Too Many Chefs post of the week

We're a little late, but then, so were the White Sox who just won the pennant! Go go White Sox!

A. First, let's give it up for the Sox ALCS opponents the Anaheim of California Angels of Los Angeles in the Valley on the Thames. Salute them with Lick the Spoon's Cajeta and Angel Food cake. The sweet caramel complements the Angel food cake which is light, fluffy, and also can't hit a curve.

1. It's been since 1959 that the White Sox won the pennant, and you have to go back to 1917 to find a World Series they won and didn't throw. A Twenty-First Century World Series in Chicago will be sweet. Sweet like the almond kheer recipe I found at The Green Jackfruit this week! Almonds, milk, sugar - what's not to like?

I. Of course, the White Sox getting into the World Series will cause Cubs fans to have some wounds to lick. Why not enhance the experience with bacon bandages like these at the Pragmatic Chef?

Next week, we'll be sure to have some Astros jokes ready since there's no way the Cards come back. NO WAY. Otherwise Cubs fans' heads all around the country will just explode. "Root for the Cards. No, the Sox. No, the Cards. No, the Sox. No, th-(BOOM!)"

Maybe some Pierzynski pierogies would be in order for next week...

What a coincidence! I chose the Almond Kheer post as one of my Posts of the Week as well. Nice one. I also chose the Julia Si Julie No! post from this very blog.

Go Sox!!! I've been an NL fan my whole life, but I'm rooting for the Sox this year.

Amy - I saw that. I'd picked it on Friday so I was uninfluenced by your choice, but I understand why we both picked it. It's a great recipe.

And thanks for the pointer to the J/J post!
