I think Gene Wilder is a great actor.  He portrayed damn near every emotion in that role.  Unlike Johnny Depp, who has just one speed..Johnny Depp.

You should have hid your lunch and then swooped in after everyone else went through the line and claimed you brought the potato chips...

That does sound better.

 

Our pot lucks have their fair share of super market preservatives, but there's usually some really good stuff; especially when I remember to bring white chilli.

So in the cafeteria today, there was a condiment bottle labeled "Carolina BBQ Sauce".  Is that supposed to be good or something?

As opposed to "Kansas CVity BBQ Sauce" or "Georgia BBQ Sauce" or "Texas BBQ Sauce". Just different bases to make the sauce (vinegar vs. mustard vs. ketchup).

I tend to like Carolina BBQ sauces more than others--vinegar and/or mustard based.  A lot of the others tend to be too sweet for my taste.

I can tolerate the mustard-based sauces for sandwiches, but the vinegar-based Carolina sauces flat out ruin barbecue.

A thick, gooey barbecue sauce just covers for bad meat.  With a proper Marianas vinegar, lemon, and hot-pepper based marinade, sauce is not needed.

 

Who was it that won the Marianas hot pepper that I mailed out several years ago?  Supe?? Did you ever try the recipe out?

Carolina has two different kinds,but the vinegar and red pepper on is good on pulled pork sandwiches. Good BBQ doesn't need sauce though, it is all about the rub.

I just had an "Ultimate Salad" at Newks.  Not ultimate.  Not even penultimate.  My coworker's "Black and Bleu" looked a lot more appetizing, since it had a hunk of steak about the size of my fist in it.

we have been making these "jar salads" where you make your salad and put it in a large mason type jar every sunday and then grab it to take to lunch. It makes it easy to put in the 1000 calorie salad dressing and stir it up... I should have taken a pic before I ate it but its a pretty cool trick and you can layer it so that even by Friday the lettuce isn't "all fucked up!"
