Deep Dish, Twisted Food History! – Episode 10: Off Topic! Weird Anniversary Gift Traditions, The Hamptons, Audio Issues!

In this off-week edition of Deep Dish, we discuss our Labor Day weekend, which included our very first wedding anniversary! We also play another round of Shitty Old Recipes! 

Highlights include…

  • We discuss our Labor Day weekend, briefly going over what “The Hamptons” actually means.  How many Hamptons are there? Are they actually ritzy?
  • Speaking of ritzy, we take some time looking over the list of traditional wedding anniversary gifts, and some of them are a bit, uh, abstract. (How does one give “fire” as a gift?)
  • Despite some audio problems, we delve into perhaps the nastiest meal we’ve done yet, in Shitty Old Recipes! Hint: Combine fruity Jello with things that should NEVER be combined with fruity Jello)
