Hello Good People! Welcome to All Things Thursday!
It’s been an interesting week. I visited a highly questionable Burrito Box, made some reduced fat buffalo wings, and read up on some ridiculous food news. Wanna know what I found? Lean in closer and I’ll tell ya.
Apparently, there’s a McDonald’s in Pittsburg of the “highest” caliber. It seems that if you went through the drive thru and uttered the phrase “I’d like to order a toy,” your bag would contain a burger, fries and a side of heroin. Now, that’s some kind of Happy Meal! But don’t expect McDonald’s to do everything for ya…needles and lighters are not included. (Huffington Post)
As you might know, the Super Bowl is just a few days away. If you’re having people over perhaps you can impress them with a Snackadium. What’s that, you ask? A Snackadium is a collection of snacks and appetizers made to look like a football stadium. I’m pretty sure I don’t want to put in that kind of work but if you do, be sure to send me an invite.

On the recipe front…
Been thinking about making some Homemade Toffee for a while. I see a bacon version in my future. (Damn Delicious)
I might’ve mentioned before that I’m crazy about peanut butter. If you are too, join me in exploring 11 Recipes to Honor Peanut Butter. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cupcakes look amazing! (Food52)
White pizza has never been my favorite, but this one has bacon. Perhaps, the tides are turning. (How Sweet It Is)
Chicken Fried Potatoes. Why didn’t I think of that? (Spoon Fork Bacon)
I love to snack on chips and dip not just on Game Day, but any day. Shake it up a bit with 11 Game Changing Chips and Dips. (Food52)
That’s it for me, folks. Report to your Super Bowl battle stations. Here’s to hoping your Game Day eats are better than the actual game.
I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
