08:07 pm - RealMen™ don't eat quiche, but they make a helluva chicken parmesan
Nate really gets the raw end of the deal on my livejournal. For every ten things he does that rock, you kids hear about the one thing that bugged me.

Tonight he had his relatives over. That's his cousin from downstairs, another cousin from Melrose, that cousin's friend, and Nate's sister and her friend. Too many people I don't know, and such a high concentration of RealMan™ that Ernest Hemmingway and Jack London would have trouble making headway in the conversation.

I stayed up here in my bedroom until they had gone to his parents' house, and then I went down and had some of the chicken parmesan left over from the dinner he made. It's fantastic. Nate's a very good cook which you wouldn't guess from the kind of things he usually eats at home. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese mixed with a can of tuna used to be one of his dinner staples, but his tastes are actually pretty diverse and he's developed the kind of cooking sensibilities you can only get with a lot of practice.

He's gonna read this by the way, and that's a little embarrassing, but whatever.

I see he also made a salad with leaf lettuce. I have a head romaine in the vegetable crisper and I hope that's what he used, but that's my section of the fridge so I bet he doesn't even know it's in there. I'll have to find some other way to use that stuff up.

Not that I'm sticking up for it or anything, but what exactly do you have against quiche?

Do you want the real answer or the funny one? Too bad, you're getting the real one.

There's a book nobody remembers from the early-'80s called Real Men Don't Eat Quiche: A Guidebook to All That is Truly Masculine, which was a very funny, probably offensive book about how to be a beer-swilling, crotch-scratching, foot-balling man. Well, maybe not foot-balling, but football playing, certainly.

The author of the book is named Bruce Fierstein and he went on to write several of the recent James Bond movies which I think are crap.
