Link Feast: 2.13.09

The Maggots in Your Mushrooms - Food safety isn't perfect. Occasionally you're going to have a little extra protein in that salad in the form of a critter. The amazing thing is the FDA has an elaborate specification for how much critter protein is acceptable. The FDA decided!

Put Effin' Swearing Back In - Gordo's potty mouth gets bleeped in the US, but when the show gets aired in the UK, they put the bad words back in! Ah cultures. Page 3 girls, what page 3 girls?

Please, no love on the menu - The obligatory Valentine's Day link, on a subject that has gotten quite a bit of attention lately — restaurant marriage proposals.

Nutty for Nutella: spreadable joy - Nutella slathered on a freshly baked croissant with a double espresso on the side — daddy likey.

If I Made a Commercial for Trader Joe's - When will H-town get a Trader Joe's?

Number one...who the hell sits and counts the number of times the F bomb is dropped?

Number two, perhaps it can be turned into a drinking game like when Jack Bauer says "Damn It" on 24 (which by the way, my inside sources, say they've asked him to curtail the Damn its...) Ha ha ha

The proposal reply of Not a hope in hell is funny. Poor guy.

@jodycakes Brits can be OCD sometimes. But you know better than I do!

Houston Foodie..I LOVE Trader Joe's and regularly email TJ's to beg them to bring Houston some salvation!!!(Although, I don't think they read my emails anymore...!)
So, I bring an extra suitcase when I travel so I can stock up on coffee, dried white peaches, chocolate pretzels, the list goes on....!
