Go forth. And Gobble.

That's an order from Pilgrim John.

Shepherd's Pie. In Technicolor.

Nothing holds color like frozen mixed vegetables. And nothing brings out their Technicolor dream of bold orange, yellow and green like a generous helping of ketchup.

And - as I learned the hard way - nothing brings Ben and Margie's gag reflexes forward like the trashy American-style "traditional" shepherd's pie.

I believe the entire Roy G Biv spectrum is represented in this casserole. Don't you agree?

Next time, I'll opt for herding the family to McDonald's.

WTF?!? Friday: Loafing


What's sandwiched between these albino slices of, um, bread? And what is serving as the fluffy insulation? The purity of this luncheon loaf is questionable - without question. I wouldn't pull this out at the bridge party until the ladies had polished off a pitcher of Long Island iced tea.

Tipsy Tuesday: Ouch!

This swell swill is the bee's knees!

"Come on, Danny. Grab the brandy and get jiggy with that outta-sight shaker!"

Combine in a cocktail shaker:
1 cup shaved ice
1 jigger brandy
1 jigger white creme de menthe

Shake. Strain. Pour, honey! Drink until there's some swizzle in your stick.

WTF?!? Friday: Sweeney Todd-Style

Wow. WTF?! is nestled inside this leafy lettuce cup?! It's like Mrs. Lovett's mystery meat --- salad. Thanks for this one, Benjamin Barker. It's definitely the demon salad of WTF Friday.
