Let me know if this helps make your day extra special.

    gotta love the smile

    Hmmm, it seems like a good alternative to pancakes.

  4. That picture is going to haunt my nightmares.

    Apparently carrot strips for the orange lines, and sliced olives (with pimento?) for the eyes . . .

    Are we feeling a bit Lileks lately?

    Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark… he’s got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be living… until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin’. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin’ and the hollerin’, they all come in and they… rip you to pieces.

  8. I don’t…because why would anyone-I mean whatthefuck is that fucking thing

    Frankfurter Bake,” brought to you by the Rice Information Service.

      Reminds me of the “hot-dog stew” soup I was once served by a friend: same thing as oyster stew, except substitute sliced hot dogs for oysters. Basically hot dog slices floating in warm, lightly seasoned milk. I think that nothing I’ve ever been served as a guest has tested my manners to the extent that this soup did. (Yes, I ate most of it; it was horrible.)

    Can’t sleep… fish clown will eat me…

    I assume that steak tartare would be served molded into the shape of a calf.
    Come to think of it, we have a brain mold lying around somewhere.

    “But … it’s … smiling at us!”

    This is just wrong. I was wiling to try the bannana and ham thing and it didn’t hurt (too much). Now this. I think you’re angry at us or something.

    I’m not looking forward to the desert recipes.

    Hmmm. Am I the only one who finds that recipe entirely unobjectionable? I wager that if waiter at a trendy restaurant served a slice of it on toast and called it the amuse bouche, no small number of you would enjoy it, if not single it out for praise in your yelp review.

    • Captain Bringdown says:

      “Entirely” unobjectionable would be going a little far for me, but I’d *much* sooner eat this than the “bananas benedict” recipe from yesterday. In fact, I wouldn’t really have any qualms about trying it if it were made with decent Italian tuna. Fresh herbs would also be preferable to the dried.

    • I wager that if waiter at a trendy restaurant served a slice of it on toast and called it the amuse bouche…

      …it wouldn’t be a fish-shaped lump with a fucking smiley face.

      Presentation counts.

    Now imagine you’re hung over, and somebody puts THAT in your face and then shakes the platter a little, so it wiggles.

    SPEW-O-RAMA. Perhaps coincidentally, also the first ingredient in the “mousse”.

      I don’t see the problem here. There is a long and perfectly respectable tradition of cooking with gelatin.

    • knecht ruprecht says:

      I tried to reply to this, but my comment got eaten. Anyway, gelatin is a perfectly honorable ingredient. Google “Sülze” or “Galareta”. Or “chaud-froid”, a dish that originated with Carême, the father of grande cuisine.
