This next party is a party we’ll want to leave fast. I’m embarrassed to say that my mother is the host.
“Adam,” she said to me yesterday, “I have a great recipe I found from Hungry Girl.” My mom reads a diet-oriented food site called Hungry Girl which, I have come to believe, is the work of the devil. The recipe is for “Swap-Corn Shrimp.” Are you ready to be horrified?
Here’s the recipe but I’ll sum it up for you so you don’t have to click: You take nice, happy raw shrimp. Then you dip them in Egg Beaters–not real eggs, but orangey chemical muck. And then you do something horrific, are you ready? You take Fiber One bran cereal and crush it up and then coat the shrimp in FIBER ONE and bake the shrimp in the oven! This is the recipe my mother thought I would like!
We must leave this party! Hurry, grab your coat, let’s go!
