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.

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.
I’m of the philosophy that if you’re not lucky enough to be currently eating cheese, you may as well as be thinking about the next cheese you’re going to eat — a little advance preparation never hurt anyone, right? And if you’re spending your time thinking about the next cheese you’re going to eat, then it better be something more exciting than your weekly ration of chèvre from the grocery store. (Although I do love you, weekly ration of goat cheese from the grocery store.) What better way to think about the next cheese you’re going to eat than with a handy and oh-so-pretty visual guide? Enter the Charted Cheese Wheel, this cheese-shaped cheese chart of the 65 best pressed curds of milk from around the world is for both the established and aspirational experts among us. Not seeing some of your faves? (I’m looking at you, époisses). The chart’s tiny drawings, color coding, and category breakdown will help you expand your aged milk horizons. I, for one, am going to shake up my weekly dairy run with some new varieties of goat cheese. I wonder if my grocery store carries pantysgawn? (Trust me, just click the link).
The Renegade-avocado hits keep on coming. This time from LA designer, Hadron Epoch. We love their stationary and we LOVE their notebooks even more. Although we don’t really love the way they articulated their evolution. “Our goal is to create a sense of lifestyle for everyday adventurers who are inspired to look outside of their comfort zone for the best experiences in life.” We’re huge experience people. Adventure is our middle name. Comfort zones are for wimps, we agree. But, we yearned for a little more substance in those words. It did come in their craft so maybe we should just shut up and write in these beautifully bound, paper perfect, journals.
Last weeks avocado heavy line up got us to reshuffle the on deck folder and surface this find. MoguMogu food puns it out with the best of them. Wear this avocardio tshirt to the gym and not only own the cardio section but, I bet you score with that avocado toast loving, upper east side, brunch bitch on the elliptical you’ve been eyeing for weeks. Play it cute. MoguMogu would.
