Come Monday...Good Eats

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about, websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

If you have been paying very much attention at all to what is often going on here, you will be aware of the fact that I am rather strange in some ways. Okay, maybe in a lot of ways, but that is not something that I like to keep a close eye on.

Anyway, I suppose that becoming a fan of Alton Brown’s [Good Eats] on the [Food Network] does count as one in the strange column. For a manly man like myself normally only cares about killing the stuff that the little woman is duty-bound to prepare a delicious meal out of in pure appreciation for having such a fine example of manliness around.

Mr. Brown, however, has a way of presenting things that makes cooking almost appear to be not just woman’s work. In fact, he even gets into scientific stuff that is obviously way over the heads of most wives.

No, this is not to say that his shows are TOO educational. For they often have a kinda [Mystery Science Theatre 3000] feel to me, which makes them wildly entertaining—even without copious amounts of adult beverages and a bug zapper handy.

Evidently, I am not the only one who loves the show. For while searching high and low for some links and clips to spice this piece up a bit, I came across [ALTON BROWN AND GOOD EATS], which is a very impressive blog that I do not believe is directly affiliated with the show. I could be wrong, of course, but even if I am, it is still a very impressive blog.

By the way, new episodes of the show are broadcast at 7 PM on Mondays in my area, and repeats are generally on Monday through Friday at 10 PM. Times and temperatures may vary—depending upon where you are.

Yep, I reckon I have done enough tellin’, and now would be a good time to get to the showin’. Since it is only three more days until [Thanksgiving], the following videos on a couple of different ways to prepare a turkey might be just what you are looking for.


  1. Okay, you got me. For I have no idea what that means. Nonetheless, just because math is pretty much a mystery to me, don't think that makes me any less of a manly man. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Bee!!!

  2. I've never seen the show before. I must admit I only watched one of the videos but I after seeing it I think I may have to find out when this guy is on.

  3. If you get the Food Network, you can see the show at probably an hour later than the times I mentioned in the text. For you are in the Eastern Timezone, and I am Central. I think you will enjoy it. For his shows are usually a hoot--even if you are not all that much into cooking whatever it is he is featuring. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!!

  4. wow, nice videos, i stay for a while for watching your videos

  5. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Beauty!!! I hope you enjoy them.
