Salivation is Free

Salivation, salivation, salivation is free! If you haven't noticed, I can't help myself when it comes to plays on titles, songs, anything that has words I can change to be about food I guess. Also, if you don't understand that reference, shame, shame, and please go here to be informed.
I've been extremely busy at work this week. The end of the semester is nearing and besides the normal scramble, two of my classes' partial and final exams were pushed up several weeks. Yuck.
So I've been busy, rushed, tired, and apathetic in the kitchen (the few moments I've been in the kitchen). This doesn't mean, however, that I haven't found (or been presented with) a few delicious things to salivate over in my time at the office. I thought I would share a few things that gave me salivation this week, and maybe you will find some inspiration for the weekend or just work up a good appetite for your next meal.

A lovely (albeit brief) Bon Appetit article my friend sent me. All about Oaxaca! I'm so proud. It mentions a few lovely places and some delicious restaurants in Oaxaca.

Epicurious--perfect enough on its own, but I've especially been finding solace in Around the World in 80 Dishes. It spotlights "the globe's most iconic recipes." Very delicious. I'm anxiously awaiting for them to unveil the Mexico recipes.

This Food and Wine blog-post Never Mind the Butter, Here's the Sex Pistols, appealed to me, I'll admit, just because of the title. I mean, I love butter, way more than the next girl, but I really have no use for brand recommendations here in Mexico. I like the idea of Johnny Rotten in a butter commercial though.

I've also been dropping frequently in on, which is exactly what it sounds like. They post upcoming recipe contests and links to the sites. I love inventing recipes and imagining I'm going to win something delicious for it. I'm especially excited about a grapefruit contest. Mmm.

One final lovely for you, Chowhound. Restaurants, cooking, wine, and beer recommendations. Even the description "voracious devotion to hyperdeliciousness" excites me.

Enjoy! I'm off to nosh away a good chunk of Oaxaca's natural resources. Then tomorrow a three-day weekend at the beach should recuperate me enough to resume my own expounding. Happy Friday!
