Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap
Episode 12 - "Roving Bands of Naked Itinerant Irish"

This week we dive into the depths of a Big Lot's and find some real cheap eats. And by cheap, we have stuff for under $2 this week. On the extremely cheap side, we have Hangburger Helper Microwave Singles Cheeseburger Macaroni, followed by Taco Bell Santa Fe Style Beef Bowlz, and finally a NutraSystems Hearty Beef Stew. A grand total of $6 was spent on that part of the review. We also sample Annie Chun's Sesame Seaweed Snacks, Oregon Chai concentrate, and re-visit two past favorites. Along the way, we talk head cheese, read some listener emails, and get a rant on potatoes. 

Just another weekend in our kitchen, where we eat it so you don't have to.

Episode 11 - "Show me the Tentacles! I see no tentacles!"

With Thanksgiving coming up in the U.S. (where we live), it's a Thanksgiving themed show with turkey, stuffing, and potatoes. We introduce Ursula to Idahoan Cheese Potatoes, talk about Banquet Homestyle Bakes Creamy Turkey & Stuffing, Betty Crocker Au Gratin Potatoes, taste Homel Compleats Turkey & Dressing, Oat Revolutions Instant Oats, and then wrap with the adventure in making Marie Callendar's Home Style Creations Stuffing & Turkey. Along the way we compare Ursula to a Sarlac, discuss Kevin's culinary beginnings, dried potatoes, and Ursula's difficulties with textures.

Episode 10 - "Possibly the Soybeans were Circumcised"

This week, we have an interesting mix, starting with Wanchai Ferry. We then give Seeds of Change Caribbean Red Rice it's chance to wow us, both with and without Bragg's Liquid Aminos. Following that, we have Dr. Praeger's Sweet Potato Pancakes (spoiler : Find and Try These), and finally Thai Kitchen Spicy Thai Basil. In between, we talk cats, blimps, soy sauce, and grocery stores. 

Remember, we eat it, so you don't have to - although this week, there is something you HAVE to eat (I realize this is a rarity).

Featured in the picture for this episode is Marv the Cat, rescued in 2007. Also shown is a plush Herpes from Giant Microbes.

Episode 9 - "That's Pretty Badass. And Unsanitary!"

We were in the frozen food section and came upon the Hungry Man Pub Favorites Chopped Beef Steak. One of us exclaimed "For Science!" - and today we'll tell you all about it. We'll also tell you about Patak's Original Butter Chicken with Rice, InnovAsian General Tso's Chicken, and the Voila Cheddar Chicken Potato Skillet Meal. We'll even read some listener emails, discover Heritage Turkeys, and wax nostalgic about meals we've had in the past.
