You Deserve It

Before I share today’s very ‘special’ recipe I have a few little things (ramblings) to share!

– Hey have you entered my giveaway where 2 gift baskets worth 75$ will be won. Full of neat kitchen toys and a gift certificate. And it’s open to everyone world wide. So go enter now…well after you have read this post. You have till October 15th 2011, 23h59 EST to enter.

– 43 hours left till I host my 12 hour long Food Film Marathon. Yikes, Getting excited and nervous! OMG OMG OMG!

– I was approached by to submit recipes for a cookbook specially aimed for youth hostel kitchens. Recipes will be up for public vote on their Facebook page and the winning recipes will be published, winner’s blog links included. Check out all the details on how to enter. It’s a great idea as I have my fair share of stories from meals I have prepered while traveling in your hostels. Yep those will be coming up here real soon!

– Got my new point & shoot camera which is considered low end for what is on the market, half the price of my 2 year old camera but twice the mega pixels and more functions, go figure! Can’t wait to see how good it is in the kitchen!

– Finally…yes yes I am considering joining the band wagon and make my own cookbook. Nothing official but starting to look into it. This is an old idea, a cookbook of ethnic recipes (no big surprise), and at that time I had asked for recipe contributions from members of the now defunct Cheap Ethnic Eatz dinner group. So I was browsing the contributed recipes and I fell on a joke recipe which is quite funny. I had to share it:

Ξ You Deserve It! Ξ

1 cup corn syrup
1/2 tsp margarine
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 small onion

Set onion aside. Combine remaining ingredients in medium saucepan and cook on high for 35 minutes prior to spouse coming home. Make sure to use old pan. Burn concoction to an unrecognizable blob. If stench isn’t bad enough, add vinegar.

As you see spouse’s vehicle approach, cut onion to produce tears. Sob, “I’ve burned dinner and there’s nothing left to cook.”

Make such a fuss about the day’s misgivings that spouse whisks you off to the restaurant of your choice. Comb hair, apply make-up, adorn beautiful outfit and enjoy!

Did you make one of my recipes? I would love to see it. Take a photo and tag me on Instagram @cultureatz.
