A recent trip to the midwest was enlightening to say the least. Surrounded by acres upon acres of farmland, what I ate was less than stellar. Welcome to Food Hell.
Back home now, and things are better.
Autumn is a perfect time for comfort food, and there are few things more comforting than Beer Braised Beef over Cheesy Polenta. What goes well with that? Well, beer. Specifically, Founder’s Breakfast Stout – courtesy of our good friend Groucho at The Beer Report. Never has the marriage of coffee and beer been more perfect.
A recent post I read in defense of PETA (a stance I’m growing more and more tired of) sets me off a bit, as does the fallout from a short documentary that covered the August floods that destroyed organic crops in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Watch this documentary by Gretta Wing Miller & Aarick Beher, read an insensitive rebuttal to the situation the farmers find themselves in, and donate to help the farmers, if you feel compelled.
