Gourmet Magazine Takes Eater's $25 Offer

Great. Gourmet Magazine jumped all over Eater's $25 offer to shut down:

NYT: [Gourmet, 68, to Die]

Now that's one less $25 check I have a chance of getting.

Mister Cutlets Should Mind His Own Business

This is all I need, Josh Ozersky of the Feedbag criticizing Eater for offering money to food bloggers to pull the plug.

How am I ever going to make any money food blogging if I can't take advantage of this offer? Maybe you don't want your $25, but I'm banking on mine. Don't ruin it for the rest of us, man.

Cereal Theives and Other Matters

After all of the grilling I did yesterday at the tailgate party, I decided to skip dinner. Well, I also had put down about 15 beers and passed out on the couch watching Sunday Night Football, so maybe it wasnt a "decision". I came to work this morning knowing there was a big bag of community cereal in the cupboard that I could chow on, only I arrived to find someone had decided to take it home for the weekend. Probably one of the shipping guys... Sonsabitches!

I like to eat out but I didnt feel like it today

Pizza is good but I was really craving a burger today, so I got a bunch of patties and some charcoal for the grill. I flame broiled a few of those patties for some friends at the Dollfan game. It was sweet.

I figured that sharing that with everyone was about as valuable as learning about Chick-Fil-A opening in Chicago or that people dont always email pics when they say that they will.

I Want My $25

I am a food blogger. That means my writing can only be described as "foodie rambling, blabbering and drooling over ridiculously mundane foodstuffs." Unlike, say, coverage of such things at [sic] celebrity chefs, Guy Fieri, major restaurants, food magazines, broad restaurant trends and issues, and the massive universe of food pop culture.

Because, clearly, writing about celebrity chefs, Guy Fieri, major restaurants and food pop culture is the complete antithesis of rambling, blabbering and drooling over ridiculously mundane foodstuffs. Obviously, Eater can do this much better than me. I mean, they've got stories that I've already read on Gurgling Cod, stories about people putting things in their nose at Dominos, and a rerun of a US Weekly story on Padma being preggers.

I can't compete. So I want my $25.

I ate a turkey sandwich today.

It was really good, but I can't tell you much more about it because I'm not as good at this as Eater.
