A co-worker turned me on to this incredible foodie newsletter/website called Serious Eats. It’s chock full of little news bites here and there, featuring new trends, old trends, new restaurants, old stand-bys, easy recipes, and just general musings on food. I usually take a few minutes out of every lunch break to scan their forums and articles. It’s sublimely entertaining, and written in a casual, conversational tone that really encourages reader feedback and interaction.
My “find of the day” on the site was this Oatmeal Brulee. Simple, quick, and involves fire (which always intrigues me).
Then, for laughs, they posted this video from Funny or Die that features the Blue Man Group (whose particular brand of entertainment I still can’t get behind… sorry, I seem to be the only person alive who really doesn’t have any interest in seeing a BMG performance…) in a “Before They Were Stars”-style video. The Blue Man Group serves up the unsuspecting public some McBurgers… to some hilarious consequences.
