Pimento Cheese Sandwich Crisis at the Masters

A near-crisis situation on Tuesday as a pimento cheese shortage strikes the Masters Tournament in Augusta.  A severe shortage of the famed green-plastic-wrapped pimento cheese sandwiches ensued after a thunderstorm knocked out power at the sandwich processing center.

Fortunately, power is back on now and the sandwich pipeline in flowing once again.

Kevin's BBQ Joints

A guy named Kevin has come out with a pretty good barbecue website called Kevin's BBQ Joints.  On the main page, you can enter in a zip code and get a list of barbecue restaurants in the area (with the option to filter out chains).  And, there's a regular feature called My Favorite BBQ Joints where folks with serious barbecue credentials (like Drew Robinson, the executive chef of Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q, and John T. Edge of the Southern Foodways Alliance) itemize their favorite barbecue joints, accompanied by pictures that will make you seriously hungry.

As I said a few days ago, if the asparagus is in, the strawberries can't be too far behind.  Boone Hall Farms' U-Pick strawberry fields are now open for the season, and the boys and I picked three buckets full this afternoon.  
A strawberry pie is in the works tonight!
