Would You Like Some Al Yankovic With That Veal Cordon Bleu? And Other Food-Music News

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

Wine with food. Okay, we’ve all pretty much gotten used to the idea of pairing food with adult-friendly grape juice. Cheese?  Yes, we’re learning to deal with food-cheese pairings, especially at swank parties. Beer and food? Of course that’s a great idea. (Taking it further, […]

Barbeque, Knick-Knacks and Snow White: Dinner Theater With a Contender

Last evening we went to a special event. The Catholic high school in Seguin has a tradition of delivering great one-act plays; they’ve been to State competition several times, and this year will make three trips in a row. Maybe they have an unfair advantage or two. Like truly engaged teaching and coaching. Parents […]

Ribfest Today! Y’all Come On By

That big pile of cars you see out front? Ribfest arrivals. (That’s me collecting exorbitant parking fees.)

The milling crowd, hoping for a whiff of the smoke from the pit? That’s Clan and friends, who can hardly contain themselves. (No news there.)

That sound like low-level fireworks going off in the background? That’s not fireworks, that’s […]

New Year's Day Celebration at the White House: Fish Fry!

The clan gathered at the central Texas White House on Saturday to do all those things that a large group of relatives enjoy while kicking off a new year: Eat, visit, eat, tell fish-story whoppers tales, eat, hold the World Championship in Mexican Train, eat some more, play music, snack, toss the football around […]

Ode to the Humble, Fighting Pea: Recipes for the New Year

I’m sure there’s a legend somewhere about the black-eyed pea, and how it got its black eye fighting for some noble cause. (Rather like something that Rudyard Kipling might write, given his Just So Stories.) Even though they won, they still got a black eye.

They also have a bit of a “black eye” as […]

Time to Celebrate! CU Joins 700 Club (the Real One)

That’s right, folks, it’s time to go out and tie one on like an out-of-control Lindsay Lohan celebrate once again! The Chile Underground has passed Yet Another Milestone in its ongoing quest to provide you with the best in zesty comestibles, great travel ideas, and tasteless spicy food humor. We achieved 700 posts as […]

Friday Follies: Rise of Civilization Blamed on Beer

Present-day civilization has lots of wonderful stuff that we seldom think twice about. Like the cultivation of grain, for instance. Heck, it wasn’t until the last century that we could gather grains easily using farm machines! Until then, it all had to be gathered by hand, and that’s a time-consuming and back-breaking enterprise. There […]

Welcome to September! Too Bad It's Not Really Fall Yet...

September has snuck up on us, it seems. “Time sneaks up on you like a windshield on a bug,” John Lithgow once stated. Seems he was right, at least this once…

Of course, the start of September (or any other month) is a man-made delineation, and the seasons usually ignore such artificial markers and go […]
