Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap

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.

Week two of no drinks for Kevin continues, so Ursula takes the burden upon herself with a bottle of ginger beer. OK, not just ginger beer, but ginger beer with vodka! She's making Moscow Mules, and the results are what one would expect.

There is also a duplicate food in the photo, so we replaced it with something else. What could lat be? Listen and find out when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

We're back from Foolscap, MAGFest, and our other travel and ailments, and once more we have a load of new foods to try. Not all is joy, though, since Kevin can't drink for the next 5-6 weeks. No Beer! No Scotch! Just water.

And yet the show must go on. So armed with a 9.5% ABV cider for Ursula and a bottle of flavored water Kevin, we dive into first of the gifts given to us in our travels.

We shall percervere, because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Ursula has been playing a japanese Dating Simulation Game, but with a twist - all the potential beaus are pigeons. Yes, you heard right, pigeons. And she will tell you all about it in case you missed the live tweeting of the game.

We also encounter not one, not two, but THREE kinds of nacho flavors this episode, multiple kinds of chocolate, and a noodle bowl of some sort. All this, and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.

Our friends Cassie and Chris are in from Seattle, and you know what that means! Guests! We will ply them with beer, cider and questionable foods, including but not limited to : breakfast pizza, apple pie jam, and Hello Kitty marshmallows! And they brought things for us - most importantly a "Don't Eat This" hot pepper chocolate bar!

And we delve into the realm of TMI once more, with startling revelations and questionable foods, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

What's this? Two varieties of frozen waffle? Well then, we must eat them both! And is that a variation on peppermint bark? Yes! We should have that over an hour after the waffles! Whatever shall we have in between...

We also have a three pepper cider, frozen pizza, and tropical fruit hard candy with an interesting label. All that and more, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Having survived last week, we jump right back on the bandwagon this week with a whole new selection of things to eat and drink. Among the highlights are cheese straws, ice wine, and a suspicious eggnog praline from Poland. Two out of those three are NOT regretable, but that's OK - there were plenty of other regretable things this week to make up for it.

All that, plus a discussion of lemon balm, and a poor impression of Bob Dylan when We Eat it, So You Don't Have To!

We've started recording on Saturdays so that we have an extra day to recover from the show. The reason for this is because sometimes something we eat REALLY messes with our innards. Not always, but it does happen.

This is one of those weeks. But what did it? Was it the microwave Stromboli? Was it the frozen pizza? Was it, perhaps, the microwavable mashed potatoes? Or even the persimmon beer?

We may never know. What we do know is We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.

We're back from WindyCon, where Ursula was Toastmaster, and so you'll get a bit of a con report along with the foods. There is also an update on the health of Emily the Cat, and on the arrival of Bob the Hermit Thrush. Oh, and we eat some stuff. Some good, some bad, and some...well, you know the drill by now...

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