Today I opened a fresh bag of organic washed salad greens, added tomatoes and what not, dressed it, and discovered after a fork or two that there was also shredded thickish plastic in there.  Thicker than the thin plastic bag of the salad.

First time in awhile I've found something gross in my food.

(I know I shouldn't buy washed salad but there haven't been any scares around these parts. And when I buy a head of lettuce I rarely finish it and it takes up a lot of space.)

That bagged salad is very convenient, but I do not buy it. Mainly because I'm scared of getting _______ (enter food borne illness of your choice).

But yeah, plastic in there doesn't surprise me.

We've had cronuts in Filthy for some time, but only one bakery I can think of downtown. Now my favorite place which is in my vicinity has begun making them. I'd been boycotting this trend because it was annoying, like twerking for foodies, but I may give in next visit and try one. Looks too large for me so I may need to force a friend to go with me.

Do you have a calendar for these proclamations? If so, it would be helpful to prepare. I got beanies and weenies but no corn bread. :(

Cajun cornbread in a cast iron skillet is the absolute best, but I would rather drink a human toe than eat Beanie Weenies:

Yes, I use an iron skillet and an ancient one from my grandmother's tobacco farm at that. And I must say that the addition of mushrooms from the farmers' market to the beans was a lovely idea.

I guess it's not a "national B&W&CB" day.

http://www.scottrobertsweb.com/Complete-Listing-of-National-Food-Days

September 9 - National Steak au Poivre Day

O.M.G.... I'm like *so* there. I was a regular at Les Deux Gamins on Sheridan Square back in the 90's! Long since shuttered however. There's a place in Center City here that does $25 all you can eat steak frites (with choice of Bearnaise, Bordelaise, or Sauce Au Poivre Vert) and the fries are made in duck fat. Deal don't you think?

AND IT'S NOT A LAME CHAIN!

C'mon up Wumpella, you'd love it!

THERE IS NO FLOUR IN CORNBREAD! (at least not according to the Joy of Cooking) even my 1 tbsp. of sugar is optional.

And child please, if you don't use buttermilk it isn't worth bothering. Damn rednecks.

Also, my corn meal is stone-ground, not like regular commercial corn meal which uses metal rollers. u jelly?

This is an important study. Now I can go all out for my health and get the Semi Bottomless Mimosas at my fave post church brunch spot

Well be careful. Im pretty sure they studied ONLY champagne, so it might be really only champagne, or maybe all  mťthode champenoise wine. 
That would be champagne, cremant, cava, and franciacorta, and other bubblies that specifically state methode champenoise.

I'm perfectly happy if some bar or restaurant does a mimosa with champagne but most don't, and it can be considered a waste of a good bottle of wine.  Bellini used Prosecco and it might be considered pretentious to make one with champagne.  Cremant and Cavas are about as cheap as Prosecco so perhaps thats the solution.

Move over Chia Seeds...Hemp Hearts have arrived!



So I went to Whole Foods to get me some Peru Mineola Tangelos and a lady had her hemp table set up there and had me try some of these Hemp hearts. They are amazingly good! They taste a bit like sunflower seeds, but very soft. You sprinkle them on salads, in yogurts, on popcorn, or right out of the packet.

Anyways, the lady said they would change my life, so I am waiting patiently for the transformation.

Don't tell me all you got at Whole Foods were a lousy bag of overpriced seeds.

I went to the upper middle class grocery store the other day. It was just convenient for where I was. Usually I go to the middle middle class ones or the discount ones. (There are luxury ones, as well of course. The kind you can only see in Switzerland and Japan and some major cities around the world.  You know a cantalope at 10 bucks that sort of thing.)

Anyhoo, for some reason (amazing weather this summer in Europe? bountiful harvests?) a good chunk of the organic produce was about the same price as the regular stuff, and it all looked succulent.  (Sometimes the organic stuff can look a bit old or withered.) 

Moreover, the produce was priced the same as the middle class grocer, or cheaper.

Maybe because its not a big chain, it could adjust prices faster because of the abundant supply?

Its really frustrating when the "Whole Foods" market is just too overpriced...

I hope the situation is changing fast now as more and more whole foods becomes available and more and more people want to buy it.

This is true. But here you can only find the good fruits at Whole Foods or Central Market. The fruits in the "regular" stores are at best mediocre. I'm willing to pay 2.99 a pound for some decent oranges, it's a guilty pleasure for me  :)

I had to go into the city yesterday for my blood to be drawn.  Of course, I got lost so I ended up getting there while they were closed for lunch.  Yes, I know how to get there, but a detour messed me up and I ended up on the interstate heading the wrong direction.

Since I had almost an hour to kill, decided to find something to eat.  Found a former Taco Bell (I think) that was transformed by the new owners into an authentic Mexican fast food restaurant.  It was neat, as it had a Subway store type setup.  You walk towards the register indicating your preferences.

I settled on a vegetarian burrito.  Rice, black beans...etc   Quite different than Americanized Mexican restaurants.  This next part made even the manager laugh.  The youngish employee asked me if I preferred chicken or beef on my vegetarian burrito.  I indicated that either was fine as long as it was the meatless variety.  She asked the manager if they had that.
