alabama ass whuppin ... it was nice to meet you to

Alabama Ass Whuppin dropped by and had these kinds words to say

"I met Leon (ChutneyMan) this Saturday at a local farmers market. I spent a good 30-45 minutes with Leon as he took me through several of his flavors on a plastic spoon. But the added bonus was the the conversation went from food to life back to food then more life."
