Company Cookbook

The Company Cookbook. Have you ever attended a company potluck? Did you vote on recipes and create a cookbook to send as promo to unsuspecting clients? Warning: If you select to read this post, you take "pot luck" - what was available, not knowing for sure what you might receive. (But be sure that, with this cookbook, it will include shredded cheese). And as a bonus, things you shouldn't bring to the company potluck.

No, but watch what you eat should always apply. I remember once backpacking with a girl friend. While making scrambled eggs in the morning the gnats just wouldn't stay away. She bitched about me putting pepper into the eggs without asking first, but seemed to devour them with great delight nonetheless.

There's a link in the comments to this site where the food is even scarier.

I get a kick out of those recipes in tabloids where all the quantities are one. One cup flour, one stick butter, one pound cheese. How could it have worked out that way by chance? mustn't there be some kind of cosmic force behind it?

Nicelink - what I enjoy about the recipes is the way that none of the 'ingredients' bare any resemblence to ingredients that someone who really cooks might use. Although its ubiquity suggests to me that canned mushroom soup might be the fish sauce or paremsan cheese of middle america....

BTW, I think the original one of these is here. The guy wrote a book: it was pretty good.

Oh man. I'm hungry. That breakfast casserole is good. I make it all the time. Hot breakfast every day for a week! Yes, I am a bachelor. Why do you ask?

That made me giggle so much that Robocop_is_bleeding thought I was a little crazy this morning. I'm going to bookmark that cookbook for when I'm having a bad day and need some cheap laughs.

Too funny, jrossi4r. I can't believe that those are real weight watcher recipe cards? A truly surefire way to lose weight.

If you ask the women in my family, those recipes are called 'Cuppacuppacuppas'. They generally require a cup of everything.

My Grandmother's peach cobbler cuppacuppacuppa is great... especially with a cup or so of ice cream.

Mmmm, mold balls.

I feel like I'm missing something. Is that stuff supposed to be REAL food?

I didn't see anything that even looked edible. Sausage and apples and mustard?

Holy crap. I've not seen stuff like that for years. One of my friend's parents had a cookbook with delicacies such as "Beef Bullets" (looked like faeces) and Curried Sheep Brains. Maybe it ended up influencing those guys.

As for the ubiquity of the cheese. Bloody hell, even in Scotland we dont eat shit like that any more. Well except for deep fried pizza occasionally.

But, but... I like mongoose bread.

Someone please tell me that this, this, this, and this really do taste good as long as you don't actually look at them.
