Feed Us Back: Comments of the Week


Lindsay has some thoughts about eating while pregnant:

Do you know if its a boy or girl? considering your wife’s craving for fruit, i’d have to guess girl. supposedly “meat” cravings lean towards a boy in the belly.

Is this true??? I’d like to hear some scientific back-up.

Eick piles on the backlash to the cheese backlash:

Cheese has very little to do with why Americans are fat. We eat an average of 33 pounds of cheese a year. Germans eat 45. The French 52. The Greeks 80 pounds! And yes, people in those countries are all much less fat than we are.

Guess there’s gotta be some other reason why we’re fatter than Euros, huh? Oh, right — they don’t deep fry their cheese or put bacon inside it.

– Finally, Greg H. has a fantastic follow-up to our dishwasher lasagna post:

The beach house we rented at Nags Head, NC this last week had the usual instruction book of do’s and don’ts supplied by the realty company, but with one amusing difference this time: On the page dealing with the operation and care of the kitchen appliances was the following notice in bold red underlined letters:

“You CANNOT steam crabs in the dishwasher! This is not a joke; it has actually been tried here. You would not believe the mess that was left for the cleanup staff to deal with!”

See if I were them I wouldn’t put that sign up, because I would never have thought of that, but now I know exactly what I’m doing next time I go to the beach.
