Breakfast is serious business. Just ask my boyfriend.
Every Sunday I get dragged out of bed (too early, in my opinion), to go eat breakfast at DeDutch. My boyfriend will literally bounce on the bed to get me up. (For the record, I love going to breakfast, just not that early.)
DeDutch serves many wonderful foods. I LOVE their tosties. They’re like grilled cheese sandwiches except full of awesome instead of just cheddar cheese. I like the spinach and feta with caramelized mushrooms and aoli sauce (I may be getting the name of the sauce wrong, but it’s super tasty). There’s also blueberry, brie and red onion (a bizarre but wonderful combination) and my other standby, the ham, edam, and pineapple tostie. They also have regular breakfast platters and something called a hashboat – hashbrowns mixed with cheese, hollandaise, mushrooms, and onions. Oh, and they all come with a little fruit bowl on the side. Mmmm…
Now while I mix things up, my boyfriend always gets the same thing: Canuck toast. More traditionally known as French toast, with bacon, eggs, and a side of hashbrowns.
Last Sunday, they changed the hashbrowns. I haven’t stopped hearing about it since.
The old hashrbowns were tiny little cubes. The new ones are large chunks of potato. My boyfriend has taken affront to this change.
Strongly-worded letters have been sent to the DeDutch head office since we learned that this abominable change was instigated on their order, not on the local level.
So please, show your support and also send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org, protesting the change from hashbrowns to potato chunks. Do it for me, and for all women who have to listen to their men when there’s a menu change on their favorite food.
Save the hashbrowns.
I know it’s a little late, but Happy Valentine’s Day. Whether you rocked it solo or spent it with someone (or someones), I hope you had a grand time and ate lots of chocolate. After all, it IS one of the “Chocolate Holidays.” Valentine’s, Easter, and Halloween (and, to a lesser extent, Christmas) are all chocolate holidays. They’re all holidays that are, regardless of anything else happening, wonderful because they’re excuses to eat scads of chocolate and/or candy. Wonderful sweets litter the stores, just begging to be sampled.
I know break-ups spike around Valentine’s Day, but at least there’s lots of chocolate to console all the sad people. Could they have planned it better?
Or maybe you like healthier Valentine’s treats.
So if you find you’re bummed by the commercialism or the pressure or because you have no beau, just change your mindset.
Mmmmm, Valentine’s Day. Yum.
It will be beautiful.
It’s… SPRAY CAKE!
Spray batter into pan. Microwave. Eat!
Strangely, these students are the first people to think of cake batter in a can. Seriously people? We didn’t come up with this sooner? We should all be ashamed of ourselves.
These Harvard students had a final project to do, and they ended up winning top prize for the Harvard Innovation Challenge with Spray Cake.
Needless to say, this lazy lady is super excited for this product to hit the market. I mean, I’ve tried Cake In A Cup before (I tried Googling it, but I couldn’t find the recipe I used to use) but it still takes all the conventional ingredients and time to make. Spray Cake? Bring it.
No seriously, bring it to my house, I want to eat it.
This looks delicious.
And now for the battle of the bird food: Fancy Soy Bird versus Angry Birds
And finally: Nature isn’t always vindictive. Sometimes it’s happy.

Have a wicked awesome day.
