Deb @ Smitten Kitchen linked to this one today. Do you love or hate Wedge Salads? I'm occasionally on the love train, as long as they are made with great ingredients. A good one is very good, but a bad one is very, very bad. 

 

The author pokes some fun at her dad's taste, not just at his love for this 'vegetal doorstop.'   🙂

I also loved reading the dad’s reply.

Go, Dad!!!!!

Hey, Sydney was the 165th most popular name for female newborns in the US for 2018, ahead of old reliables like Diana, Rachel, Amy, Rebecca, and Nicole.

Popularity has never been an indicator of taste. And 165th?

Seen on a coffee mug (that makes it food/beverage related, right?) in an otherwise nondescript display of Father's Day merchandise:

This article isn't explicitly intended to be humorous, I suppose, but I can't help finding the very idea of Kool-Aid collectors tremendously funny. My apologies if anyone here adheres to the sect.

"Prolonged exposure to a stranger’s kitchen otherwise happens only on holiday, where it joins a constellation of stressors, including other people, and having been drunk since lunchtime. So that’s something to look forward to this summer."  That was hilarious.  And true at the same time.

As I can currently attest, moving creates a similar scenario in one's own kitchen (for at least a few weeks, until everything settles out).

I have a least found my grater, and bought Saltines, so I can make the girls zucchini fritters tonight.

In grad school (SUNY Albany) a friend, David Wemple, used to meet me each morning as I was making the coffee in the lounge and say
