Once again, I’m totally addicted to CBS show Big Brother. This is the 13th season that house guests have been hand-picked, and brought to a sound stage to live out the summer as part of a contest of which the grand prize is $500,000 dollars. The house guests are subjected to food competitions and each week the loosing teams are subject to sleeping only in the padded room which has lights lit 24 hours a day, cold showers in the have not section of the shower, as well as the loss of normal eating privileges for the week. A vote by the viewers of big brother yields a pair of foods that the house guests who do not win the weeks competition are able to consume along with the provided “slop”. This slop is a powdered protein mix that has a reputation for clogging ones system, and has been described as having a taste a bit like metal.
Along with this slop mixture and the two voter items the have not’s may also consume condiments from a list provided by big brother.
Here is the list:
balsamic vinegar, olive oil, red wine vinegar, rice vinegar, vegetable oil, hot sauce, ketchup, BBQ sauce, mayonnaise, mustard, pickles, relish, salsa, soy sauce, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, black pepper, garlic salt, crushed red pepper, salt, vanilla, basil, bay leaves, cinnamon, leaf oregano, paprika, parsley, rosemary, brown sugar, artificial sweetener, powdered creamers, white sugar, tea and protein powder.
I was watching the live feeds, and the house guest Adam came up with an idea of making something he had seen at a Hooters restaurant called Frickles (deep-fried pickle chips). I thought it was a great idea, and I wanted to see what recipes I might come up with if I were a Big Brother house guest and made to suffer as a have not and eat slop!
First Entry Coming Soon!
