Hi, all. I’m away from home as I write this and I’m looking out the window at snow. Gee, snow, imagine that. It seems like winter just doesn’t want to let us out of its icy grip this year. I mean, here it is March, and instead of enjoying the spring air, I’m watching snow cover the ground. But the past few years have been freaky, haven’t they?
Hey, kids. Okay, so this week, democratic Assemblyman from Brooklyn (unfortunately), Felix Ortiz, proposed legislation that would ban salt in restaurant cooking in New York. Chefs are fighting this proposed legislation and calling it absurd. Full article HERE.
Oh, my god. March 5 is National Cheese Doodle Day! Can you believe that? Remember munching on an entire bag of cheese doodles and ending up with orange hands? Those were the days. For some of you, it was today. That’s okay, we all have our weaknesses.
Whether you prefer Wise’s Cheez Doodles or Frito Lay’s Cheetos, or those little, round orangy balls that they sell in those gigantic plastic tubs and try to pass off as cheese doodles, this is a snack food that seems to live on and on. It’s associated with kids’ parties and backyard barbecues, and if you serve it at a party, it’s considered (pardon the pun) cheesy. Yet, we can’t help ourselves, can we? I don’t know about you, but I find it impossible to control my hand when it reaches for the bowl of the bright orange oddities. No matter how good my intentions are when I go to a party, no matter how determined I am to stick to the crudites and fruit salad, my hand just moves away from my body and makes a beeline for those cheese doodles. Damn hand! It’s all your fault I have weight issues!
