FOODIE FRIDAY for June 12, 2009


Although the misspelling that KIM found is a pretty atrocious one (c'mon, how the hell hard is it to spell funnel correctly?), and atrocious spelling errors tend to make me very, very cranky, I've gotta say I'm pretty thrilled that it looks like some grammar vigilante actually tried to correct the mistake. (And it wasn't me, I swear--I've never seen this sign in person!)

It's Friday...and if you've had a crazy/busy week like I've had, then you deserve a sweet treat. (For the record, I'm having a 100-calorie pack of Oreo Cakesters.) But please...eat a sweet treat whose name is spelled correctly, OK? :)

I tried to think up what a "funnal" could be...but I think it's too early for that.

I hear ya. It's 11:30 and it's STILL too early for me to think of any particularly witty commentary. Thank goodness it's Friday...

...I am so happy it's "funnaly" Friday! :)

*shakes head after Googling that particular spelling and seeing SCADS of that error*

Very glad that my daughter had her first (properly-spelled) funnel cake this weekend - we asked her if she wanted ice cream or something that was like a donut - she chose the donut. (How else would one describe funnel cake to a 2-year-old?)

@ LadyStyx: Oh, that's just SAD. This is NOT a hard word! *sigh*

@ Winona: Awww! Too cute! I haven't had funnel cake in forever. I'm kinda missing it now...
