Some stuff for Saturday
The bugs are horrible right now, especially spiders. You can't walk anywhere without walking into a spider web, inside or outside the spiders are spinning webs like crazy. They're in the corners of walls and the legs of chairs, on and in BBQ grills, in bathrooms for some reason, across doorways and tops of shrubbery. How many times a day do you walk somewhere in or around your house and suddenly feel that tickle that comes after walking through a web?
I like two local St. Louis free food magazines, Sauce and Feast. The first of each month they are available outside of grocery stores and restaurants. But frankly their success has made them almost unreadable due to a million ads surrounding the stories. It's to the point where you can hardly find the story but for the ad squares.
It's pumpkin season in the food world and I'm ready to cry uncle. Do not like pumpkin beer and it's everywhere along with new creations being touted like pumpkin lasagna, pumpkin cake balls, pumpkin slushies, ice cream and on and on. It may be just a bit too much pumpkin. I like pumpkin in pie, but not in everything else.
Reporters on the local St. Louis news stations have been promoting this weekends festivals along with the heat, as well as giving advice on how to keep somewhat cool. When the Greek Fest is mentioned I think of how hot it will be for the men who do all the meat grilling. That has to be awful.
