The Lean Cuisini
Moe: Okay, now let’s say I put a lean cuisine in a blender and I pour some beer on it. What do you call that?

Lean Cuisine is considered a “healthy” frozen dinner and is targeted toward women. It’s essentially the opposite of Hungry Man, whose slogan “eat like a man” is actually pretty close to this blogs slogan. I think the major difference between eating like a duck and eating like a man (besides the obvious variance in chewing styles) is that eating like man involves a lot of meat and potatoes. While ducks apparently eat food blended with beer and drink the Lean Cuisini. Or at least this duck does.
- Lean Cuisine (any variety will do)
- Beer (any brand will do)
Put lean cuisine in a blender and pour some beer on it.
Liquefy until the mixture is as smooth as possible. Serve immediately.
I realized too late that I served the Lean Cuisini in a tumbler glass when it really should have gone into a martini glass – so don’t bother pointing that out. Was I going to make this monstrosity again? Not a chance in hell. What does a Lean Cuisini taste like? Like blended up food chunks with beer mixed in – a thoroughly unpleasant experience that ranks right up there with the Clove Tom Collins Pie. Do not make this.
