Welcome to the roundup!
As we head into the weekend, why not surf over to The Crepes of Wrath and pick up some cooking ideas? Like this decadent-sounding morsel, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Blondies:
Lest you think The Crepes of Wrath only deals in sugary treats, allow me to point out the new entry for Pasta e Fagioli.
If you'd rather play with your food than eat it, Dark Roasted Blend has some whimsical food art photography:
Next, Michael Totten gives his take of the current Swine Flu panic in a rare, lighthearted post:
KABUL (Reuters) - Afghanistan's only known pig has been locked in a room, away from visitors to Kabul zoo where it normally grazes beside deer and goats, because people are worried it could infect them with the virus popularly known as swine flu.
The pig is a curiosity in Muslim Afghanistan, where pork and pig products are illegal because they are considered irreligious, and has been in quarantine since Sunday after visitors expressed alarm it could spread the new flu strain.
Keep reading 'till the punchline.
If you're in the Blue Point, Long Island area on May 16, you might want to join the tattooed heroes of Rescue, Ink for the 1rst Anniversary celebration for Forgotten Friends of Long Island. They are raising money for the care of elderly or sick companion animals. These are good guys doing good stuff. Stop by if you can. Even better- adopt a new friend.
I guess no roundup post would be complete without some gorgeous photography by Rick Lee:
