Stinky Goodness

I am fed up with how so many good foods reek. I hate how I can come home and my wife will immidiatly get pissed at me because of the stench that fills the air. Ok, I have already gone into the issues of garlic and the dangerous farts they produce, but in general stinky […]

Be a Cheese Snob, or at least sound like one

  As they say (or at least as seen on a t-shirt): “Cheese, milk made awesome.” Cheese, Glorious Cheese. I have already ranted about how cheese, even the crappy kind that is vacuum sealed and whose expatriation dates are several decades away, is simply all powerful. But quality cheese can really be a game changer. […]

Satisfying Simplicity

I love a well cooked, homemade meal that took hours to prepare and uses overpriced ingrediatents. When I leave a grocery store, my receipt usually breaks $100, easily. Mrs Fed Up’s shopping runs are usually half that…she if fine with beans and broccoli. Not me. I savor quality foods, even if it means I won’t […]

One Hell Of An Expensive Shopping Cart

Go to Sam’s or Costco or BJ’ or any of the warehouse super-centers. Put 5 items in your cart and prepare to hand over a month’s paycheck. Yes you are getting a good amount of food. That “feed-Africa” sized bag of broccoli is going to last you a few years. The problem is  just when you […]

Be a Showoff, Get an Expensive King Cake for Mardi Gras

It is Mardi Gras, time for King Cake. The legendary New Orleans treat that magically shows up each time this year. Of course every grocery store in the carnival celebrating region produces their own line of generic King Cakes; many tasting as bland as the boring white box they come in. But recently a new […]

Its Crack For Breakfast

Honey Bunches of Oats…this stuff is amazingly addictive. No normal human has the ability to stop one bowl from turning into 5 when sitting down at the breakfast table with a box of this stuff sitting in front of them. There are more flavors than you can possibly imagine…its kind of ridiculous. Some flavors must have […]

Fed Up on “FroYo”

First of all the term “fro-yo,” what all the cool kids call frozen yogurt, just angers me. Seriously, you don’t need to make a trend seem even more like a fad by giving it a cheesy name like “Fro-yo.” I like frozen yogurt, but I can’t bare to lose all masculinity by saying “I am […]

Things That Stop and Make You Think: “Heavy Duty” Mayo

I stumbled across this massive jar while shopping at Sam’s. Seriously. Since when does this society need “heavy duty” mayonnaise? Are we taking this stuff to the moon or repairing bridges with the goop? This one just pisses me off. Just call this mayo for what it really is; extra thick and fatty.

Actually Fed Well When Flying

It is no secret, airplane food sucks. It seems that the typical inflight food is exempt from all FDA requirements; The friendly skies are truly friendly to the major airlines own interpreptation of what is considered edible and safe to eat. I fly, a LOT…enough to give me a very good idea of what to […]

The Price of Love

I am fed up with all this “aphrodisiac” nonsense. It’s that time of year when all good marketers leverage Valentines day in order to make a quick buck, by pushing crap upon us with claims of how  it will show how romantic your are…or at least increase your odds of getting lucky. First of all, […]
