It is an exciting week around here, y’all.
A few weeks back, Eick over at So Good put out a call for contributors. He is doing some smart and funny stuff over there, so of course I wanted a piece of the action. I pitched an idea and waited to hear back.
And he picked me! God damn, I was the fat girl all over again and the quarterback just asked me to the prom.
Check out the announcement below:
Lemmonex, Washington, DC: I met this smart, funny, sexy and extremely readable blogger at a DC blogger potluck a few months ago. The writer of the blog Culinary Couture, she is going to branch out a little bit and do a weekly column for So Good. Each Wednesday, she will publish a post called “I Try It So You Don’t Have To.” The idea behind this is just what you’re thinking. She will sample ridiculous, disgusting, intriguing and random food products that you were always afraid to try yourself, and then give you the lowdown.
He is going to be exremely disappointed when he realizes I am not very smart…
The column starts next Wednesday, and I could not be more thrilled to join Eick and the other new contributors. I’ve promised to stay myself…but maybe lay off on the cursing a bit. But don’t fucking worry, things will remain the same here.
This is where you come in…I am looking for ideas. The point of the column is not to eat live snakes or rare exotic delicacies, but every day stuff that can be found in the grocery store. The kind of stuff where when you walk by it on the shelves, you think “who the hell eats that?” I have your answer…me. This whole column idea came to pass a few months back when I wrote about Jimmy Dean pancakes and sausage on a stick. Though the concept revolts me, deep down inside, I secretly believe they may be delicious. I now have the opportunity to try stuff just like this, give you the skinny, and blame the fact that I ate the whole damn box on market research.
Some early ideas from pals have been cookies and cream poptarts, Vienna sausages, and any kind of flavored pork rind. Let me know if you have any ideas and I will happily throw myself on the grenade for you. One exception: Nothing coconut based. There are some things I just won’t do…
