F2: Just call me Mr. Tabasco

Welcome again to Friday's Feast. Today I'll be talking about my inherited desire for Tabasco sauce. If you don't know what Friday's Feast is all about, please read the Friday's Feast page for a more detailed explanation. If you want to join in on the feast— be sure to leave a comment and include the URL to your post so I and others can know of your contribution.

If any of you read my post Writer's Workshop: C is for Cookie you know that I was exposed to Tabasco sauce early on in my life. What you do not know is my natural affinity with the stuff.

According to my father, his Grandmother (my Great Grandmother) was born a McIlhenny. They lived in western Pennsylvania and not on Avery Island. Now… if any of those McIlhenny's from Avery Island ever lived, or even moved to Pennsylvania— then I am truly related to the Tabasco giants. This explains a lot:

  • Now I know why I do not prefer any other type of hot sauce and tend to always buy Tabasco.
  • Now I know why I can stand spicy foods so easily.
  • Now I know why I was so saddened when hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.

Next week I will be on vacation and will have Clark Kent help me out by guest posting for me— so I am not going to have a Friday's feast next week. Do not fear… the theme in two weeks will be "favorites". Do you have any favorite foods, or favorite things that you enjoyed eating as a child. Are there favorite food shows you like to watch, or even your favorite food celebrity. So… if you have anything that relates to this topic, be sure to leave a comment and include the URL so I can include you in the next feast. You now have twice as much time to prepare something— or even find that post from long ago… I'll be sure to add you in.
