DailyDirt: Eating Like A King...
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Some people eat to live. Others live to eat. Since there's a pretty wide range between those two extremes, here are just a few quick links to some examples of interesting eating habits.
- The National Archives has a historical record of, among other things, the favorite foods of many US Presidents. Richard Nixon's last meal at the White House was some pineapple slices with cottage cheese and a glass of milk..? [url]
- Airlines have tried to offer healthier food options for travelers, but a lot of flyers are sticking to salty snacks and comfort foods. Alaska Airlines' best-selling meal is a quarter-pound cheeseburger. [url]
- Texas has recently ended its tradition of offering a "last request" meal to inmates on death row after a state lawmaker complained about a meal request that seemed excessive. The last meal that did it: two chicken-fried steaks with gravy and sliced onions; a triple-patty bacon cheeseburger; a cheese omelet with ground beef, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and jalapenos; a bowl of fried okra with ketchup; one pound of barbecued meat with half a loaf of white bread; three fajitas; a meat-loverís pizza; one pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream; a slab of peanut-butter fudge with crushed peanuts; and three root beers. (The meal wasn't eaten.) [url]
