    I want to eat the sandwich as well..but the egg looks a bit runny….so plenty of tissues required!


  • Millie l Add A Little

    Love this list Tracy! Have a great weekend 🙂

  • Emily @ Life on Food

    Oh French Laundry. Someday…

  • Allyn

    I think that whole rubber band cake thing is super weird. It falls into the category of the proper way to eat an apple (bottom to top). Maybe they’re the “best” ways, but… no.

    • Tracy

      It just seems like it would cut right through the frosting/cake…and then part of the cake would taste like rubber band!

  • Beverlily

    I’ll never look at Grey Poupon mustard the same way again!

  • Ashley

    I always love your Friday lists! I’m from Ohio, so I have huge pride and affection for Jeni Britton-Bauer and love that article (and ALL of her ice creams!). And after reading about your trip to St George, I was so fixated on trying some of their products that I bought a small bottle of Spiced Pear liquor last night. The terroir gin is next on my list! Thanks!

    I’ve only gotten to #3 but I have to say something about the whole cake thing. First of all, I’m getting less cake this way! And what if I have a creamy frosting, I’m not putting a rubber band around that mess. And obvs, the taste of rubber band. I haven’t felt this strongly about a youtube video in awhile 😉

    DUDE. Some of those Ikea hacks are SO smart! I want cat passageways made out of shelving! Also- “Whoa, Black Betty, bangled yams” is how I will sing that song forevermore.
