My new favorite

FAST FOOD DOESN’T GET FASTER THAN THIS SHIT. You can eat these sons of bitches raw. Sometimes I like them hot so I toss em on the grill. Use some of that bomb-ass peanut sauce too. Look, just because french fries come from a vegetable don’t front like that shit counts as your veggies for the day. Yeah, I’m already in your fucking head.GRILLED SUGAR SNAP PEAS WITH PEANUT DIPPING SAUCE1 pound sugar snap peas1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil1 teaspoon lime juice8-10 wood or bamboo skewersPEANUT DIPPING SAUCE1/3 cup natural peanut butter (nothing full of sugar or a shit ton of salt)1/3 cup warm water1 clove of garlic, minced1 ½ teaspoons grated or minced ginger2 tablespoons rice vinegar2 teaspoons lime juice2 teaspoons agave or honey1 ½ teaspoons soy sauceMix together the peanut butter and warm water in a glass until it is smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients for sauce and keep fucking mixing until it is all uniform. Taste and adjust the seasoning so that you like it. Add more agave if you like stuff sweet, more garlic, whatever you like. That shit is on you.Cut the ends off your sugar snap peas because those can be stringy.  Run a skewer through the peas widthwise, with about 9 peas per stick. Mix together the oil and lime juice in a small glass and brush it over both sides of the peas so that they don’t stick when you grill them, otherwise your just wasting everybody’s goddamn time.Bring your grill to a high heat and place the skewers on there for a minute or so on each side. You don’t need to cook them, you just want some char marks on there because that looks fucking legit. Slide the peas off the skewers and sprinkle them lightly with salt. Serve with peanut dipping sauce. Too lazy to cook them? Just serve them shits raw.  We whipped this dish up exclusively for our homies over at Frank151.

Sorry for the profanity, but PLEASE tell me you’ve heard of Thug Kitchen: Eat like you give a fuck?

One of the blogs I read is, like, a minimag of food related genius entitled Food Riot (their sister site, Book Riot, is also the tops for all you literary types out there) and I was getting caught up on some back log today and ran across a link to this AMAZING site.

Forewarning: grown-up language (clearly). If this bothers you…definitely not the site for you. But ANYWAY, Thug Kitchen prides itself on being a kind of anti-foodie blog blog, and they believe that

EVERYONE DESERVES TO FEEL A PART OF OUR COUNTRY’S PUSH TOWARD A HEALTHIER DIET, NOT JUST PEOPLE WITH DISPOSABLE INCOMES WHO SPEAK A CERTAIN WAY.

Sorry about the all caps. That’s a Thug Kitchen thing.

The site isn’t necessarily that old (there isn’t a HUGE back catalog of posts or anything) but it is DEFINITELY refreshing to see a blog talking about seasonal, delicious whole food in a way that is irreverent, hilarious, and easily relateable. Mark couldn’t stop cracking up when he was reading over my shoulder, and the blog went immediately into my top feeds! Trust me: click over. You’ll be glad you did.
