Dead Pitch #4: Birthday Eats

Granted, the weakest of the bunch. But can I really be blamed? ‘Tis September…

No one may care about them again until they break up or until the next season of The Bachelor begins, but Bachelorette Ali’s birthday celebration from Roberto last week included a cake presented on-air during her morning TV segment for Fox 5 San Diego, dinner at Nobu and champagne at the Hard Rock Café.

All in all, not a bad way to ring in 26. I just made plans to go to Atlantic City and try Bobby Flay Steak to, err, not ring in 26. Birthdays are good excuses to let yourself eat whatever you want or to try out a new place. And…we could have asked readers about their most memorable birthday cakes or meals?

Pop-Tarts World Beckons…But Guess Who Still Hasn’t Gotten Frosted.

As thankful as I am to have new freelance gigs, blogging for CafeMom’s The Stir has not left me with a whole lotta energy to write about even *more* food topics here.

Plus, I may or may not be gainfully employed for a bit…making it even less likely that I will have the oomph to write about food (or food-ish topics) when I get home.

Thus, my blog has been neglected. (And after conning my friends into supporting me on Facebook no less. Sheesh.) Now it’s practically September…which means Labor Day and Back to School and Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and I AM ALMOST 30.

So. A lot on my mind…but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been thinking of you, my dear blog/readers…

I read this story about Pop-Tarts World when it was published on August 8 (!) and I thought it would make a great blog post. In a perfect world, I would have visited the Times Square location by now and would have the inside scoop on Pop-Tarts sushi, vending machines that enable you to create your own variety packs and how you can get “frosted.” But, sadly, the best I can do is tell you that it exists. And that I think the idea is pretty great (…and I applaud the Pop-Tarts marketing team…)…even though I’d probably pick Pillsbury Toaster Strudel over Pop-Tarts any day of the week.
