As a picky eater, I LOVED this

Have you seen this Jimmy Fallon bit with Blake Shelton?

As I have told you before here, here and here, I am a somewhat picky eater (and yes, I’m embarrassed about it). I’ll eat sushi rolls and have had sashimi, but that uni shooter would NEVER HAPPEN.

Have you done a lunch swap?

And no, I don’t mean the kind you did in elementary school when your mom sent a tuna sandwich AGAIN.

This kind.  Special thanks to A Cup of Jo for sharing the story.

An excerpt via Bon Appetit:

I discovered that the daily “Lunch Swap” routine began late last year, when associate marketing director Hillary Smith rallied four of her co-workers to alternate making and bringing home-cooked meals to share. Inspired by Julia Kramer’s James Beard Award-nominated “Lunch Al Desko” story in our April 2014 issue, the group wanted to add an element of community to re-thinking the midday meal. Now they can’t imagine workdays without the variety, pleasure, and economy of putting time and care into cooking for one another on assigned days. Since all five swappers are adventurous eaters without dietary restrictions, their food rules are relaxed, and the focus is on enjoying relatively healthy meals rich in flavor and texture.

I love the idea in theory. But as a somewhat picky eater, the notion of putting myself in others’ hands like this makes me anxious.

Have you doing something like this? What recipes would you use?

NY Times takes a group of 7 year olds to Daniel

I didn’t want to like this NYT video because it struck me as a blatant rip off of The Bold Italic‘s recent post about a four-year old’s reaction to The French Laundry.

How could they do this to me??

A place called Aroma did a really mean thing to me.

“What did they do to dear One Chicklette?!” you’re probably asking yourself, feeling outraged. I appreciate that, you know.

This is what Aroma did: They stopped offering MY FAVORITE SALAD! How horrible of them, right?

“Come over. I’ll make us brunch. With bacon!”

As much as I love bacon, my friend’s offer made me shudder. I was glad the invitation came via text, not a phone chat, so I could hide my revulsion.

“I want French toast. :-(” I texted back like a spoiled brat.
