Mi Vida Loca

by wjw on February 13, 2013

So on Chinese New Year I ate boeuf bourguinon.

On Mardi Gras I had Indian food.

Just livin’ la vida loca, I guess.

But wait a minute . . . what cuisine would be totally inappropriate for Valentine’s Day?

Something unromantic of course. I vote for hot dogs and beer.

A dish best served cold?

Burgers! Especially in the UK where it has recently been discovered that many ‘beef’ burgers contain horsemeat – some possibly laced with toxic veterinary drugs! Relaxation of food standards has meant that criminal gangs can now sneak horsemeat (and possibly donkey meat!) into our food chain from countries like Romania. Or, at least, we had hoped to blame the Romanians, but there was a piece on BBC news this morning suggesting that some British slaughterhouses have been shipping horsemeat as well. Viva the Free Market!

“I hold your hand in mine, dear;
I press it to my lips…
I take a healthy bite from
Your dainty fingertips.”

How about the number 1 most hated food? Brussel Sprouts.

Crikey, grs1961. I was trying for unromantic but still palatable. You take it to a whole new level! 😉

Oatmeal. Cabbage. Velveeta. Perhaps you can think of a recipe that would use all three …

Guy food, of course. Greasy sloppy snacks, lots of beer, and things that make a lot of mess. You can’t get any more anti-Valentine’s Day than reverting to the Superbowl menu.
