The Internet Kitchen: A Garden Is Happening

by Nick

Sometime soon after SXSW, I’m going to get my very first garden up and running. I already have a general idea of where I want it and what I’m going to plant.

I think I’m going to build a raised bed garden because the ground is pretty hard in my yard. If I owned the house, I’d probably take the time to try to bring the soil back to life, but I’m not sure if that makes sense since Betsy and I might not be here forever.

Expect an update or two as I venture into my first gardening experiment!

After I repaired and seasoned my cast iron skillet, I want to make something in it. You pick!

And a few links!

America’s Best New Sandwiches Take 2 – Another list of some awesome sandwiches being served throughout the US these days. If you happen to live in a one of these lucky cities, I hope you find the time to hunt down one of these! I’ll be on the look out for the Chacarero next weekend! (@ Endless Simmer)

Bulgogi Cheesesteak Sandwich – Speaking of sandwiches… my friend Dan posted this on yesterday. An awesome twist on both bulgogi and cheesesteak. There’s no way I’d turn one of these down. (@ Tablespoon)

Marinated Fresh Anchovies – I absolutely love anchovies. It’s one of my favorite appetizers. While I don’t mind the canned variety, freshly marinated ones are just out of this world. I’m not sure I can get my hands on any fresh ones, but if you’re lucky enough to have them around, do this. (@ Sippity Sup)

Artichokes and Cheesy Grits – Artichokes are notorious for being a big pain in the butt to prepare so if you’re going to do it, make sure you have a great application for them. This looks about as good as it get in my book! (@ No Recipes)

Have a great weekend everyone!
