What's for dinner?

One of my colleagues had a business lunch today at Nada. I asked him to bring me back the barbacoa tacos with a side of the corn tamale. I had one taco and a few forkfuls of the tamale for lunch and I was stuffed. Now, I'm about to have the rest for dinner...

What are you having?

Roast studded with garlic that had cooked all day....in the au jus....then toasted some French baguette.....open faced sandwiches...with a dollop of horseradish mayo on top and a nice green salad.

I had barbacoa tacos from La Mexicana. Just like Nada's, but $2 each. :)

hey Nicci, would a little effort kill you?

We cheated last night and went to Sake bomb. Not my favorite place but havent been there in a while so I thought it was a nice option for something quick. Thank God it was and it was decent. Looking forward to more spring dishes this week.
Tonight is going to be butterflied chicken breasts with veggies (not decided yet on which ones) and a fresh green salad with tomato, cucumber and ginger dressing.

Hey anonymous 9:18 - you mean like the little effort required to create a registered login?

 
at 10:21 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Seriously, One anonymous blogger giving another anonymous blogger
beef (it is a foodie blog) about posting anonymously......tres funny!

 
at 10:26 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

I wonder what requires more effort: posting a snarky personal attack or cooking an entire meal for one's family? Yep, we anons are a rare breed of lazy cowards

 
at 10:54 AM Anonymous incognito and proud said...

No, I think they mean that they are tired of reading what Nicci is having for dinner. Some original posts on a more enlightened topic would be nice. The quality of this blog is rapidly declining and it never really was all that compelling to begin with.

 
at 11:22 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Well, I'd say that the post quality of the anonymous posters such as yourself is dropping, but since you folks have already hit rock bottom, I can't. However, your collective inability to ignore posts that are of no interest to you is on a definite upward trend! Take heart in that, anon scum

 
at 11:27 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'd like to say that the quality of anon-sourced posts is dropping, but it hit rock bottom months ago. Take heart, though - your collective ability to ignore entries of no interest to you is dropping precipitously! Good job, anon scum!

 
at 11:58 AM Blogger vudutu said...

LOL, Humm would that be the pot calling the kettle black?

 
at 12:06 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

LOL-You're posting anonymously you moron! Is the irony of that totally lost on you? We also heard you the first time. If you are going to repeat an idea 2x perhaps you should make sure it is worth repeating.

 
at 12:17 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

well, as stupid as the typical anon is, I figure that had to be said twice, and in two slightly different ways, to have a chance to be understood.

Since then, I have also realized I used big words too.

sorry.

I'll get you a soft serve ice cream to go with your mcnuggets to make it up to you

 
at 12:19 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

before I forget - anon had chicken mcnuggets with apple dippers and a hi-C for dinner. I tried to see what toy he got but he would not let me near it

 
at 12:29 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

You're not making any sense. Please put down the crack pipe. Whether someone chooses to post anonymously has nothing to do with their intellect.(Golly, would they given me my Masters Degree if they realized I posted anonymously on The Foodie Blog?) Where would you even come up with a silly theory like that? Very, very dumb.

 
at 12:35 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Golly, we anons are geniuses!

Let's all go celebrate by partying with Chris Henry down in Over the Rhine! One of the regulars has offered to drive us all home for free as long as we pay for his drinks all night, so we got that going for us too!

 
at 12:36 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Quick poll - what brand do my fellow anons prefer - Luvs or Pampers?

 
at 2:25 PM Blogger Rachel said...

My husband and I had Whole Foods' vegetarian meatloaf, he had a baked potato and I had a sweet potato. Now that nice weather is upon us, we like to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible and more time outside. The Whole Foods meatloaf warms up in the oven in 15 minutes while the potatoes nuke in the microwave. So easy and yet so good.

 
at 2:56 PM Blogger vudutu said...

Oh man this is funny, a classic.

 
at 11:31 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Vudutu is the 'anti-anonymous' anonymous. He just hates anons. Too bad he's a moron.

 
at 8:55 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Good thing I have a Masters degree and am therefore smarter than you all (except other anonymous's). Vudutu definitely does not have a Master's degree.

 
at 10:25 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Again, put down the crack pipe you're not making sense. Please refrain from heavy drugs/drinking before you post.

 
at 12:37 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

I HAVE A MASTERS DEGREE AND I LET EVERYBODY I MEET KNOW IT!!!!!!!!!

And for some reason I'm still flipping burgers for a living. WTF?? Am I a total loser, or what???

 
at 1:55 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

You can flip burgers with or without a Master's degree. I don't think Corey Dillon had a Master's degree.

