Chewdout: Dom DeLouise has just shown up at your house unexpectedly for dinner. What do you cook to impress?
Wes: Spaghetti and meatballs!
Chewdout: Of course! What was one meal you remember loving as a kid?
Wes: Spaghetti and meatballs! I loved twirling the noodles over and over again. It was elementary school, I would whip the plate into the garbage like a frisbee afterward. I would make a big mess with it.
Chewdout: You’ve got $10 at a supermarket to feed 5 people, but you can prepare the meal with only a knife, what do you make?
Wes: Mac and cheese, hotsauce and tuna fish in a bowl. Yum!
Chewdout: Gimme 3 things you can cook with an armadillo-
Wes: Armadillo but cream poppy seed bagel, armadillo and jalapeno soup cold, armadillo kbob over an open prairie fire.
