Spinach, Sugar, Sushi, and Smorgie

Why is it that I fall in love with products from stores like Big Lots, TJ Maxx, and Homegoods? Typically they are only there once and you can’t find them again. My latest find, cinnamon sugar white chocolate drizzled kettlecorn, by a company named “Popcorn Indiana” may or may not have been my dinner on Friday. If you live in Indiana and want to send me a few dozen cases for Christmas, let me know! 😉
No it wasn’t really my dinner. I made a spinach omelet and topped it with hummus and nutritional yeast. I know “nooch” is a pretty polarizing food, but I think using it on eggs is the best way to incorporate it!
I worked my late shift last night and tweeted how I was excited to have TJ’s brown sushi for “dinner”…. until I found a big chunk of plastic in one of the pieces!
I e-mailed TJ’s but don’t know if I should return the remaining product or what. Suggestions?
Smorgie.com - Make and Share lists of Yummy
Thanks to my membership in the Foodie Blogroll, I was encouraged to sign up for Smorgie.com, a new site that is designed to help you organize the restaurants you like or what to try in different lists. I played around with it last night, and these are my thoughts:
- Pros: pretty comprehensive list of local restaurants (once you get the hang of it), photos to help you identify the right places
- Cons: not very user-friendly, doesn’t automatically direct you to local places
Overall, I don’t think Smorgie would be a site I would use to choose new places to visit. I already know which restaurants I like, and I understand sharing your “list” with friends, but I would be more likely to use Urbanspoon to get opinions on places I’m not sure about. It also wasn’t the most intuitive site to use, and kept giving me results from other states. It might come in handy if you’re visiting another city to see the locals’ recommendations.
Have you heard of Smorgie? Would you use it?
Ever find a non-food object in your food? I found a piece of a wire brush in my pasta once at a restaurant and they took care of our entire check.
