After a brief interruption, we're back with our five favorite blog posts of the day. I didn't think I was gone that long, but D.C. area bloggers were very busy. (Posting champs include Greater, Greater Washington, Frozen Tropics, Rockville Central and Susie's Budget and Policy Corner.)

Since no one wants their summer picnic to end in the local emergency room, Montgomery County Council member Nancy Floreen offers some summer food safety tips on her blog, Nancy At Large.

Listen to Leon reports on a bit of a "misfortune cookie" he received over the weekend. We sympathize. What ever happened to "You will win the lottery"? Hrumph.

On the Slow Cook blog, Ed Bruske and Co. offer advice on how to be a climate friendly gardener.

Here's your chance to meet Mr. Peanut and Mr. Doughboy. The Food & Think blog reports that both are on display at the National Inventor Hall of Fame and Museum in Alexandria as part of the "Inventive Eats" show, which highlights "people, products and processes that have transformed the American food system."

Pictures galore of Hello Cupcake's Design your own D.C. cupcake challenge, courtesy of the metrocurean blog, (she served as a judge). Am impressed by the creativity of the entries -- reminds me a bit of The Post's annual Peeps contest.

That's it for today. Remember, we're always looking for interesting, intriguing, informative or just plain fun blogs to add to our list. Send your suggestions to
