CB&J&B

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. 

Delicious!

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?

PB&J

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!

Beer

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.

Food

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.

Bacon mac & cheese and grilled chicken avocado sandwich at DTW.
