Something doesn't look quite right here...

Ah, that's better. ALL SPOONS IN!
Happy birthday, Christine!

Orange juice tasting
We divided this one into two rounds, on two different days to save our tongues. You're looking at the No-Pulp edition, which was followed by Pulp. We sure got our Vitamin-C this week.

Yeah, Lauren's pie didn't last long.
Someone wants a burger
"What has two thumbs and loves burgers?" THIS GUY. Former SE intern Alison Herzog sent us a few photos of her baby son (nicknamed Baby Zog) for us to ogle over.
Happy Birthday, Ed!
Since he provided his own chocolate cake from his birthday lunch at Del Posto, we decided to make him birthday cocktails, and instead of candles, umbrellas! A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Serious Eats overlord Ed! (There's Aperol, rum, King's Ginger, and Jeni's cherry lambic sorbet in that cocktail. Sweet and umbrella worthy, just the way Ed likes it.)
1) Hambone had to go through a bit of surgery this weekend. He was complaining about how droopy his eyes looked, so Kenji decided to give him a facelift as an early Valentine's day gift.
2) Just kidding. Truth is, the excess skin on his eyelids was causing him eye problems. He's out of a successful surgery and should be back to his normal self soon, brighter-eyed than ever.
3) Jamón in a cón.
Fritos for Hambone
Ed fed Hambone some Fritos while temporary-vegan Kenji was making a vegan Frito pie.
Oh, Hambone in a Cone
Remember when Hambone was Hamcone earlier this year? Don't worry, the cone won't stay on forever, Hammie.
