The sad truth is that when you read about Haiti anymore, you're usually reading some dismal statistics or some dismal lionizing of Sean Penn by Sean Penn. So thank Tate Watkins for the change of pace over at Medium today: a look at Haiti's newest food trucks, from those serving basics like egg sandwiches to a cart selling something called a Chuck Norris burger, which Watkins somehow neglects to describe. (As it turns out, it's just a cheeseburger with "special sauce," which the truck's menu somehow neglects to describe. That's it, I'm phoning Haiti.)
- From Saveur, here's a round-up of Mexican appetizers that's basically just a slideshow of the daily diet of my dreams. But you have to make it past the first slide, which is the stuff of nightmares. Like, I may not speak Spanish, but I'm pretty sure that says "house of dragons," and I'm doubly sure that a dragon house is a thing better avoided. Especially if that's where the creepy dungeon lighting on that guacamole is coming from.
- Are you a crazy person? If so, this thing I accidentally just came across may be of interest to you: make-your-own sprinkles (a.k.a. jimmies)! The author was nice enough to lay out a few reasons why you might want to make your own sprinkles, if you were wondering, but I feel like if you're asking that question you're probably already out. (As a crazy person myself, I'm so far in; gonna start jimmying everything in sight.)
- You know what they say: One man's trash is another man's "slightly grape-y" brownie that looks like it definitely costs a few bones. (via NPR)
