The food of my people.

One dude from Seattle soaked rabbit in adobo. I want to marry him, and I will even gladly mop the floors (the one task I hate above all others) for him to cook for me.

I'm talking about Top Chef: Texas. Which we've added to our recaps, and I'm doing them. Yes, I needed more things on my plate, what? COME ON, THEY ARE IN MY HOMELAND. I did go off on them ignoring Houston, which has uh-may-zing food - the city is crazy diverse, so you can eat anything and it's going to be delicious. WHATEVER. Also, they stupidly filmed it in JULY. So they never went outside, apparently (not that I blame them, it was a record-breaking summer. 110+ every single day during their filming. Oy.)

Man, I love food. Which makes the fact that I've not had breakfast yet redonk. Oh, egg and spinach omlette, I will nom you soon.

Melody will have her X-Factor recap up soon, for those of you following along.

A cold front moved in last night and it's a properly chilly day, so I'm slow cooking a venison stew with a Cote du Rhone (pretend I put the hats on the appropriate vowels) reduction mixed in and did I mention I love food? Also, Happy Endings, Max rubbing his face on the sandwich, whispering, "Steaktanic" had me laughing pretty hard. And getting hungry. And wanting to kiss his face. While eating Steaktanic.

When I read the first sentence I thought, "But...WHY?". Then I realized the bunny was dead and you weren't talking about some guy with a fetish for having his animals smell like cooked meat while still on the hoof (as it were). Whew!

Hahaha. Um, yeah.

I've just Tivoed the first episode and am getting ready to watch. Do you know any of the chefs this time around? I just ate at 24 Diner (Austin Beer Week rocks) last week. Uchiko's in my neighborhood, but I've never been *needs to remedy that*

It's time to pull out the flannel jammies and plug in the electric blanket. Fall, I welcome you with open arms!

I haven't seen any of the Texas chefs yet - they'll be featured next week when they only have 9 more to get through, not 20.

Sweaters! I pulled out my wool scarf today, I AM EXCITE.

I'm watching it right now!! I will be reading your recap after it's over. :)

It's also making me sooooo hungry.

I KNOW, RIGHT?! I want some Hausenpfeffer after all of that rabbit talk. NOM.

I haven't seen the episode yet. I kinda forgot about it.

But! I am making venison vegetable soup. :)
Nov. 3rd, 2011 07:51 pm (UTC)
NOM NOM to your soup!

Heeee! It's simmering now but I was impatient and snuck some-yummy!

Reading your recap now, and frankly, I'm enjoying reading the recap more than I did watching Sunday's Next Iron Chef. *g*

(also, you have a typo. --Bad Ass 1 fixed her grits, knocked out freaking baby back ribs in under an hour (those you cool for at least 8 traditionally) <---there)

Oh, thanks for catching that! I wrote that up at 6am this morning, so. Ha.

I had to lol at the first guy that was eliminated. Kind of a dork. I thought Houston was one of the cities in the little 'string' of cities in the opening credits? It's possible i just didn't notice.

I saw Anthony Bourdain on the tv the other day, sampling food in Austin. Pretty crazy stuff going on there!
Nov. 3rd, 2011 11:04 pm (UTC)
Nope, they're not going to Houston - it caused a big stink.

Austin is BAD ASS. It's like a weirder, warmer San Francisco.

We have some very dear friends down there in the music scene and i would love to go and visit some...winter, maybe, when you don't have to hide from the sun, heh. Anthony made me want to go wandering around, eating nowhere but from sidewalk food trucks. It all looked so good!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
