Fast Food Nation

I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, but I decided to finally read this book having had it sit on the shelf for a few years. I’m glad I read it, but as someone who regularly eats in the US I am not sure if I should be glad or freaked out. The book is an interesting study in how industrialization without proper quality controls can have some pretty terrible side effects. I’m glad to live in a jurisdiction where we actively test for food quality and safety.

The book is a good read, and I’d recommend it to people without weak stomaches.

Holy bread emergency Batman!

Despite Steven’s promises of a return of the spicy fruit buns, they are completely absent here in the US. Apparently not all Christian nations do hot cross buns, which is a new surprise for me. This is an emergency however, as I love them, so I need someone to mail me some ASAP. Send them to:

Thanks. Failing that, has anyone got an idiot proof recipe they want to share? My previous one was:

  • Go to freezer
  • Get bun out
  • Nuke it for 15 seconds
  • Shove in mouth

The secret to this is to buy small buns so they fit in your mouth. I’m waiting by the mailbox now, so you better get with the mailing…
