#FoodPorn: Shrimp Stir Fry
With baby bok choy, mushrooms, onions, carrots, edamame, etc…
This is one of my favorite go-to recipes. It’s simple and can be adapted easily. Seriously, if you’ve got leftover veggies from last night’s dinner, (string beans, broccoli, etc.) toss them in.
Serve over rice or noodles. …or use up the leftover rice from last night.

Clafoutis is a French dessert of fruit, but this variation features a brunch twist. This cherry tomato clafoutis is similar to a quiche.

A Texas Man Had The Perfect Response When Obama Asked If He Was Gay

Daniel Webb, a comedian and sometime drag queen based in Austin, Texas, got a hearty laugh out of President Barack Obama with a joke about his sex life.

According to the Austin Chronicle, the exchange occurred after the president asked Webb if he was gay while visiting a restaurant Thursday. When Obama went up to pay at Austin’s famous Franklin Barbecue, the Chronicle reported Webb, who was working the cash register, “threw his hand down and slapped the counter dramatically.”

"Equal rights for gay people!" Webb declared.

"Are you gay?" asked Obama.

"Only when I have sex," Webb quipped.

Webb told the Chronicle the joke got Obama to laugh. He said the president told him to “bump me.” The pair subsequently exchanged a fist bump that was captured on camera.

Obama faced some criticism for cutting the long line at Franklin Barbecue. However, when he arrived at the front, he tried to treat some of the people he bypassed to their meals. According to the White House press pool report Obama “produced a wad of 20s for an order that came to exceed $300” Obama then asked an aide if his credit card was good. When he confirmed his card would work, Obama put the hefty barbecue tab on his “JPMorgan card.”

Webb told the Chronicle he believed the anger over Obama’s line-cutting was misplaced and argued security concerns necessitated the move.

"Logistically, that’s a really lazy complaint. I don’t think you can safely have a world leader hanging around in a line," explained Webb.

However, Webb said there was at least one politician he’d be upset to see in the line at Franklin – Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

"If Rick Perry would’ve walked in, I would have lost my job. I would’ve taken that old queen to town," Webb said.

I find it interesting that the “liberal media” failed to include the exchange between Webb and the President when they reported that Obama cut in line at the Texas restaurant. I’m proud that our President feels comfortable around regular everyday people. It makes me feel that maybe he’s trying his best to keep in touch with what’s going on in our lives.

And kudos to the quick witted Webb. I’d have been all star struck. :)

*Food Porn: The Sweet Days of Summer.
As summer approaches, I prepare simple syrup for iced coffee in the morning. This seems like a good vessel for something sweet. :P

Basic Recipemakes approximately 1 1/2 cups
1 cup sugar1 cup water
Simple, right?
Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow mixture to cool, then decant into a clean container (preferably glass) with a tight-fitting lid. — or cork, like the sexy male torso bottle pictured. ;)
Keeps in the refrigerator for several weeks.


If you’ve got some vanilla ice cream in the freezer, float a small scoopful on top of your iced coffee. 
Iced Coffee Float anybody? Put a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream into a tall glass then top with cold black coffee. It’s not exactly “diet” friendly but a little indulgence every once in a while doesn’t hurt.
Simple syrup is also great for fresh brewed iced tea and any mixed drink that calls for sugar.
Sorry. Every joke and pun I can think of regarding that “man” bottle and the sticky sweetness of simple syrup is a bit too lewd for mixed company.

I’m suddenly in the mood for Jell-O.

But, like a baked potato, you have to plan for Jell-O.

Now I’m thinking of Mitch Hedberg.

Neon Sign at the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia

The Reading Terminal Market (12th and Arch Sts) is the best place in center city for fresh, affordable, locally grown produce. You’ll also find fresh fish, poultry, meats, and a variety of home made foods and crafts.
If you go at lunchtime, there’s usually someone playing live music.
I don’t know why some people hate on Philly. There’s so much to see and do here. The people are loyal. It’s a great city!

"E. coli outbreak linked to sprouts; hummus, dips, walnuts recalled."

By Elizabeth Landau, CNN

This has been a big week for food product recalls and the risk of food borne illness.

Seven confirmed and three likely cases of E. coli infection linked to raw clover sprouts have been reported, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.

The patients are all in either Idaho or Washington. Half the people who have fallen ill have been hospitalized.

Preliminary investigations indicate the likely source of this outbreak are raw clover sprouts produced by Evergreen Fresh Sprouts LLC of Idaho, the CDC said. The state departments of health in Washington and Idaho are telling consumers not to eat raw clover sprouts produced by Evergreen Fresh Sprouts.

Meanwhile, hummus and dip products totaling about 14,860 pounds are being voluntarily recalled by Lansal Inc. amid concerns about possible bacterial contamination.

At the same time, Sherman Produce is recalling some bulk and packaged walnuts sold to retailers in Missouri and Illinois.

These two recalls are precautionary measures against possible Listeria monocytogenes, which may cause serious and even fatal infections in people with weakened immune systems, such as the elderly.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with either recall, the respective companies said.

Both companies advise consumers who bought the recalled products to throw them out or return them for a full refund. The products should not be eaten.
