  •  I admit I watch Chopped. (3+ / 0-)

    It 's a lot like my kitchen. Ok, I have two hot dogs (that I bought for training the dogs but didn't use.) a sample size box of Life cereal; some canned whipped cream and half a bag of frozen peas in my kitchen.

    Mr Grover just called and said he's on his way home.

    Thirty minutes on the clock. Prepare an entree!

    Actually, I have learned about some funky ingredients on the show that I didn't grow up with and never would have tried. The judges tend to explain funky ingredients and tricks to preparing them. And I've tried quite a few(not eel or Rocky Mountain oysters though) with good results.

    But for shows where the end result is not actually edible, they don't appeal to me. But as art, I suppose they're kind of cool.

    I don't intend to watch Sugar Dome. The restaurant turn-around shows (the couple I've watched) tend to just bug me, mostly because I'm astounded by how many people sink hundreds of thousands of dollars buying restaurants when they know nothing about business or running a restaurant or running a kitchen.

    But compared to the horrible network shows like Apprentice, Fear factor, Hell's Kitchen, etc  I do kind of feel like Food Network's goal is NOT to simply humiliate people in their competition  shows.  So while I don't sit down and watch most of them, I don't actively rush over and turn off Cupcake Wars if the tv is on in the background.

    But that Sweet Genius dude is just too much.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
