It was surprising to me to read the process of making cottage cheese. I was under the impression that cottage cheese was made from leaving milk out in the scorching heat for days on end. Another feather in the cap of the Internet for teaching me something new today!
Ettore Boiardi was a remarkable chef. His company made and prepared millions of rations for American and Allied troops during World War II, and for his efforts he was awarded a gold star order of excellence from the United States War Department. It’s too bad then that he had to change the spelling of his name so us dumb Americans could pronounce it.
Paula Dean is a southern cook who uses a lot of butter and once got a ham thrown at her face. The only reason I’m posting this is to share a video I saw the other day that she was in. The video has had over 100,000 views the last 2 days and I am responsible for at least 7 of those.
Horatio Magellan Crunch is the cartoon mascot more commonly known as Cap’n Crunch for the cereal of the same name. And because I think we can all agree that Cap’n Crunch is the Shakespeare of cereals that cut up the roof of your mouth, it is only appropriate that he follows W.S.’s post from earlier today.
I heard on the radio this morning that today was Julia Child’s 100 birthday. So I got into work and made this photo. I thought it would be great to share on her 100th birthday, which is the day before Thanksgiving. Everyone will be getting in the cooking mode. After I made it, I found out that it is in fact NOT her birthday, but she would have been 100 years old and it’s kind of fun to look at. Enjoy!
The Sting is a fantastic movie. I haven’t seen it lately. I thought of this steesh when I was shopping for pasta sauce and noticed how the artist who draws Newman is not afraid to add a steesh. Stay tuned for more.
Mr. Potato Head is 60 years old. Wikipedia actually had some interesting facts about it –
“It was the first toy advertised on television and has remained in production since its debut. The toy was originally produced as separate plastic parts with pushpins that could be stuck into a real potato or other vegetable. However, due to complaints regarding rotting vegetables and new government safety regulations, Hasbro began including a plastic potato body within the toy set.”
The original concept was great for teaching kids about life and death and how all good things eventually come to an end.
Today is National Chocolate Chip Day, so naturally Cookie Monster gets the cookie duster treatment. It is a little difficult adding a mustache to a puppet that doesn’t even have lips, but I’ve done the best I can. I recommend you get off my back.
Michael Vale is most famous for playing Fred in Dunkin Donuts commercials where he would say, “Time to make the donuts.” Now people say that all the time. Sometimes to refer to having to use the bathroom! What a world we live in.
Michael died due to complications of diabetes on Christmas Eve, 2005. I hope Dunkin Donuts is happy.
I feel like it would be an agonizing process to try to order take-out with Dwight Howard. He would talk all about how he wanted Chinese food and once you find the menu for the place with the good egg rolls he’d decide what he really wants is pizza. So you’d figure out where to order the pizza and discuss what you wanted on it (Dwight, I don’t want any fucking onions on my pizza). Then this guy starts talking fried rice again. I just imagine it getting to about 9pm and we are both eating cereal without milk because the milk in the fridge is expired.
