food for thought

sometimes when i have leftover steamed green beans i take them straight from the fridge and make a sandwich with wheat bread and a layer of sour cream and then a real perfect-like layer of beans lined up like matchsticks and then i drizzle hot sauce on that. if i don't have sour cream i use cottage cheese or cream cheese and i love it

in the photo is steamed broccoli chopped fine mixed with Kashi (the breakfast pilaf) cooked way perfect and then there is some tamari and olive oil and hot sauce in there and it is weird as shit and i eat it i don't care. click on that pic and take a look at how weird it is. you eat this and man-o-man your colon will so thank you. i'm no way saying anything about the reese's stick mo fo's.

this is the worst thing ever but i don't care. sometimes i take the ice cream carton and a jar of peanuts, open it all up on the counter, and i get a spoon of ice cream and i put three or four dry roasted peanuts (whole effing salt not reduced or any shit like that) right on top of the ice cream and when you put that mother in your mouth it is so good you will praise Jesus. the other little known ice cream trick is to take a regular ritz cracker and put a good spoon of ice cream on that effer and put another cracker on top and eat your mini ice cream sandwich over the sink cause it is a major crumb-o-rama but it kicks serious ass

i make and cook and eat regular stuff too but let's face it nobody cares about manwich

You're sick. I'm sticking with my boiled okra/peanut butter sandwich and turnip fried pie.

So eating food that looks like diarrhea makes you diarrhea some good ol' diarrhea?

Makes sense.

Erin O'Brien said...

Kev, I'm going to leave that one alone and instead offer this.

Years ago, Dad and I were in the Cleveland Clinic surgical waiting area and I was eating a container of that stuff

He watched me for a while then said, "It's like eating with a squirrel."

Bill said...

The squirrel analogy is a good one because you, Erin, also move around a lot. That daily walk and stuff saves your ass. Eat what you want and keep moving.

Erin O'Brien said...

Actually Bill, I think I look like a plump little puppy.

What are you going to do?

Guess I'd better head to the gym.

joanne said...

try some durkee french fried onions on yer ice cream. yum.

and yes i was stoned, but i tried it again later and it was still good and i wasnt pregnant either.

Bill said...

You should probably leave the deep fried snacks off of your ice cream. It's not just the calories:

Are you experimenting with your writing style? Nothing's capitalized, and the whole thing reads like stream-of-consciousness. Nothing wrong with that, I'm just curious.

Erin O'Brien said...

Just mixin' it up a bit, I guess. It's not easy keeping readers of the Owner's Manual on their toes.

erf!

What the hell, it works for Cormac McCarthy.

Actually, alph. I'm reading "Airships" by Barry Hannah.

A brief excerpt:

"Undressed, it was seen how oversized his head was and how foolishly outsized his sex, hanging large and purple, a slain ogre."

Taken out of context, the brilliance of that line is somewhat dulled, but believe me, it is brilliance.

My fav, dip a pretzel into Nutella, put some ice cream on top...

And my latest leftover concoction: Mix leftover Beefaroni, leftover pork and beans, (get rid of that grody white hunk of "pork"), throw in some chopped chilies, chili powder, cumin and hot sauce. Serve with garlic toast.

Spit my coffee out twice laughing;

"It's like eating with a squirrel."

and "(get rid of that grody white hunk of 'pork')."

hahahahhahah.

Yum, leftovers for Thanksgiving.

Sorry EOB. Sometimes I lose myself.

Is there a nexus RJ? Are any unemployed or underemployed, shareholders? I think I get your point but using the huffpo for a reference is sketchy.

Happy Thanksgiving from an underemployed American.
