fried pork chop & boxed macaroni, OF COURSE!

the receptionist who covers my lunch breaks (think big. like REAL BIG. sweat pants. crocs. redneck.) is full of unsolicited advice. i mean full. FULL TO THE BRIM. she told me before my break, "now, ima gonna use yer intranet to look up the recipe fer caramel corn." i was like "oh cool. be my guest."

...

when i got back, trying to be nice and make conversation, i said, "so, did you find your recipe for the caramel corn?" she said, "yup. here it is. brown sugar, black syrup and butter." i was like "whoa, that's how you make caramel? that's interesting." she said, "hunny, it's easy. alls ya need is the recipe." i MADE A MISTAKE and said, "oh really? gosh, i wouldn't know, i'm terrible in the kitchen."

AND SHE WENT OFF ON A TANGENT AND I'M NOT KIDDING YOU THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID:

"hunny, here's what i tell all people who say they're not good in the kitchen: jus try the box meals. here's what ya do: ya go to the grocery store and buy a boxed macaroni and cheese, (OHMYGHOD IS SHE SERIOUS? LIKE, I KNOW HOW TO MAKE MACARONI AND CHEESE OUT OF A BOX YOU FOOL) and you cook that up. then you take a fryin pan and you spray it with pam. then you get yerself a nice piece of pork chop and put salt n pepper on each side and brown each side in the fryin pan for 4 minutes. then you just cook yerself up some bagged vegetables and you got yerself a nice healthy meal!"

OH REALLY?! is THAT how you stay so trim? by eating fried pork chop and boxed macaroni? thanks.

  1. Here's what you do. Buy yourself some flanken steak. Make a marinade with scallions, honey, soy sauce, ginger, lemon grass, pineapple juice, garlic & pepper. Proportion to taste. marinate these suckers for at least 2 hours in a bag in the fridge. Get JJ on the grill [takes seconds a side]. Make a good salad. Lay a piece of the meat over the salad. c'est fini ou la! Bon apetit

  3. Just the kinda meal Kiki-Beanie used to love (almost as much as the fish-eyeballs she love in the Philippines)!
