Food Day: Do it for Dad Edition

Happy Food Day folks! With Father's Day right around the corner, I'm seeing a lot of stories today to get you ready to celebrate Dad. Here's that, and everything else that's going on in the world of food:

Looking for food in all the wrong places: Sometimes it's a good thing. WaPo's Tom Sietsema shows us how to find a great meal where you'd least expect it.

Harder than quiting smoking: For some, that's probably just how hard quiting or even cutting back on meat is. The NYT's Mark Bittman shows us the path to less meat, more veggies.

Make it Summer all year long: You may be reaping the bounty of your local farmers market now, but come December, you'll be wishing it was June again. But you can make it June all year long by freezing your fruit according to this Dallas Morning News report.

My parents have been doing this for a while now, and my mom (no website to link to) reports (told me on the phone last night) that she's starting to freeze the first of the mangos that are falling off of our tree, and will eventually turn them into some sort of rum based beverage.

Growing is Growing: Worried about tomato scares? High food prices? The Denver Post might just have the solution for you.

Father's Day Fun: Looking to have some fun with dad this weekend? There are a lot of stories out there with some tips and recipies, here are some links: Arizona Central, Chicago Sun-Times,
and the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.
