Our Sexy Week Comes To A Close


Here's your cheerleader. Talk amongst yourselves. I'm gonna go have some Barefoot Contessa orzo salad. (And yes, I made it myself. I am the total package.)

did you use the pignolis too?

I rape red sox fans said...

Also absent from the sexy draft: go-go boots.

Big Daddy Drew said...

Yes, I did. The pignolis, basil and feta make the dish.

Jess said...

Fantastic. that and the scarlett pic made my Good Friday.

Grimey said...

Uh-oh. Check out her ribs. I think we've seen this before....

save the steagles said...

I wouldn't have taken Drew for a Barefoot Contessa man; I prefer Paula Dean myself.

Dan said...

Not impressed (with the cheerleader, not the food preparation).

Also, Barefoot Contessa is so hard to look at that I can't even look at her food.

Gimme some Giada.

Big Daddy Drew said...

Paula Dean disgusts me.

Dan said...

That's odd.

I posted as me and not as the last unitard, like every other post I've made.

Fuck.. now everyone knows my secret identity.

DrDoom said...

I know i am going to be blasted for posting another link but after reading awful officiating i think that boycotting espn is a good idea and so i have set up a site dedicated to that. Anyone who wants can contribute, once again this si not my idea and i take no credit for it i am just piggybacking on someone elses good idea.

I apologize if this is considered spanning and if it is i will enver do it again in the future.

Redhead said...

Yeah, the Barefoot Contessa is no looker, but her desserts always look great. Those coconut cupcakes she made once actually made my mouth water.

Chris said...

I am an Alton Brown man myself. I would have definitely gone with Giada as well.

BeaverFever said...

BDD, correct me if i'm wrong but according to your thanksgiving post i thought you couldn't stand barefoot cuntessa (not a typo).

i like the blond on the food network that always mixes in some booze with her recipes and meals.

and as always the cheerleader pic is appreciated.

Big Daddy Drew said...

bf, I ripped on her, but her recipes are pretty darn good.

And I hate Alton Brown.

Redhead said...

Tyler Florence always looks good too. Oops, I meant his food looks good.

BeaverFever said...

yes, i guess it is important to seperate the cook from the recipe. thanks for clarifying.

sara lee is the blond i'm thinking of.

also, the ace of cakes guy annoys me and i wouldn't know who any of these people are if it weren't my wifes favorite channel.

Redhead said...

I can't believe I know this, but it's Sandra Lee (Sara Lee is the one who makes the awesome pound cakes).

Grimey said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

Chicken. Pasta. Sauce.

That's all you need.

BeaverFever said...

thanks for the info redhead. i had to go look it up.

Signal to Noise said...

At least the Barefoot Contessa makes something worth eating every so often.

Can't say that about Paula Deen, Sandra Lee's semi-homemade crap, or Rachael Ray's canned bullshit (that woman makes food cry.)

Is that a Raider cheerleader? I'd have thought they'd be a bit more butterfaced.

Proinsias Cassidy said...

There was an episode of Drawn Together in which the Princess thought her heathen room mates were taken by The Rapture. She stated that, 'This is one of God's cruel jokes; like Rachel Ray's face.'

Paul the semi-awesome said...

Granted the barefoot contessa's face makes children cry, but its still better than the molded butter of Paula Deen's face.

I usually do not have a problem with Giada, but ever since the fiancee told me that her body is like ten times too tiny for her big enormous head, I can't find her as sexy. Rachel Ray's food and vernacular may be crappy, but I got somehting she can put in her mouth....

devang said...

I like Bobby Flay because he grills a lot and spices up all his food. Mario Batali is pretty fuckin' awesome with his Italian recipes and wine pairings.

devang said...

Threadjack WTF!!!! Has Schrutebag done it again? The Big Lead seems to be down yet again. /end threadjack

Vanilla said...

Tyler Florence, Bobby Flay, the barefoot contessa. Have the women folk already taken over?

Slash said...

Here's a question (from someone who doesn't watch sports, ever): Why don't professional cheerleaders (as opposed to the college variety) wear the cheerleader skirts? I thought the appeal of the cheerleader uniform was the pleated skirt, the sweater, the whole schoolgirl thing... just wondering. The pro cheerleaders dress like figure skaters from 1986. What gives?

Slash said...

And the Italian chick does have sort of a big head, but I figured her big cans (usually prominently displayed, right there near the food) would make up for that. When you get tired of looking at the food, you look just a little bit farther north and there they are.

D said...

Is that Jodie Foster?

Mike said...

Sandra Lee is hot, but she's for shit as a "cook."

Giada's smile is too big, Rachael Ray is the world's most annoying human being, and Paula Dean is a clown.

For cooking, no one beats my man, Jacque Pepin. Dude rocks the house.

Grimey said...

Iron Chef Japan owns you.

He took on this rando chef who won some international pasta cooking contest that only takes place every ten years... dude was making pasta with LIQUID NITROGEN in Kitchen Stadium.

So what does Iron Chef Japan do? He makes ramen noodles. FTW.

Stuck in the Ivy said...

Barefoot Contessa? Orzo salad?

I am not nearly as cultured as you people.

Probably explains why I couldn't really appreciate the Mary Janes and Wedges.

The Pirate Sloth said...

Please no one buy anything from Paula Dean. She's an evil woman, rips off local Savannah-ites (if they ever actually go into her terrible restaurant), rips off the tourists who DO eat in her terrible restaurant, and treats all of her employees like shit.

Laser Rocket Arm said...

Tony Bourdain uber alles. Even if he's not on Food Network anymore he's still the shit.

Bobby Flay is a dick and I rank a meal I had at Mesa Grill a few years back among the worst of all time.

And Rachael Ray is the Antichrist.

Although I have to go against Pirate Sloth and say that I had a very good meal at the Lady & Sons while passing through Savannah, even if the constant pushing of Paula Deen-related crap got on my nerves.

Mike said...

I rank a meal I had at Mesa Grill a few years back among the worst of all time.

I find that very hard to believe. Flay may be a cocky bastard, but the meals I've had at Mesa Grill were excellent. Really good.

What'd you have that sucked so much?

Laser Rocket Arm said...

It was a quesadilla, believe it or not. I'm sure it would have tasted fine had whoever made it not burned the crap out of it. Seriously, it came to the table totally black and smoking. When I brought this to the waitron's attention, he gave a sniff and said "dear, that's how it's supposed to be, it's blackened." I pointed out that there was a difference between blackened and incinerated, and he said "you need to get out more." This was right after Mesa Grill opened and everyone was raving about it, but burnt food + condescending waitron = Mesa Grill sucks. However, many people I know rave about Mesa Grill and also his place in Vegas, so I may give Flay another chance.
