Food Blog of the Week
Pennies and Pounds
I came across this blog for the first time yesterday, and so far, I like what I see. Good articles with lots of additional resources. Check it out if you’ve got a few.

Food Comedy of the Week
Foo Fighters’ Tour Rider
Dave Grohl and Co. were on Top Chef last week, no doubt because of their legendary-within-the-industry tour rider, which includes requests like, “Every lunch should include a Soup of the Day – please try to make it a vegetarian selection. Meaty soups make roadies fart.” Truer words, never spoken.

Food Organization of the Week
NFL Play 60
To sum, “NFL Play 60 is a health and fitness initiative created by the National Football League to inspire kids to play for 60 minutes a day and eat well … In addition to national reach through PSAs and online programs, Play 60 is also implemented at the grassroots level through NFL's in-school, after-school and team-based programs all with a focus on the importance of physical fitness and healthy lifestyles.”

Food Quote of the Week
"I like my coffee like I like my women. In a plastic cup." – Eddie Izzard

Food Video of the Week
“Suppertime” from You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown
The animated version!



Extra Special Totally Unrelated Bonus of the Week
Sweet But Dark: 50 Ways to Kill a Twinkie
Actually, it IS kind of related! WOO! Super-cool pictorial post on the art of Twinkie-slaying. Beware, the vengeful Teddy Grahams…

Eddie Izzard also likes his women like he likes his coffee, hot and strong... with a spoon in them?

Though maybe that's just for the president of Burundi.
