Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap
The Chip Interlude - August 2016

We are on our way to Ireland! And so, in order to avoid having what we are starting to call "KUEC stomach" on the airplane, we've got a short (for us) episode where we try four new potato chip flavors. And some alcohol to wash it down because...well, we're eating four new potato chip flavors. 

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

Episode 226 - Return of the Chairman

We're back from Anthrocon, and who should arrive on our doorstep this week, than the chairman himself, Uncle Kage! He has come bearing gifts in the form of Sake and ShoChu, which we pair with Velveeta Chipotle Mac & Cheese, Hot Pockets, pastry puffs, and w hole range of things found on our travels. 

Be warned, this one is not for the faint of heart, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

(Also of note - there is a glitch towards the end, due to a disk issue on the recording machine, so expect a bit of a jump in there)

Episode 225 – Return to Estonia

Have we got a liver-straining show this week! Friend of the show Petrov sent us a selection of Estonian liquors, and we feel it is our duty to taste them all! Honey liquor, Herbert Herbal Liquor, Vanilla Liquor, and 80% (160 proof) Vodka! We'll have it straight and mixed in coffee or tea, as appropriate.

We also have a selection of new foods to try, but it all sort of blurs together when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 224 – Ursula and Tequila at Tenagra

This week, we have a margarita mixer, which means we break out the tequila, which leads to drunken geekery. We also have the biggest frozen pizza we've found to date, beer, mac &  cheese, and lots and lots of chocolate. We even have duck fat caramels. Yes, you read that correctly : DUCK. FAT. CARAMELS.  

This is not a drill folks, this week when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 223 - Beef Jerky Outlet

We have returned from ConCarolinas with stories and new foods. Ursula and friend of the show Brooke visited a Beef Jerky Outlet this past weekend, and we'll start going through their finds. Also, friend of the show Medusa's Mirror brought us a "gift bag" full of interesting foods and good beer. 

Thank goodness for the good beer. 

So sit back, relax, and forget about everything else while We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 222 - Happy Birthday Ursula

What is the best way to celebrate a birthday? Recording a KUEC, of course! 

OK, that is not the BEST way to do it, but after a day of laptop bag hunting - including a visit to the evil retail empire - we needed to drink anyway, so we broke out the beer and wine, pulled out chips, dips, and frozen pigs in a blanket, and hit "Record."

Why? Because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 221 - Tortie, don't step there!

So about 15 mins in, Rose the Tortoise Shell Cat decided to walk across the laptop, stopping the recording. Undaunted, and slightly inebriated, I have learned how to join tracks in Audacity (which I've not had to do to date, mind you) and provide you with this fine podcast. and fine it is, when we eat foods we found in New Orleans, chips sent to us by listeners, and even fine chocolates! 

Oh, and there is beer and coffee syrup and rum, too. All that and more when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 220 - I am fair - even if it kills me

Once upon a time, we picked up a bottle of Dandelion Wine in WVa. This weekend, we actually try drinking it. I also found Candied Bacon Jerky on Amazon, and you KNOW I had to order that. We also have another Southern Pines Brewery Beer, a Malbec from Texas, and another Screamin' Sicilian frozen pizza. 

There is also ice cream, cookies, and dried SPAM chunks this week, when We Eat It, So You Don't have To!

Episode 219 - Yellow Cake Uranium Chocolate

This week we explore a tactical error on Ursula's part - she let me (Kevin) choose the foods. She usually does that, and has words about the choices. But in the mix there is a new to us variety of SPAM, chips from Japan, and some recent finds at CostCo.

Oh yes, we have access to a CostCo now. Be afraid, be almost as afraid as we are.

All that, plus beer, wine, and yet another unnatural cookie flavor, when We Eat It, So You Don't have To!
