The have-nots have sure been eating lots and lots of grapefruits and guacamole this week in the Big Brother house. Amanda, McCrae, Jessie and Judd have been suffering through on the same slop dishes and sure did not seem to have the energy to get creative with new dishes this week and someone threw away all the slop Amanda made and had stored in the refrigerator!
I myself have even found it difficult to come up with any amazing ideas with this week’s America’s choice foods (common America, I need something to work with here!) so this week I came up with some beverages (Amanda was complaining about nothing to drink for have-nots) that can be created with just have-not items. The house guests were wishing for a soda machine (the machine that can make pop from flavored water) as a luxury! Maybe a hint of something to come!
Hot Vanilla Cocktail
- 14 oz milk
- 6 Tbsp. powdered creamer
- 1 Tsp. ground vanilla bean or Vanilla Extract
- 5 Tbsp. sugar or equivalent sugar substitute
- Ground cinnamon to Taste
In a heavy saucepan, combine the ingredients and warm over low heat. When small bubbles appear around the sides of the pan, remove it from the heat and let the mixture sit at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes. Place the pan back on the stove and rewarm the mixture, whisking it briefly to redistribute the skin that forms on the milk’s surface. Pour the vanilla milk into two 8-ounce mugs and top with a sprinkling of cinnamon. Drink hot.
- 2 cups ruby-red grapefruit juice (squeezed from 2 grapefruits)
- 2 to 4 tablespoons honey
- 1 cinnamon stick
In a medium pot, combine juice, honey, cinnamon and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil over high heat; strain and discard solids. Serve with a grapefruit segment or strip of zest.
These drinks would certainly bring calories, and some filler for empty have not stomachs in the BB house! So next weeks have-nots will hopefully have something amazing that we and they can create a whole lots of amazing eats! Here is a peek into the BB house 3 or so hours before the live show.. Amanda is cooking up a HUGE portion of fried slop with Salsa for she and McCrae to eat for before the live show! Tune in!!!!
Thanks for reading SlopDuJour!
Nick Uhas Age: 28 From: New York City Occupation: Entrepreneur
Nick was evicted in a surprising (for him) and classic Big Brother blindside on Thursdays show. So as we say goodbye to Nick, his kinda sorta showmance with Gina Marie will have to be put on hold. Nick has said in post show interviews that he will have to wait until he and she can reunite, reportedly for a date to see a monster truck rally, until he knows more about where their relationship might head.
The Have not competition was shown on the Sunday night broadcast after Nick’s eviction and Gina Marie’s on air flip out because he left. Gina Marie and Nick had a kind of relationship going on in the house. At times it seem more like a stalker-mance but we will let that be decided at the end of the show by Nick and his actions towards Gina Marie.
The have-nots have been picked in the “No use crying over split milk” competition and the losing team made up of Judd, Amanda, McCrae and Jessie will have to suffer the loss and eat slop, take cold showers only, and sleep in the have not airplane room and eat the result of the America’s Choice vote. There was no reveal of the foods picked in the vote on Sunday nights show, so drum roll please! America’s choice is:
With all of the craziness in the house there has not been a ton of concentration on eating, and more on just surviving. Amanda has thought of a few things to make like Slop-A-Moley and chocolate milk pops (it seems chocolate milk has been added to the have not condiments, but in limited quantities) for the have-nots to snack on.
Stay tuned for recipes for Slop Balls, and some cool refreshing drinks that can be made with Have-Not Foods!
In the meanwhile, hurry over to http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_brother/americas-vote/ and vote on next weeks America’s Choice!
Stay Tuned to SlopDuJour and see what the HG’s are cooking in the BB house!
The cast of Big Brother 15 just before they entered the house.
There has sure been a good deal of controversy in the house this past week, and we at SlopDuJour feel that the behavior of the house guests who have been featured on the news, TMZ and on the Big Brother live feeds has been a nasty look at how people can be vicious, cruel, vile and inhumane. We do not condone or support racism or racist behaviors and attitudes and that all people should be treated with as much kindness as possible. I personally love BB and I have since season 1 and hope the persons who continue to spew racist garbage are evicted swiftly and they alone suffer the consequences of their actions at face value.
ON with the MUFFINS!
Described by the houseguest Elissa on this summers sizzling hot show Big Brother as, “The healthiest muffins you can ever eat” this summers have-nots are already getting creative and concocting their own tasty and much-needed meal plan. Have Not muffins were created earlier in the season by Amanda and have now blossomed into a full-fledged and very healthy food source for those who are doomed to suffer another week worth of Airplane seat beds, slop and america’s choice.
The Muffins don’t even have slop in them, but are made instead with the whey protein powder they are allowed to have. Here is how they are doing it!
Elissa removes the muffins from the tins.
Have Not Muffins
- 3 Scoops of Chocolate Whey Protein Powder (any flavor could be used!)
- 4-6 Tablespoons of Powdered Sugar
- 2-5 Tablespoons of Soy Milk
- 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
- 1 tablespoon of oil (may be omitted)
Mix all ingredients until batter has a wet brownie type consistency. Add whey Protein Powder if mixture is not thick enough, soy milk if it is too thick. Pour well mixed batter into buttered or lined mini or regular size muffin tins. Fill each about 3/4 the way full. Bake in oven at 350 degrees until a toothpick can be inserted and then extracted clean (approx 10-15 minutes).
Let cool slightly
- Powdered Sugar
- Soy Milk
Icing can be flavored (the first time the HG’s made this, they used cinnamon flavoring) or can be just mixed and used to frost or dip.
I made these muffins this morning and they are pretty good! An excellent source of protein and not the worst thing I have ever eaten!
Till next time… enjoy your SlopDuJour!
Amanda getting cooking in the Big Brother Kitchen
With the first week of Slop just finishing up in the house, the HG’s have been somewhat creative in what they have created week 1 with the metallic tasting protein oatmeal like product, better known to Big Brother watchers as SLOP!
The have not’s for week 1 were Elissa, Helen, Howard, Judd and Andy. These members of the red team came in last place in the BB lakeside rafting and can balancing competition held earlier in the week and shown on Sunday’s CBS Show. Life on Slop sure looks like it would be really hard unless you get super creative and its amazing with some of the dishes you can come up with!
Amanda created some slop cupcakes which were a house favorite (even the non slop eaters were eating them, to the dismay of the hungry have-nots) and got gobbled up quickly! Slop-balls, slop falafels, chocolate sodas, vanilla and chocolate souffle and even slop rock candy/brittle were made and used to feed the have-nots.
While the feeds were not on yet when these item were made (Big Brother House-guests enter the house approx. 1 week prior to the first show airing, the first LIVE show is Thursday July 3rd at 8/7 central!)
Here is a Recipe for Slop Cupcakes!!!
- 1 Cup Liquid mixed with Coffee Creamer
- 1 cup Big Brother Slop & Protein Powder
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
- In a small bowl, combine creamer mixture and Big Brother Slop mix; let soak for 15 minutes.
- In a separate bowl measure oil; stir in slop mixture.
- In a third bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir flour mixture into wet ingredients, just until combined. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups until cups are 2/3 full.
- Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
and there you have it! Give these a try in your kitchen using your own slop mixture or protein powder or heck, even oats! The liquid you choose can make an incredible flavor difference too!
Please enjoy these recipes and let me know if you try them how they come out! Feel free to make suggestions of your own too! I’d be happy to share with other Big Brother Fans! I will bring you more creative ideas after America’s Choice is announced and the house guests get cooking in the BB house!!!
