Though I’m more gourmand than gourmet, I appreciate quality food, and since I have a ten-year-old who helps to brainstorm meals, we’re often eating foods inspired by her media input.  Thankfully, the “nugget/biscuit/nugget in a biscuit” phase didn’t last, we’ve made at least one decent Garfield-type lasagna, and once bought an extremely expensive packet of Wensleydale cheese, thanks to the adventures of Wallace & Gromit.  Jelly babies were a miss, but spaghetti tacos ala iCarly are amazing, and the propensity of such pop-culture food choices leads us to today’s high-calorie query…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
