Two things brought Alton Brown to mind on Tuesday. The News Sentinel had an article about some kudzu-eating goats that may graze in city parks. I remember seeing Brown eat some kudzu himself, possibly during an episode of “Feasting on Asphalt.”
On Tuesday night a group of girls were celebrating something at the Einstein Simplified show. They had a tray of marshmallow treats made with Fruity Pebbles instead of Rice Krispies. They could barely eat them and let me have a taste. I suggested that they go to the other end of the cereal spectrum next time. The Pebbles were too sweet in combination with the marshmallowy goodness. I told them about Alton Brown’s recipe for marshmallow treats made with healthful cereal, dried fruit and nuts.
