Three items for your morning reading


From Obama Foodoroma:

1) A preview of next Monday's official announcement of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Expect a recommendation for more fewer lardons.

And from

2) DiGiorno's unholy marriage of pizza, cookies and chicken

3) Flavor Flav opening a chicken restaurant in Iowa

what, it was too difficult for people to buy separate packages of premade pizza, frozen chicken wings and ready-to-bake cookie dough? Or, can you put them all in the oven AT THE SAME TIME and same temperature? because that's a technological advancement, right there.

Note to self: invent pizza with a cookie crust.

Possible varieties:
1) White pizza with snickdoodle crust
2) Chocolate chip crust topped with mozzarella, bacon and pineapple
3) Fig Newton crust topped with gruyere, kalamata olives and smoked turkey

Speaking only for myself, mind you, DiGiorno clearly knows how to whet my appetite through mangled English.

"Wyngz" are so much more inviting than wings, don't you think?

Y and Z are the most delectably underused letters in the alphabet, I find. Also, extreme.
