Hike up your Bloemer's

Gettin' free stuff is just one of the perks attendant with being a foodie blogger of local-slash-world renown. From hundreds of single-serve packets Duke's mayo to large packages of Pilgrim's Pride chicken breasts, I've been on the receiving end of some fine, fine free stuff. I'm not braggin'; I'm just tellin' you. (Wait, maybe I am braggin' just a wee bit.)

My latest gratis acquisition is a bunch of packets of Bloemer's Chile Powder. For the record, Bloemer's chile - or chili, or however you wanna spell it - powder is the the most heaped-with-flavor chile powder I've ever tasted.

About six weeks ago, I enjoyed a chili, er, chile dinner at a good buddy o' mine's house. Oh, it was good. When queried, he told me that Bloemer's Chile Powder is his secret ingredient.

Upon returning home from that incredible supper, I dispatched a your-****-is-the**** e-mail to the folks at Bloemer's -- six weeks later, bang, a box of free chile powder packets. Okay, I may have said something about me having a blog upon which I can either blast or bless various food-folks (!). Nevertheless, a big box o' free stuff was the result.

It's good to be a bloggin' foodie, indeed.

Yeah, you're a real high roller, Joe.

Still living in that shitty trailer?

To borrow a line from "Goodfellas," you're a real fucking mutt, you know that?

I'll take that as a "yes."


And, oh, don't forget your fucking shinebox.

A trailer?! C'est ne pas un bon mot.

Now move along ... you're wasting my valuable time. Some of us actually have day-jobs.
