Morning Grind: August 26, 2013

By on August 26, 2013 8:00am EST

Our daily morning roundup of food-related fare from around the web.

7:00 AM - We arrive at the first farmer’s market. It’s a coop of farmers from the South central costal plains of Texas who only farm on odd days in an effort to curb their environmental impact. There are four stands. I see a few oranges, some honey, and a couple bruised peaches. I must have shown up too late and missed all the good stuff. My friend decides to pass on the peaches.

7:30 AM - We pass by a Kroger and laugh at the crowds buying their normal people food.

A day in the life of a food blogger. It’s a hilarious life.


You wrap the salmon tightly in aluminum foil or a cooking bag. Add a lemon wedge, oil and some spices — cilantro, ginger or really, anything that you want. Put the foil package on the top rack and start a normal washing cycle, without adding soap.

This is kind of genius.


If you are looking for a unique romantic dining experience, a visit to the world’s smallest restaurant is in order. Elegant, cozy and set in a historical villa, Solo per Due is a restaurant with seating just for two.

No screaming babies to be found!
