Even though it's only two episodes in, this season of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" has been full of laughs with its own brand of unusal humor.
The show, airing 9 p.m. Thursdays on FX, is in it's seventh season and follows a group of self-centered, and sometimes misguided, friends trying to run a bar. Still, there are plenty of episodes that have nothing to do with the bar.
That would include last week's episode, "The Gang Goes To The Jersey Shore." The cast took a trip to the Jersey Shore to relive childhood memories and to let Charlie (Charlie Day) see the ocean for the first time.
When they get there, the Jersey Shore is nothing like their memories, or the TV show with the same name. Instead the water is polluted and the beach is filled with stray dogs.
But that didn't stop Frank (Danny DeVito) and Mac (Rob McElhenney) from having a delicious meal on the beach. Frank combined their eating and drinking for the day in his latest creation, the rum ham. The two tear into the large, rum-soaked ham while getting a little tipsy in the process.
Eating a rum ham while surrounded by stray dogs may not seem like an ideal vacation activity, but there is a way for you to get, as Frank would say, "HAMmered" at home. The Bravo TV blog, The Dish, recently approched "Top Chef" season 6 contestant Eli Kirshtein about coming up with a recipe for the alcohol-infused meat.
Eli Kirshtein's recipe allows you to create the dish using an eight-pound ham and dark rum.
On tonight's episode of "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia," Frank accidentally gets into the child pageantry business.
