Weekly Wrap

Welcome to a new addition to the blog: the Weekly Wrap. Random links, notable news and a few other items that merit mention.

The$4.5 billion childhood nutrition bill passed the Senate yesterday ($3.2 billion is aimed at improving the quality of school lunches). The New York Times Magazine asks if our children are really hungry. E. coli contamination strikes yet another factory farm. How long before an overzealous food inspector shuts down a kid’s lemonade stand here? Taste of the Market is this weekend. Eric will have more edamame at the market, and you need to buy some. CoMo Homestead nicely spotlighted Fahrmeier Farms. I had a very nice chimichurri steak sandwich at Broadway Brewery (their Saison is very nice as well).

  1. Funny that you just posted this because we just got back from Broadway Brewery, I had the chimichurri steak sandwich and Saison (neither of which because of this post). The sandwich was so so, meat was a little tough. Saison was nice, but what is up with their carbonation issues? Wife had the ESB (again, pretty good for the style) and I also had the porter, and ALL had carbonation issues. Seems like a place in business for close to a year now, would have figured this out? The beer would be SO much better if it actually remained carb’d while drinking it. Maybe it’s just me?

  2. Grassfed beef can be a little tough – mine the other day was tender enough, though. What is inarguable is the carbonation issue, which is still keeping nice beers (Saison, Rye IPA, etc) from reaching their true potential. One would think they could fix that through trial and error, but they haven’t yet.

    I like the place overall, but do think they have an uncertain road ahead of them.
