Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap
Episode 33 - "She went off the pill and her eyeballs exploded"

Happy Easter (if you celebrate it)! We are NOT eating easter foods, but since we're going to Easter dinner, we recorded lunch. And what a lunch! We had some Pasta-Roni Garlic & Olive Oil Vermacelli, tried a Lean Cuisine Swedish Meatballs meal, an Evol Veggie Fajita Burrito, and experienced a Smart Ones Home Style Pot Roast. In addition, Ursula will try a Man-Bait Maple Bacon Lollipop, we'll talk about InnovAsian Spicy Beef & Broccoli Family Meal Kit, discuss the El Monterey Cheese Enchiladas, and discuss the Pork Ribs Kevin made last night.

You'll also get Kevin's Tuna Salad recipe, and get to hear a very confused Ursula eating a Mega Sandias con Chile y Sal Watermelon lollipop.

Remember, we eat it, so you don't have to - even if Ursula can't figure it out.

Episode 32 - "The chicken's brain will be made of corn?"

So we got this box from our friend Yassbet in Arizona. It has some really cool stuff in it, so we're eating it. We'll start with Soupless Ramen Teriyaki Salsa, and then dive into the CANDY! Salsa-Getti, Ibarra Chocolate, and a Guava Roll. We'll also go back in time with a Banquet Salisbury Steak, explore the amazing packaging in the Marrie Callender's Chicken Portobello Risotto, and try Nancy's Seafood Crabcakes. With all that, we will have Abita Abbey Ale (Kevin) and Duplin County Beaufort Bay wine (Ursula). 

All this and discussions of corn, you'll meet one of our cats, and if the local Mexican grocery is a Bodega or not. 

And remember, we eat it, so you don't have to!

Episode 31 - "He had this advanced medical condition where his penis had fallen off"

This week, we're going back to our roots, and eating low-brow. And by low-brow, we're talking Hungry Man Pub Meals Popcorn Chicken with Spicy Rum BBQ Sauce! And White Castle Microwavable Cheeseburgers! And even Stofer's Welsh Rarebit. We'll also talk about two things from earlier this week, Honey Glazed Green Beans, and Buitoni Grilled Vegetable & Goat Cheese Agnolotti with White WIne Sauce. You'll also get the low-down on Ursula's Step-Grandfather, and maybe get more information than you bargain for. 

 

We're not drinking this week, since we had to drive right after recording (whichis also why this week's episode is posted a little late).

 

Remember, we eat it so you don't have to - even when it's a whole POUND of FOOD!

 

(And we're wondering who waits for me to say "Oh Lord" because you KNOW she's about to start...)

Episode 30 - "All the hot dogs have floated to the top"

We fond all KINDS of cheap eats for this week. We start out with something from a truck stop - Heater Meals Mushroom Gravy, Mashed Potatoes & Beef. It heats itself! We also mix up some Zuko Mango Drink Mix, try out Pasta Leonardo Au Gratin PotatoesMarket Street Classics Beans and FranksKahiki Tempura Chicken, and Knorr Asia Sides Thai Sesame Noodles. We'll also discuss our experiences with Japanese Style Alimentary Paste Curry Udon and Zatarain's Zesty French Quarter Pasta Bake, read some listener mail, and play "where's the Beagle?"

Along the way we'll have a little Siera Nevada Kellerweis Hefeweizen and a Bartles & James Margarita cooler. 

Remember, we eat it, so you don't have to, even when it heats itself!
