Quick Links: Those Pie Council goons got to you, too, didn't they?!

  • January 23 was National Pie Day. If I had known, I'd have baked a pie, or something. (Isn't it odd that there's even such a thing as the American Pie Council? Who sits on this council? Homer Simpson?) I wonder if the Pie Council's jurisdiction extends to tarts, because this is a nice looking recipe for a leek tart.
  • It's down to Marcel and Ilan on "Top Chef." Snack points out that Ilan has quit his job, leading to rampant speculation that he is the one true Top Chef, as it were. Or maybe he just hated his boss or something?
  • Pinkberry has moved in down the street from us, so now we can "love, obsess, and indulge in this pure, swirly lifestyle." We tried it last night. For those who don't know, Pinkberry is frozen yogurt. What sets it apart from other frozen yogurts is that it tastes like yogurt (unless you get the green tea flavor, in which case, it tastes like green tea). I thought it was interesting, but I didn't have the experience described on Franklin Avenue.
  • We all know that global warming is a natural phenomenon, like the cycle of the seasons or nuclear winter, that has nothing to do with greenhouses gases. What we didn't know, is that it's going to change where we grow our wine grapes. Fancy a Syrah from Sussex, guv'na?
