Whip it! Whip it good!

PhotobucketWhat's with the kids these days?  They think they're so darned smart . . . impertinent . . . lazy . . . ne'er do wells.  A bunch-a whipper snappers, all of 'em.  

Interestingly . . . the meaning of whipper snapper has never strayed far from it's origins.  

It started all the way back then . . . like 400 years ago.  Yup, kids were slackers then too, just like they are now.  But instead of sequestering themselves with their computers playing World of Warcraft or Skyrim they cracked whips.  No kidding!  They did.

Just like today kids, in the big cities of the 17th centurywould loiter about and annoy passers by. . . whipper snappers were so called because of their penchant for standing around on street corners all day, idly snapping whips in a misguided attempt to command attention and respect. The fuddy-duddies of the day started calling them “whipper-snappers”.

Fact is stranger than fiction . . . 

Cheesy Beanie - Weanie Casserole

I made this recipe up from stuff I had hanging out in my pantry and fridge.  It’s quick, easy and really really nomdillyicious

1 Package Hot Dogs
2 Cans Baked Beans
2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 Tube Crescent Rolls

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Slice hot dogs into 1/2 inch pieces. In a saucepan mix the hot dogs and beans together and heat until warmed through.  Put in casserole dish and top with cheese.  Lay the crescent rolls on top. Bake 30 minutes.  Enjoy.
