Twitter #Weekendeats highlights: Here come the unique eats
Some Mondays, during our #weekendeats chat, a clear theme emerges. Maybe people felt like pasta over the weekend, or cravings for chocolate were insatiable, but this week, things got interesting. There wasn't so much a theme as there was an appreciation for unique eats. Here are the highlights:
First, let's start with a snack. How about some chocolate-dipped Ritz crackers with chopped pecans from JustJennRecipes.com? It's a different kind of combination for those who like to mix their salty and sweet flavors. If you're looking for more snacks, the Orange County fair seems like a good place to start. Comiendoenla.com shared a blog post with plenty of pictures of deep fried Oreos and a slew of other goodies for gluttons from the fair.
Maybe you're a fan of classic Jell-o in cherry or orange flavors. The blog YkBUrban shared a picture of an assortment of jellies but in some unconventional varieties. Check out this picture from YkBUrban of wolfberry and black sesame flavored jellies.
Rounding out the list of unique eats was the blog MyLastBite.com with a picture of golden brown sugar cane fried pigs feet and a video of a plate of live, squirming octopus from the blog Dishing Up Delights.
After the chat, we ask people to upload pictures of their #weekendeats to our What did you eat this weekend? photo gallery. We'll feature some of the photos here on Daily Dish, so be sure to check back for more #weekendeats and #foodporn throughout the week.
Hope to see everyone next Monday morning on Twitter! It's sure to be a drool-worthy good time.
