Chateaubriand Steak

Quote for Today:  Waiter:   How would you like your steaks cooked?  Pepper:  Oh, just knock its horns off, wipe its nasty ass, and chunk it right here on this plate.  Woody Harrelson “The Cowboy Way” (1994)   Today in Food History… On September 4th, 1768 Francois-Rene de Chateaubriand was born.  Living in a very volatile time in the history of France, especially for an aristocrat, Francois-Rene had his share of ups and downs including two terms of exile, one in America which inspired his first writings and the other in England living in extreme poverty.  As a young man he was torn between the military and becoming a priest.  How ironic it is that he became the founder of romanticism in French literature.

And, there is where I got confused. Actually Velveeta was first made by Caleb Hommel of the Monroe Cheese Company in 1908. In 1923, the Velveeta Cheese Company was formed and eventually sold to Kraft Foods in 1927. Sorry Mr. Gerber, I think Caleb beat you by a...
