I like most REAL foods. There isn't much I would kick off my plate. Veggies, meats, dairy... you name it. All good to me.

But I do turn into a real snob at the mere site of processed foods. I draw the line at spongy white bread, processed meats (some sausages aside), or anything with Kraft Singles/Velveeta/Cheese Whiz on it. Blecch.

That's pretty much my attitude.

I was once asked if I would like cream cheese on my toast and I was given Cheese Whiz.

That was nasty. What is Cheese Whiz? Why would someone put "whiz" in the name of something meant to be eaten?

cheese whiz has a singular purpose in the world. it is meant for philly cheesesteaks.

This. I also think those Velveeta and shells packs are good, but they gotta be spruced up with some broccoli or peas, BLSLCB, and topped with croutons. Of course, a real macaroni and cheese blows it away but I at least think they taste pretty good.

It is also great for entertaining scuba students on their first openwater dives. The fish love the stuff! Of course, exposed toes with pink nail polish are very attractive to triggerfish, but as far as entertainment value to said student, not so much.

You got that right. It works well in some warm dips, but cheesesteaks is it's calling.

Technically, that would be an incubated fertile duck egg. If fertile eggs are not brooded or incubated, the ducklings/chicks don't develop. Chicken eggs are kept 1-10 days before they are put in the brooder (incubator), I know one chicken keeper who keeps them in the fridge for a week before she puts them in the incubator. I think the incubator heat needed is 99 degrees--if one of my hens goes broody, I might hatch a few chicks next Spring...not sure yet..(I didn't realize that the hens will flip the eggs--if there are other eggs in the nest box, the hen will turn the other eggs over while waiting to lay her egg).

Eating that duckling was downright gross. Depending on the species, a 3-week old duck egg would be 7 days away from hatching (duck eggs take 28-35 days).
