Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap
Episode 221 - Tortie, don't step there!

So about 15 mins in, Rose the Tortoise Shell Cat decided to walk across the laptop, stopping the recording. Undaunted, and slightly inebriated, I have learned how to join tracks in Audacity (which I've not had to do to date, mind you) and provide you with this fine podcast. and fine it is, when we eat foods we found in New Orleans, chips sent to us by listeners, and even fine chocolates! 

Oh, and there is beer and coffee syrup and rum, too. All that and more when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 220 - I am fair - even if it kills me

Once upon a time, we picked up a bottle of Dandelion Wine in WVa. This weekend, we actually try drinking it. I also found Candied Bacon Jerky on Amazon, and you KNOW I had to order that. We also have another Southern Pines Brewery Beer, a Malbec from Texas, and another Screamin' Sicilian frozen pizza. 

There is also ice cream, cookies, and dried SPAM chunks this week, when We Eat It, So You Don't have To!

Episode 219 - Yellow Cake Uranium Chocolate

This week we explore a tactical error on Ursula's part - she let me (Kevin) choose the foods. She usually does that, and has words about the choices. But in the mix there is a new to us variety of SPAM, chips from Japan, and some recent finds at CostCo.

Oh yes, we have access to a CostCo now. Be afraid, be almost as afraid as we are.

All that, plus beer, wine, and yet another unnatural cookie flavor, when We Eat It, So You Don't have To!

Episode 218 - White Choclate Mothman

You will note that the name we say we SHOULD call the episode is not what we actually call it. I blame the beer. And it is GOOD beer - I ran into the actual owner of the brewery the day after we recorded it at the Co-Op, and gushed about how awesome it was.

Otherwise, this week is a mixed bag. We have some outstanding foods, and some things that probably should be shot out of a cannon into the sun. But that is how it goes when We Eat it, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 217 - The Innsmouth Soup

So were were walking down the canned food aisle of the local co-op and we saw this soup. Not just any soup, but a soup with a fish-person logo, that for all the world looked like a Lovecraft Deep One. Which means we had to buy it.

We also came across local beer, local apple wine, mushroom bisque and a whole host of things for your listening pleasure, even if it isn't for our digestive well being.

We really need to thing about why We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 216 - Do we have to put it in a sword now?

So a couple of lessons were learned this week. The first, and most important, is to never let Ursula choose how many foods we will sample when she is hungry. The second is that surprise gifts are always interesting. And the third is that homemade meadjitos are DANGEROUS.

There are also instant potatoes, cheese biscuits, beer, chocolates, and scary duck things from another continent.

All that and more when We Eat It, So You Don't have To!

So you may notice episodes 1 and 2 back in your feed. Never fear, this is expected! They had expired, and many people were asking for them. So I updated them. Which has the unfortunate side effect of bumping them to the top of the feed. AGAIN.

So here is your chance to enjoy the early-early days of KUEC, when we didn't know what we were doing - or what we were getting ourselves into.

Episode 215 - Put Something Clever Here

As I type this, I am sharing one of our foods this week with Sergi the cat, because dried, crunchy fish is our jam. We also have frozen pizza, mead from Africa, USA made stroopwaffles, beers, cider, and the first of the new Lay's potato chip flavors.

But that's not all! We keep the oven and microwave busy this week, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

Episode 214 - Pantone Cookie Swatches

I no longer have clever ways to open these posts. I honestly fear that I am repeating myself. In any case, we ARE trying really hard not to repeat foods, so this week we have any number of interesting things - for some value of "interesting." Bacon jam! More Quinoa! So many spaghetti sauces! And to top it off, Ursula is left alone with cookies.

I didn't mean to do that, but it happened, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To.

Episode 213 - Tastes like New Age Bookstore

Kevin is back from WA, and he brought goodies! One of his coworkers took him to an Indian Market, and helped find foods that Americans wouldn''t normally eat. So we've got something new to try. We also have a pile of chips from Home Goods, beer, wine, and frozen foods best left in the store.

Oh, and some good stuff too. Find out what it is, when We Eat it, So You Don't Have To!
