Cindy McCain's green bean casserole recipe suspiciously like Campbells's


Reporters have just begun to plumb the depths of Cindy McCain's addiction to shoplifting recipes. First she provided the media with several McCain "old family recipes," such as "Ahi Tuna with Napa Cabbage" and "Passion Fruit Mousse," lifted from the Food Network. That should have been a red flag straightaway. Would any of your "old family recipes" call for cremini mushrooms and Napa cabbage? Your Great Aunt Nellie's pantry was stocked with staples like hog jowls and maraschino cherries.

Then she plagiarized Hershey, the foremost proprietor of confectionary goodness. The "Cindy McCain's Oatmeal-Butterscotch Cookies" recipe she gave to Family Circle was just a Hershey's re-dux.

Did she learn anything from this? Indeed. Mrs. McStickyfingers has revisited her recipes and inserted a few changes to make them truly her own. Henry's Travels obtained a copy of one of these. I think her special ingredient is enough to qualify as a substantive change in the recipe. I usually stick to Hill's Senior Hairball Kibble and Greenie's Ocean Fish crunchy bits, but I think this one might be worth a try. The extra roughage would surely improve my digestion.

Well, yes, Henry, if you like the idea of using your litterbox from a distance &mdash a great distance, at that &mdash Cindy's substitution would probably help your litterbox loaves become airborne. Imagine, however, if the miniature Holstein should have the ill luck to be midway between your tuchus and the box. You'd never hear the end of it.

Stick to Ocean Greenie's Fish Crunchage, love.
