My Food Network Star

Where do I begin....My pick to win The Next Food Network Star on the Food Network Channel was kicked off last night. My boy JAG, the boriqua was let go after he withdrew himself from the final two spot in the competition AFTER Amy was already let go. There were rumors circulating throughout the Internet that JAG did not serve in Afghanistan and that he didn't graduate Culinary School as he had stated. He never really wanted to talk about his past and that is probably why. Food Network tried to give him a chance at a press conference to reveal his hidings but he didn't. F.N. eventually called JAG in for a meeting where JAG revealed the truth. I was disappointed as I wanted him to win, but when he lied about being in the service when so many of our Soliders are dying, that is just wrong. So what happened? Amy came back and is competing against Rory aka Gumby...she has huge gums...My pick has switched from the caribeaner to the Gourmet Next Door Amy....Good luck girl

Tater Tot Fridays?

I stayed at home today still trying to fight this cold I have had...its horrible and I've taken so many pills to combat it....

Well for those fans of Beans blog back in the day I have a treat for you. Today Bean sent me a picture of his beloved Tater Tot playing in his yard and here it is....

Now compare him to my wife and I's bulldog Burbank as he tries to protect his lemon

Aren't they so similar??

Happy weekend to you all!

Do you ever notice how when you use someone else iron to iron your clothes, their iron is a hell of a lot hotter and better than yours. So what do you do? You go out and buy that iron only to be bummed when it still doesn't get as hot as theirs.

Here is a picture of my Food Network Crush Giada

My 90th Post

On this nice humid day in Southern California, my 90th post has came upon us....It could have been more but I am just lazy...

This post is dedicated to the Birdman who is constantly making fun of my Carribeanerness.

I am a huge fan of the food network and yes I love to cook. In fact my next house is going to have a Viking Stove with a grill...

Well one of my favorite shows on the Food Network is called unwrapped. Last nights episode was dedicated to spicy things and one of those on the list was Beans. Refried Beans in fact. My wife always gets on my case because I love me the Rosarita Refried Beans.

In the episode it showed how the makers of the beans purchase the pinto beans, rinse them out to get any rocks out of the batch and then slowly cook them. Then then put them into this huge masher and actually have a level of mashing that they do! Then then run the mashed beans from a machine into another which puts the beans into a can and seals them up. The canned beans are then put into a heater type compression machine that gives the beans a 7 year shelf life! That's freakin incredible. 7 years!

Watch unwrapped as well as The Next Food Network Star. My pick JAG is still in the final 3 woohoo!

Were any of you fans of Saved by the Bell? Do you remember that when it first aired, it only had Zach, Screech, and Lisa and it was set in Indiana....yeah like so many people want to see a bunch of teens in Indiana...Anywho somehow they switched schools and Zach Lisa, and Screech all ended up in Pacific Palisades at Bayside High School...
