Have Not Hell, but Its a Dandy!

As we say goodbye to the latest evicted house-guest Jeremy, we here at SlopDuJour are happy to say goodbye to the only holder of the never-not pass.

It is a big week in the Big Brother 15 house, and with this weeks “twist” (America’s MVP nomination) the house has been full of accusations, speculations, a bit of deep thought and the really wild idea that Elissa nominated herself for eviction.  Most of all,  paranoia galore!  There is something about being in that house that seems to make a logical person throw away all centered thought and think everyone is coming after you.  The house guests have been taking guesses about what the twist could be, and really Andy and Spencer have both described exactly what it is, however everyone else poo-poo’s it as if it were the furthest from possibility.  Ah the Big Brother house, finally feeling a bit more like previous seasons.

The have nots this week were picked in a “All you can eat” Fro-Yo competition shown on Sunday’s show, and a sigh of disbelief came over Jessie, Andy, Spencer and Candice who lost the competition and are now all being subjected once again to the have not beds, cold showers, America’s choice foods and the dreaded Big Brother Slop!

America is being pretty kind in their voting, and Big Brother gave the have-not’s macaroni and mangoes to add to the list of things they have to fill there empty bellies.  Many types of Mango including, fresh, dried and even fruit roll ups were given to break up the hardship of being a have not.

Amanda and Elissa have really been the only people attempting to get creative with their fare and they are not even have nots this week!  But kindness to others can be key in this game of strategy, so they have continued to make the Have Not Muffins from the chocolate protein powder they are allowed, and Slop Balls ( a concoction of slop bound with BBQ sauce, Guacamole or Salsa) which Helen made back in week one.

Amanda attempted to make fettuccine alfredo in a have and have not version for the house last night.  Cheese being a key ingredient in alfredo sauce, the have not batch was more of a thickened milk sauce, which did not get very thick, but Jesse did say was tasty.  The Have variety also brought some yum to the house, but if she had followed some cooking tips from SlopDuJour she would have been much happier with the result.  Here is a recipe for a simple alfredo sauce that you can try at home!

Big Brother Summer of Slop

havenotroombb15

A first look at the Big Brother 15 Have / Have Not room

Another exciting season of Big Brother has begun, and without delay the house-guests are facing their first week on slop.  What is slop, you ask?  Slop is a food substitute given to the house-guests who do not win the Have/Have Not competition each week.  It is somewhat of an oatmeal like powdered protein product that house-guests have described as “metal protein powder”.

America’s vote has in past seasons offered two food items that have not’s are allowed to eat along with the slop however, we have not seen any America’s Choice as of today.  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 will attempt to bring you news and happenings about “What’s cooking in the BB House”, bring you some of the recipes of the HG’s attempts to make things with slop, along with news of all the regular things happening in the house and in the game.  We’ll do some fun photos and some mash-up’s and screen-caps where I can!
