I have a retraction I would like to make. Many years ago I stated, in public, that I thought The Wire was the best TV drama of all time and would never be beat by any TV Drama. It was just perfect.
I maintain that it still top two, but I really think Breaking Bad might be better. I first starting watching Breaking Bad last year when I was cooped up on the couch recovering from knee surgery. While it starts slower than The Wire, it rapidly accelerates and by season two I was completely sucked in.
I’m so sucked in, in fact, that while I watched all the older seasons on Netflix, I had to buy the most recent two seasons because I couldn’t wait to watch them and we don’t have cable.
There are only two episodes left in the series and I have to mentally prepare before I watch an episode now. It’s some crazy TV.
In short, if you are in the market for a new TV drama, and you don’t mind a fair amount of drugs and violence, this show is off the charts.
Finally back in my own kitchen so we can do a poll this week!

Vegetarian Caesar Salad – Traditional caesar salad must have anchovies in it. I actually use a lot of anchovies when I make my version. To be honest, I never really even considered a veggie version, but it’s probably a good idea to have on hand. (@ Perfect Pantry)
Simply Recipes Photography – I always like to see how some of my favorite food blogs take their photos. I particularly like Elise’s photos because they aren’t over-stylized and really focus on the food. Here’s some tips from her. (@ Simply Recipes)
