FOODIE FRIDAY for October 2, 2009

It's finally Friday. Not that that really matters to me anyway, because I'll inevitably spend the weekend completely stressed out due to baseball jitters. My favorite baseball team has clinched a playoff berth, but they have not yet gotten home-field advantage for the division series...and that needs to happen if I'm to see them play next week. And my second-favorite baseball team is still fighting for a playoff spot. So yeah, no rest for the weary this weekend. My mind's on BILFs and playoffs!

I'm also not engaging in any activities that may screw up my baseball karma. See, now's about the time where I start being a good girl and not doing anything, like making fun of hapless teams and/or engaging in unnecessary booing, etc, that will mess up my baseball karma. It's playoff time, and I'd like to do my part to keep the baseball gods happy so that they shine some rays of winning light down upon my Phillies instead of thinking, "Those Phillies fans are jerks. Let's make the Phillies lose in a spectacular and embarrassing fashion; those evil fans don't need another championship so soon."

I assure you, I'm not on crack. (Really, I'm not. Promise!) But whoever wrote the below copy probably was...

I wonder what kind of deserts they offer at Buca di Beppo. Hopefully nothing too, um, sandy.

But wait...


Jack in the Box also serves deserts! Funny, that little Bundt cake doesn't look like it's made of sand...but what's that stuff on the bottom of the cheesecake? Could be a yummy graham cracker crust--or it could be sand... (I'll take the former, please--not the latter!)

Have a great weekend, everyone! I'll be back with more grammar and spelling fun on Monday...if I haven't had a freakin' stroke from worrying about baseball!

* Note: I can't blame the official Buca di Beppo and Jack in the Box websites for these errors; these mistakes came from a coupon website. Dummies!

Maybe they use cacti for their free deserts. They could grind them up into a pulp-like cake batter and decorate the tops with the needles in festive geometric or floral shapes.

Haha! Very creative!

That would make it their dieters' delight, right?

That's right...sand has very few calories, I'd imagine... :)
