It has been a stick-close-to-home kind of weekend. Mom is in town for a visit. We made Blue Cheese and Honey Crostinis yesterday but mostly we have been glued to the TV watching Hurricane Irene’s progress up the east coast. We were really lucky here on our little section of the coast. Irene stayed far out to sea leaving us with only a little wind and rain. I fear that my friends, family and everyone farther up the coast won’t fair so well.
We did peal ourself away from the TV long enough to check out our own coast line after Irene passed. Mom, Little Dude and I walked on the beach and watched surf churn.
I have found a few interesting post this week that I wanted to share. I have listed them below. I hope where ever you this weekend that are you stay safe and dry and manage to escape the wrath of Hurricane Irene! Have a great weekend everyone!
Some Interesting Food Posts from This Week:Street Food in Korea and Stuff on Sticks – I am fascinated with street food from all cultures. You can find some delicious bites in the most unpretentious places. I came across this post on Matt Bites about street food in Korea. Sweet pancakes, deep fried veggies, and all kinds of food on a stick – buy me a plane ticket I want to try a bite! How to Make Ice Cream in a Bag – Ok this just sounds like fun and a dangerous thing to know if it really works! I found it on The Foodie List which is a UK food site. I haven’t tried it yet, but I intend to give it a go! Ham and Egg Breakfast Cups – These little breakfast dishes look perfect for a hectic back to school morning! I love the idea a of a hot protein breakfast to get everyone going! Did I mention my own Little Pumpkin is starting preschool next week? I am really not ready for this! Crunchy Peanut Chocolate Chip Muffins – Found these little muffins on Evilshenanigans (which is just a fun little blog name isn’t?!) Can’t wait to give them a try using almond butter and a little whole grain flour. They look so tasty!
