What Washington Eats Wednesdays: Eliot Spitzer

Oh, the bridge-and- tunnel scandalishousnous. This has been a bad week for the now-former New York governor. Eliot "I've been a Bad Hypocrite" Spitzer resigned yesterday over his involvement in a prostitution ring that included this woman:

Ashley Alexandra Dupre (real name Yelman?) is the $1000 an hour call girl (abused runaway from a broken home aspiring r&b singer) whom he brought from New York to DC for a tryst February 13th (and sometime in January as well). So nuts! Eliot, we have dirty, dirty, late-night New York style BIG slice pie here, too, ya know (with extra cheese, the way you apparently like it)! You didn't have to transport it!

Related: What brand of perverse is it to use the very same techniques yourself for your own sicktual enjoyment (with an abused, runaway, drug addicted jersey hookah who is not much older than your own daughters) that you tenaciously sniff (no pun intended) out to ruin other (hapless, less prosecutorially powerful) people? This is just whoreable behavior.

Pork Chops and Apple "Sauce" To Make Alice Proud

Remember the Brady Bunch episode when Peter asked Alice what was for supper and when she said "Pork Chops and Applesauce", he repeated it in a poor imitation of Humphrey Bogart? Here's to Alice's all-American favorite, but with a twist:
The apple sauce is actually fuji apples sliced and stewed in an orange, nutmeg, ginger, and cinammon syrup. I fried up some pork chops that I had marinated in Worcesteshire and garlic, then dredged in some breadcrumbs. Used a non-stick skillet and left them for about 3.5 minutes a side. Served them with the apples, using the syrup as a sauce for the meat, and added some roasted rosemary potatoes left over from Saturday night.

Simple Burgers and a Riveting Movie

Spent a lazy Saturday evening in front of the television watching the last two "Bourne" movies (Supremacy and Ultimatum). Riveting. Matt Damon is very convincing as a tortured assassin.

Made buffalo burgers, pan fried them to medium rare on the iron skillet. Topped with blue cheese, heirloom tomatoes, and some avocado. Roasted some red skin potatoes in mustard, garlic and rosemary. Simple. A hearty and believably easy tavern meal.

The Mess Hall Cook in Chef's Clothing

Hey, if you're gonna lie, do it big! Robert Irvine lied about cooking for the British Royal family, as well as some U.S. Presidents, on his resume. Wow! That's an amazing fabrication! Cooking for world leaders/royalty in not one, but two countries!
I would have toned it down myself: making bangers and mash for Fergie (of Dutchess of York, not Black Eye Peas, fame).
The host of Food Network's Dinner Impossible was fired by the network after revelations of his embellishments of his credentials surfaced. They will finish out the season by airing the remaining episodes while looking for a replacement.

I'm totally sad...not because they're losing Irvine, but because that stupid show will continue.
