I was catching up last night with a good friend who is in town this weekend for Colorado College's homecoming, and was excited to hear that she'd started her own food blog.
Yes, I know, personal food blogs are now as ubiquitous as unemployed journalists (hey — that's not funny), but hers does at least have a really fun name, which proves to be a challenge of sorts as well:
Welcome to Onions and Chocolate, where you're invited to try and find a food item that doesn't go well with either.
I believe onions and chocolate are two ingredients in the world that work with every other ingredient in the world. Let me explain. Pick something, anything…artichokes, you say…yep, great with onions; try again. Ummm, ice cream -yep, of course it works with chocolate. As of yet, my theory holds true…no matter what ingredient you pick — I believe that it will match well with onions, with chocolate or with both.
So let me issue a challenge to our readers: Think of something to shatter my friend's theory.
And for the record, stupid answers such as "cat feces" don't count — my friend's husband (and my former surf-rock bandmate) already tried that and he was met with quite the cold stare.
Let's keep it to real foods that people (not my dog) actually eat.
