Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap
Episode 38 - "Now I remember why we drink heavily"

It Came From The Piggly-Wiggly this week, as we review multiple items from the Pig which we will loosely call food. In between the horrors of Freezer Queen and the abyssal depths of the Piggly Wiggly house brand, we find time to discuss episiotomies, the strange cases of witchcraft related genital vanishments (Kevin is very sorry about this, he tried to stop her, really he did) and what to do if you are trapped on a desert island with only scab-shaped frozen pizzas.

This time you should be glad that We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.

Episode 37 - "It's a severed limb that tastes like health food"

Kevin gets drunk on Arrogant Bastard Ale. There is food as well, but that's really the important bit. We discuss the nature of cheap food, Scotch eggs, chicken slurry, a truly dreadful thing from Betty Crocker, a story about maggots, and play "Health Food Or Severed Limb?" with frozen eggplant.

Episode 36 - "Give me the scissors! And the bottle cap!"

An exciting episode, as we recount our exciting visit to The Place Our Food Comes From, and our rather more exciting encounter with a snapping turtle in the road. There is also food! We analyze the sodium content of things we eat, conclude that we are doomed, drink horrible sangria, explore my fear of drowning in the car, rhapsodize about kohlrabi, make bean soup, and for once, I do not actually tell any awful stories about my relatives, although the phrase "sugar bush" is thrown around with great abandon.

Episode 35 - "The Aardvark Did It!"

Today there is bad beer. And also good beer. There is bad soup. And also good soup. There is good chocolate and even more good chocolate. There is mediocre wine, mediocre egg rolls, and a chicken casserole so uninteresting that I have already forgotten it. Along the way, we cover squeaky aardvarks, my childhood desire for a window seat, the cruel illusion of the "Lo" heat setting, why we cannot seem to stop eating Knorr pasta side dishes, and the newly discovered glory of kohlrabi.

Remember we eat (and drink) it, so you don't have to!

Episode 34 - "Shine on you crazy, dog-grooming diamond"

It's a Trader Joe's extravaganza today, as we sample meatloaf "muffins" (no, really) Mac & Cheese bites, Garlic Fries and Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout. Along the way we visit the highways and byways of the Kashi Pesto Pasta Primavera and the comparative ghetto of the Banquet Chicken Nugget Meal (Hint: Tastes Like Cardboard!) and round it off with memories of Cheese Blintzes, dead relatives, and speculation into asparagus, dog groomers, and the breeding habits of deep-fried mac & cheese.

Ursula pairs all this with a Villa Alena Moscato Sweet White Wine (Kevin has the beer).

Thankfully (maybe not for us), once again we eat it, so you don't have to!
