A Cinco de Mayo Erwin Pawn Tradio show was your's for the listening last Saturday.  We bought.  We sold.  We played a lot of Mexican music.

After all was said and done on Sunday I realized I got a bit too much mayo in my cinco.  I had a hangover rivaling the one I had for New Year's 2010.

Ok, not that bad.  I didn't get off the couch for two days then.  I was moving by lunch on Sunday.

THE BIG QUESTION

We ask each caller a big question when they call in their items.  I don't have any issues with Cinco De Mayo, other than the fact that most people have no idea what we are celebrating, just that we are.  There is resistance to the celebration by some and that was my big question.  I played with the wording a little bit.

Cinco De My-Yes or Cinco-De-My-No?

Being The New 940 KIXZ is a conservative talk station I thought 'no' would rule the day.  Thankfully I was wrong.  The listeners of Tradio seem to embrace the holiday for any number of reasons.

25 YES 17 NO

RULE #6

Rule #6 this week was a matter of baking.  It is a really good rule because it really happened to me last week.

Resources at my house are pretty skim these days.  We are broke and don't have much food in the cupboard.  My girlfriend decided to make some peanut butter cookies.  We've got this huge bag of pecans and I suggested she include those in the mix.

Big. Mistake.

The first bite reveals a bitter overtone.  The peanut butter flavor and the pecan flavor just doesn't mesh well.  Underneath the bitter overtone the flavors combine in a nasty way again to give you a slightly scorched flavor, although the cookies are not burned or even overly brown.   The flavor then gets a little better but again peanut butter and pecans seem to be totally at odds with one another.  The cookies are edible and even if they weren't we'd still be eating them.  Can't waste food.  We found that out when I cooked up those two year old freezer burnt pork chops.

RULE #6: DON'T PUT PECANS IN PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

See you next Saturday for The Erwin Pawn Tradio Show!
