Kristen Roby, the resident food blogger on my local newspaper’s web site, has been blogging recently about meat cakes. These are food items that look like cakes but are actually meat. While I was unsure of the idea, they look great and probably taste good – as long as you are not the person who has to have all your food separate before eating.
All the talk of meat cakes made me think of my 17 year old son and his vegetarian girlfriend. Ben threw said girlfriend a surprise birthday party when her family returned from a trip to the Jersey shore. The irony was not lost on me that the vegetarian’s birthday cake looked like a large hamburger.
