Rebuked!

Rebuked In The Name Of Jesus!

Yeah, Kalen Allen’s shtick includes more than a little racism – and cultural appropriation since he’s not Southern – but he’s still “on point” to many foodies and he’s funny while doing it. And, frankly, even though the Philadelphia-born-and-raised, Los Angeles-living food critic isn’t from The South, just about everything he’s saying could, would, and probably has come out of the mouths of Southerns – White, Black, and/or Whatever – when we’ve seen “gentrified” Southern food recipes.

Eid al-Kafir - National Bacon Day
Its Eid al-Kafir! In Other Words It’s National Bacon Day

That’s right, My Fellow Americans; it’s Eid al-Kafir, the festival of infidels, National Bacon Day – not to be confused with International Bacon Day, which is on the first Monday of September in the US. And, on this day, we come together to celebrate our not being Muslims…with bacon!

Pumpkin Spice Enough For Me

Ah well. In the US at least, it’s Pumpkin Spice season. Worse for some of us, it comes earlier, is more ubiquitous, and last later every year. I know that the spice must flow, but these beautiful ginger babes are pumpkin spice enough for me.
