And The Trophy Goes To...

We take our food responsibility very seriously here. We got a sick man to feed, my friends. We've consulted people from all over the globe, pastry chef from Paris, chefs from Italy, Germany and Switzerland (English food bites - trust me, I'm English) and oh, a couple of guys from Sheboygan. So after months of searching for recipes, experimenting and tweaking them to get them just right, last night Pop said this to me:

"You know, I have to say, for the first time in quite a while, I really enjoyed a supper. And I felt good, too."

So what was the culinary masterpiece that finally hit Pop in the Sweet Spot?

2 Oscar Meyer low-fat beef hot dogs on toasted buns, macaroni salad and potato salad. Store-bought salads, by the way.

I know. It was the Gulden's mustard that made the difference. None of that foofy Grey Pooped On for us, pal.

Take that, Food Network.


I'll make Chicken Lippy. Here's the recipe:


  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • 10 fluid ounces white wine

  • 1/4 cup minced shallots

  • 1 tablespoon wasabi paste, or to taste

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cubed

  • salt and black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

  • 1 cup chopped cilantro leaves

  • 6 (6 ounce) fresh tuna steaks, 1 inch thick


I'm still Stupid at times.


  1. Hi Lippy,
    I'm still really weak but I'm forcing the food down. I get quite a kick out of pop. :)

    I like a little poop in my mustard. LOL

    Old people and kids always like the stuff that isn't homemade! lol Anything out of a box is gourmet to them! If he likes hot dogs, he'll go wild over "hot pockets"! (ew) Bon appetite! ~Jill

  4. Ah see sometimes you just need good old American Food! LOL

  5. Chicken Lippy sounds good (and yes, I noticed no chicken!! LOL) Let us know how it goes over with the crowd.

    You know, sometimes just the simple things, like hot dogs, can be the perfect food!

    Keep on feedin that man right!!


  6. Chicken or tuna your recipe sounds great! I'll pass on the hot dogs though, pop can have mine ;-)

  7. Hi Jimmy,

    LOL I'm glad you finally found something he liked. Hot dogs huh? Who knew?? LOL!
    "Chicken" huh? You are so funny!

  9. Hot dogs? UGH! :0

    There's something very fishy about your Chicken Lippy recipe.

    Jimmy I am glad you found something Pop enjoyed so much ~ your Lippy Chicken sound delicious but I do feel there is something a little but fishy ~ but I can't think what is is :o) ~ Ally c

  11. Nice recipe mate. I need to try that. Ummm, English food bites? Is that good or bad? If it's bad, you ain't been over in a while, cos it's rockin in our restaurants now.
    Gaz ;-)

  12. Okay that actually sounds really good lol And the recipe name is to die for. Not for the chicken though. It is for the tuna.


  13. I used to work for the company that makes Gulden's mustard...before I retired of course! :)
    Love ya babe!!


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
