CHG Favorites of the Week

Food Blog/Site of the Week
Recipes for Health at the New York Times
The Gray Lady (or more likely, her interns) (okay, actually Times writer Martha Rose Shulman) has compiled all her healthiest recipes into a single database, crying out to be searched. From risotto to eggplant to stale bread (yes, stale bread), it’s waiting for your clicks.

Food Comedy of the Week
If you like food puns – and I KNOW you like food puns – go here right now. Don’t even read the next thing. Just go. You will laugh your corny butt off for days. Down below: Eddie Cheddar. (Thanks to Jezebel for the link.)

Food Quote of the Week
Continuing with this week’s literary theme, this excerpt comes from Ray Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine, via commenter Wifemommaniac. Sweet:

“RELISH! What a special name for the minced pickle sweetly crushed in its white capped jar. The man who had named it, what a man he must have been. Roaring, stamping around, he must have tromped the joys of the world and jammed them in this jar and writ in a big hand, shouting, RELISH! For its very sound meant rolling in sweet fields with roistering chestnut mares, mouths bearded with grass, plunging your head fathoms deep in trough water so the sea poured cavernously through your head. RELISH!”

Food Movie Clip of the Week
The dinner scene from American Beauty
To know:
1) This is rated R for language.
2) This is a great scene.
3) Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening act their faces off.
4) Asparagus is thrown.

Totally Unrelated Extra Special Bonus of the Week
Shadow Hare
Crime is afoot in Cincinnati! Fortunately, Shadow Hare, his ever-so-slightly prepubescent voice, and several others are here to help. In its way, this is incredibly heartwarming.
