- Some polar opposite culinary reporting from The NYT lately: you can choose to read about the 11 best secretly-good-for-you foods or you can instead focus on the “Bacon explosion” (and utilize some bacon band-aids if the explosion gets to you).
- Continuing in the spirit of promoting other local foodie blogs, you can check out CNY’s own Amateur Gourmet.
- Some sad news in the greater food community: three food pioneers died recently – the inventor of the Quarter Pounder, the inventor of Spaghetti-O’s and the founder of Taco Bell.
- Lastly, I recently experienced a personal McMircale. While roadtripping from Detroit to Oklahoma City, I lost my wallet… apparently at an Illinois McDonald’s. What happened?
Yep. They returned it with everything in it. I was floored (and I vow to up my intake of Shamrock Shakes this year in honor of this unexpected kindness). As a small bit of gratitude, I sent them a little something that they’ll hopefully enjoy (via Vintage Funland on Etsy) .
