Popeyes chicken sandwich

Want to hear something weird?

Last Friday Eliza and I went to New Jersey and had to grab a bite to eat in the late-afternoon. We stopped at a Popeyes in Wayne, NJ – it was on the way, and neither of us had ever had it – and we both ordered the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. The person at the register sort of chuckled that we ordered them and yelled to the back “ANOTHER! chicken sandwich”. We thought it was odd but didn’t think anything more of it at the time.

We then come home after a weekend at the beach to learn that the sandwich is a viral sensation. For a combination of reasons it has become one of the most popular sandwiches in the US over the last week. And we may have gotten some of the few remaining ones before all Popeyes began to run out of chicken. So weird.

Canning links from Marisa McClellan

Marisa is excited:

Oh friends. Canning season is on so hard right now. I have 25 pounds of apricots spread out on baking sheets on my living room floor, and I have four pounds of super ripe peaches on my kitchen counter. There are dilly beans fermenting on the dining room table, and I put a finished half gallon of kosher dills into the fridge. I both love and am totally overwhelmed by this time of year.

Home office 2014

Due to an influx of work at Plain I found myself working from home this weekend. It wasn’t so bad. Great view, good Cornflakes.

Since the garden is beginning to bear produce I’m beginning to pull together recipes that I’ll need. Zucchini bread via Marisa McClellan and Zucchini Breakfast Casserole via Simply Recipes are two of those recipes.

Food in jars – learning to can food

It is no secret that Eliza and I have a lot of learning to do regarding our gardening adventures. Our biggest problem to solve, it seems, will be what to do with all of the produce. Marisa McClellan has our solution. is her Web site that has a single mission: “a campaign to teach people to can”.

Marisa, we’ll be referencing Food In Jars a lot in the coming months. Thanks for the hard work involved in putting it out there.
