Quickly, some food news:
On a whim, I searched for a grocery list tool that I could use to computerize grocery list making. I found one that's an add-on for Firefox. I'm testing it out here at Chez Flake—today when Firefox locked up I lost the entire list, but other than that it seems reasonable. If you have another grocery list tool that works for you, let me know.
And here's another scary pizza.
Foodie also has the scoop on plastic wine bottles.
But you probably shouldn't be drinking a glass of wine every day anyway.
Or diet soda.
Ever wonder how the famous vegan caterer Tofu got started? Albion Cooks interviews the proprietor of What The Hell Does A Vegan Eat Anyway? That's where you should go if you're wondering what the hell a vegan eats.
Anyway, Urban Vegan shows us how simple the vegan lifestyle really is. She totally rips off Mark Bittman's NYTimes piece on summer eating with "summer express :: 101 simple vegan meals ready in 10 minutes or less". Cool.
I think I was ranting once about how they (you know, "they") should come up with easier ways for those of us with brown thumbs to grow our own. Well, looks like they have.
Foodie sent me this news too, which is sort of food-related: Apparently some researchers have determined that "vegans shun sex with
carnivores". First of all, vegans refer to meat eaters more accurately
as omnivores, so I'm not sure where the researcher got her terminology.
(Although I like her term "vegansexuals". Makes us sound exotic.) And
secondly, if vegans really are avoiding relationships with omnivores,
it's probably because the pool of vegans has become much larger. (Just imagine a pool of vegansexuals!)
See? I told you. Food news is hot in summertime.
