OREO – COOKIE BUTTER

17 May

UntitledOh dear lord.

Are these even still out ?

(editor:  no, they are not…so please don’t report on something that is no longer available. )

Hell with it –  I am talking about them anyway….

(editor:  please move on.  you missed the boat)

No – I gotta get this off my chest.  These things are …well….WERE awesome…prolly one of the BEST Oreos I ever had – and they are silly for not making them a permanent thing.

(editor note:  can I see you in my office when you are done?  thanks)

hmmmmm…..wonder what that is about?

FRITOS – SPICY JALAPENO

16 May

UntitledAnyone reading this can email me and explain to me exactly WHY…..I never tried these before now?

wow….are these addictive.   Love them and I am a complete idiot for taking so long to discover this low-key-yet-kick-ass flavor.   Simple and effective.

 

7-11 – Locally Made Meals – Chicken Parm

11 May

UntitledIf you read JFC on any regular basis, and why wouldn’t you?…. you know we love THE SEV.   So hearing that they were coming out with their own line of “grab-n-go” locally prepared meals…we gots excited y’all!

And nervous….I mean let’s get real…this could go either way.

Once I heard that Chicken Parm was one of the choices, then I was super-curious…was it possible to make a heat-n-eat Chicken Parm that I could eat sitting on the curb at the Sev…and be happy with it?

Here goes…..

I wasn’t totally shocked but I was pleasantly surprised how GOOD it was.   I mean you have to keep in mind…you are getting this from a convenience store at any given moment.  I have certainly had worse frozen dinners…and I can think of a couple of Italian restaurants that wishes their chicken parm was this good.  For Five Bucks??? nice.

I got to give it to The Sev for stepping up their game on something like this.   There are FOURTEEN different dishes available at any one time.

The ONLY problem I see with this is marketing.   The Sev, for whatever reason, has chosen to use one of the Dallas Cowboys as their spokesperson for this here locally.   No football player is going to appeal to my sense of convenience or give something like “grab-n-go” food a chance.  EVER.

I would hate to see such a great idea fall to the wayside due to the fact that NOBODY has heard that it’s available or they stumbled with the ad campaign.   The chicken parm…at least…is worth a try.

ARBY’S – CHICKEN PEPPERONI – PARM SANDWICH

11 Oct

UntitledWOW. This.  Is.  Special.   Arby’s you did it this time!

This is the best sammich I have ever had from Arby’s.  It’s sooooo good.

If it was just a chicken parm sammich I would be happy…but just the simple addition of some deli slice pepperoni takes this to the next level.  It’s for a limited time..so go get it FAST….oh lawd…..it’s so good…

MAZZIO’S – TOASTED RAVIOLI

5 Oct

Untitled…ahhhhh once again we catch up with my all-time favorite pizza parlor….Mazzio’s.

Unfortunately there isn’t a Mazzio’s close to me.   Sad emoji.

So whenever I am in a town that has a Mazzio’s, I am always instantly craving pizza….and sometimes I forget that they make other things that are just as awesome – like this “Toasted Ravioli”.  It’s sausage and cheese blended and breaded raviolis then dusted with cheese and served up with some marinara sauce.  It’s a fantastic appetizer, snack, or meal by itself!   Love, Love, LOVE these!!!!!  woo!

DIGIORNO PAN PIZZA

8 Sep

UntitledThis.  is.  Genius.   I LOVE deep dish pizza…wait…I prefer Thin crust pizza…but when I get a hankerin’ for deep dish…that hankerin’ is SERIOUS!!! ….so to have this as an emergency craving-buster is awesome!  It even comes with its own pan!

I went with your basic pepperoni…and my constant thought is that this reminds me of Little Caesars Deep Dish…which I adore…..so these be some high standards I am thrusting on this frozen pie.

Looking at that pic…the undercrust looks slightly UNdone to me.  I want that crispy crunchy edges like I get from Little Caesars.   But I am positive and hopeful this is gonna turn out great!

UntitledMinutes later I am thinking I should over-cook it just a tad to get some char….and you see my results.

Some might say I burnt the thing.

I say…shut your mouth.

This was so very good.   Not as good as Little Caesars but come on…….

In hindsight I should have pulled the pie out a few minutes early and sprayed some oil in the pan so it could cook he bottom crust more.   But it was a solid pizza.   Needed extra sauce though…but that’s an easy fix.  I would totally serve these up at a last-minute party or gametime snack attack.
