How Much Mayonnaise Again?

In It Came From YouTube! on August 3, 2009 at 4:00 pm

I spend a lot of time on YouTube searching for the next Chris-Chan, but unfortunately I’ve not found anything near as entertaining yet.  I did, however, discover Simply Sara.

Sara likes to share her own concoctions on the Internet, teaching us all how to cook with some brief lessons.  Let’s take a look at one, shall we?

Wanda’s Macaroni Salad

It’s not your traditional macaroni salad!

In a bowl, beat together and incorporate…

  • One 14 oz can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of white vinegar
  • 1 pint of “real” mayonnaise

Afterwards, add

  • 1 pound box of elbow macaroni
  • 1 large green pepper, seeded and diced
  • 3 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 large carrots OR 2 cups shredded carrots
  • Salt and Pepper, as desired

According to Sara, the final calorie count is 6805, with 358 grams of fat…but only 68 of those are saturated!

Now, I’m not an expert chef or anything, but I do enjoy cooking.  That said, am I the only one who thinks this seems a bit overboard?  Why is there so much mayonnaise?  There’s only a few more videos up on Sara’s ID.  From what I gather, she recently deleted an account and re-upped the videos, choosing to disable the comments, since all the videos were uploaded one month ago.

The Pull List! Aug. 8, 2009

In The Pull List! on August 3, 2009 at 2:11 pm

Another week, another pull list!  Not a lot to say this month, so let’s just dive right into it.  It’s fortunately another week light on Dark Reign related books, while DC continues to push the World Without Superman arc.  Remember to check the websites of each book’s publisher for more information, and don’t forget that just because it isn’t on the list doesn’t mean it isn’t good!

Also, big thanks to Marron over at Avengers Tower for the shameless plug; you can find what she’s picking up this week by clicking here.

In On Film on August 3, 2009 at 12:50 pm

ZombieAnother week of DVD/Blu-Ray horror is upon us. After a fairly eventful week last week, this week seems to be rather boring. However, there is one release that I encourage everyone to own.
