Butter-Coated Parmesan-Crusted Kitchen Shoes #FridayRecommends

Due to popular request, here is a photograph of me going naked down a waterslide entirely coated in twenty pounds of best butter.

Yes, it was in such demand they put it on Shutterstock.

May we continue now?

Thank you.

Friday RecommendsNow, here’s a site that is right up my alley: The Food Charlatan. How could I not love a person whose introduction begins: Isn’t eating just so much fun?? I don’t remember how I hyper-linked onto her site, but it was specifically to this article about Parmesan Crusted Zucchini. I kindasorta made this dish, only I used squoodles instead of zucchini rounds, and they were belicious! I’ll post it next week, if I don’t fergit.

ANYWAY, I got another one of those random requests for links, and this one beats the band.

I’m Zoey, and I’m the editor of thebabbleout.com; I wanted to reach out to you after coming across this article of yours: https://marianallen.com/2016/07/prides-children-obsessions-birth-bookreview/
We recently put together an in-depth resource (~6K words) about kitchen shoes, which received over 1000 social shares. It’s quite different to the other articles you see on the web about this topic.
Would you consider linking to my page in the article of yours I mentioned above?

No, Zoey, I won’t link to your page about kitchen shoes in an article reviewing that most excellent book, PRIDE’S CHILDREN:PURGATORY, which I can’t recommend highly enough. But I did visit The Babbleout and it looks pretty nifty, if you have a baby or like to run (in fact, the entire site screams Not you, MomGoth! So not you!). But if you have a baby or if you … what’s that word … don’t tell me … Oh, yeah — exercise … The BabbleOut is a site for you.

No, I don’t sell ad space or affiliate links; I am not compensated in any way for linking to other sites. I do it purely because I want to. Or, if not, not.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Someone recommends something entirely inappropriate that nevertheless intrigues your character.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Eating and feeting go together…I guess, but I don’t blame you for taking a pass. Here’s hoping you have a great Friday.

    The blogosphere has me fending off the scam ‘likes’ from outlook.com fake-sounding monikers; thanks for defending me against kitchen-shoe fetishists.

    We bloggers get the oddest requests sometimes – I wonder who thought that appopriate, or whether any human thought was involved proximately at all.

    I am TRYING – there just hasn’t been the energy I need because of the moving thing, but I KNOW I’m behind, and we’re slowly wending our way through the mine-field, and might be settled in about 2 months if all goes well. Or even sooner. I can’t wait. Fortunately, the serializing at Patreon continues; I’m just behind on the other posts. I think the term is ‘shell-shocked.’
