Weekend Link Love – Edition 57

Forget about the Iron chefs, Alton Browns, and Rachel Rays; learn from the original. Cheeseslave writes a delightful tribute to Julia Child, a TV Chef who wasn’t afraid to cook with fat.

Planning on living a hundred years? Be sure to save enough money! The Washington Post reports that Larry Haubner may lose his savings before he loses his health. He’s 107 and still pumping iron!

America is growing fatter and waiting time at the emergency room is growing longer. Coincidence? Via Trust for America’s Health and Healthbolt, respectively.

If your lust for bacon wasn’t satisfied by last week’s Bacon & Scallops recipe, try Food Renegade’s Bacon and Avocado Egg Salad.

Or if bacon’s not your thing, if you desire more fruits and veggies, the beautiful food photography of Primal recipes from Joyful Abode will be sure to make your mouth water.

The Onion’s recent “food and dining” issue contains a smorgasbord of satirical gems. Read the latest and fakest about Taco Bell, Frito-Lays, Keebler Elves, Little Debbie, and one complex food pyramid.

And finally, a cautionary tale of alcoholic vervet monkeys, courtesy of the BBC.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I just made a $25 donation to to help Larry Haubner be able to stay in his assisted living facility.

    What an inspiration he is to living a healthy lifestyle! 107 and not taking any medications. How many people half his age can say that?

  2. Aww, thank you so much for including my blog in your link love!

    Also, I love The Onion… their “articles” always have me snickering.

  5. Haha. :) It’s okay. I’m Joyful Abode.
    And bacon is forthcoming, actually… I’m not all veggies and fruit.
