I have no need for Cinnamon Sugar Spiced Pecans, but: “Mashuga Nuts” A few lines from the packaging: “A nut your mother will love” “The chosen pecan” “Oy… Ingredients so good we had to pay retail!” “Delivered by Schlemiels on Wheels” (I love that my phone knew to autocomplete Schlemiel) “Novato, CA 94949 What… You [..]
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Nando’s: Last dictator standing
RC2 is making me laugh: Wheat & Weeds – At Random Come for the Neiman Marcus joke. Stay for the exercise punch line.
I actually saw this yesterday but I’ve woken up with random bits of it stuck in my head, making me laugh: Whole Foods Parking Lot
This has been described in my Twitter as a blog about “old-fashioned WI cakes”: THE VINTAGE CAKE SPOT PS: I’m still going through the dozens of Twitter items I set aside from the weekend and the hundreds of unread items in the “Read First” (hah!) folder of my Google Reader. Baby steps!
Cream tea wars: Does British food need protecting? Cornish pasties! Cumberland sausages! Clotted cream on scones with tea, oh my!
Yesterday was the barbecue. Today I’m spending studying to get my dang California drivers license back tomorrow. TEN YEARS I held on to that dang thing as I bounced around the country. JUST TWO YEARS AGO I finally gave in and got a Washington license. Tch. And digging a hole. I hope to spend some [..]
So cool: The History Blog – Shackleton’s whisky lives again and it’s delicious Last summer, researchers from the Canterbury Museum in Christchurch, New Zealand thawed a crate of whisky found frozen solid under the floorboards of explorer Ernest Shackleton’s hut on Ross Island, Antarctica, in 2006.

Honestly, the world is coming apart at the seams, but — presumably because I feel so fatalistic about it all (we had a chance to win this shiz and blew it, imho) — I just can’t be bothered (I’m also getting my ass kicked by either a cold or allergies). And I don’t even have [..]
I’ve had this open for an age so I’ll finally link to it now: The Economist – Time, gentlemen An elegy on the British pub, by our obituaries editor The church can go, long since the preserve of a flower-arranging few; the local shop can go, since the distant hypermarket’s cheapness is worth the petrol; [..]
Industrial kitchens are CRAZY. Vincent Talleu: Croissants I’ve made croissants before (it turned out well but was definitely one of those things that, having done it, I’m happy to let others do it for me) and he’s actually doing it right. These ain’t no (or shouldn’t be no) limp supermarket pastries.
Brief note: I love the Sunday Times iPad app. Honestly, everybody should subscribe to the paywall (it’s not that hard paying, oh children of the interweb), buy an iPad (I mean you should all have one of these anyway; just ask Half) download each edition of the Sunday Times free with your paywall subscription and [..]
I really, really want to eat at a Chinese restaurant on Christmas day some time, just to see what it’s really like. Does that make me a bad Catholic? A tourist of American Judaism? Or maybe I’m just not that keen on Turkey and Ham and am subconsciously latching onto a segment of the population [..]
