Sometimes it seems like everyone on the freakin' planet has a food blog. Still, when someone you really don't expect to have a food blog -- like, say, a baseball player who casual fans of the might have trouble placing -- and it's pretty entertaining, it's worth noting.
So it is with Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Andre Ethier
, whose Dining with 'Dre
food blog a colleague passed along to me. It's pretty darn good, even if Ethier (or whoever is in charge of uploading stuff) can't get photo proportions right. Here's a recent entry on a Phoenix restaurant called the Fry Bread House:
First up was the hominy stew with beef, and if anyone knows Mexican food, they know that this is a staple in many dishes. It came with a clear broth with onions and "native seasonings," they say, with big chunks of beef and fat hominy. Now that's a soup. It might be my new favorite soup of all-time or at least a close second to menudo. This soup alone was worth the trip here, so who cares about the main food I ordered?
We need to talk one of the Cardinals into blogging for Gut Check.
