- A Rarer Borealis
takes her cute little vegetarian self out of NYC and into the Iowa State Fair and shares with us her food findings
. Included are fried goods, various jerkies, foods on sticks ... and strange combinations of the three. It shines a light onto the unknown traditions of the Midwest through their food. Also included is a vintage MST3K video. Nerds rejoice!
- I Am Beer Wise
gives us the rundown on the collaboration between One Village Coffee and Victory Brewing to create Victory Village Ale
at a Plymouth Meeting Whole Foods
. Coffee and beer are a tasty combo in my book, and IABW gives a much more thorough and helpful description, along with where you can find the brew. I'm still kind of stuck on the fact that Whole Foods in the 'burbs have pubs attached to them. Yo Philly let's get on that, hmm?
are not normally in my realm of tasty things. I usually equate them with old-timey cocktails or fancy fops stuck in the Victorian era. But Burning Pasta
makes a great pro-bitters argument, explaining how it's not my personal fault, but my age's, that I'm uninterested. He also shares a recipe on how to make your own bitters at home,
and includes his own cocktail featuring peaches.
- In perfect timing for the impending fall season, Mac and Cheese
shares her love of, and a recipe for, squash casserole.
It is a southern food staple, and though I've never made it, her photos and unabashed love for it are contagious. I'd like to try to impress some veg friends by whipping this up in the near future.
- Psssst ... hey MoMa
... I know you guys are really cool and cutting-edge and I love your museum/exhibits/lectures/store, and it sort of kills me to say this, but apparently no one told you this "Banana Bunker" is err... extremely phallic.
And kind of totally unnecessary. Fifteen-year-old me is giggling super-duper hard right now. LOL, I wrote "hard."
- HBO has a show called Hard Knocks
about NFL training camp. In this clip, you get to see NY Jets coach Rex Ryan truly inspire
his team, and then end his pearls of wisdom in a manner Meal Ticket truly appreciates. PLEASE NOTE
Coach's language in the video is quite colorful (very NSFW).
