Around the Internet Kitchen: Go Orange!

Well, the World Cup is almost over. There’s been some fantastic goals and plays and some of the worst officiating I’ve ever seen.

FIFA really needs to get its act together, in my opinion, if they want to keep an interested audience. I can’t even imagine how it must feel to train your whole life for something and wait 4 years for one game only to have a goal stripped away from you (or one unrightfully given) because a ref made an error.

Referees are people too of course and they will make mistakes. That’s why they need to implement some sort of challenge system like in American Football. It’s the only solution that makes sense to me.

Anywho… I’ll be watching the final no matter what and I think I’m rooting for the orange. I like their uniforms and their spunk! So go Netherlands!

For the Poll this week, I want to cook something from the Capital Cooking Cookbook. This book was written by my fellow DC Food Blogger, Lauren DeSantis, host of the Capital Cooking Show. The book features versions of local DC restaurant fare!

And a few links…

What to Eat in the Heat – A slide show featuring food and drink you should focus on to get through the sweltering heat of summer. There’s a few shockers on the list! (@ HuffPost)

Strawberry Goat Cheese Ice Cream – Some of my favorite flavors in ice cream form! I had no idea you could make ice cream out of goat cheese. As an aside, The Frozen Fix is participating in this week’s Foodie Fights Battle: Frozen Desserts. Should be a chill party. (@ The Frozen Fix)

Red Hot Dogs – I always see these bright red hot dogs and I can’t say that I’ve ever tried one. For some reason they scream summer time though and I was interested in the idea of getting some that I could make at home! (@ Erin Cooks)

Fig and Balsamic Beef Kabobs – Is it possible to make kabobs not on a grill? I don’t really know but my grill-less self might have to figure it out soon. There’s just too many awesome kabob recipes floating around these days. (@ My Baking Addiction)

Have a good weekend everybody! I’ll be watching the World Cup Finals. Go Orange!

  1. red hot dogs are a maine specialty! i’ll be surprised if you can find them in dc- but then again, maybe not, since it IS dc! maybe i’ll mail you some if you can’t find them.

  2. Wow, that first link was so dumb. No shit, I should drink water? “Nutritionist” Cyndie says not to eat cherries during cherry season because of some mystical Chinese bullshit? Let me consult my magic 8-ball about whether these claims are scientifically valid.

  3. Thank you so much for the link back to my Red Hot Dog post Nick! And yes you absolutely can have those very red dogs mailed directly to your home. Just click on the distributors link in my post and I’m sure they’d be happy to oblige your curiosity :)
