brown is a flavour now, apparently

I can't believe I actually fed my family store-bought brown the other day


but I more than made up for it with the butter art yesterday

Add in a package of fake stuffing and you're good to go.

Deb said...

Well aren't we a pair of blazing trails bloggers?.

Me - milk
You - gravy/butter

Yeeha, we rock.

(I use that plastic gravy quite often in a pinch. We almost like it)

Stephanie said...

dude that butter art is awesome

i'm so jealous of you seeing Matt Good tomorrow/today.... but I guess I got 3 shows, I should be satisfied...

have fun - it's going to be amazing, he's totally unbelievable this tour

Mmmm...butter.

One of my dirty little culinary secrets is that I like to use the poultry gravy base that comes in a big plastic jar from Costco.

mellowlee said...

Mmmmm gravy :O) Hey at least you cooked. I made McDonalds for diner. And that butter art rocks!

I've never really taken to the fake stuffing, Toccata, but if we're going to go trailer park, might as well go all the way.

These are important issues we are tackling here, Deb! The world needs to know about such things.

Really looking forward to the Matt Good show, Stephanie. There are reserved sit-down seats and everything. I shall feel very grown up. I'm glad to hear he's sounding as good as ever this tour.

Is IS gonna get worse, Karen! We're going with Kentucky Fried Rat tonight!

I use the little plastic tubs of chicken powder from Knorr, Bubs. It's those dirty little culinary secrets that really make a meal, I think.

I'm following your fine example and not cooking tonight, Mel. And everything will be deep fried. YUM!

I'm drinking my "tropical" juice right now. They really seem to be cutting down on the good labeling all across the board.

Have fun at the show tonight! Oh, and if going to KFC steer clear of the florescent green salad ;)

justacoolcat said...

It sounds a lot better if you call it "melange a sauce de roti"

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Never fear, Al, the nuclear power plant special salad at KFC shall never touch my lips. I don't need a third eye. Well maybe I do, but I don't really want one.
Did you have to mix the "tropical" with any rum to make aid its passage to the gullett?

By gum, you are right, Just A! It sounds practically edible!

I fed my family the blues.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Sugar booger I got two words for you: Brummel and Brown. It's ayogurt based buttery tasting spread that is much lower in fat than real butter. I'll take my thanks now before any of you have a heart attack.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

That's beautiful, Beth! And it works on so many levels.

I've never heard of Brummel and Brown, Dr M. Where do you find this magical creation? Health food store?
Gotta love "sugar booger" though! I feel so special.

Butter art...ohh, that's fantastic!

I think I am going to eat whatever I can find in the fridge that should get eaten before it goes bad. It looks like cottage cheese and carrot sticks with the dressing from the weekend are first up. Sounds like I eat healthy doesn't it - Don't be fooled. I had a chocolate bar and a coke for lunch ;)

Love the butter-art - I'm getting a very Pantone-era vibe from it. Rock on, butter-sculpting zombie!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

So it all balances out then, Serah. Throw a can of beans in there and you've got all your food groups covered.

If it was a Pantene-era vibe, I would be able to do hair-sculpting, Phlegmfatale. But alas, the butter just broke that way without artistic intervention.

Deb said...

o.k....what's the fluorescent green KFC salad? Would that be the coleslaw that I love? Between that and the plastic gravy, I wouldn't stand within 30 feet of myself without a special suit.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It is indeed the coleslaw-like material, Deb - scary scary stuff.
