A Fish Worth Fighting For

It’s not often that one can blend stupidity from three distinct areas of regular silliness. It turns out that politics, food and religion have, indeed joined forces. Gefilte fish is one of those nasty traditional Jewish foods that very few actually like. Take some nasty fish, debone it, and then grind it up with some onions, eggs and matzoh. Squish it into loaves and poach it with carrots and more onions. Take these poached loaves and dump them in a jar full of translucent slime that is the consistency of runny snot. Serve at family meals. Ugh.

Apparently, it’s now a matter of highest concern for our Department of State. Seems as though the Hildabeest is taking on a trade dispute with Israel as a highest level mission.


Food: What Were They Thinking?

Deviled Dogs

  • 5 corn dogs
  • 10 tater tots
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tbs Mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Paprika
  1. Bake the corndogs amd tater tots according to package directions.
  2. When corndogs are cool enough to handle, remove the sticks, and split in half lengthwise.
  3. Remove the hot dog part, leaving the cornbread shell intact.
  4. Put the dogs, tots, cheese, mayo, salt and pepper into a food processor and process until smooth.
  5. Fill each corn shell with an equal amount of the potato mixture. If you have a pastry bag, use it!
  6. Sprinkle paprika over the top.
  7. Return to the oven, and bake until top is browned, about 5 minutes.

Best New Product at SHOT Show

SHOT Show is the international trade show for all things gun, hunting, tactical, etc. It’s not really open to the public, but consistently draws 50,000ish folks every year. Lots of companies vie for the official and unofficial honors of best in show. This would be my vote.


Unused Shop Tools?

My friend Art bought a small Jet lathe that served as a glorified coffee cup holder for several years. What seemed like a good idea at the time never quite made it to actual use in his shop. At some point, I asked for the tool and took it home with me.  I use it regularly for various projects. Good thing that Art never saw this video on Youtube. I guess one can always come up with alternate uses for quality tools!


How Fresh is Fresh?

I’ll admit that I enjoy enjoy sushi. And I will also enthusiastically acknowledge that the freshness of the seafood is a HUGE factor in having a wonderful experience. That said, this is going a bit too far…


Arby’s: Bad Omen?

I’m thinking that Arby’s was a bad move for lunch today. My youngest spawn pointed to my curly fries and asked “what happened to that one?”… It was kinda distorted and I realized that it looked like an Ebola virus. I also realized that there was absolutely no way I could explain Ebola to blossoming teen girl whose only item of fixation was the Jonas Brothers. So I ate it.


Better Than Boobies

That, my friends, is fried spam on a stick. And no, it’s not really better than boobies. For more gut wrenching gastronomy, go here.
