Erin Cooks The Internet: October 25, 2007

It Turns You Into a Real Life Green Monster!Halloween Cap’n Crunch (officially known as Cap’n Crunch’s Halloween Crunch) is now available in grocery stores, if you’re lucky enough to find it on a shelf. I feel that it’s my obligation to point out that not only does it turn your milk green, it will also turn your hands green if you decide to have a “secret” after work snack. Obviously green dyed fingers is a dead give away. That sneaky Cap’n will get you every time.

Every morning Chris reads the Metro on our fun filled ride on the Subway. I usually just read whatever book happens to be in my bag at the time. But this morning Chris found a great article detailing a new book, The Take-Out Menu Cookbook, written by Meredith Deeds and Carla Snyder that caters to those of us who enjoy take-out food a little too much. Super Secret Bread Conspiracy?This cookbook features the top 200 take-out and carry-away dishes from the 12 most popular ethnic cuisines: French, Italian, Spanish, German, Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Middle Eastern/Moroccan, Indian, Eastern European/Jewish, Greek, and Japanese. By focusing in on the most ordered dishes the writers aim to create authentic, healthy, and delicious recipes that are not only approachable but may also make you break up permanently with your delivery person.

Another new product that I picked up at the store is Pepperidge Farm Blueberry Breakfast Bread. I searched all over the place online to provide you with a link to check it out but I couldn’t find one anywhere. But here’s photographic evidence that it does in fact exist — not just in my bread obsessed mind. It’s very tasty and way more fun to have than a boring bowl of Grape Nuts. At this rate I’m going to have to create some kind of grocery store scavenger hunt.
