Breakfast of Champions

God Bless Dave King and this craziness he ate for breakfast:

That's Diet Mountain Dew, 2 sausage biscuits and taquitos with hot sauce for those whose eyes just fell out of their sockets.
I can't say anything, as the following feast of Fried Shoestring Potatoes in a can, chocolate covered peanuts, JUMBO Iced Honey Bun, and Dill Pickle chips was the result of a recent late-night snaxtravaganza in which I challenged myself to choose one item from each aisle of the KenJo. Veggies (pickles and potatoes), Nuts, Honey, all very good for you. And I will now share an Eat Me secret: (microwave your Iced Honey Bun for 30 seconds and it becomes a delicacy straight from the pages of Culinary Couture. Is that a magazine? Because I think I made it up and I'm pretty proud.)

The Secret Four Loko Recipe

I can't wait for the first Four Loko prohibition cave bar to open somewhere deep in the Smoky Mountains, but until then, we'll be making our own using this trusty recipe shared by Cody Clark:

NOOOOOO!!!!!! Not my Four Loko!!!

I guess by now you've heard the stink about the looming FDA ban of Eat Me's favorite beverage, the delicious and nutritious Four Loko. We're stocking up for the long cold winter ahead, but when that runs out we'll be drinking C-Zurrrres!

Watch this awesome clip from The Colbert Report as you lick your wounds, I mean your Four Loko can.

Gettin Slinky with Twinkies

In our Reader-Submitted Post of the Day, Morgan Fleming shares this little diet tip:

Hearts and Rainbows

I'm a little late on this one, but Lara Duren and David King (of the turtle bacon fame from posts-past) hosted a pre-Halloween pumpkin carving party complete with this table of goodies, including DORITOS and REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS, garnering a big thumbs up for the home team. I wish I could transport myself there now and bury my face in a bowl of Chex Mix.

Shit Bowl

We're broke again, and not even in the fun/experimental way. I wanna make a pie, but there's no sugar. I have white bread, but nothing to put on it except mustard. So I recently resorted to this microwaveable packet of Aloo Palak, hearty potatoes and spinach simmered in onions, tomatoes and spices. My ass! It tastes like shit. Seriously, like dirt-caked shit. I love Indian food, but this? Boo.

The Joy of Monochromatic Meals

Like this little feast from my very favorite restaurant, Chandler's on Magnolia Avenue:
Chicken n' dumplins (what!) sweet potatoes (what what!) and macaroni and cheese (what what what!)

(side note: I've been amused by sweet potatoes ever since I dated a Dane who seriously thought putting marshmallows on vegetables was the most fucked up thing in the world. I would make mashed potatoes and he'd be like, "Don't you wanna sprinkle some gummy bears on there or something? We ARE in the South." Ahh, culture. Getchy some.)

Baby bear made me a pancake dog.

I was awakened last Saturday morning to the smell of pancakes and a treat on my plate -- a pancake dog handmade by a baby bear, just-for-me. Since I think it will be quite some time before I can get a real dog, baby bear appeased me with this lil' guy. I didn't even know you could make pancakes into shapes. It was sooo good.

Good morning to you too, Pancake Dog!

May I slather you in butter and maple syrup?

You are the most delicious Pancake Dog ever!

I can only hope your head tastes as good as your ass did.

It did.
