Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap
Episode 237 - Live from Arisia!

This week, we have a special treat - KUEC recorded LIVE at Arisia 2017! This is a dream come true for Kevin, and despite a technical glitch or two, a lot of fun. We want to thank everyone who came out, everyone who brought "tributes," and the Arisia staff who made it all possible.

This one is PURELY for the fans, and we hope you like it, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

2017 is here! And for the first episode of 2017, we have the last episode recorded in 2016 - that is, New Year's Eve 2016. And what a treat we have, a box of "goodies" from Greece! Revel at the mysteries uncovered! 

OK, they are only mysteries because we don't read modern Greek, but we do our best to figure it out based on the pictures. And in the less mysterious, a box from SofaWolf, with all kinds of tasty things in it. And not-so-tasty things, because it is KUEC, after all. 

So greetings, 2017 from 2016, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

It is the holiday season, and didn't want to punish our systems with a full meal, so we're drinking chocolate and reading some of your letters. 

Have a Happy Holiday for whatever Holiday you may or may not celebrate, and we'll be back next week, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 235 – A Sad Waste of Cow

Do other people wander through their bulk retailers, big-box stores, and groceries looking at every little thing just to yell "For Science!" when they discover something new and different? Do other people grab that bag of fig pops going "well, someone has to do it?"

Are we the only people who are both thrilled and terrified when fans send us boxes?

This past week has seen all of the above, and the results are...interesting. In addition to that, there is a discussion of survivalists, not to mention the bit where We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 234 - Gir's Wake

We are sad to announce that KUEC is no longer recorded in front of a live kitchen beagle. This week, we remember the life of Gir the Beagle, and drink to his honor. 

There is also the usual run of foods, including a thing that should not be (hint: it has kale), a thing that should be, and a thing that we might kill for to have again.

That last bit might be the alcohol talking, but you can find out what it is, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.

Episode 233 – Not as Good as the Ones that were Recalled

This week, we roll through a plethora of interesting odds and ends from the Mexican markets in Arizona. We also ask important questions like : what does a sweet and sour salted plum taste like? Is coconut candy any different in Mexico than it is here? Do we really need to eat Hot Liquid Candy?

We will answer these questions, while asking a whole lot more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 232 - El Diablo Tortilla

Oh glorious day, one of our lovely listeners unleashed an army of minions to find a Paqui Tortilla Carolina Reaper Madness Chip, single serve in a little red coffin box. There is also a selection of honey from around the world, more things Canadian, noodles, donut holes, and even pumpkin spice latte from the K-Cup machine.

But no one cares about that. The important question is : will this be the Carolina Reaper product that finally brings Kevin his doom? Find out this week, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Interlude - Still Here

Episode 231 – 69 year old Lisa Simpson

As you can see from the photo this week, there is a ton of things for us to eat. Which is a good thing, as we have our friend Natalie visiting from Montreal, and we will need the extra foods. We also make a Finish infused liquor as part of the show,discuss the US election, and drink heavily.

Frankly, we are drinking heavily any time the subject of the US Election comes up, in the hopes that our livers are ready for Election night itself. And if the worst happens, well, at least we won't feel it.

Until then, though, We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Recovery Interlude 2 - October 2016

We're back (sort of) now that Kevin's mouth is healing from the second (of three, we hope) oral surgeries. While he can't eat most things, we can read your  letters, drink some beers, and try out some easy-to-chew things to tide you over until we get the "all clear" from his periodontist.

There is also discussion of a possible new hound, why we need another hound, and the patience of a one-eyed cat. All that, and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!
