Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap

This show will leave our heroes feeling bloated and confused, as not only are there way too many chips, there is also more mac & cheese, pastry puffs, and even stout from Scotland.

 

The hangover on the day after recording it totality worth it, because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

We are back from Europe! We've been to Germany, we've been to England, and we've had adventures. Some of which we'll tell you about. And some we won't. Yet.

We also have a whole new run of foods to tryh, including something made from coconut and parsnips. I am not making this up. I am also not making up the fact that it is dill pickle flavored. 

Forftunately, we have a pile of other things to eat as well, and you are invited to hear all about it, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

So hey, we told you this isn't for kids, right? I mean, we say that at the start of every episode now, and this week, we keep to that promise. Yes, Grown-ups talking about Grown-up things. Like 401Ks. Just because, you know, that's what we all talk about once we pass 35, right?

In other news, there are three kinds of chips this week, yet another mac & cheese, and not one, not two, but five different kinds of alcohol. 

Why? Because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

It is the time of year when Lay's Potato Chips release their "test" flavors for the year, and we've got two of the four choices on hand this week. You may have seen at least one of them on our twitter feeds, because we love to share the horrors we find in the stores there as well.

We also dig into some instant potatos, more mac and cheese, some expensive shochu, and what we hope is the last of the scary Chips Ahoy cookies. 

We should be so lucky, here when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Sometimes when a question is asked, you need to drunk dial someone to get the answer. In this case, that someone was Ursula's Mom. What prompted the call? A small jar of honey from a Basilica in Italy. 

Noone in our families are safe, when We Eat It, So You Don'T Have To!

You've heard the storeis, and this week, you can meet the legend. Yes, our crazy birder friend Tina is in town, and in this two hour episode, she has volunteered to eat cheap with us. Little does she know what she's in for...

We have beer, bad chocolate, wine, cider, popcorn, and some surprises, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

We are in between trips, and so decided it was time to catch up on the backlog of macaroni and cheese that has built up. Three kinds of boxed mac & cheese and four different frozen kinds, which takes care of the bulk of things, but not all of it. And by the end...well, you'll have to listen to find out.

Of course, there are beagles and stories and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

There are so many ways to interpret the title of this one. They may all be valid. When the alcohol hits, we REALLY need that disclaimer. 

In other news, Kevin cooks, from scratch, LIVE on this show. No, really, he does. There are also frozen things, several candies, things that should not be eaten, and at least two kinds of Cheez-Its. Why?

As I sit here, nursing my hangover from this episode, I can only wonder what Ursula's will be like come morning. You see, we didn't reaize that the cider she had chosen was 10% ABV, which is about twice what she normally drinks. So there is that.

There is also steak and kidney pie, a pasta sides knock-off, French cookies, Japanese candies, expired things, and more!

All here, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Spring is here, and that means mojitos for Ursula. As there are new herbs in the garden (not that kind), Ursula is mixing two different mojitos to see which tastes better.

There are also a variety of chips, a knock-off mac & cheese, chocolates, and at least two beers. 

All that and the coconuts' agenda, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.
