Some people get annoyed by the occasional political talk here. They hurrumph that such opinions have no business in a food blog.
But some people will also elect, as leader of the free world, a man who calls the President of Russia "Pootie-Poot."
And so, with relish, more about President Shrub's inaugural eats!
-As Texas descended upon our nation's capital, they brought with them (to the dismay of locals, the NYT notes) a new delicacy: merlot with 7-Up, described as a Texas version of sangria. Isn't this a wine spritzer? Just asking.
-Now this is more like it: Swift Report describes the inaugural dinner, a veritable smorgasbord of the corporations that donated most heavily to the Bush campaign. Forget the quail. Dinner featured, among other things, turkey (Pilgrim's Pride, brined in Coca-Cola) with stuffing (made from Dunkin' Donuts), and Snowballs (made of Krispy Kreme) in Hot Fudge (made from Nestlé Nesquick).
