Random Appetites: Go Cups

New Orleans and Las Vegas are the two cities I know of where it’s perfectly legal for you to walk down the street with your beer or cocktail in hand tux paint herunterladen. Consequently, if you’re in a wandering mood, you can request your drink be put in a Go (or Geaux, in The Quarter) cup rather than the usual glass or whatnot and mosey on down the way kostenlose bilder herunterladen microsoft. While many places use coated paper cups or Styrofoam, some have capitalized on this and have printed plastic cups for their to-go orders. These also make useful “throws” during Carnival season (beads are not the only thing thrown from parade floats, t-shirts, cups, footballs and other items are quite popular) solitär kartenspiel herunterladen.

Of course my recent move was what had me thinking of to-go items and this post has been a result of such stream of consciousness thought.

Random Appetites: Fast Feasts

As much as I try to avoid it, sometimes I do succumb to the lure of the drive-through for those busy nights or just the don’t-wanna-cook blues tierarzt spiele kostenlos downloaden. With the move this coming weekend and trying to pack and clean and not put anything else into the apartment before the truck arrives, fast food is probably on the menu as I get later into the week phoenix mediathek downloaden kostenlos.

The problem, though, is that no one place has the perfect everything available on their menu. Since driving to 3 or 4 locations isn’t generally viable and sorta kills the time savings these quick fixes offer, we generally have to sacrifice one part of the meal for the sake of another, depending on what we’re craving the most adobe photoshop mac for free german. If I had my druthers, though, my “perfect” combined meal would be:

  • Burger King’s Chicken Tendergrill (formerly known as a chicken Whopper)
  • McDonald’s French Fries
  • Wendy’s Caesar Side Salad
  • Arby’s Jamocha Shake

And, of course, all the calories & cholesterol removed from the above, lol mp3en gratis.

What would your perfect quick cuisine consist of?

Random Appetites: For the Love of Peeps!

Ah, yes, those sugared puffs of piped marshmallow fluff. I’ve found you either love ’em or hate ’em, and I happen to love ’em eingebettete videos downloaden chrome. Unfortunately it’s more of a love-hate thing, since they make me verrry sleepy if I eat more than a couple at a time. Sugar overload makes me sleepy, go figure gzsz. But even if you don’t like to EAT the bunnies, chickies and other figures that feature prominently in many holiday candy aisles (but mostly Easter) there is much more to their fluffy little heads youtube videos downloaden wie.

Have you ever heard of peep jousting? It’s simple: place two peeps–each fitted with a toothpick lance under one, uh, wing–facing each other on a paper or other microwave-safe plate ipad ios herunterladen. Pop them into the microwave for just a bit (30 seconds should be enough) and watch who stabs who first.

Random Appetites: Fail-Safe Foods

This week’s strips got me thinking about that moment we all have: someone’s coming for supper and we don’t have much time to prepare game in 80 days around the world for free german. What to make?

I think everyone should have at least 1 fail-safe meal they can whip out at a moment’s notice when the need arises. Mine happens to be a heavenly rosemary rissotto that I usually pair with chicken breasts diet plan. Simple and virtually fool-proof. Granted, rissotto isn’t exactly quick–taking 30 minutes on average–and needs constant stirring but the end product is a nice, rich comfort food that is sure to please most guests winterbilder herunterladen.

Another common fail-safe dish is (or, at least, was) linguine with clam sauce. A little more daring, true, because not everyone eats seafood (and some may be allergic!) and there’s a real danger with over-cooking clams, but the requirements for a good clam sauce can be kept on hand for any emergency access 2010 for free.

What’s your fail-safe food?
