Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap
Episode 96 - LizardBeth Visits!

Joining us this week is our freind LizardBeth, who came down to KUEC headquarters for a visit. It's an extra-long episode - almost two hours - and we subject her to the ups and downs of Eating Cheap. Tuna Jerky? Check! Strange Asian Candy? Check! Teryaki Soda? Check!  

OK, There may also have been a bit of "revenge food" for the Durian Cookies she gave us earlier this year. 

We had fun, and so did she, because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

No, we did not actually eat anything Narwhal in this episode, but they are discussed. Other things discussed include a new load of compost, why Ursula is so drunk this time, and the merits of Hot Pockets as "not food." 

In between all that we eat more things from our friends in Chicago, try a new cider, and review more Hamburger Helper. 

All this and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 94 - All The Wyomings

First up, I apologize for calling this one Episode 93 when it is, in fact, Episode 94. Don't let the intro fool you, this really is Episode 94, not Episode 93.

We start off with a discussion of an Irish Gift Shop in France, and the beer Ursula brought back from there. There is also a discussion of food evangelists, a discussion of one of Kevin's many madnesses, and eventually the best cheesecake Kevin has ever eaten (Hint: It is NOT the one pictured or reviewed in this podcast). 

Be regaled with stories of Ursula's grandmother! Hear the miracle of the soap evangelist! And find out what the best chocolate we have ever reviewed is, because it is in this episode.

All this and more when We Eat It So You Don't Have To!

Episode 93 - Vegemite vs. Marmite

When a fan in Australia sent us a tube of Vegemite, there was only one thing to do - aquire a jar of Marmite and have a yeast-product face off! (Many thanks to DJ Psyche in the UK for sending over the Marmite). And so with toast in hand, we bravely go where we have not gone before...

...there is also French wine that is too good for us, more food from our friends Dan and Tom, a box containing all kinds of goodies from a fan, and not one but two foods that have Ursula remarking upon it's color. 

All that and more, because We Eat It, So YOu Don't Have To!

Episode 92 - Revenge of the Poppers

While we were in Chicago, our freinds Dan and Tom took us to this amazing Asian Market. And then they sent us all the stuff they so kindly bought for us there. If they didn't take us for good beer and great dining while we were there, I'd guess they didn't like us. There is Teryaki Soda in there. We don't drink it this week, but still - TERYAKI SODA, PEOPLE!


In other news, we do play catch up on several of the things we ate while on hiatus, pull stuff out of various boxes that you, the listeners, sent us, and have a grand old time. Right up until the end...

Ursula is back from France, Kevin isn't working 14 hour days, and so We Eat it, So You Don't Have To once again!

(Did you know that George Lucas had originally titled Star Wars Episode 6 "Revenge of the Jedi" but switched to "Return of the Jedi" after deciding that a Jedi wouldn't be out for Revenge? That has aboslutely NO bearing on this episode, but it is an interesting tidbit of geek folklore.)
