“This week, Frank is opening a miniature drive-in movie theater in the back of the space at 2326 E Cesar Chavez St.”

This is exciting news. Trailer food and movies sounds like exactly the kind of mash-up I can get behind. (…and those Wondercraft gals are the bee’s knees.)

We’re attending a wedding of a friend in Pompano Beach, FL this weekend. On the plane over we found this awesome recipe in the in-flight magazine, which we promptly tore out thereby depriving the next commuter of delicious meat and alcohol pleasures.    Mike- you need to research the possibility of tomato-infused vodka. We’re relying […]

CC: My blog I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed one of your products. Much to my wife’s chagrin, at any time you will find at least 3 and up to 7 or 8 mustard’s in my fridge. I buy them at the farmer’s markets, roadside stands, Amish farms, shady corner vendors with […]

Cupcakes have hit Austin and hit it real hard. We may even need culinary relief from the number of cupcake stands all over town. When I returned from Brazil, Carolee went on and on about her new favorite cupcake place and me-being-me (grumpy, unfriendly) decided she was just being her typical (joyful, enthusiastic) self and […]

You may have noticed that one of the “special McDonald’s offerings”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/mcd-china1.jpg during the Beijing Olympics was Fanta Mundo. From the sign, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I found a canned version in the convenience store up the street. The full experience is Edição limitada, Fanta Mundo – China, sabor laranja-melão. (For those who […]

I am up in my hotel room having some _chocolate amargo_ (bitter/dark chocolate) with a banana and _passa tempo(c)_ cookies for dinner. The chocolate is locally made. The banana is locally grown. The cookies are simple small rectangular vanilla cookies with browned smiley faces. Something about the simplicity of that combination makes me feel at […]

Ok, let’s get this out of the way first. I came to Brazil and while I will haven been here — what is the correct verb tense for something you are simultaneously doing, have done and will be doing in the near future? I think Douglas Adams may have written about this. — I will […]

The Mallo Cup was good, but it was only a couple weeks ago that I tried it so it definitely passes […]

A little over a month ago I stopped at the “Maine Root”:http://www.maineroot.com/ booth at the “downtown farmer’s market”:http://www.austinfarmersmarket.org/ and was delighted to find that they sold root beer in “growlers”:http://images.google.com/images?q=beer%20growler&ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&sa=N&tab=wi. I’ve been back nearly every week only to find that they’ve abandon the booth and my growler has remained empty. I’ve gone through the five […]

I have a new favorite restaurant in State College, now. “Herwig’s Austrian Bistro”:http://www.herwigsaustrianbistro.com/ (voted #1 ethnic food in State College three years in a row!) starts with a verbal assault from the owner or his son as they direct your eyes to the chalkboard menu — which changes everyday — and instruct you to order […]

Half our goals in visiting Lewisburg was visiting the weekly Farmer’s Market. It is apparent that what was once a single open-air building of local goods has expanded nearly 3x out into tented stalls. The overcrowded mix of Amish, Mennonite, town, gown and foreigner was a little overwhelming but there were several treats to be […]

We spent Wednesday driving out to Lewisburg on a mission to take pictures of my uncle’s dorm, and visit “the Farmer’s Market”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/07/05/3536/. Along the way we had lunch, a delicious iced coffee (not Starbucks — “Cherry Alley Cafe”:http://www.cherryalleycafe.com/…who has had “their website hacked”:http://www.cherryalleycafe.com/s4udi.txt by some real amateurs) and did a bit of walking.

One of my favorite pastimes is perusing the fast food offerings of foriegn locales. In the exotic world of State College, Sheetz is the dominant convenience store and I had a chance to slip inside and grab these snapshots. {background:#ddd}=. |||| {background:#ddd}=. |”Bugles Sweet & Salty Caramel”:http://www.taquitos.net/snacks.php?snack_code=3503|”Doritos(r): The Quest”:http://twobites.wordpress.com/2008/05/23/doritos-the-quest-new-mystery-flavor/|Mint 3 Musketeers is nothing new, but […]

Breakfast Becky is known for extolling the importance and beneficial nature of breakfast. While we’ve been in State College she hasn’t been enjoying her favorite breakfast, so I’m sure that when we return one of the first sounds I’ll get to hear is our blender blending. This is how it starts (bottom-to-top): beets, mangoes, ice, […]

Evee picked out “this recipe”:http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/FARMSTAND-GAZPACHO-242766 from Parade magazine for Farmstand Gazpacho.
