Too Many Chefs post of the week

Pick for me these posts of three or ne'er the other side you'll see.

I. Here at Too Many Chefs, we give a fig. Rachael at Fresh Approach Cooking gives multiple figs and at least one cluck in her recipe for Chicken With Figs. ♫♫ With a fig fig here, and a fig fig there...♫♫

A. Maybe instead of giving a fig, you'd rather fritter away the day? Orangette fries up some delicious ricotta fritters. Just try to keep the neighbors away from your door if you make a batch of these.

1. Maybe we're bugging you with these puns? Bugs and germs of all sorts are on the mind of CindyM over at Food Migration. In her excellent post Befriending Bacteria, she discusses the finer points of sanitation in France and in the U.S. I'll admit I was startled when I saw eggs sitting out in the market unrefrigerated while in Paris. Things are just different there.

Wash your hands in any case so the big bad bugs don't get you and we'll meet you back her next week for the next three Posts of the Week.

So funny! Just a few days ago I tried to explaining Monty Python's Holy Grail to a friend who had never seen it.
Are you my nice twin???? (I'm the evil one)

Are you evil? I'm evil, too.
There's a pair of us - don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

Eggs and cheese sitting out unrefrigerated don't disturb me. But chopping garnishes on a board that had raw chicken just sends me squeamishly over the edge.

(I am constantly spraying our cutting board with white vinegar to kill any invisible creepy crawlies. And I confess that I wash all fruits and vegetables with soap and water - just to get rid of the oil based pesiticides that have been sprayed all over them. Yikes. It's true. I'm a crazed North American, obsessed with cleanliness.)


P.S. I do love these "posts of the week" entries, by the way.

Thanks so much for including my fig-obsession in your post! Hee hee.
