This Week in Food: Pexican Cuisine, Urban Homesteading, and iPhone Calories!

Another fantabulous week at Stick a Fork in It, with stories suited for the Diggers, Forkers, and Know Nothings among you! Highlights after the jump!

Anne Marie hung with Maw'N'Paw Kettlekorn, found a delicious quick-order pita in Fullerton, and gave Parties by Panache another day in our OC sun after their game effort in Cupcake Wars.

I wrote on a crazy lawsuit filed against Landmark Steakhouse, cried about the closing of Wadiya (Southern California's only remaining Sri Lankan restaurant), reported on the latest in the "urban homestead" copyright scandal, and went on a weird (even by my low standards) mixing-and-matching of Persian and Mexican food.

Dave gave us five beer cocktails for New Beer's Day, had a missed connection at Carl's Jr., while Edwin found a bottle-your-own-olive-oil store in Irvine, and went On the Line with the Sushilicious guys.

Finally, Michelle found an iPhone app that counts the calories in food photos, gave us OC's mead maiden, and followed the new Extreme Couponing show.

Happy eating!

Let's see. Javier P. Teen showed up down here instead of at the LA Weekly, the obvious choice for his post-teen Gluttonectomy. It seemed goofy, so you gotta' wonder why. Hmmm (wondering). Then he does this and that (I'm guessing) and God knows what and a few days ago posts about lunch with a cute fellow intern. That's fine; are we not men? But his whiny report was too much about being underpaid and overtaxed (unlike the rest of us). Cute girl not impressed, if I'm the expert on women that I think I am. (Note: some of these remarks are intended to be humorous.)

Now comes El Gustavo de la Semana, and he don't even, you know, like mention the Kid's contribution. Again: hmmm (wondering). God, I hate these guys who say "Hmmm"!

OK. My guess is that Post-Teen Glandster be about to depart for some other friendly confines. I recommend an internship buying pre-packaged-food concepts for Mighty WASP Sandra Lee in the Albany-Schenectady-Troy metro area. Requires driver's license and 9 wpm.
