Man Stiffs Waitress Over Sour Cream, Cousin Finds Out And Publicly Shames Him

Sour-Cream-Shame

Sure, when a restaurant runs out of an item you look forward to it can ruin the dining experience. The only thing you can do is make the most of it and move on. However, if you’re a recent customer at Joe’s Crab Shack, you can take it to a petty place.

Take this one guy for example.

When he discovered that the restaurant had run out of sour cream, he stiffed the waitress on a $71 check. To add insult to injury, he wrote “Find Sour Cream” on the line for tip.

Dustin Clark, cousin to the sour cream-shaming customer, saw the photo of the receipt posted online. Clark then drove to the Oklahoma Crab Shack and gave the waitress $20 and apologized for his cousin.

He then posted the experience on Facebook as well:

Clearly, Clark didn’t think something so trivial as missing sour cream was warrant enough to stiff a waitress as well leave a rude comment.

Del Taco Delivers Carne Asada and Fry-Stuffed Epic California Burritos

del-taco-cali-burrito

Late last year, GQ described the California Burrito as “one of the most elegantly decadent foods you’ve never heard of.” A hefty, Chipotle-sized tank crammed with some arrangement of steak, cheese, pico, sour cream, guacamole, and, the clincher, golden crispy french fries, California Burritos are the leading cause of failed diets in the Golden State. It’s scientific fact.

They also happen to be a perfect addition to Del Taco’s Epic Burrito line. For a limited time, the new Cali Steak & Guac combines all the aforementioned ingredients within one massive 18-ounce wrap, descriptively named for anyone who hasn’t been blessed enough to try a real California burrito in person.

We decided to sample the beast ourselves for breakfast this morning, and while not nearly as artery-clogging as we might have liked, the Cali Steak & Guac should be perfectly palatable for anyone just looking to dip their feet in the waters of guacamole and french fry-loaded degeneracy. It’s also available with a free medium drink, along with the rest of the Epic line, through Wednesday June 18.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake for a Cold Day

Few things make a house feel warm and “homey” like the sweet smell of cinnamon goods baking away in the oven. And I guarantee this will warm your home (and heart) right up – Filled and topped with cinnamon-sugar goodness this coffee cake is a sure-fire home run. Keep this recipe on hand for your next brunch, and your guests won’t be disappointed!

The last time I purchased sour cream, they were out of the small containers so I was forced to buy a large one. Now, in a house of two people, where only one of us eats sour cream, and there are clearly a limited number of options for items that are complemented by sour cream (tacos… and um… tacos?).

Since I hate letting things go to waste, I was trying to think of something to do with the rest of this sour cream… what could I make? Then it hit me – SOUR CREAM COFFEE CAKE.

The sour cream in this cake gives it a subtle flavor boost and added moisture to an item that tends to be overly dry in bakeries and coffee shops nationwide. I decided to use the King Arthur Flour recipe since it has the key thing I look for in any  recipe – simplicity.

I was a little weirded out by their “streusel” recipe- it was the first time I’d ever seen a streusel recipe that didn’t call for butter. I went for it anyway though, adding just a touch of brown sugar for extra flavor and texture. The cake recipe itself was very forgiving, delivering a delightfully tender coffee cake despite an oven mishap :-)

Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake 

For Streusel:

  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 Tb brown sugar

For Cake:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temp
  • 2 C AP flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 C sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 C sour cream (I used light)

*Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Make the topping: Combine topping ingredients, stir and set aside.

Make the cake:

1. Spray pan with baking spray (I used an 8×8, a 9×9 would work as well, or an 8 or 9-inch round pan), set aside.

2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together butter & sugar, add eggs and beat until smooth.

4. Add the flour mixture alternating with the sour cream, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Spread half of the batter into the prepared baking pan, and sprinkle with half of the topping. Repeat with remaining batter and topping.

5. Bake until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 35 min (depending on size of pan). Cool on wire rack.
