– Sysco may claim that midwesterners don’t care about organic food, but Liza’s Sis begs to differ:
I live in Oklahoma, and find there are an abundance of local/organic options. Granted, I care enough to look… but it isn’t hard at all!…To be dismissed as “non-coastal” is total bullshit. I live in a place where I can eat plentifully from what is grown within 100 miles of me nearly yearround, and that’s true for a lot of us here in the middle. Frankly, before the Wal-Marts of the world starting taking over our small towns, I’m willing to bet that most people here were a lot better about eating locally and supporting farmers than the masses on the coasts.
Thems fighting words! Thanks, Liza’s Sis. PS – her novel-esque comment is totally worth reading in full.
– Elsewhere, forkitude threw down the gauntlet and asked for the worst food combinations you can possibly come up with. OMGYEAHYOUKNOWME got the ball rolling:
mush of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal and flour and blackpepper
Yum! Yuck? Yum? I’m so confused. Let’s keep it going, though!
– And how ’bout some crazy pizza combos, eh? Don’t leave an ES-er hanging!
