Who wants a Jell-o shot when liquor soaked gummy things are at the party? The answer is no one and I cannot wait until the Jimmy Buffett concert this Summer to explore the hundreds of tasty combinations!
Look how they get all hulked up after 5 days of soaking!

I was tied for 7th on Neatorama's top submitters for February contest! (I got 5 posts to the front page) I know you don't care but it has brought a few new readers to Suburban Food (for thought) and has got me to work harder to make this blog better.
Mark Bittman, food writer for the NY Times, was told by his doctor that he was 35 pounds over weight, developing high cholesterol, had borderline high blood sugar, bad knees and sleep apnea. Bittman was told that a good option for him would be to go vegan. A food critic and lover of all five food groups, knew that would not work for him. He did the next best thing, go vegan until 6PM. A few months of sticking to a strict vegan diet before 6PM and then eating anything he wants for dinner he had lost the weight and dropped to normal levels on all of the docters tests. Interesting idea, forces you to eat fruits, veggies, and whole grains and you still get to splurge for dinner...nice
