It’s far too early Saturday morning, but I went to bed pretty early, so I’m up. I’m headed to Destin Beach in a few hours with my pal Lindsay. We figured it would be a good weeked to go because the oil slick has not yet hit there.
Anyway, it’s been a while since I posted any newsy items, so here it goes…
* Some easy, tasty spaghetti dishes from the Today Show. Mmmm pasta.
* Top camp fire cooking tips. I love cooking over a fire. I haven’t done so in ages, but I was a Girl Scout from about 5 to 18, so I had plenty of chances. My favorites were breakfast burritos and steak, though I do have a soft spot for mountain pies and obviously s’mores.
* Tips to properly grill sausage by Michael Ruhlman. I actually really needed help with this. I feel like I am always burning the outside in order to properly cook the inside.
* 10 ways to bake and cook with coconut. My personal favorite use of coconut — Samoas, the Girl Scout cookie.
OK, time to get some breakfast and prepare for the two hour sojourn to Destin. Also, I will be momentarily posting a bruschetta blog post that I wrote earlier this week during my blog hiatus.
