This Fresh Forkin' Friday I'd like you all to do a little thinking. About Mom. I'm not saying brunch is a bad idea, I think brunch is lovely, what with all the eggs and carving of pinkish meat. I just wonder ... how many brunches did your mom slave over for you? Not a whole ton, am I right? But then think about how many dinners she made for you. Think about how many times she slapped two pieces of bread with some random lunch meat together for you before your soccer game so that you had something (dear god something) in your stomach. Think about the times when you came home from school and she was just about to leave for night school, where she was working toward the CPA degree which would eventually help pay for your own costly liberal arts education, and yet still managed to make you some tuna salad sitting on a leaf of butterhead lettuce as garnish. A garnish. Life was teetering on a wire and there was certainty on no side except the slog forward to make it to the next point, and there was a garnish. Make your Mom dinner, make her something she used to make for you. Whether it's an attempt at the family recipe goulash or mac n' cheese from the blue box, if it meant something to you, it will mean something to her. And that's worth a million chafing dishes.
Devil's Advocate has opened it seems and, apparently, it's a ball shop. Beef or pork meat balls, of course, but there are also fish and poultry balls a foot. Commence food writer jokey overload.
I only just found out that the IDS court, crystal as it is, is getting both a People's Organic Coffee AND a Yogurt Labs location. My afternoon skyway stroll must be re-jiggered.
Jeff Williamson, the brewer and founder of Flat Earth Brewery, is no longer at the helm. It seems to be a confusing situation at best.
Also out is the ridiculous notion that happy hour is some sort of evil plot to actually make people un-happy. Way to go Edina, welcome to the bigs.
