Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap
Episode 25 - "It wasn't a fungus, it was Patchouili"

We're back! After a week of good food in New Orleans, we're back to check out the best (and worst) pre-packaged food that we can find. 

We'll start this week by opening a MYSTERY BOX from listeners! What wonders are inside? What horrors might we uncover? Do they love us, or hate us?

After that, we have Michelina's Budget Gourmet Rigatoni and Sauce, Pasta Roni Parmagane Cheese, 7 Days Bake It Spanakopita Rolls, Ethnic Gourmet Korma Simmer Sauce, Hamburger Helper Four Cheese Lasagna, and an amazing unknown Asian Noodles with Cabbage and Sauce!

With all of this, we're drinking Menage a Trois Chardonnay (for Ursula) and Purple Cowboy Tenacious Red (for Kevin).

Add into that our live studio beagle, reader mail, a discussion of tubed pastries, and confusing candy, and it’s another week with Kevin and Ursula!

Remember we eat it so you don't have to!

Episode 24 - "At that price it better have chunks of Paula Deen in it!"

We're in New Orleans and (most of) you are not. But that doesn't mean we don't have a podcast for you! Starting off with Asian Style Sensations Cream Cheese Wontons, we follow that with the Deeamore Trice Baked Potato, attack some Paula Deen "Shore is Good" Seafood Dip, and finish with Stouffer's Corner Bistro Chicken, Broccoli, and Cheddar Stromboli. Along the way, we'll try some 2 Buck Chuck Chardonnay and a little Tempra Tantrum (because, hey, what is Sunday night without wine?), discuss the confusing Italian lunch we had, and be surprised then very disappointed by today's selections. 

Remember folks, we eat it, so you don't have to. 

And right now? Hopefully we're eating crawfish and gumbo, and putting this one behind us...

Episode 23 - "Now I associate Smoothies with Despair."


Travelling next weekend, so we're forced - FORCED WE SAY! - to record two episodes in one day. And that means we start with Breakfast, and Irish Coffee to get us up and moving. And maybe a little tipsy. 

And boy do we need it this morning.

After a brief discussion of local milk, we embark on a culinary adventure with Chef's Omelet Ham and Cheese, Special K Raspberry Cheesecake bars, Jimmy D's Turkey Sausage Sticks, Bob Evans Bacon Stuffers, and Pillsburry Toaster Strudel Cinnamon & Brown Sugar. 

We also talk about last night's dinner, Celentano Frozen Manicotti, a brief word on how Kevin should probably not have survived his youth, and Pillsburry Grands Buttermilk Biscuits.

Remember, we eat it so you don't have to, even in the morning!

Episode 22 - "Maybe the aliens have square nipples"


This week we have foods from several sources, include Wal*Mart (we're so ashamed). We balanced that out with visits to our local Co-Op, and have a whole pile of things to eat about this week, starting with Knorr Pasta Sides Cheddar Broccoli, and then following with TGI Friday's Chicken and Cheese Quesadia Rolls, Snapp's Snack Bites Cheese Sticks, Tandor Chef Palak (Saag) Paneer, and Zataran's Blackend Chicken Alfredo.

Along the way, we discuss Turtle Island Just for Joy Zuppa Italiana Herb and Cheese Soup, Blue Horizons Four Cheese Fettucini Alfredo, and Trader Joe's Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Paired with all that, we have Oak Leaf Vinyards White Zinfindel for Ursula, and Lucky Duck Cabernet Sauvignon for Kevin. Both costs $3, so we're not expecting much. 

We'll also read some listener comments, rant a little, find out how to pronounce "gnocchi," and talk about cow poop. 

Once again, we eat it so you don't have to! Hope you enjoy this week's show!
