I will post reviews later, but for now, links!

I'm a real fan of Orville Redenbacher's Naturals popcorn, particularly the individual serving bags that I grab from costco (with no funny chemicals, thank goodness). However, I don't know why I didn't think of just brown bagging it-- literally. Mark Bittman writes today about how easy it is to make your own microwave popcorn. Why didn't I think of that? I have some garlic-macadamia oil that needs some use...

I'm hoping I can drag Terry to Findlay Market early on Saturday morning so we can pick up some Ramps at Madison's. I really, really want to make Ramp Compound Butter. I have no idea what I will do with a huge log of ramp compound butter, but how can I resist?

And in case you're wondering, my next reviews are Habanero, Via Vite and a full review of The Quarter Bistro's menu (not just sandwiches). This weekend, I'll do a special dinner theater review and Chalk (finally), with special blog guest, My Mom!

I was also wowed by the microwave popcorn piece - I'd read about it in I'm Just Here for the Food, but forgot about it. Just when I was getting really disgusted with how much microwave popcorn costs, too!

We have done brown bag popcorn since Alton (sigh) did it on a Good Eats episode. The kiddies love it.

Your mom is going to blog?! That is awesome.

See you at Findlay, missed last Sat, had to go Sunday and it was packed! I could not get in the lot. I love market this time of year. Saw the ramps at Madisons two weeks ago, did not look real good and seemed over priced, $10 lb, so I passed. FYI, if How early is early? I'll pickup almond croissants at Greenup.

My mom sent me a recipe for pinenut butter you put on grilled corn, but seriously, what am I going to do with it after I use a little for the corn? I would rather have it in a restaurant...

Can't wait for the upcoming reviews! I went to Via Vite Saturday night for a 2 hour romantic dinner with my hubby. After a bottle of wine, the 22 miles of the marathon I did the next day was a little rough.

kelly-- I remember reading it in Alton's book too, but totally forgot about it.

Mikki-- My mom is going to Chalk with me, so I figured I'd let her give her two cents. She has no idea what a blog is, really, but she's impressed that i have one.

vudutu-- no idea what time early is! Terry has opening night the night before, so "early" could be "11 AM". :) Eat a croissant for me. Sad to hear that the ramps looked bad. If they look nice, I might get some anyway, price be damned.

Julie, well they did not look $10 a lb, let me put it that way. FYI you can always call Bryan @ 513-723-0590 and have him set some aside. We are usually at market between 9 and 12.

Julie, got to Findlay early for us, great week, I love it this time of year. I hope you got your ramps, they looked real good but were up to $12 a lb. Our catch was soft shell crabs, fried in lemon caper butter on Rudis Trader Joes wheat buns with lemon caper mayo, YUM!
