Scrapple is a tasty, traditional Pennsylvania Dutch breakfast food. Slice thin, fry or broil it. In Southeastern Pennsylvania, where I come from, it's a local favorite. It is made up of 50% cornmeal and 50% pork "products"...including, as it's said: "everything but the oink".
(We try not to dwell on that o'ermuch)

I bring it up because of the website that got me into this whole "blogosphere" scene in the first place, which is ScrappleFace.

A number of the "regulars" had been discussing some type of get-together for quite a while, so a few of us actually went ahead and started organizing one, which I've been tentatively calling "ScrappleFest".

Anyway, Western Pennsylvania seems to be relatively central to many of the "Scrapplers", so during Labor Day Weekend a bunch of us will converge there.

It ought to be an interesting gathering...

Oooh, oooh!

A chance for the oft discussed "boberin pinata"
I can hardly wait.
Camo says it isn't so but I'm guessing he is just in charge of "luring" me in.

Paranoia will destroy ya.

I'm rather fond of it myself, but then, I am part Pennsylvania Dutch...

Paranoia is for those that fear an imagined threat. I'm not imagining mine...

As for scrapple, I ate it often in my youth, my parents loved it. However, I have never purchased any on my own but, if pressed could surely eat some, really not too bad

Yessir! That there scrapple sounds goo-ood! And so does the scrapplefest.

I hope to see BobErin (yeah, both of ya!)there, too. I'm sure no pinatas will be harmed during the fest itself...

I'm certain that you must be familiar with that old "sticks and stones" maxim.

And scrapple, prepared correctly, is yummy!

I hope you make it to the ScrappleFest, too.

Deep fried, ideally.

And get your own coffee! :-)

I like both.

Maybe we could have a ScrabbleFest at the ScrappleFest.
(I'm pretty good at Scrabble)

We should definitely make sure that we have some actual scrapple at the ScrappleFest.

I'll see if I can persuade Bob & Erin to join the festivities...
