    Sean’s Gourmet Menu usually consists of these hardcore choices:
    1- Peanut butter sandwich
    2- Chef Boyardee in a can
    3- Ramen noodles
    4- Chicken nuggets with ketchup
    5- Buddah’s leftovers
    drink of choice- can of coke or pepsi

    The cartoon is reminiscent of Jim Campbell’s chipotle nuggets recipe, except use a crock pot instead of a microwave!

    Get it straight Big Guy!! That’s my “Marinated boneless chicken, quick fried in a breaded coating, and topped with a chipotle sauce and set to slow cook” 🙂

    “Pasta al dente in a Chipotle Cheddar Roux” is the other one 😉

    I laid witness to the innovation at my first Fire Mountain Krewe. Genius! :chef:

    Why does this sound simultaneously nasty and awesomely yummy? 😆

    If you have had the Mild to Wild Chipotle BBQ sauce, then you have your answer.

    So he can go shopping once every 5 years and be good.

    Wow…I just cannot imagine. No fresh fruits or veggies?

    Ketchup is a veggie sauce. :hungry:

  • May 6, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    or a fruit sauce depending who you are asking.

    Hey Boobie I finally figured out how to play poker. Let’s go to Vegas!

    Oh where Oh where can he be? Just wondering if anybody knows where homonculus could be. He was spotted in Fairfield Ohio a couple years ago and I heard he stowed away on a flight to Arizona. Then he supposedly made his way Down Under. Anybody spotted him anywhere? Here he is at Jungle Jims.

    Rumor has it that she’s fully recovered from her head injuries and is now living with someone in a brewery town who has access to generous amounts of beer…

    She left me high and dry in Minneapolis, and I will never forgive her. 😡

  • May 11, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    Don’t take it so hard. Homonculus was born to roam free… 😉

    Just letting everyone know I still have lots of plants left to sell. I have Butch T Scorpion, Moruga Scorpion, 7 Pot Jonah, Yellow 7 Pot, Bhut Jolokia, Chocolate Bhut Jolokia, Yellow Bhut Jolokia, Malaysian Goronong and many more.

    I was just wondering if anyone would be willing to share some insight on the best way to go about assigning prices to fresh 7-pot, scorpion, naga, bhut etc. I will be selling at a local market and to a few local grocers. I sold the bhut jolokia the last 2 years at a farmers market but never really had a good feeling if I was asking the right price. Just wondering how you all come up with your pricing for fresh produce. Thanks, Tim – Omaha, NE

    Do not take less than $12 a pound for superhots. You could sell a single fresh pepper for $1 or 10 for $5 be creative!

  • May 21, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Sounds good Jim, thanks for the feedback. Excitement is building about the Scorpion and 7-pot varieties with my customers, can’t wait to try them myself.
