Good food is like gold to us. When we happened upon GoldieRox’s mash-up of these two coveted items we knew we had to share. Roxanne Rajcoomar, as she’s more formally know in the world of precious gems, made a move few people have the guts and self-awareness to call their life. After reaching the 1% in the precious jewels knowledge game, she jumped ship to feed her soul. That food just happened to be food. It’s no wonder the output from her world eating tour, getting back to her love of food, netted this Burger Locket Pendant and an equally awesome French Fry necklace. I think her old job and refound love make quite the happy meal. Judging by the package from the UK on my coffee table @MissusTasty feels the same.
More Design Stuff
We’re a sucker for a good pun. That peeps was a double pun. We met Witty Gritty, Meredith & Melinda the mother/daughter team behind the designs, a couple weeks ago at the Renegade Craft Fair’s Brooklyn edition. With Father’s Day right around the corner we couldn’t help but serve up this gem to treat your pop to a pop card. There’s a few other awesome options the ladies have on tap for dad’s special day. Plus, they have a catalog for just about any occasion you need a “snail mail” somethin’ somethin’ for the someone.
While we’re on the topics of BBQ and Hawk Krall this week. Daniel Delany, of Briskettown fame, contracted a limited edition Delaney Barbecue T-Shirt for his smoking hot (literally) bbq empire. It’s limited edition run all but sold out as quickly as Daniel’s fried chicken pop-up feast did last summer. We’re hoping Hawk and Briskettown will do a re-release this summer or collaborate again sooner than sooner.
Tagging on to yesterdays post, we think these napkins should be mandatory for all slice joints to provide as mouth wipers. We found these Pizza Love Party Napkins in Walmart of all places. There are good things to be found in places you’d never expect, case in point. The genius behind these paper proclamators is a company called, Creative Converting. They make eating extra fun and take parties to a level your five year old, and maybe your 35 year old, will love. Next time you spin up a delivery pie for your Friday night pre-game party, drop these on the table. We promise they will pay off all night.
My mom just had a way of mixing the powdered cheese with the hot butter and then coaxing them to cling to the boiled elbow noodles patiently waiting in her stainless steel Sears farberware sauce pan. No matter what your relationship to cheese and macaroni they are an undeniably inseparably pair. These days the fanciest of childhood treats can run up into the triple digits when paired with foie gras, caviar or gold flakes. Under the most glamorous of cloaks the working mans duo is still about one thing which is illustrated perfectly in this Mac to My Cheese Card. Some things are meant to be together and stay together. Much like the comfort of Mac and cheese, this card can be there for the recipient (or you) when your mom can’t. We know it’s not the same but it’s better than nothing.
