Remember this bomb?
Ahhh...the original, and the best!
January has been a slow month for me in the blogging world. I've stuggled to come up with things to blog about. I've also let the time get away from me in the evenings, which is the only time I have to get online. My boys keep me on my toes most of the time.
While thinking of something, anything to blog about today, I was drinking my second Coca-Cola of the day. ( i know it's a bad habit). I wondered how many of you like the soft drink. Down South, where I've been born and raised, and still live, we call everything a Coke. Whether it be a Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew, whenever someone says, "I want a Coke", you simply ask "what kind?". LOL. I know this seems an oddity, that's just always the way it's been.
Any of you remember back in 1985, when the company introduced the New Coke? It was horrible, and such a failure in the marketing world. I remember my mom buying it in those 2 and 3 liter bottles, and we drank it, because the original Coke didn't exist anymore. I'm so glad they changed their minds.
I was at work the other day, and a group of us were talking about how good peanuts are in your Coke. I'm sure this sounds absurd to most people, but I think it's truly a Southern thing. Just drop some peanuts in the bottom of your Coke bottle, and when you're finished drinking your Coke, eat the peanuts! If you've never tried it, you should. It's great, especially in the summer time. We Southerners love to use Coke for just about anything with cooking. I marinate my ham with a mixture of Coke, brown sugar, and strawberry applesause. Marinating venison, tenderizes the meat, and makes it so much better to eat. Pork Loin, and Boston Butts, are also delectable when marinated in Coke?
So, how addicted to Coke are you? Diet Coke used to be my thing, but I've lost the taste for it! Chad's mom Vikki, from Magnolia Memories, has been addicted to Coke since I've known her. I think I get my addiction from her. She drinks Coke on ice, and when I'm sick, that's usually the cure for me!
