This Week in Deliciousness
Was this kangaroo cooked in a sauce made with pale ale? Because it tastes... hoppy.
Welcome back to the weekly roundup here at Eating Our Words, where we're organizing a bonfire of Paula Deen cookbooks. We found Savannah Style a mere two shelves over from Alain Chapel's La cuisine c'est beaucoup plus que des recettes in the bookstore and we're not going to stand for it anymore.
Pretty much the whole country got some rain this week, which is why we came back from the long weekend with a good stroganoff recipe. We also looked into whether or not non-pasteurized cheese is bad for you, and so far most everyone who eats it seems to be surviving just fine, although we are a little worried about the Europeans. They generally look pretty malnourished and sickly.
Our own Jeff Balke has been taking photos of amazing cuisine for so long, it's no wonder he'd like to actually eat some one day. It's kind of surprising that many breweries started running out of beer to taste at the BrewHaHa, but then again if there was a bunch left over, somebody might get bored and try to fry some. Yes, idle hands truly are the Devil's workshop.
Ever waited on people? Then you're probably a fan of these four movies, although no bitchy customers get killed in any of them, so clearly there's still room for at least one more.
Finally, you can take this quiz to see exactly how filthy your kitchen is. TWiD took it, and someone knocked on our door an hour later to tell us we'd caused Marvin Zindler to spin in his grave so rapidly that CenterPoint was looking for ways to use him as a turbine to generate electricity. Okay fine, hand us the Lysol.
