After a recent PB&J in the airport, I’ve had the craving for more. It’s been a few years since I bought a loaf of bread and it’s so worth it! This is cashew butter with strawberry jelly and banana slices. They’re also a great snack to throw in the cooler pouch of my golf bag for a mid-round snack.

Tropical Island Tango Ice Cream

A blend of coconut ice cream & pineapple sherbet with strawberry swirls. 


I’m going to have to check out more from this Purple Cow brand, especially since it was only $2.50.

Ranked Styles of French Fries

This French fry style ranking by Food Republic was getting attention on Twitter last week, even though it was published over a year ago.


There are definitely some flaws to their selection of “styles” as they call them, but I’ll roll with it. If I had to choose my own top 10 from this list it would be:

  1. Sweet Potato Fries
  2. Cheese Fries
  3. Waffle Fries
  4. Tater Tots
  5. Steak Fries
  6. Crinkle Cut
  7. Shoestring/Matchstick
  8. Chili Cheese Fries
  9. Cottage Fries
  10. Potato Wedges

I’ve always though curly fries are overrated so they definitely don’t make my list. A few months ago I ranked fries from local fast food joints.

What would your list look like?


White bread, crunchy peanut butter, strawberry jam, and banana slices from the Eastern Market Shoppe in DTW.

Sofia, Bulgaria in Pictures

I had a wonderful trip to Sofia, Bulgaria last week. I went there to work with my team, HR @ Automattic, which we call The Human League. What made the trip really great was having a local on our team. Petya planned everything for us!


I drank a Heineken and the Sweet Water on the flight from Detroit to Amsterdam.

I tried to stick to Bulgarian beers once I got there.


Other than spending time with my teammates, my favorite part of the trip by far was the food. I was impressed. Took advantage of trying some things I’ve never seen on a menu.
