Around the Internet Kitchen – It’s Fall!
Before I had a solid girlfriend (Hi!), I used to love Fall because it is the perfect time to pick up chicks. Let’s analyze:
– Nobody is expecting it. Everybody expects love in Spring. A Fall fling is like a sneak attack. It always works.
– There are tons of “cute” dates you can participate in if you are a guy to show your cute side: The leaves are changing so a picnic is fun, you can go apple picking, and the best hook-up holiday of all, Halloween, is in the Fall.
– Winter is around the corner. Everyone wants somebody to cuddle with in the Winter. So this is the last chance dance. It’s hunting season.
And I don’t mean this to be just for guys. Ladies, now is a great time to snag a man. Just pretend to like Football. It’s seriously that easy. But you probably know that already.
And now for some links around the Internet world that have nothing to do with the rant I just gave. Except that I found these to be timely links. Use them or… well… you won’t lose them because it’s the Internet and you can’t delete stuff from the Internet. But use them.
50 Awesome Crockpot Recipes – There is nothing that says Fall like a crockpot full of awesome. This is a pretty good list to base some great weekend crockpots off of. Some of you may say, “Oh Nick, this is over a year old.” Well, crockpot recipes are timeless. So live. (@ Keeping the Castle)
What to do With Spaghetti Squash – After I made my dish last weekend with spaghetti squash I started looking around for other alternatives. It’s just such an interesting and odd ingredient. This was a great article which described some of the benefits and gives a very interesting recipe. (@ Artsy Foodie)
Angel Hair Pasta with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese – I sort of love Giada although I wouldn’t usually trust someone who makes the dishes she makes and is yet very skinny. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt though and attribute it to genes. If you have left over sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese after you make this, you should make this for brunch the next day. (@ The Food Network I guess)
These next two links are related to a hobby of mine which is personal finance and shopping for good deals. I like to eat good food, but I especially like to eat good cheap food.
Cooking on a Budget – This is an absolutely great list of ways to cook really healthy, good food on a tight budget. I’ve used a lot of these tips and they are all good. It’s great to have them all in one place. (@ Simply Recipes)
Once-a-month Shopping – This might be a bit intense for me, but it is an interesting strategy. The idea is that if you plan your meals you can save money and time by going to the grocery store as few times as possible in a month. There is something to it, but I also do enjoy being able to cook a meal on a whim. The idea of menu planning for an entire month is a bit much. Still though, there are plenty of good budgeting principals that you can pull away from the article. (@ Get Rich Slowly)
Be sure to check back on Sunday. I’m going to be posting a great, classic brunch dish! Or you could just subscribe and it will magically appear in your email.
