Gastronome Musings is back as well this weekend and I am very excited to finally be able to post some of my favorite web finds as I have not been able to do so over these past few weeks due to the move.
It is with some sadness that I am not able to be in San Francisco this weekend for Foodbuzz's Festival. This move really took it out of me this time and due to it, I was unable to attend. However, I am looking forward to hearing all about it from all of my blogging friends who were able to attend.
Speaking of Foodbuzz, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all my reader's who may have sent some buzz our way as our welcome back post was on Foodbuzz's Top 9 yesterday!
In case you missed it, here is what was featured on Gastronome Tart this past week:

How many of us have found live critters in our purchased food? Okay, very few. Alright, how many have found dead critters in our purchased food? A few of you? Yes, insect parts in your PB & J does count.
How about if you were to go to Costco, purchase a tub of organic greens and then see eyes peeking out at you? Would you keep that critter as a pet?
This is exactly what one woman did when she found a tree frog in her organic greens and due to this, the owner of the company that sold their greens to Costco stated that it just proves that her product is 100% natural. I have to agree with this one. Read the article here and tell me your thoughts on it.

Having traveled to many countries including parts in Asia and Africa, there have been many times that I have passed street food vendors and wanted to go all Anthony Bourdain and eat at every single one of them. However, that pesky voice in the back of my head would always tell me otherwise. That yes, I could get sick. Funny how that never seems to happen to Bourdain. Or at least that we know of.
Anyhow, I came across this article that chronicles in pictures, food vendors from around the world. Every time I travel, this is a part of the culture that I love. Street food. I love to just walk and peek around and see what everyone is cooking up. Interesting indeed.

Thanksgiving is literally just around the corner and I will be having some company and have been feverishly getting ready for my company (mix that with unpacking and it sure is a whirlwind!) This year along with my parents, my cousin and her family will be coming and my cousin's hubby is one big beer connoisseur. What on earth am I to serve him that will impress his taste buds?
If you have the same dilemma, I suggest checking out this list from Justin Philips. Justin compiles a list of 6 unique brews that will be sure to please the pickiest beer fans at your table this year.
ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!
