…and today’s secret ingredient is…well, you already know. This is just for dramatic effect. Cue music!
I ran across an article on MSNBC.com about Iron Chef America. It spoke about how the contestants are given an idea of what the secret ingredient will be during the day of competition. Peter Kelly, who defeated Iron Chef Bobby Flay, chronicles his journey from the first call from the Iron Chef Producers to the end of the competition.

Whoever gets the baby doll is said to have good luck and prosperity for the rest of the year, and is also responsible for purchasing next year’s King Cake. I had no idea the doll was so tiny. I took a picture of it sitting on my iPod mini for scale. I see it now, the doll stuck up a toddler’s nose, never to be found again.
Dancing Baby, haha. It …
I went to Ride Snowboard’s website today to check out some gear and this splash page came up. It made me hungry. Do I see mash potatoes and gravy over crinkle cut fries under the Canada link? Oh those crazy Canadians!
My friend brought me back a jar of Airborne brand Manuka honey from her New Zealand Trip. This ain’t no honey bear honey. It has been touted to hold powerful medicinal properties like fighting common cold symptoms, psoriasis, ulcers, burns, and so much more. It also tastes mighty good.
