Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap

What's this? Two varieties of frozen waffle? Well then, we must eat them both! And is that a variation on peppermint bark? Yes! We should have that over an hour after the waffles! Whatever shall we have in between...

We also have a three pepper cider, frozen pizza, and tropical fruit hard candy with an interesting label. All that and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Having survived last week, we jump right back on the bandwagon this week with a whole new selection of things to eat and drink. Among the highlights are cheese straws, ice wine, and a suspicious eggnog praline from Poland. Two out of those three are NOT regretable, but that's OK - there were plenty of other regretable things this week to make up for it.

All that, plus a discussion of lemon balm, and a poor impression of Bob Dylan when We Eat it, So You Don't Have To!

We've started recording on Saturdays so that we have an extra day to recover from the show. The reason for this is because sometimes something we eat REALLY messes with our innards. Not always, but it does happen.

This is one of those weeks. But what did it? Was it the microwave Stromboli? Was it the frozen pizza? Was it, perhaps, the microwavable mashed potatoes? Or even the persimmon beer?

We may never know. What we do know is We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.

We're back from WindyCon, where Ursula was Toastmaster, and so you'll get a bit of a con report along with the foods. There is also an update on the health of Emily the Cat, and on the arrival of Bob the Hermit Thrush. Oh, and we eat some stuff. Some good, some bad, and some...well, you know the drill by now...

All this, and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Halloween might be over, but there are still some scary things in the grocery store. Like Tofurky Sausage pizza, or quinoa mac & cheese. I wish I was making the last one up, I really, really do. 

We also sample a new-to-us cider, a 12% ABV beer, tequilla candies, and a whole lot more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have to.

We have a new kind of chip, and despite the name, it required additional investigation. We also have a ton of snack foods from a well known supplier of clearance items, a few new-to-us items from the local co-op, and at least two ringers - thinks we're pretty sure are awesome.

There may even be discussion of a current online kerfluffle, and much swearing.

All this, and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

One of the local growers here likes hot peppers. And this week, they had in the first of their Carolina Reaper harvest, and shared one with Kevin. He eats it live on air, and you get to hear all about it.

Aside from that, there is also another noodles with cheese, noodles with cajun sauce, noodles with pork and tea...it is, in fact, a noodle and sugar heavy show. There is also beer, cider, and Astronaut food.

All that, and more, when We Eat it, So You Don't Have To.

(Also, a correction - yes, the two year space mission was unmanned. We know that now. Um, sorry)

This week we have a lot of starchy snacks, yet another mac & cheese, and a selection from the category of freeze-dried astronaut foods. We also get a glimpse into Kevin's psyche, settle a bet, and discover the many uses of walnut oil.

All that and more, when We Eat it, So You Don't Have To!

Ursula has returned from Springfield, IL, and has stories to tell. While she is doing that, Quinoia will be cooked with curry, Seven-Demon Vodka will be poured, and DIY Pork Rinds will be consumed.

And that's just the tip of the cheese balls, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.

We're back, and this week, Ursula tries a Southern delacacy : moonshine! She drinks it out of a Mason jelly jar, as is required by Southern tradition. We also have the first of the seasonal pumpkin spice foods, which appear in September along with the Christmas decorations.

We do not speak of the Christmas decorations.

All that, and more (including mac & cheese), when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.
