How to Remember the Order of the Planets

Story suggestion by: Shara M. Email us a story. PlanetsLast year, scientists totally pulled a “my bad” and reneged on their previous statement that Pluto is a full-fledged planet. Pluto has now been demoted to a “dwarf planet.” No really…I’m serious. That’s like the astronomical term and everything! With that logic, does that mean dwarf people aren’t full-fledged people? Well…according to scientist, probably so.  Discrimination aside, kids across the land must find a new way to learn the order of planets.

Growing up it was: My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas. Obviously, that will no longer work. Fortunately, there’s a new phrase to help us remember the order of the planets.

Classic Nacho Scenes: Saving Silverman

Saving Silverman

Today’s classic nacho scene comes from the movie Saving Silverman (2001). Although this scene may be short, Jack Black’s character, J.D. McNugent, reminds us of one of the most important rules when eating nachos with other people.

Wayne: Hey! What are you doing?

J.D.: Dude, if you get the nachos stuck together, that’s one nacho.

It’s settled.  If you grab a nacho and there are multiple chips stuck together, that counts as ONE nacho!  Just one point of clarification.  If a chip stuck together happened to lose a chip (i.e. one falls off) while in-transit to your mouth, then the fallen chip becomes a new chip.

Just remember, if someone you are sharing nachos with doesn’t understand the rules, just point them to this site for a little education on nacho etiquette.

Dogs Love Nachos Too

You know those times when you are in the kitchen making nachos, and your dog is staring back at you with this "can I hump your leg" "feed me some of those cheesy morsels" look on his face?

Well now you can!

Nachews are made from all natural rawhide ingredients and are good for your dog’s gums and teeth.  They taste great too!

Breakfast Nachos

We all know that nachos make a great snack, lunch, and even dinner.  But what about breakfast?  Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day.  If this meal is so important, then why can’t we eat one of our most favorite foods?  Personally, I’m tired of cereal and fruit.  I want nachos!

Behold the breakfast nacho!

Mr. Breakfast, of mrbreakfast.com, has a recipe which will let us nacho cheese lovers each nachos for three meals a day.  Now I’m not saying that we should be eating nachos three times a day, but I’m sure we all really really like the idea.

Carnivores Also Eat Nachos

This weekend I made a trip to Valley Fair, the local mall.  For those of you who are not familiar with this mall, Valley Fair has always had a decent food court.  Their offerings include a wide variety of foods from around the world.

Being a steak-and-potatoes kind of guy, I decided to order from the Steak Escape.  This turned out to be my best decision of the day.

After ordering my food, I walked down to the pickup area where I was greeted by a nacho machine!  I snapped a photo for us to drool on.

Since it’s almost guaranteed that Steak Escape does market research to find out what types of food their customers are interested in, we can conclude one thing: steak eaters love nacho cheese.  Now that we know they offer the cheesy nectar, our next task is to find out if Steak Escape will add nacho cheese to any item on the menu.

The Valley Fair food court just gained a bunch points in our book, since it is now a place that can fulfill our nacho cheese fix.

Recipe: “In a Pinch” Nacho Cheese

Kraft_cheese
From time to time I find myself in a situation where I crave the melted goodness that is nacho cheese, but my supplies are totally dry and the grocery store is closed or I’ve had one too many glasses of wine to drive.

When faced with utterly desperate moments like this, I often turn to the following recipe which I’ve dubbed “In a Pink Nacho Cheese.”

This recipe is based on some simple ingredients found in most homes.

Nacho Cheese Tip #1: Nature’s Food Lubricant

Medicinal_nacho_cheeseDo you suffer from constant heartburn or indigestion?  Do you find it extremely hard to swallow large amounts of food?  Are you frequently a contestant in food eating contests?  Do you love nacho cheese?  Are you human?

If you’ve answered "yes" to any of the questions above then I have a tip for you: start coating all of your food in nacho cheese.

Coating all of your food in nacho cheese before it is consumed will act as a lubricant to help the food slide into your stomach much faster.  This will help you swallow large amounts food at one time (good for winning food eating contests or if you are a fatty).  Once the food has entered your stomach, the nacho cheese will act as a digestive aid (see: the medicinal uses of nacho cheese). 

Most importantly it will make any food you eat taste like nacho cheese!
