Posts of the week - We digest, you deride! Each week we pick three posts from the vast infinitely expanding blogosphere to highlight. Here's this week's crop in no particular order:
I. Nourishment lets us into a meeting of Soup Club. Of course the first rule of soup club is you don't talk about soup club, but Nourishment lets it all out and we are given six individual soup recipes in this one post, many with wine and musical accompaniment suggestions.
A. J3s has long been the heroine of those who eschew the corporate grocery chains and their overpriced lower quality goods. Her blog F*** Corporate Groceries has detailed her journey away from the Jewels and Dominick's and Whole Foods (which she calls Whole Paycheck). She is now joining a group trying to establish a supermarket co-op in the West Town neighborhood of Chicago. Worth a read and definitely worth following.
1. I'll admit to personal bias in this selection - Moira at Who Wants Seconds tackles macro photography and picks one of my favorite spices as the first subject - cardamom writ large. Wow, great photo! I don't know Moira, but I loves me some cardamom.
One extra note - We've already praised the participants in the Menu for Hope project, starting with Pim, but we'd like to make sure the translators - Pascale of C'est mois qui l'ait fait! and Melissa at Cooking Diva - also get a little loving from the foodie crowd. Head over and tell them thanks (or merci or gracias), then put a little cash in the UNICEF kitty for tsunami relief.
