Food Network, Part Two

I meant to add this to yesterday's post but forgot.


It seems like all of the cooking shows we watch are impacting more than just my palate.  Since I'd crowded my protein, I decided I'd just dump my stuff into the larger cast iron skillet that RockCrawlinChef was using.  He was deglazing the pan with merlot (getting the yummy crunchies off the bottom of the pan) to add to the Shepherd's Pie he was making and I told him, "I'm just going to dump this hamburger in there when you're done.  I'm not even going to rinse it [the pan] out, it'll give the chili a nice depth of flavor."

WTH?  Since when did "depth of flavor" become part of my speaking vocabulary?

It's time for me to put down the remote and step away from Food Network.

I had to go back and read this because I need a good chili receipe. If you have time will you send me yours?

Just stop it! I don't want any of that language infiltrating MY mouth. Good thing I'm the baker and Bill's the cook up here. I will only worry if I start hearing him say those things.

I can't wait to hear Bill and K's comment on depth of flavor, based on their comments on the last post....

Just saying....

LOL! As if ... I just found the Cooking Channel, so I've become twice as addicted.

Deejo told me that using "depth of flavor" was just GunDiva-speak for "I was too lazy to wash the pan".

There might have been a little bit of truth in that statement.
