About This Episode
Today’s show is meaty, to say the least. Ever the inventor in the kitchen, Brendan finds himself (and his meatloaf) out of ketchup, and happens upon a recipe that puts a new, branded twist on this favorite. We also learn the disputed origins of the Sloppy Joe sandwich. Steve introduced Janet to so many things during their earliest years: tacos, backgammon, and eating (and spilling?) ice cream in bed. Dag’s family taco night was a smash, and included another installation of their long-running card game.
