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…
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!
