Victoria: January 2008 Archives

Just a quick note to let you all know that I have updated the sidebar, adding some new things and rearranging the order. I wanted to point out that I have put in a feed from my page, which will update automatically. If you don't know about, it's a site that allows you to bookmark pages and articles that you find interesting.

This might only interest history geeks such as myself, but HBO will be airing (March 16 - April 27) a seven-part miniseries on John Adams, based on the David McCullough biography. Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney will star as John and Abigail Adams, and I am pretty sure that casting decision could not be topped.


Clearly someone needs to Tivo this for me. Don't make me wait for the DVDs, people.

[Since I have not yet restored Buddy's login, I will take the opportunity to steal some news he sent us and post it as if it were my own.]

So apparently Bobby Flay, best known as Rob's arch-nemesis, was in Collingswood on Monday night to "throwdown" with the Pop Shop on an issue near and dear to my own heart: grilled cheese.

The Pop Shop offered up the Calvert: "a grilled cheese special featuring Monterey jack cheese, roasted turkey, apple-wood smoked bacon, avocado and balsamic mayonnaise on rosemary focaccia bread." I don't know if anyone from Pop5 has tried this one, since our ranks of meat-eaters have been depleting rapidly.

Bobby Flay's "featured goat cheese, brie, bacon, watercress and green tomatoes piled onto a Pullman loaf." No word on whether he served it with a side of blue corn chips, and covered it with cilantro.

The article doesn't reveal the winner, but all of the quotes favor the Pop Shop. On a personal note, GRILLED CHEESE SHOULD NEVER BE MADE WITH GOAT CHEESE. It had to be said. I love almost all types of cheese. Almost.
