Sunday reading -- the best of the blogs

eton2One of the most gorgeous blog posts I've ever seen showed up last week on Aran Goyoaga's Cannelle et Vanille website -- it's a recipe for Sophie Dahl's Eton Mess and watermelon radishes.

Wait until you see what she does with a watermelon radish.

On Adventures of a Koodie Eli reviews CiCi's Pizza (not sure which one, there are three nearby; Ci Ci's is based in Cary, N.C. -- everyone who uses statistical-anaylsis software knows that SAS is headquartered in Cary, but I digress). I like the creative spelling Peeza- Rea. Eli is a reliable source for kid-family dining and he says that CiCi's is "awesome".

Check out this Saturday Wall Street Journal story on the oyster po'boy. The focus is of course on New Orleans, but a sidebar lists four locations outside of Louisiana that make a great po'boy, and one of them is in Baltimore!

Speaking of po'boys, Rachel Rappaport has an oyster po'boy recipe on Coconut & Lime

Hidden Gem Alert: Clarence's Taste of New Orleans in Edgewood.

Excellent Oyster Poboy.

I am Eli's mom and just wanted to add that the CiCi's Pizza that Eli went to is the one in Catonsville.

CiCi's is awesome?? o_O
The commercials can't even manage to make the food look edible. What's next, "totally cool" upscale fare at the Golden Corral?

I think Eli has been phoning it in lately.

laughing out loud
