I really do believe that the vast majority of writers (including myself here) should really avoid even attempting satire. Or sarcasm. Or whatever the hell the above is. (My point!)
If you go to the article, it’s been revised and the “inadvertently sexist” part about Fortune 500 CEOs Dudes being an inevitability has been redacted. Overall, the Editor’s note sounds pretty lame to me and sidesteps the point of the criticism (i.e., the joke was in poor taste, no pun intended):
“Editor’s Note: We’re aware that some readers did not like our attempt to be tongue-in-cheek here. We apologize. We in no way meant to imply that women aren’t just as masterful at the grill. In fact, we’d like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to some of the stories we’ve run about women who grill…
Cook’s Tip of the Day: Oil and salt work together when marinating with garlic. The oil protects the allicin and the salt speeds up the marinating time.
- I’m trying to get back into blogging (yeah, yeah, again). Let’s reconnect, Internet!
- Thanks to those of you who responded with thoughts on Pinterest vs. Tumblr! It sounds like Pinterest might be of some use (i.e., bookmarking crafty projects that I will never do! YAY!). I can only handle one procrastination platform at the moment, so we’ll wait until the semester is over to sign up for that one.
- Next week, I will begin a 28-day Whole Foods Elimination Diet, starting immediately after this Sunday’s Italian Easter dinner that will be sure to put me in a coma. It could be the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, or I could learn a lot and feel great. Stay tuned.
AND THE BIGGEST NEWS OF THEM ALL….Urbanfoodie is island-bound! I’m moving to Honolulu, Hawaii in mid-July! That means a few things…
- HOLY CRAP, HAWAII! Ahi tuna poke EVERY.DAY.
- I am really going to miss the connections I’ve made and the Twin Cities in general.
- Gonna eat, play, and live it up from now until July!!! Let’s do this! (okay, after the semester is over in May…and, like, not spend too much money because did you know that Hawaii is apparently really freaking expensive?)
What are the pros and cons of Pinterest - particularly, if I already have a Tumblr?!?! Are these platforms redundant? Can they be complementary?
I am one of those “I don’t like to learn new technology until it’s really necessary OR so many people are doing it that I feel like a dope” people (e.g., I still have not switched to the new Facebook Timeline). And, I’m too lazy/busy to go look around the internet for this answer. I want to know from people who have used these platforms. Help me out here. Thanks!
p.s. Deb + Erica, I know we already talked about this!
Why, yes! I have! And Philippine Day happens to be THIS Sunday, March 25, from 12pm-4pm at the Landmark Center in St. Paul.
Here’s the 25th annual Philippine Day Facebook event page!
As far as where you can get Filipino food in the TC, I wish I could give you an answer but it seems that Filipino restaurants never last very long (e.g., Subo, several places Midtown Global Market). There’s a restaurant in West St. Paul called Lutong Mekeni, but I haven’t checked it out yet (hit me back if you have)! I tried to go to their second outpost Lutong Mekeni II in the Midtown market…alas, it closed almost as soon as it had opened! I heard recently that you will be able to get Lumpia Shanghai at the forthcoming gastropub, George and the Dragon in South Mpls.
When will Filipino food ever find a stable place in the Minnesota food scene? :(
Local Food or Less Meat? Data Tells The Real Story (Harvard Business Review)
It’s good to see some science in this ongoing debate. Of course, “vegan locavore” beats both options… but it makes for a long, jellied winter around here.
Love the data! But, I think the most important question I’m left with is….WHAT ABOUT PORK?!? (Ahem, study limitation).
