Look what he’s gone and done:
Tim McGraw’s Spicy Jalapeno Fritos
Curious that there’s nothing about this on his website…
TimMcGraw.com *does*, however, have the scoop (ha — like Fritos, get it?) on his new fragrance:
“The packaging, from the bottle to the carton, was inspired by McGraw’s modern appeal with its uniquely shaped rectangular glass bottle.”
Truer words were spoken, eh?
Guess who got an internship at Martha Stewart Living.
I am totally tight with the folks at Gawker after Tuesday’s whole bowling thing…and so I was thrilled to see this:
In Which Thomas Friedman is Hit with a Pie
Apparently pieing has become popular for political purposes. Or at least that’s what it says here. (I’ve always thought of it as more Jack Tripper fare…)
This is sort of exciting, you know? I’ve never really used “pie” as a verb before…
Says one of my high school classmates who will potentially be reunioning with me at the Five Seasons Brewing Company in October:
“I got a new issue of Cooking Light yesterday and I think they had a revamped recipe for Sex in a Pan in there … but I couldn’t tell for sure … IT WAS definitely pudding with crust … and it sounded like Sex in a Pan, but it was named something lame like “Supreme Chocolate Delight” or something like that …I might have to try it out and see if it compares!”
Interesting timing! I assume everyone saw the pudding story in the NYT yesterday??
The best pudding I have had to date has to be the filling you make for chocolate cream pie in this recipe. I made it at Christmas even though no one wanted chocolate cream pie.
One of Alaska’s storied summertime wildflowers is fireweed – interesting because the buds change as the summer progresses…although I don’t remember whether it’s that the reddish-purplish color moves up the plant or down? It must be up.
In any event, when I was buying Kleenex this weekend, I found boxes of the CVS brand (so…okay…not actual Kleenex…but who says “tissues”?) with *fireweed* on it. I’ve never seen fireweed on this side of the U.S.-Canadian border! Imagine my surprise and delight!
(Also: In other news…guess who is *going* to Alaska in about a month. This person needs to escape the city for a bit…and was afraid she would not be able to in the period between graduation and gainful employment. Hurrah!)
