Steph’s worst nightmare

My roommate Liz and I were just discussing my complicated issues with red velvet cake. And then Facebook revealed this to her. If you want me to come to your wedding, I’m going to have to ask that you don’t have one of these:

Drink up

If you really love True Blood (like I do) and you want to drink some bloodlike stuff while you watch, you’re in luck!  They are going to make it a real (not actually blood) beverage – the NYT says so.  Sort of gross right?  But how fun would it be to have a True Blood party and drink that stuff and then bite people.  FUNSIES!

ps. free coffee today in park slope

Cafe Grumpy, the beloved coffee shop below my apartment is opening a new store today in Park Slope at 7th Ave between 11th and 12th streets. If you visit today you can get a free drink or something. Also they are running a nifty promotion where if you buy a bag of coffee or finish your drink punch card, you can enter to win a drawing for a free espresso machine.

Thanks Grumpy!

Support the Papacitos

So one of my most favoritest restaurants in my neighborhood is Papacitos. It’s an amazing Mexican joint with many veggie and vegan options, awesome fish tacos, and cute delivery boys. They also have an amazing outdoor patio and right now it’s byob because they somehow lost their liquor license. Anyways, recently Gothamist reported that they got their shit fucked up and robbed of $10k and their sound system (see below).

After Black Betty’s and several other restaurants/favorite bakeries going out recently, I am going to do whatever I can to support Papacitos and keep it from going under as well. I was there this afternoon for a quick brunch and it was a little sad without the classic rock they usually pump through the place but my breakfast burrito was A+. I strongly urge everyone to eat there because the food is excellent (the chef used to work at Brooklyn Label), the patio is beautiful, and i don’t want to see another one of my favorite restaurants go out of business this year. sad face (i hate emoticons).

Donuts destroy sewer system

In case you didn’t know already, donuts can do harm.

“The suit details problems with the plant dating as far back as 2004, describing a sewer facility permeated by the smell of doughnuts, pipes clogged with corrosive slime and the resulting raw sewage leaks that eventually shut down the southern Fairfax sewer system.

At one point, public works officials ran a closed-circuit camera along a pipe to show the grease deposits, only to get the camera stuck in the buildup.”

Oh dear.

vote for the White House Farmer



Let me recommend one of the 2 Indiana farmers in the race. As a Hoosier, I can tell you that Indiana folk know how to farm. Crop rotation is the first thing we learn in grade school. No joke. Soy beans, corn, soy beans, corn, etc. But seriously, vote for Terry Himelick of Victory Acres. nuff said.

exhibit opening at City Reliquary!


The show will feature documents and artifacts from the 1930s, when immigrant Meyer Parodneck and a handful of anti-poverty activists founded the Consumer-Farmer Milk Cooperative to ensure farmers received a fair price, and consumers paid a fair price, for milk. The Co-op played a pivotal role opening the market controlled by milk distribution giants. With their own processing plants and distribution stations, the Consumer-Farmer Co-op sold milk to consumers at the lowest possible price, and paid farmers the highest possible return, for nearly fifty years. Overcoming a mountain of obstacles, this organization made a difference to hundreds of struggling farmers and to the children of low-income New Yorkers.

The exhibition includes period Co-op newsletters and advertising campaigns, vintage paper milk containers, and cooperative movement propaganda. Pivotal moments in the Co-op’s story are illustrated with miniature dioramas.

The reception is free and open to the public with refreshments courtesy of Peanut Butter Company (locally produced and salmonella free!).

RIP Sparks

Say it’s not so.. Sparks is no more.  I guess we should also say RIP Drunk Nora Doing Marching Band Dance, and RIP Sparks Challenge Becko.    Should we re-create Sparks challenge one last time? (6 Sparks in an hour)  Guess not..

The Illinois attorney general says ““These drinks are extremely dangerous in the hands of young people.  They contain substantially more caffeine than coffee or soda and are marketed as a way to ‘power’ your nights by staying awake and drinking more alcohol. This is a completely inappropriate message to send to younger audiences.”

David Sedaris on Undecided Voters

“I look at these people and can’t quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it? To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.”

