@Amphora this one is correct. especially about the jeni's.
@greentypewriters i love this. i'm sorry i haven't had this experience.
@capturethecastle oh man, because of this thread, i've got the rhye album on my headphones in my office, and it is getting all seductive in here.
i also will not shut up about "sonsick," and the whole san fermin album is killing meeeeee!!!!
i can't ever remember caring about jewel one way or another, but i love every single thing about this post, its authors, and the series.
jane! this is really devastating! your tutorials and sass made me think of you like my internet big sister, even though i have a (lovely and talented) big sister, to whom i sent all your articles, and she agreed: you are a spiritual/internet big sister to us both. we will miss you!
@Alli525 oh i'm with you on this, fried pickles are super delicious, but something about framing it as a tempura pickle strikes me as unspeakably sad. maybe because a place like tex wasabi's exists?
@yourfaceisa oh god and also 'warm, broken hamburgers'
oh, my god, i don't even know where to start with how great this is. i thought the tempura pickle in 'guy's big balls' might be one of the saddest things i'd ever seen, but then i got to 'add a cinnabon and two more cinnabons' and i thought about louis c.k. on cinnabons and now i've lost it. lost it for good.
ohhhh i have just the thing for you! http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Wilted-Kale-and-Roasted-Potato-Winter-Salad-350884
it has some crunchy-granola cred, but nothing so crazy that it can be identified as hippie fare. it has potatoes and cheese--for people who need potatoes and cheese with their prime rib--but also kale and tahini. it is also so, so, so delicious. i make it all the time in the winter. sometimes i make a huge batch, add some handfuls of almonds, and bam it's lunch.
they lie about the kale wilting when you put the potatoes on top, though. i have never had this happen. i usually blanch it for like three seconds and then toss everything together.
