This week’s question is from Riley H.
Q: I was just curious if you were close to the rest of your family. Such as Mr. Ham or Senor Tenderloin.
A: Dear Curious,
How did you hear about Senor Tenderloin? The last time I saw that cut of meat he was soaking in a ginger soy marinade. Before he got plated, I heard rumors that he’d been seen with some organic asparagus. It’s a shame really. He always seemed like a level-headed loin.
Now Mr. Ham is another story. He and I, well, we came from the same swine. That guy was like a brother to me. Taught me what it means to be cured. I’ll always remember the pride and contentment on his face when they drizzled him with honey mustard and set him in the center of the Easter table. He was the best Ham I ever knew.
