A Little Sunday Bitch Or Two

I am a cook and I like to keep my food traditional….no fusion or whatever they call that abortion these days.

I like fried chicken and the best comes from Popeye’s…..they recently added a chicken sandwich to their menu and it has become very popular…..so popular that one guy wants to sue because they ran out of chicken…

A Tennessee man is suing Popeyes Chicken because, he says, they ran out of chicken sandwiches. Craig Barr filed the $5,000 suit Wednesday after what he called repeated attempts to buy the sandwich at different locations, NBC News reports. “I can’t get happy; I have this sandwich on my mind,” he tells the Times Free Press. “I can’t think straight. It just consumes you.” The Chattanooga man says he was also humiliated by friends and suffered $1,500 in tire and rim damage while driving around for sandwiches. Perhaps worse, Barr says he was conned by someone who posted a Craigslist ad offering access to chicken sandwiches hidden at a Popeyes location.

Barr says he met the guy behind a Popeyes, gave him $25, and watched him go inside—but that was it. Barr says he soon followed and was told the man had left via the front door. “I got scammed,” says Barr. The sandwich shortage stems from a fast-food Twitter war between Chick-fil-A and Popeyes over which has the best chicken sandwich. Chick-fil-A seemed to ridicule Popeyes’ new offering by calling its own sandwich “the original,” which Popeyes re-tweeted with, “…y’all good?” Other chains jumped into the fray with claims about their sandwiches. Shortages and lineups ensued, but Barr says Popeyes purposely hyped its product and fell short on quantity to attract attention. Representing himself in the case, he’s due in court Oct. 28.

Let me guess this moron is looking for the 15 minutes of fame and a gig on You Tube….the Lawsuit Lotto.

My biggest bitch is that of “Hummus”…..this is made from chickpeas…the name actually means chickpeas….so if a hummus is made from anything other than chickpeas it is just a fucking DIP. (apologies for the vulgarity) (Sorry for the redundancy for I have bitched about this before)

My second bitch of the day……That brings me to new fad……the “no meat” burger and stuff….and KFC has come up with a plant based nuggets…..

Non-meat “meat” products are almost everywhere, and the next place they’re heading is KFC. The chain is testing a vegan version of its fried chicken in an Atlanta restaurant starting Tuesday, CNBC reports. The plant-based product comes from Beyond Meat, making KFC the first national US fast food restaurant to test the company’s chicken item. Del Taco is selling a “Beyond Taco” and Carl’s Jr. sells a Beyond Burger featuring Beyond Meat, while chains including Burger King, White Castle, and Little Caesars offer plant-based menu items from rival Impossible Foods. KFC will be testing nuggets and wings.

The Atlanta restaurant will hand out Beyond Chicken samples to customers who order other things, Bloomberg reports. “Customer feedback from the Atlanta test will be considered as KFC evaluates a broader test or potential national rollout,” KFC says in a statement. Bloomberg notes that Beyond Meat’s restaurant partnerships have up til now been burger, sausage, or ground beef substitutes. But other companies including Tyson Foods and Perdue Farms are also working on chicken substitutes.

In case no one knows it…….what they are describing is a take-off of a classic falafel.

To continue my FYI concept on weekends……I will give you my falafel recipe……

1(15-oz.) can chickpeas, drained
 
4cloves garlic, roughly chopped
 
1 shallot, roughly chopped (Substitue red onion)
 
2 tbsp.freshly chopped parsley
 
1 tsp.ground cumin
 
1 tsp.ground coriander
 
3 tbsp.Chickpea flour (all-purpose flour may be substituted)

Freshly ground black pepper

EVOO as needed

Peanut oil, for frying

Place all ingredients into a blended and blend until it is a thick paste

Turn paste out and form small balls

Fry balls in oil until golden brown

Serve falafel with favorite dip…mine is tzatziki….yogurt, sour cream, grated onion and cucumber, lemon juice, parsley, small mount of EVOO….mix well serve with pitas or flour tortillas.

I also make a tahini sauce as well…..

1/2 cup of tahini, 1 clove garlic crushed, lemon juice, drizzle of EVOO…mix well…..serve.

Enjoy!

  1. falafel …So that’s what those strange balls are at the Whole Food salad bar! Sounded too much like ‘awful’ to try, now I will (only they serve tzatziki at the salad bar, have to purchase separately.). Thanks!
