Honey, What's For Dinner?

I walked into the kitchen the other night and became concerned that Supreme Leader had converted us to cannibalism again. Or, she'd gone all zombie Julia Child.


Turns out it was just a watermelon and not a brain.


Heh, did I say 'cannibalism again?' I just meant cannibalism. Silly me.

  2. Well, that is awesome! I now know that I can sculpt a watermelon to look like a brain. Indy's b-day party is coming up (Indiana Jones themed-are you surprised?) and I was going to try to make jello brains (a la Temple of Doom), but now maybe I'll do watermelon instead. Thanks for the idea.

  3. The labels for this post include the terms "watermelon" and "zombies" next to each other, two words I never considered together. Fruit zombies? I can see them now shuffling about while groaning "cantaloupe".

  4. shit! Are you SURE that's a watermelon?? It kinda doesn't look like one! But then I've never seen one prepared that way, either.

    Great. Now fruit is going to creep me out too. Thanks a lot!

  5. I thought it was a bike helmet, at first. I bet watermelon rinds would make cool bike helmets. Except they wouldn't really protect your head if you hit something really hard. But they would look cool.

    Thank you for clarifying the "again" part, hehheh, good. I'll just stay over here, out of fork range, if you don't mind, though.

  6. Somehow, I feel bad for that watermelon. How demoralizing.

    Was it good? And do you sprinkle salt on it? I love watermelon with salt.

  7. Wow. Supreme Leader sure knows how to dissect a watermelon!

    Perhaps she might pursue a career as a Forensic Melonologist.

  8. Zombie Julia Child? That would be one knife wielding wine guzzling accented zombie. I've got to see that. From a distance of course.

  9. It might be brain you know, most people I know have watermelons for brains.

  10. What are we going to do do tonight, Brain?

    Same as we do every night, Captain, try to take over the Province!

    (Have to start small-ish).

  11. thank god, I thought it was some sort of organ.

    Nothing worse than pancreas with a light white wine reduction.

  12. I made a cumin pork thing once and Tempel went around telling everyone we ate human for dinner. So yeah, we do the cannibalism thing sometimes too.

  13. Im impressed. I dont even go into the kitchen. You have a good wife

  14. That is a very odd way to treat a watermelon.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Definitely creepy. Who knew you could make a melon scary??

  16. I'm totally going to use that to fool the real zombies when they show up.

    Til then, uh...I'll pass on that dinner invite.

  17. Brain? Looks like an ass to me. Maybe it's just me. And maybe I'm just horny.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes, that is entirely too large to be a child's brain...

    ReplyDelete
  19. It's entirely too large to be a man's brain too.
    (Oh! She went there!)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah, that seems about right. Zombie Julia Child would totally have sliced a brain lengthwise.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Holy crap.

    Should I call the Fruit Abuse people?

    Oh, Lord. That sounded even worse than what y'all have done!

  22. Oh, oh - I forgot By the way, if you know any James Taylor fans, I'm giving way tickets next Monday on my blog to the Lenox, MA concert in August!

  23. Dude - you DON'T want to know what I was thinking but glad it wasn't that!

    ReplyDelete
  24. How on earth did she skin a watermelon?! I want to try!

    ReplyDelete
  25. That looks pretty disgusting upon first glance. That woman is talented!

    ReplyDelete
  26. oh ho, the old 'brain disguised as a watermelon' trick works again!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Maybe it WAS a brain. The brain of a very dumb person because I'm thinking a really smart brain would have had more wrinkles in it. I mean...isn't that how all the knowledge stays put? Inside the wrinkles?

    ReplyDelete
  28. She is brilliant with a knife. I would sleep with one eye open.

  29. Original looking watermelon. Horror as meal, interesting concept. It does so look like a brain. Have you eaten brain before so that you would think your wife was serving it again?
    I might try to carve a watermelon to look like this. I want to see if I can freak out my girls.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just want to know how she got it out of the rind so perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  31. lmao @ DCUrbanDad!

    anyways, we have watermelon with like every meal in the summer. it is way better than brains. more crips and refreshing.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That looks what I'd imagine my surgery last week looked like.

    ReplyDelete
  33. That would be great with a little Lavendar sprinkled on top.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That's the neatest pealed and cut watermelon I've ever seen. It's... sculpted almost! I butcher fruits when I try cutting and pealing them.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I never saw no watermelon that looked like that!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just love your twisted sense of humor! Makes me feel rather sane.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am with Michel! Really creepy! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Mmm... brains!

    I know it's been said before, but you're wife has superior carving skills.

    ReplyDelete
  39. If it was a brain, would you have eaten it?

    Cause that would've been awesome. We could call you Zombie Dumbass.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The Zombie Appetizer Melon does look pretty damn creepy though.

    ReplyDelete
  41. It looks like your wife was expecting Gallagher over for dinner...

    ReplyDelete
  42. "cannibalism, again.."

    Supreme Leader didn't happen to play Rugby and end up in the Andes, did she.

    Watermelon....the new Zombie Decoy.
    Cause, they're coming. The Zombies are.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Don't worry about the "again" part. Everyone has had a "cannibalism incident" in their life. It's like lesbianism for women.

    ReplyDelete
  44. That looks completely disgusting. And me knowing is a watermelon doesn't help any. Blech.

    ReplyDelete
  45. No. Brains have more texture.

    Not that I know or anything.

    Ahem.

    ReplyDelete
  46. oh my God. That scared me a little.


    JUSt a little.

    ReplyDelete
  47. That is a very naked watermelon.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'd like to know how she got it looking that way. Those things aren't easy to strip ;)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I used to practice skinning people by using that top layer of pudding. Now I'm really good at it. I just need a victim.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I've never seen a watermelon cut up like that before - a little creepy.

Come on, sailor. I love you long time.
