I'm not a big pork guy, but my latest favorite "internet cowpoo" recipe is the diablo sandwich.

Some people say it's a sloppy joe, and those liars need a slap in the mouth to wake 'em up.

The pedantry over a throwaway scene in a movie about smuggling coors is just so petty. People are scouring blu-ray copies of smokey and the bandit to get their story straight. The sacred texts!

In the movie, Buford Justice has a hunger, and he hasn't got a GOT DAMNED lot of time to waste.

So he orders a diablo sandwich and a dr pepper.


Honestly, there is another video where a guy goes to the sole remaing hickory house, but that sandwich looked like sawdust, mold, and sadness.


The wikipedia "non notability" deletion is also deliciously bitchy.

here is a delightfully ancient looking blog

I have not had trappey's mexi-pep hot sauce, but now I want to.


If you don't eat pork, might I interest you in some liars risotto?

Specifically,  I watched a bunch of risotto videos and was reminded of the liars creme brule (blowtorch some vanilla pudding)

A liars risotto does require a bit more effort than liars creme brule, but not a lot.

First you heat up some oil in a pan. Then squash and dice garlic (press) and onion (dice finely)

Bring those up to a nice mix, then set aside.

Next, make a box of chicken rice-a-roni. Or knorr, I'm not a cop. The reason you want chicken flavor is that real risotto uses chicken stock.

Next, combine your lovely sauteed veggies to your crapbox rice.

Next, add a tablespoon of sour cream and stir the crap out of it. Next, serve to Gordon Ramsay to see how angry you can make him.

SBR has the fart nozzle, to put it crudely, but the cap is still a flat top.
Hunts isn't much good for anything, they're an also ran, and their sauces run watery. I'm not a fan.

I do like the tabasco bbq sauce, it could be used for a decent diablo sandwich, if inaccurate.

And yup, Grocery outlet has mostly become my OSS (one stop shop)

I love trying new sauces, but I have to say I'm getting a little tired of everything being sweet.

I'm actually surprised how many new sauces the dollar tree has.

That sounds great.  I'm having the usual tea and scone for breakfast with jam.

Some days there's not enough caffeine in the world.  Got 3 hours of sleep and feel like a zombie.

Sweet Baby Ray's barbeque sauce has a squeeze top instead of the kind where you end up pouring half the bottle on whatever you are trying to sauce up.  We got some other variety supposed to be better for you in that it has cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.  It wasn't as good.  I am tempted to say Hunt's?  Some Grocery outlet .99 special.

Got some Newman's own family Italian dressing at Safeway yesterday, it's on sale.  It's hot so we eat salads often for dinner.

I did it again.

I noticed the French's mustard cap and tabasco bbq sauce cap were the same size.

Honestly, BBQ sauce should have an applicator cap, but those primitive apes all do screwtop.

The French's mustard cap looks bless'ed ridiculous on top of a hot sauce bottle, like a sombrero.

I suppose this is a cost effective way of doing things. Instead of buying $2.99 Kraft salad dressings to get my switch caps, I can buy Dollar Store French's Mustard and get essentially the same result. Hell, the French's cap has a finer application nozzle than the salad dressing.

Stupid topic to bump, but life is hard, and this is silly.

Tonight I made steamed fine beans which are then tossed in a little sweet chilli sauce, chestnut mushrooms in a satay sauce, backed Basa (river cobbler) and some jasmin rice.

I could eat it again if I'd made more!

Roast potatoes.

Sounds like a great alternative to the usual olive oil.  thanks.

I wondered where you'd gone, 6. I ruled out that you'd gone on a bender but now I'm not so sure ...

I haven't overindulged on alcohol since I was a stupid teenager.  Now a couple glasses of wine or whatever, and I'm done.  Just had a slice of nice thick crust pizza with eggplant but it was disappointing.  They didn't really do anything with it but layer it over some tomato sauce and toss a little cheese on top.  Eggplant is a difficult vegetable but it can be magical if cooked well.  Next time I'm going back to my regular putanesca slice.

I'd like to learn how to make a good foccacia.  I haven't had a great deal of experience working with yeasted breads, but it would be fun to figure out how to do it well.   There's a great bakery near here that makes a French foccacia called a fougasse.   Their recipe includes rosemary, preserved lemons and duck fat.  It doesn't last long after it comes out of the oven as it flies off the shelves.  I love duck, but when we cook it we don't really know what to do with the fat.  We usually pour it into a jar and stick it in the fridge for a few months and then we throw it away, not having figured out what to do with it.

I had dinner from the "remorse" food category:
steamed broccoli, carrots & mushrooms with baked potato & sour cream.  Had to eat some good ice cream for dessert as a corrective.

Now I'm contemplating pouring a glass of alcohol containing wine.
