Luckily, the thought of not getting to go on a date still gets the dishes done here!

And don't forget, at some point, they grow up and move away. My mother got a dishwasher right after I moved away...and, for those without children who do a lot of cooking and have gadgets to wash, a dishwasher is a really nice appliance to have.

I think my biggest (and busiest) kitchen gadget IS my dishwasher!

Okay if you insist, but, then I'll have to give up the designation of being Frank Z's grandmother and I don't want to part from it.

Just for giggles:
How about a HAMburger? Made from ham?
How about french fries, made from french people?
Hot dogs, made from dogs?
Hamburger - named for the city in Germany, not the pork product

French Fries - fried in the French manner, does not promote cannibalism

Hot Dogs - yes, once made from dog meat.

Hmm.... I've always been lead to believe hot dogs were originally called "Dachshund sandwiches" due to how the sausage looks on the bun, and it evolved into "hot dog" because of someone who couldn't spell Dachshund. Never seen/heard anything from a reliable source that they used to be made of dog meat.

That's true. It happened in NYC. A sports writer couldn't spell dachshund so called them hot dogs. But it's also true that in old time Germany, eating dog meat in sausage form was common. And maybe that's why they originally got he name Dachshund in the first place!

Sounds reasonable- I'm sure dog meat was cheap. I thought you were saying that's why they're called hot dogs though :)