Crispy Clean Bacon Broiler

Want crispy bacon?  YES

However, this bacon doesn’t look crispy when she takes it out of the bacon machine.  It looks a little flopsy to me, and I don’t like flopsy bacon.  I don’t have a dishwasher, so I’m not really sold.  I’m also against any kitchen utensil that has only one purpose.  So, I guess the verdict on this is a no on this, but thought I’d share anyway.

My friend Max moved to Poland a couple months ago. He sent this to all his friends back in DC.

Greetings from Poland. Life is great, I miss you all, blah, blah, blah.

I really miss Taco Bell. I just want to stuff my face with Nachos Bell Grande and a Chalupa right now. And also eat that extra taco they give you that can be soft or hard-shelled. Fire sauce goes without saying so pretend I didn’t.

Say it ain’t so, Splenda!

A new study says Splenda “contributes to obesity, destroys “good” intestinal bacteria and prevents prescription drugs from being absorbed.”  

Splenda says there’s not enough data to support this, so I’m going with them on this, since I’m a Splenda addict and I choose to believe what I want.  Also, this study was done by “the lobbying group for the natural-sugar industry and a chief competitor to and legal adversary of Splenda” says the NYT.  

I think someone should address the real problem. Namely what are the side-effects were from all that “Slenda-sweet” (i.e. British Splenda knock-off) Nora and I ate for a year in England.  Maybe Duke should do a study on THAT shit cause I think there’s crack in it.  Look, proof Slenda Sweet is real!!   Whoops, I guess it’s from South Africa.  Who knew!?

This sounds like a dinner I can make

Spaghetti Carbonara!

4 eggs, beaten

1/2-3/4 c. half and half

2T Parmesan cheese

Mix those ingredients and let sit, covered

Bacon, one pound, cooked and crumbled

Cook spaghetti (1 pound) drain, and return to pot. Add egg mixture and bacon. Combine well, for about 2 minutes. Eat immediately!

Add fresh tomatoes if you like them, (I don’t).

I am making a new effort to start cooking more regularly cause it’s not grossly hot out. After success with swiss chicken last week, this is what’s on deck for this week! Who’s interested in family dinner sometime? The recipes I use are seriously the easiest in the world. Thanks, mom.

Nom nom nom nom nom nom

Becky just suggested I check out our blog stats, something I had never done before. I noticed that four of the top ten search terms people used to find out blog yeseterday contained the word “nom.”  The search terms included “nom nom nom,” “nom,” “oh nom” and “cat non nom nom.” Well, it that’s what it takes, I say … nom nom nom nom nom nom nom.

Now for a little on the term “nom” from Urban Dictionary:

om nom
The sound of ravenous eating. Popularized by the character Cookie Monster on Sesame street, it is now used commonly in speech, especially among younger people. Cookie Monster exclaims “OM NOM NOM NOM” when gobbling down cookies (and whatever else goes in his mouth).

You can “om nom” on things besides food… for example, play-eating babies’ toes to make them laugh.

omnomnomnom (dot) com is a pop culture website where people submit their own silly photos that have been manipulated in Paint to resemble monsters eating various things, including people and pets.

Cookie Monster: “COOOKIES!!!!!! OM NOM NOM NOM” (Eats everything, including plate)

Every day I go to the bagel place and I wonder..


Our favorite bagel place has literally 23 different kinds of cream cheese, look at the menu if you don’t believe me, (my favorite is olive), But.. WHY IS THERE NO CHOCOLATE CHIP CREAM CHEESE!?

Think about it.  You can have chocolate chip pancakes, you can have strawberry cream cheese, you can have french toast with cream cheese filling, you can have chocolate chip muffins…

When it sweeps the nation, just remember, you read it here first.  (If this has been invented already, plz let me know where I can get some.. or I’ll have to make it).

UPDATE:  It DOES exist.. but only in Kentucky.

 me:  what?
it exists?!
 Dustin:  are you serioussssssssssssss
its how we roll down here
 me:  kentucky has chocolate chip cream cheese?!
 Dustin:  fuck yesss
 me:  you are blowing my mind
is it as delicious as i think it will be
 Dustin:  its a little rich for mornings, but for late brunches it is superb
