I don't know how I feel about myself that I went into this praying "please tell me he didn't cook with urine", and then felt relieved when I realized peepee meant penis, not pee.

Costco has the best deals on bully sticks imo. $41 (horrifying) for like 12 and they're all at least 12" long. Inflation has hit bully sticks hard this year.

You need to take this a step further. Keep the bully sticks, but add some chitlins to the boil as well. Now you have cocky-o e peepee.

Ok. I’m LMAO at a Starbucks in Hillsboro, OR while waiting for the paint to dry (literally) so I can use the Supercharger to continue the road trip to Portland. Beat you by a week!

So.... when I was a young chef-to-be, I mastered the art of French cooking quite handily with one exception: rolled omelette. The oldest experienced Chef took me aside after school one day. He said, “Meet me here at 6:45 tomorrow morning!” He placed a garbage bin, stack of egg flats and a pound of butter at my station. 110 eggs later, I finally nailed it. Yes, indeed, I admit to having a lil anxiety when asked to produce one. 😆

"Try mentioning cacio e pepe to a professional chef and see what happens. They are obligated to nod gravely and tell you loudly that it is the most important dish they’ve ever learned how to cook. If you follow up by asking them about French-style omelets, they will look around nervously and say the exact same thing while trying not to cry."

Lolol. Your food adventures are great, but your writing is the best part.

If you put the leftovers in a round-enough container, could you say the Cacio e peepee is stored in the balls?

I think the odor-full bully stick would be the choice of Italian chefs. There is nothing like the smell of one of those wafting over us when our dog is going to town on it. I'm sure the cats would go nuts trying to determine what you were making them.
