O Nom Nom Nom A

So, what’s on the plate for our new president’s lunch? A host of game birds, hot dogs for the little ones (am I the only one who sees Biden sneaking a dog?) , and a massive sigh of relief for all that are involved, including of course the caterers:

Holiday Cross-Over

Something about this just tickles my ironic funny bone… the idea of haunted gingerbread houses! I’d be a fun thing to do at a party, and it’s easier to find massive amounts of small candy for cheap this time of year. Plus there is something sexy about the browns of gingerbread decorated with blacks and oranges.  Hit up google image search for some ideas, but I first saw haunted gingerbread mansions here.

The Kinchley’s Review

Kinchley’s Pizzeria has more rules than Ramapo’s library. You can’t split orders, you can’t use credit cards, and drinks don’t come with free refills. Yet as many people as cram into the library during finals week can be found in the tightly-packed dining room of Kinchley’s every day. So what’s their secret to success, despite all the rules? Find the answer after the dramatic-pause jump.

Weird Food Products

 

I know. You’ve all heard of it. Most’ve you have been there. Until the other night when my boyfriend and I attended a preseason Jets game, I’d never visited.

Raw Bars: The Ron Puke Revolution

At a friend’s apartment recently, we were offered to sample a new product. Someone’s aunt (the crazy hippie aunt everyone seems to have) had sent them a box of raw food bars to try out. You know it’s going to be good when someone offers you food with a disclaimer along the lines of “do you want any of this before I throw it out.” Review and modern sculpture after the jump.

On Omelets and Life

Today was a rough start for me. I woke up feeling rather stupid after having drank way more than I should’ve, and had a horrible headache. Even after chugging a Propel fitness water, I felt like poo. “Store…”, I squeaked to my boyfriend, “We have to go to the store. I need Aleve…”

Sustainabeerlity

While digging around, I found this great article on the top 5 guilt-free beer companies. Apparently two of my top favorites, Long Trail and Sierra Nevada, made the list. However, I’m wondering if Sierra Nevada is truly “guilt-free” for me, as it has to travel all the way from California to reach me in New Jersey. For me, then, Long Trail is the most eco guilt-free, except for those times in which my friends make beer, which would be by far the freshest and least travel miles possible.
