape into 40 balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan. Recommended: make dough and refrigerate for an hour-it makes dough easier to scoop.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan. Recommended: pop the trays into the refrigerator after you place the candy cups in the cookies. If you don’t, the chocolate centers keep melting and it takes longer for them to cool and store.
*I will post what I have for Dinner later on today.
Jedd has to work again, so I will be going alone today.*
