Times are Changing
Pillsbury finally caught up with real life.
Pillsbury cookie dough rolls have been around since the 1950s, so all my life.
As a child, I would eat more dough than actual cookies. (I have since found out that the sugar content is higher in uncooked dough, so the sugar rush makes sense.)
Is there a female who didn't regularly have a roll of cookie dough in the refrigerator, strictly to be eaten uncooked?
About 10 years ago I started to hear the warnings that eating raw cookie dough was dangerous. Raw butter and raw eggs in the dough left the eater open to salmonella.
It didn't stop me.
Once those warnings to not eat raw dough became more prevalent, Nestle came up with an edible version of cookie dough. Sorry, I'm a Pillsbury fan. Plus, it cost twice as much.
I will admit I buy cookie dough by the tub, the big tub, the type of tub you buy at BJ's or Costco's. The tub that's good for 100+ cookies.
I noticed the other day that my Pillsbury tub is now marked as "Safe to eat raw."
All I could think was that Pillsbury finally caught up with the reality of what people actually do.
And things can change, hopefully for the better.
Now when Jesus heard that John was arrested, he went to Galilee. He left Nazareth and settled in Capernaum, which lies alongside the sea in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali. This fulfilled what Isaiah the prophet said:
Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, alongside the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles, the people who lived in the dark have seen a great light, and a light has come upon those who lived in the region and in shadow of death.
From that time Jesus began to announce, “Change your hearts and lives! Here comes the kingdom of heaven!” (Matthew 4:12-17)
