Food in 2012

Hungry as a Horse

Who uses a pasta measuring tool that looks like this?  Awesome people:
Just add Bertolli

Of course, owning something like this would only make sense if you have an audience for your pasta cooking.  I imagine I would use it once, put it in a drawer and rediscover it the next time I move.

Here is the link to the designer's webpage.

Dining Table

Once you've placed your cooked pasta on a plate, you need a place to eat it.  While a lot of people will go with something as simple as a table or their lap while sitting in front of the TV, people that are awesome enough to use a custom pasta portioning tool probably eat their meals off of something as cool as this dining table:
Honey, can you mow the table?
(Grumble, grumble) When the game is over (grumble, grumble) 

 Looks like it would be large enough for six diners


This table reminds me of the natural grass bed featured in the 2002 film Secretary.

 Why is the grass always greener on my neighbor's table?

All you need when you own this table is Hank Hill to handle the upkeep.  Or, more realistically, I think you would need either overhead lighting that simulates sunlight setup on a timer or wheels on the bottom of this to move it outdoors regularly.  Plus, you would need to think about watering.

Even the name that the desiger(s) who came up with this table chose to call this item, the picNYC table, is clever.


 
TL;DR: You'll find two well designed things that relate to food and dining in this post.

  14. I'm sure there's a joke about Trojan's and pasta in here somewhere...

    As for the table, don't get grass stains on your knees if you own one - people will give you disapproving looks.

Ăn chay tốt cho sức khỏe của bạn và điệu trị một số bệnh tiểu đường, cao huyết áp, tim mạch, loãng xương, viêm khớp, ăn chay Áp dụng chế độ ăn chay có thể giảm tới một nửa nguy cơ các khối u phát triển, các nhà nghiên cứu cho biết. Bạn cho là chỉ có thịt, cá mới có thể cung cấp đầy đủ protein cần thiết cho cơ thể. Suy nghĩ này không hòan toàn đúng. chất đạm không chỉ có trong thịt mà chưa trong nhiều thức ăn khác. Đúng hơn là thức ăn chay thường hàm lượng chất xơ, Mg, K, vitamin C, E, folate, carotenoids, flavonoids và các chất hóa học từ đậu khá cao, hơn khẩu phần ăn mặn.