The important thing to remember, whether you are flipping a burger or needlessly insulting professional journalists......always remember that you (as an anon) have a Master's degree and are smarter, hipper, and just generally better than everyone else. And the others are jealous.

 
at 9:12 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Yes, anonymous at 12:37 you are a total loser and obviously a total loser with way too much time on your hands too.

 
at 10:08 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

How can I be a loser? I have a Master's degree, in case you did not already know, and my delightfully snarky comments ripping the professional journalists who run this blog are the toast of the town. All the lesser readers here know and love me, and wish they could be me.

 
at 10:12 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Did you know that the Enquirer is negotiating with me to take over Stephanie's spot in this blog, so that I can share my delightful snarkiness as a blog author as well as a commenter? Since I have a Master's degree, I am insisting on six figures to sign on. They see me as the "Simon Cowell" of this blog to Rachel, Nicci, and Polly's "Paula Abdul".

 
at 11:43 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

I suggest you find a good therapist who can help you with your delusions.

 
at 11:53 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

I am my own therapist - my Master's degree qualified me for a state license. Saves me a lot of cash. Having free therapy whenever I want it makes me better than you.

 
at 1:04 PM Blogger vudutu said...

LMFAO!

 
at 1:25 PM Anonymous incognito and it's none of your business said...

I'm anonymous at 11:53. Please pay attention to me, love me, validate me. I'm a pathetic loser who needs to feel as if my words mean something. That is why I ramble incoherently on blogs related to food. Won't somebody just listen to me!

 
at 1:35 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

incognito, you clearly do not have a master's degree. or maybe you just need some dinner. maybe you could help Kelly out with her Beans.

Cincy Newsache was dead on his assesment of this blog:

The Foodie Report, 3,098 visits. Grade: D. I get a headache reading this blog. It's a mess. Surely they've heard, "too many cooks spoil the broth." Blogs work best when there's a unified voice, and especially when written by a single person who knows what he/she is talking about. This blog claims six contributors. Aside from critic Polly Campbell, they're all amateurs, and it shows in the low quality of the posts. Traffic should be higher considering the subject is eating, something people do three or more times a day. Comment traffic is moderate to light.



So were the commenters:
Agree with many of Newsache's comments. Foodie should be limited to Campbell if it is to exist at all. What reader cares what staffer got to have dinner with their S.O. last night or lost an ounce of weight? Pop culture blog is pure laziness, and it shows in the lack of comments.

Foodie is terrible, although it once was good. Basically all they chat about are a handful of pricey restaurants, eating dinner with their "S.O.," and way too much vegan/vegitarinan talk. The blog is a great idea, there really isn't a good source for the 'epicurious' in Cincy, but they need better contributors. I hope the editors see your blog post and our comments!! Thanks!
The idea that several vegan/vegetarian skinny girls who eat tofu and lettuce are "foodies" is laughable. Please, Enquirer, kill this blog.

The idea that several vegan/vegetarian skinny girls who eat tofu and lettuce are "foodies" is laughable. Please, Enquirer, kill this blog.
The ones who write the foodie blog in particular come across as a bunch of girls in a high school cafeteria, which is fine if it isn't written under the Gannett masthead. Why don't they just drop the blogs all together and leave the blogging to the amateurs. Perhaps then they'd be able to focus on writing a decent paper.

Interesting

An anonymous coward quoting material from another anonymous coward (the coward who writes newsache) I guess anonymous cowards hold each other in high esteem, or are at least bound together by their shared shameful cowardice

Yeah, I am sure this last comment will get a LOT of serious attention. *uproariously laughter ensues* What a pathetic moron.

 
at 10:36 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Oh TJ, you are just as much of a moron so you might think about closing your pie hole. Mmmmm pie.
Anyway....your "name" means nothing on here.....

 
at 11:29 AM Anonymous TJ Jackson said...

To be called a moron by the likes of the cowardly anonymous folk here is among the highest compliments I could receive. Thank you, you've made my day. That said, I don't care one bit what my name means or does not mean, here or anywhere - and most especially what it means or does not mean to the sniveling ranks of the bravery-challenged anonymous. I look forward to the adoption of required registration here

 
at 12:01 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

What a life....spending your time on here acting like you are somebody that matters.....you are the laughing stock of the blog most of the time,an embarrassment.....nothing more, nothing less. SO you can stop with your self righteousness banter....some of us on here know who you are sorry to say and it's not by choice......

 
at 12:30 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Anon 12:01.....lol....classic

 
at 2:29 PM Anonymous TJ Jackson said...

I have never claimed to be anyone special, and for you to claim otherwise is ludicrous :-). Then again, under your shield of anonimity, you can freely take pot shots at anyone and everyone without fear of reprisal, just as you are here. That's your nature. You anonymous folk are such a sad, pitiable bunch.
