Liz Lemon - but I made a note to try it one day.
Last night, Elizabeth and her sister were taking their mom to see Newsies, a belated Mother's Day present. So I was contemplating what to do. The Angels were playing the Dodgers for the first time this season, which means I would be staying home and watching the game. (As I've written every year of this blog on such an occasion, the opportunity to hear Vin Scully call an Angels game is not one I would ever pass up.)
I decided to make the Onion-tended Consequences Burger. I don't make fictional foods nearly enough. (I could see this becoming one of those things with which I get carried away, so I decided to do it when I was dining solo.) On the show, Bob only mentions three ingredients: caramelized onion ("First you have to caramelize the onions, and no, I don't mean add caramel"), thyme, and goat cheese. He certainly gives the impression that those are the only three ingredients, but never says so specifically. So I figured I had some leeway. This is what I mean about getting carried away. Whatever. Here's what I did:
"Do you want the large or the small?" the woman behind the counter asked me.
"Okay, that'll be 45 cents."
This blew me away. I don't remember the last time anything cost only 45 cents.
(It turned out both of these things were completely unnecessary. They were not bad by any means, but the recipe described on Bob's Burgers was fine the way it was.)
But is that really necessary?
