also, i was totally blown away tonight, by the best dessert idea i've ever heard. Donut fries. little donut sticks roughly the size and shape of french fries, with raspberry sauce to dip them in.
Maybe it takes a chef type, and specifically one who is, like me, fond of food that looks like other food, to be so struck by what a neat idea this is. I honestly want to try it out now, and put them in a little red and white striped paper diner fry basket.
bonus third thing: i also came across breakfast sushi. (eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, and rice) f the haters, i am going to make mexican sushi someday, and i will eat it and smile and be very proud of my creativeness.
