Food Day: Cute Edition

Happy food day folks. I hope everyone is enjoy the madness of March, but for now, here's the news:

Easter Weekend: As usual the Wednesday before a holiday, the food pages are flooded with recipes and ideas for eating your way through spending time with family. I've never celebrated Easter beyond kicking my sister's ass at Easter egg hunts and eating egg salad by the pound, but there are some good ideas in the LA Times and the Dallas Morning News, as well as a really cute article about peeps in the Denver Post.

A garden grows in Englewood: Urban farms are becoming quite the rage in certain parts of the country, this Chicago Sun-Times article chronicles one such farm and how it's helped revitalized a community.

Tofu Tips: If you're as crazy about tofu as I am, you'll want to check this Arizona Central article out about the best ways to prepare this nutritious and delicious treat.

Let them eat Smith Cake
: There's a push in the great state of Maryland to make Smith Island Cake the state's official dessert.

This NPR article gives a great history of the cake and the island for which it's named.

This isn't my father's MRE: When my father was in the Air Force I always liked when he brought home MREs, or Meals Ready to Eat for those not in the know. Well it seamed that the crap he ate in the 70s and 80s is now being replaced by a new generation of actually edible food according to the Washington Post.

That's about it for now folks. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
