Celebrity chef attempts DIY Pringles

Pringles are my favorite chip. In this Bon Appétit video, chef Claire Saffitz attempts to make them herself. Even if she nailed the form and the flavor, I don't think her technique would scale in my household. Admittedly, once I pop, I can't stop. Read the rest

Pretty-looking, RFID-blocking passport and ID card sleeves

I got a new Passport and Passport card, time for new RFID sleeves.

The new REAL ID stuff in the US is a pain. My California drivers license still doesn't emit any RF I know of, but my US Passport, Passport card and a few other forms of government ID I sometimes carry do.

This lovely-to-look-at set includes 10 card sized sleeves and 2 passport for $7.29. More than I'll likely need.

This single potato chip costs $11

Swedish brewery S:t Eriks created a box of fancy potato chips that costs 499 kr (~$56). There are five chips in each box. Obviously a marketing/fundraising gimmick, but they certainly sound like quite the artisanal chip. Ingredients include: matsutake, truffle seaweed, crown dill, Leksand onion, India Pale Ale wort, and potatoes gathered from a "hillside in Ammarnäs, a steep, stony slope in a south-facing location where almond potatoes are cultivated in very limited numbers."

They made just 100 boxes and sadly they have all sold out (with proceeds going to charity). Oh well, there are always Pringles.
