CHG Favorites of the Week

Food Comedy of the Week
Colbert: People Destroying America
McDonald’s is underwriting good grades, giving kids cash for As on their report cards. Colbert digs deep and comes up with HILARITY.

Mouth-wateringest Blog of the Week
Well Fed
The author only posts on occasion, but OH, what occasions they are. I could inhale every morsel here and go back for fifths. Possibly sevenths or twelfths. Who's counting?

Organization of the Week
If any of y’all read Rocks in my Dryer last week, you know it was some solid, heartbreaking/heartwarming stuff. Shannon sponsored a little boy through Compassion, a Christian organization aiding kids in Africa, and got the chance to visit Uganda to meet him. Her story and pictures are positively inspiring, and there are more details on Compassion’s website on getting involved.

Quote of the Week
“You can never have enough garlic. With enough garlic, you can eat The New York Times.” – Morley Safer

Tip of the Week
This week’s tip comes from reader Kristen, and it could save a lot of fingers: if you’re chopping hot peppers and don’t have gloves, try using sandwich bags. It’ll prevent that evil capsaicin from searing your precious digits.

Untried Cheap, Healthy Recipe of the Week
Escarole with Chicken Sausage from Boston Globe
To quote the LOL Cats, “NOM NOM NOM.”

Video of the Week
“Mayonaise” by Smashing Pumpkins
The prettiest of tunes about the most abhorrent of foods. One of my absolute favorite Pumpkins songs, this gorgeous live performance runs a close second to Siamese Dream’s studio version. (Um, Billy Corgan’s shiny, shiny pate aside.)
