Note the adorable bull terrier S+P Shakers.  This was an easy meal to make.  We cut up a chicken breast and rolled it in seasoned bread crumbs, then fried the pieces in olive oil until golden brown.  The chicken then goes on a cooling rack on a cookie sheet and into the oven for 30 minutes at 350F.  Voila!  A delicious meal to share, and an serious donation to Breast Cancer research instead of pocket change from a corporation just looking to cash in on slacktivism.

WTF KFC!?!

29Apr10

Alright, this is an emergency podcast and update from ZFC.

For those of you who have your head in the sand (like us), or are from another country (also like us), you may not have noticed KFC's latest bid to raise sales, the pink-washed KFC bucket. Yep....the Susan G. Komen foundation gets a whole FIFTY CENTS for each bucket bought.

We've got a short podcast here explaining our thoughts about it and what we're doing.

We propose that KFC needs to pony up some real cash if they're planning to get the press for such a donation. 17 million buckets of chicken (which is what it takes to get to the $8.5 million donation they want to hit - the biggest ever to Susan G.) is a lot of sales, especially for a company who's sales were down 4% in 2009.

We're cutting out the middle man. We've donated the cost of a Canadian bucket (10 piece) straight to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Why should we subsidize KFC when we can give the money directly? Instead of the bucket, we're making our own dinner of home made, delicious fried chicken tonight (yes, pictures will follow).

Us Putting Our Money Where Our Mouth Is.

We invite anyone who wishes to join us. We recommend in the podcast to either do a retro donation of what a bucket cost as a kid, what a bucket costs now, or even just send the $0.50 straight to Susan G. without letting it pass through KFC's hands (and eliminating however they get to claim it on their taxes).

How can you do it?

Click here - http://ww5.komen.org/Donate/DonateOnline.html Or - if you don't trust us (and who says we're trustworthy, anyway?) put Susan G Komen into google and go through their site to donate. You can even donate via text message on your cell phone.

We would LOVE to have folk's pictures of their dinner at home in lieu of picking up a bucket of chicken. Send pics to zweifatchicks@gmail.com and we'll post 'em up here! We don't need fake corporate charity that only serves them in the long run.

Feeling the post-Christmas crunch?  Or just looking for a cheap, quick meal?  Nothing stretches an already maximized budget like ramen noodles!  A Chinese delicacy that was only available from restaurants until a post World War II Taiwanese-Japanese inventor pioneered a way to make them at home.  In this episode, we taste six different ramen noodle packages.

In this week's episode, we discuss a new burrito place in Oshawa called Viva Burritos.  Great food, old school customer service, affordable and quick!  Also, we pine for our favourite Morgantown Mexican Restaurant: Rio Grande III.

Towards the end of the episode, we incorrectly identified Chi-chi's downfall - it was not e. coli in the romaine or tainted salsa - it was Hepatitis A from the green onions.  Well, the moral of the story is, you can never trust a green onion cause you don't know where it's been.

Forgive the lateness of this episode, but moving really put us behind schedule.  We'll try to make it up with a ZFC Snack this week though.  Without further ado, art imitating life - food in games!

On Highway 11, heading up to Ontario's cottage country, there's a great place to stop and grab a bite and ... you know... make a pit stop.  :)  Simple, good food at a great price - check it out if you're in the Georgian Bay or Muskoka region.
