Week-end Wreckage, Part I

[Pride by Jamie Wyeth.]

I don't generally like the post-a-minute food sites like slashfood or serious eats, but every once in a while they post something that contains an interesting sentence like this:

Argentina's president Cristina Fernandez suggested that devouring pork was a viable alternative to Viagra and she had just spent a very fulfilling weekend with her husband after eating barbecued pork.
[via /food.]

Closer to this blog's roots, though, I thought I'd mention my new favorite vegan blog name: Seitan Is My Motor.

Things I learned this week include the fact that there is a fruit that will cause sour things to taste sweet, and that you only need to be eight years old to hold a recreational (non-commercial) lobster permit.

That is pretty brilliant.

Heh, I wish it were a more useful blog, because the name makes me laugh so much.

Seitan is my Motor is one of my favorites! Mihl is a talented baker, and I always learn something about German bread or culinary traditions from her posts.

That Miracle Fruit sounds like something out of Alice in Wonderland...

We made some soup tonight inspired by a recipe from the blog and it was pretty good.
