curried weevils
« on: September 24, 2009, 10:45:14 PM »
a couple of hours ago i was preparing raw shrimp to cover with curry powder & let them sit in the fridge before sauteing them.  i opened the little left cover of the curry tin & shook the tin over the shrimp but nothing came out.  i opened the right cover and shook again.  immediately my half-blind eyes saw movement so i looked without my glasses at the bowl's contents.  the adorable little weevils crawling over everything almost made me ill.

then i simply rationalized i could use fewer sesame seeds after cooking and they were crunchier and tastier, too!

as if.  i spent the next 15 minutes at the sink washing and inspecting each shrimp minutely.  luckily the kashi was a little overcooked so there was nothing crunchy in the dish.

i started to name them but after zebediah # 53 i got bored and put the rest in little mini-tombs of the "unknown weevil."   my hands were practically crippled after inscribing names on all those tiny pieces of granite.

if i hadn't seen movement i probably would have eaten them because my vision is so bad.  i love curried chicken so maybe next time the opportunity arises will try... if i notice.  for all i know i've eaten weevils and assorted critters who weren't moving when dumped into the bowl, pot, etc.  thank goodness the mild curry was weevil-free, or at least i think it was.

we laugh at e. coli in the usa since 94.567% of ground beef has enough e. coli to kill a tabernacle full of mormons.

   Use to stay in this 3/4 way house back when I was 18.  We had all our food donated through charities.  One time they made this delectable dish of beef stew and white rice.  It was really good until someone said the rice had maggots in it.  Then the mood in the dining area changed and the natives started to revolt.  The house man, a very large black man we called Mr Mack, came in and told us if we did not like what was on the menu for that evening we were always welcome to go to the water fountain and fill our stomachs with water......  I still remember the stuffed green peppers, they were so rotten that you could slice them with a spoon.  YUMMY!

Needless to say I smoked 3 cigarettes back to back and called it a night.....  other guys were swallowing mouth wash so they could go to bed buzzed and forget the hunger pains.  It's rather funny though, the rat infested hell hole was called the Tudor hotel down in South Beach, on 11th and Collins.  Now it's been renovated into a 5 star hotel of sorts and the rooms..... well let's just say they are a lil bigger and more lavish that what I remember back in 1986.   

To tell the truth some curried weevils sound pretty tasty!

skeebo, you know there is always a place for you at weevil's 12 goose steps house for the cooly addicted and formerly cooly addicted, new orleans branch.  when we run out of weevils we use palmetto bugs (aka cock-a-roaches) but adding cumin to the curry mix makes them quite palatable.  unfortunately maggots start flying so soon in this climate we rarely have enough refrigerated to make a truly delectable maggot goulash (i.e., a can of dinty moore 500000% fat beef-byproduct stew with extra ketchup left open in the sun for 45 minutes) but if you book 9 days in advance we'll do our very best. 

bed bugs & crab lice on the house.  scabies available at very reasonable seasonal rates.  please ask the desk clerk for current carte de STDs upon your arrival.

P.S.  if your daughter has a tat we will require a $57.63 deposit in advance.
