    To give a rip update.

    I was out of commission about a week & don’t know when & if things will ever be the same. Haven’t cooked but once in 8 days. It looks like I might cook a little as things settle in. It’s still me and the “Derbster” for a week or three. It sure is important to cook for someone. Otherwise it’s just chow. I was eyeing a McRib to quell my taste for Q. To much McD’s right now. Keep the fires burnin!

                        The McRib is a product of "restructured meat technology."

                        Rene Arend came up with the idea and design of the McRib, but it's a professor from the University of Nebraska named Richard Mandigo who developed the "restructured meat product" that the McRib is actually made of.

                        Editing a comment
                        According to an article from Chicago magazine, which cites a 1995 article by Mandigo, "restructured meat product" contains a mixture of tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, which is then mixed with salt and water to extract proteins from the muscle. The proteins bind all the pork trimmings together so that it can be re-molded into any specific shape — in this case, a fake slab of ribs.

                        Be sure to take care of yourself. Try not to let too many things get you down, eat right, and get a little exercise where you can. Hang with people who can pick you up and maybe give you a chuckle or two. You want Mama to come home to a smiling face.
