Sugar Sandwich by Buzz Bishop

Just as I do on every Wednesday, today I’m doing another speedlink. This is when I share a handful of blog posts that I thought were worth reading for one reason or another. Most weeks, these collections are eclectic in nature and this week is no exception.

First, we have Buzz Bishop with his submission by way of the Babble blogs. He wrote about some of the weirdest sandwiches of all time that also happen to be among the best. My grandma used to make me sugar sandwiches and, as you can imagine, it was one of the greatest meals for a little hyperactive boy. And I’d have to say that banana and Nutella is better than banana and Miracle Whip.

Continuing with the theme of food, we have Stacey Robinsmith and his 100 foot diet. Yes, you read that correctly. He’s providing an update on his “suburban gardening adventures” and he’s doing it with pictures. The Robinsmith family is busy growing potatoes, carrots, beets, leeks, and zucchinis. He’s also planted two rows of bush beans three times, but thus far he’s only yielded a single bean plant. Perseverance and dedication, my friend!

As much as I love eating out, I realize it’s not exactly the most economical choice. Trent Hamm asserts much the same sentiment, reminding us to get comfortable with cooking. It wasn’t that long ago that I didn’t know how to crack an egg and while I’m certainly no master chef today, I think I’ve made some strides.

It’s the product of one of the most hotly anticipated partnerships in recent automotive history. Enkay Blog takes a look at the brand new 2013 Scion FR-S. It’s fundamentally the same as the Subaru BRZ, since Subaru partnered with Toyota on this joint venture. This sporty coupe is the spiritual successor to the legendary AE86 and I think it has lived up to and exceeded expectations. She’s a beauty.

And finally, we have Henri Junttila of Dumb Little Man. He discusses the eight lies you’ve been told about following your passion. No, it’s not going to be obvious and no, it doesn’t necessarily have to make sense. And no, the money will not follow simply because you do what you love. It’s far more complicated than that and the small steps certainly do matter.
