Archive for the 'fries with that' Category

This episode we review an regional Ontario chain - Lick's!  We also found *another* all you can eat sushi place in Durham Region that kicks major butt and some tasting notes on Forty Creek Canadian Whiskey.  And if you are from Pittsburgh or are a transplant from that great city, check out the Burghseye View podcast for some candid talk about... well... everything from the 'Burgh.

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.



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 - 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 and we'll post 'em up here! We don't need fake corporate charity that only serves them in the long run.

This weeks episode is about an Oshawa fixture and a new food-centric manga that we found!

Never play cards with a man called Doc. Never eat at a place called Mom’s. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own.” -- Nelson Algren, A Walk on The Wild Side (1956)

In this week's episode, we discuss a hidden gem called Momma's that brings the lunch counter back to the present and into a mall! We also have sad news regarding Pete's Open Kitchen (which we really hope is reversed), and some info about the next episode, which will be recorded this week with a special guest. ;)

For your viewing pleasure, two semi-related videos:

The Good Fare and Cheer of Old England is a book we discovered at the Orillia Library.  We loved it so much we bought a copy, and felt it needed it's own ZFC show to spread the word about how great a book it is!  We are going to look into the copyright information (so far it looks like it has not been renewed and has fallen into Public Domain), so we are also going to work on creating an Audiobook version of it.

We found a great new winery in Stouffville! Also, a long time coming, the great Oshawa landmark - Teddy's!!

We hated to say farewell to Montreal, but we shall definitely return again someday.  So many delicious food and drink, so little time!

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.
