While out shopping this afternoon, I came across this:
Okay all you know-it-all gourmets, let’s hear your best ostrich egg recipe. According to the shop owner, although it may seem daunting, I shouldn’t feel obliged to use the entire egg in one meal. Apparently, ostrich eggs keep surprisingly well. I honestly considered picking it up and surprising the guys tomorrow but, ultimately, decided against it figuring I would have my hands full with the Philly Cheesesteaks. Also, the $95 price tag seemed a little much. I say “seemed” because I really have no idea what ostrich eggs go for these days. Also, even if I did shell out for one and managed to find a terrific recipe, I’m not at all sure how to open one up. If Chopped has taught be anything, it’s that ostrich shells are incredibly thick. Suggestions on cracking this puzzle would be greatly appreciated as well.
Yes, I’m all set for Philly Cheesesteak Sunday. Today, I picked up the shaved rib eye, onions, mushrooms, peppers, mayo, ketchup, provolone, American cheese (aka processed cheese) and, believe it or not, Cheese Whiz (Akemi refused to believe it was actual cheese). Tomorrow morning, I’ll wake up early(ish) and pick up some fresh rolls at which point I’ll be good to go. I think I’ll start on the onion, peppers, and mushrooms, pop them in the oven, then add them to order as I prepare the meat for the individual sandwiches.
As an added bonus, Rob texted to inform me he’s been experimenting with donuts. Tomorrow afternoon, we’ll see the results of his mad genius.
I will, of course, snap pics of the finished product for you all to criticize.
Well, this would certainly put a damper on my planned trip to Tokyo later this year: Experts Predict Japan’s Mount Fuji Will Erupt Soon. Uh, exactly how soon is “soon”? Next year soon? In the next five years soon? November soon? Hmmm. Better pack a snack and extra underwear just in case.
This blog’s resident movie critic, Cookie Monster (check out all his past reviews here: Film reviews by resident film criti…) asked me to remind everyone that next week’s Supermovie of the Week Club selection is Hellboy. Discussion begins Monday. Watch it!
Continuing our trip down SGA memory lane…
For the longest while, Joe Flanigan wanted us to cast a sexy female regular to play off Sheppard, a character who, in tandem with John, would offer the show a Moonlighting dynamic. While I wasn’t against the idea, I felt that the addition of another regular would take away from the existing dynamic. Instead, I came up with an alternative scenario, one that would introduce a character with recurring potential. And so, the idea for Larrin, and the Travelers, Larrin, was born. As was the case whenever we cast a guest star, everyone was all over every audition – to the point that I seriously wondered whether we would ever find our Larrin in time. Well, we did – eventually – casting the lovely Jill Wagner. The plan had always been to bringer back but scheduling conflicts quashed that possibility and, sadly, while referred to onscreen, Larrin was never seen again. [Oops. Right. Never seen again. After the mid-season two-parter].
