Let's hurl a Brick E Mart!

- Bart Simpson during the "Who Needs the Kwik E Mart" song by the Simpson Family and Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. (I almost spelled that right the first time, I only missed the "i" and "o")

I grilled some Spanish burgers and an eggplant last night. The recipe for the Spanish burgers is 1-1.5 lbs. ground beef, one Goya seasoning packet with azafran and some sofrito from a jar by Goya.

The eggplant I peeled and let drain for 10-30 minutes. If I can find tahini somewhere, it will become baba ghanoush or baba ghannouj if you use Alton Brown's spelling.

I'll let you know how it turns out.

I forgot to give you the link to Les' blog about the 2nd Survivorman season. There ya go.

Ever heard of Norman Borlaug? I hadn't really but he revolutionized modern farming and agriculture and essentially saved millions of lives by using the land to its fullest and getting dramatic increases in food production. He received the Congressional Gold Medal, our nation's highest civilian award, and it hasn't received any coverage in our country's national media. So he isn't a blond white woman and his story is kinda sciency, it doesn't change the fact that it's a big story that has been ignored. Oh, he's also only one of two living Americans who have received the Nobel Peace Prize. Jimmy Carter is the other.

Please read Gregg Easterbrook's take on "Greatest Living American Ignored."

I'll snap that picture today. Promise.

Plans for this weekend? Waiting for the Simpsons Movie to come out, not going to see Transformers, finishing up the house, going to Ikea for some efficient use of small space decorating items, so watch out ATL, we're coming!
