Macho meals - food for the virile
By Ian Laughead and Sir staff
We here at Sir magazine like food.
And these cow-less tacos are no exception. Have a smartphone? Take this recipe on the go to the store, a buddy’s place or wherever you like. Look for this meal for the virile and even more easy dishes in our debut issue hitting stands in a couple weeks.
Here’s what you need:
4 veggie burgers, chopped up
1 can refried beans
1 tomato, diced
1/2 a whole onion, diced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 packet taco seasoning
Cilantro or spinach (if you want to get really healthy and get your iron on)
Guac – buy it at the store or make your own (again, Google it)
1 jar salsa, extra spicy.
A trusty bottle of Tabasco, just in case
- Heat your oil up in a skillet, throwing in your chopped veggie burger when it’s hot.
- Stir around, and when the burger feels less frozen, slop in refried beans, some diced onion, and taco seasoning. Cook your beany, beefy mix thoroughly.
- If you’re going all out, you can warm up your tortillas in a skillet, too, or right on the stove
- Fill ‘er up with diced tomato, onion, Tabasco and either cilantro, spinach or lettuce.
- Eat with your hands.
*Serves one hungry guy, two if eaten with a side of chips.
*Add a round of Tequila shots and make us proud.
From Italy, with (some crazy stories about how Italian dudes are weird)
Men, listen up! Don’t be a creep, and especially don’t be an Italian creep in a pink turtleneck. If you must creep, at least lose the pink turtleneck. From our blogger in Italy to your frozen pizza and lasagna in the freezer, read up on how to impress a woman who is not your “cousin,” pour yourself a glass of wine (it’s okay, now, as long as it’s legal, of course) and enjoy.

OK, so you know how you’re not supposed to look an angry dog in the eye because they will supposedly attack? The same holds true for Italian men. Seriously, these guys are a different breed.
Five Tips To Looking Your Best
@Bérénice Bejo Esquire Magazine February 2012.
The Oscars are Sunday. Do we care? Not really, but we’ll probably watch them with our girlfriend (or alone … yeah, probably alone) and comment on how that Bérénice Bejo was the best damn thing about that silent movie. And that dog. It’s called “The Artist,” and no, it probably won’t be coming to Ames. So we saw the trailer, who cares?
We have one more thing to say about this: Thanks, Esquire. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. We’re going to go paint something now. In the bathroom.
By Tony Thonesavanh and Sir staff
There’s a point in every man’s life when he realizes a T-shirt and sweatpants won’t suffice (dates, interviews, interviews that turn into dates, etc.).
Ryan is a sophomore in mechanical engineering and is what the shallow might call ‘fashionably challenged’ (and our staff, because we could not think of any other words to use). His typical outfit consists of a New York Yankees T-shirt, sweatpants and a pair of Nikes. Sir fully endorses this style choice if it’s not anywhere other than a night hanging out with the guys, but sometimes it takes more effort to show off your personality and look your best. His style needed an upgrade so our own Tony Thonesavanh decided to
force lend his friend some Sir style advice.
Kate Upton just made us get it up.
