I've successfully recreated one of my favorite all time dishes. On my first try, if I do say so myself.

Pepe's Chili con Queso. It is easy as anything.


One can La Preferida Mild Enchilada Sauce.

One can regular, condensed, Campbell's Tomato Soup (low sodium) (Important!)

One package V&V Supremo Chihuahua cheese. Substitute with any melty, stringy cheese. I bet Monterrey Jack would be nice. Cut into strips, french-fry sized.

A package of rustic-style tortilla chips. The thicker the better for these purposes.

Combine the soup (undiluted) and sauce in saucepan with a 1/4 cup water. To taste, really. Bring to simmer. Place a good sized lump of cheese in the bottom of a bowl. Pour the mixture onto the cheese, melting it. Dip the chips into the sauce and try to get a nice glob of cheese.

(PS- Did you know that Campbell's sells seeds?)

Call me Robert Soufflet! Just made a my first souffle, a cheese souffle. Next time, less cheese and more salt. Or perhaps just a touch of sugar. But it cooked, if I do say myself, perfectly. I should have photographed it. You don't golden brown any goldener or browner.

It only took like three hours. And I whipped the egg whites by hand. Feel the burn!

(Will be updating the Flickr in the next few days with what I think will be some interesting stuff.)

Poor Apple, Inc.


I'll buy an iPod when they put a fucking radio in it. What's wrong with them?

I have very little to say.

I've really got to stop drinking coffee after 3pm. Background: I've been experimenting this week. Skip the afternoon coffee, get to sleep earlier, sleep better, wake earlier. Drink the afternoon coffee, not so much. So, I should have known what I was doing with that venti House Blend at 5 this afternoon. I CANNOT SLEEP!

I made some hollandaise today. Smooth! Actually, it broke- I think I let it get too hot. But I came very close, and it tasted good.

Could Artie Lang be fatter, drunker or stupider?

Nasty looking

Happy New Year!

The 2008 Chevy Malibu looks nasty. The last generation was boxy and weird, but it had character. (Not entirely unlike some of the women I've dated.) The rear trunk area looks like it's from a completely different car- perhaps a 1995 Plymouth Breeze.
