Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap

Feb 7, 2011


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!

Hi guys! Your podcasts break up the horrible, brain-melting monotony of grading and proofreading lab reports, and I thank you for this.
Someone may have suggested this already, but if you're still wanting to convert all the ratings to out of 10, just do 8/9 = .88 * 10 = 8.8 (out of 10). You could make Excel do that for you pretty easily.
A grad student's opinion on $1 pasta: I've tried most of the Knorr side pastas and Pasta Roni, and have to say that the Pasta Roni comes out on top. The Knorr garlic shells are alright, but surprisingly bland for something so garlicy. The Pasta Roni's pretty bland too, but I normally add a selection of dried herbs and spices (garlic, paprika, pepper, parsley, onion flakes) to the Pasta Roni that makes it a lot less bland. The Knorrs I've tried haven't lent themselves well to my spicing treatment. Blank canvas vs. irredeemably, offensively bland.
Don't try the Knorr chicken. For the love of God, don't try the Knorr chicken-flavored. Ugh.
