Bob’s Burgers: Every Breath You Tikka Masala Burger

We’ve been watching a lot of Bob’s Burgers lately, and one of the things I love are the names of the Burgers of the Day. Punny, funny, and they hint at flavor combinations that I’d love to try. In one episode, Bob threw out the name of a burger (Yes, the Every Breath You Tikka

Friday Food – week ending 4/24

I thought I’d try something new and sort of collect the dishes that I make during the week and share them here with links and my thoughts. First, is a dish that I tried for the first time. Shanghai Noodles. This was delicious! I admit, I didn’t make it with pork (I had ground turkey

Crossroads and artichoke sauce.

One week ago exactly, I was talking to the triage nurse and being admitted to the ER. I have no idea what my hemoglobin level is at today, but I feel comfortable saying it must be pretty good. I have no idea what the future brings, except that it looks unlikely like I’ll have to

The Ultimate Sandwich

So, I got a Flip UltraHD for my birthday. I got it, on the promise that I’d take more videos of my children. But really, I had fond memories of my sister and I, making silly home movies with our camcorder. Somewhere there is a tape with our bizarre version of Wizard of Oz, lip-synching

Oven Fried Chicken
