Recently he blogged about an exchange with a creepy neighbor. I commented with my thoughts that maybe the neighbor was hitting on him.
Kevin wrote back and said, "I think I might just have puked a little in my mouth."Well that's all I can say about the following.
A week or so ago I wrote about what seems to be a really gross trend in "new" fusion cooking---peanut butter hot dogs, KFC [yuck] "Famous" Bowls, etc.
I guess when it rains, it pours. In other words, once you discover gross, it just comes flying out of the woodwork to slap you repeatedly upside the head.
A New Zealand winery produces a wine that gets rave reviews from the critics. One enthusiastic taster (I'm not kidding!) describes its essence as "a whiff of cat's pee on a gooseberry bush".
I had a friend who had 4 unneutered cats who pissed all over her apartment. I KNOW what unfiltered cat's pee smells like. My eyes water at the memory, and not with fond nostalgia.
You'd have to cut my head off and pour this brew down my spurting stump to get me to ingest anything with a whiff of cat's pee. Yuck!
Some lady who, in my opinion, either smokes a lot of dope or has arteries as clogged as the Cleveland Tunnel came up with 50 recipes for a Twinkies Cookbook.
It includes Lasagna and Burritos.
How in the HELL do you make Lasagna out of Twinkies? I can't find ONE ingredient in a recipe that can be substituted with yellow sponge cake and vanilla cream filling.
The same with burritos. Do you add chocolate sprinkles on top of the green chili sauce?
Now we come to the most heinous of atrocities. Assault on ice cream.
Years ago, when I was in a Mexican restaurant, I was offered Cinnamon ice cream. I've always been a bland French Vanilla girl.
I thought it was weird, was completely dubious, but found it to be delicious.
Since then I've been willing to branch out to the more exotic (Try Ben and Jerry's Neapolitan Dynamite!), with no disasters.
My little mind was opened.
Until I stumbled across The Wackiest World of Japanese Ice Cream. Now I have to quote my friend Kevin Charnas again.
"I think I might have just puked a little in my mouth."
I LIKE Soy Sauce. On eggrolls, on dumplings, on rice and meats. I love it's versatile smoky saltiness.
The thought of eating it frozen with cream and sugar makes my short hairs stand on end.
Raw Horseflesh Ice Cream.
To quote the critics, "You can get it straight from the horse's mouth, this would have to vie for the vilest ice cream ever created. The chunks of meat inside it offer ample proof of why horseflesh is usually used in dog food."
How about "Shark Fin Noodle"? Or "Oyster"? Or even "Salad"?
I give up.
I'm think I'm going back to plain old Vanilla.
