I have been following the blogging and cooking adventures of Steve over at Hog on Ice for a couple of months. In addition to being a good cook, Steve is hilarious.
Currently working on his second cookbook, his first book Eat What You Want and Die Like a Man is even making him a little cash to pay for his blogging and eating habits.
Steve says: “Live Fat, die young, and leave a really big corpse.” I LIKE IT! Steve and I are men of the same (clogged) vein when it comes to cooking.
Then there is this news story: Southern Food Frustrates Health Officials.
“DECATUR, Ga. Feb 13, 2005 — When Becky Cleaveland is out with her girlfriends, they all pick at salads except for the petite Atlanta woman. She tackles "The Hamdog."
The dish, a specialty of Mulligan's, a suburban bar, is a hot dog wrapped by a beef patty that's deep fried, covered with chili, cheese and onions and served on a hoagie bun. Oh yeah, it's also topped with a fried egg and two fistfuls of fries.”
I love it, a hot dog weiner wrapped in a beef patty, etc., etc.
I am happy as hell that Southern food still frustrates the bed wetting liberal-know-it-alls over at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta. If I listened to them, when it comes to cooking, I would have to leave out a very important ingredient…
And I just can’t do that, no matter what my waist size expands to..
