It’s Brad’s final episode, as he prepares for his switch to the sports department, but Derek isn’t sad – well, maybe a little.
Food editor Ginna Parsons (6:47) even brings him a peanut butter and chocolate pie as she stops by to talk about this week’s food section.
Ginna talks about The Twisted Burger, a popular Columbus eatery that will soon reopen in West Point – where it first started. Owner J.T. Hurst had no restaurant experience before he first opened the business, but it quickly became a hit. Popular burgers include the Godzilla, the Rooster and the Fat Elvis.
Ginna also talks about Cook of the Week Star Ray, who likes to make party food. Ray especially likes dishes that can be prepared in advance, like cheese balls, hors d’oeuvres, pimento cheese and cookies. She also makes a tomato pie with a crust on both the top and bottom.
And Ginna talks about a recipe for avocado chicken salad that includes corn, bacon, scallions and a light lemon dressing. Plus, she still needs your best tailgating recipes for a future story.
M. Scott Morris (19:03) reviews “The Nut Job 2,” a movie he said aimed for hilarity but hit dullness.
Derek (30:53) has the highlights of the entertainment scene. The “Discover the Dinosaurs” exhibit is coming to the Tupelo Furniture Market this weekend. Meanwhile, Tupelo Community Theatre will open its season next weekend with a performance of “The Robber Bridegroom.”
