Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap

Oh the things we have this week! We have news of boxes that have arrived, including two (yes two!) lbox openings. I know, it has been a while since we opened a mystery box on the air, and these are a real treat. We also have frozen pizza, canned mead, beer, and fancy mac & cheese.

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

Our low-carb adventures continue, as does the adventure of having two kittens. The foods this week are a different kind of adventure, and not the kind we really want to go on. It may be the Spaghetti-O's that did it this week, or maybe the beet chips.

These are the sorts of things that make us question our sanity.

But we soldier on, because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

We have new members of the zoo - two kittens, named Cammy and Rose. We will introduce them in between eating a large number of questionable foods. And since we hit our local Asian food superstore (Grand Asia Market in Cary, NC) there is a lot to choose from. Extra-salty things? Check. Oddly flavored chips? Check. Instant foods? Oh you better believe it.

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

(Note: I put the wrong episode number on the original posting of this one. It is now corrected.)

One of things things Ursula IS allowed to have on her new low-carb lifestyle is red wine. And wine - particularly red - goes right to her head. Which means reading the screed on the back of that package of jerkey late in the show? It's...interesting.

Aside from that, we have some new snacks, new frozen pizza, more strange asian things, and snacks and snacks and snacks. And maybe even breakfast.

All that, and more, when We Eat it, So You Don't Have To!

We're back from Africa, and probably parasite free! And we brought back all kinds of things - mostly stories and pictures, but there are some canned goods from South Africa that we review this week. There is also a plethora of foods, a new beer, and not one, but TWO ciders! 

We're happy to be home, and almost back in this time zone. Maybe not as happy as you are, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Before we go to Botswana and eat all the things, we recorded an extra-long, extra-special episode, with our friend Crimson. Yes, one of the people who provides both good and bad foods, member of the Dorsai Irregulars, and all-around neat guy, Crimson joins us for two hours of eating, talking, ranting, and drinking.

Stories, bad food, good beer, and questionable cider. Everything you love about KUEC, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

A few weeks back we commented that there were whole new flavors of Peeps that we had not seen yet. And frankly, you all delivered, in quantity. So this week, we will try ALL THE PEEPS. Chocolate, Party Cake, Sour Watermellon, and more. Not only that, but frozen hush puppies, heat-stabilized lentils, and a lot more. 

Also, Kevin can drink again, so there is a celebratory beer to go with them.

Once more, putting our pancreases on the line, because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

We have things from fans in Australia! New kinds of TimTams! Honey! EMU JERKY! Snacks in new and suggestive shapes! Oh Australia, we love you!

We also have two frozen pizzas, a new cider, and commentary about the use of safe words in video games. Just another week in our kitchen, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

You can tell, based on some of the choices this week, that we have been housebound due to winter weather here on the east coast. Seriously, why else would we eat this stuff?

Oh, right. Because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Friends, listeners, countrypersons, lend me your ears. Nabisco has produced Red Velvet Oreo Cookies. I kid you not. And we ate them, and they are...

...thought I was going to tell you, didn't you? No, you need to listen and find out about that, the canned german potato salad, the frozen pizzas, and all the other stuff we ate. And as we ask ourselves, "why do we do this again?" We come up with the only answer possible :

We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.
