My soul mate, the great J. Wellington Wimpy.

This week, on the (dun dun dun!!!!) BLOG WATCH:

All Purpose Dark skips town. Hey, it sounds like a good idea. Labor day weekend is upon us, and I know I'm definitely due for a road trip. Naples sounds nice, but I get the feeling the West Coast as well as the Keys could experience some of those bands everyone is talking about. Maybe Gustav won't affect Florida at all, but do you really trust forecasters?

Seems like everyone is trying to shed some weight these days, even Paula at Mango & Lime. Shrinking economy and shrinking stomachs... it makes sense, right? There's always that one food item that draws you back into gluttony though. For me it would be hamburgers. I'm like my boy J. Wellington Wimpy -- anyone want to spot me till after Labor Day?

How's Miami Dish keeping cool? With the sangre de verano, naturally. Both of these blood red jugos look mighty refreshing... I wonder if you can make a cocktail with them? If you know, holler back.

Is it just me, or is the photography at I Shot the Chef amazing or what? I made fried rice myself this week, and it didn't look close to this good, and I was the one eating it. Helps to have a hubby that's an amazing photographer, I guess. Oh, and happy blogday, IStC!

More after the jump...

Apparently, calcium has a taste, and to some people that taste sucks. I dunno, spinach, broccoli, collard greens - 3 of my favorite vegetables there. Coincidentally, I have never broken a bone. Knock on wood.

Tinkering With Dinner brings this really awesome list to our attention: The Omnivore's Hundred. It's basically a scavenger hunt for foodies, but Bill takes it to a new level with by adding items you've cooked. I'm going to post my results to this list tomorrow, so stay tuned.

At Sup, John previews a Mexican food round-up that will appear in the Sentinel's Showtime section tomorrow. He also posts a cool vlog with the owner of the Whole Enchilada, where I am going to lunch today, in fact. I've heard great things.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
