Today’s first course?

Dumplings are a simple and extremely satisfying snack, and it looks like people have been enjoying them for a very, very long time, because archaeologists in China recently discovered some surprisingly well-preserved dumplings in an ancient tomb. They just dried out into hard, desiccated little rock-like objects that are now perfectly preserved for scientists to study. The archaeologists say the dumplings are crescent-shaped bundles stuffed with meat and encased in a wrapper made of wheat flour dough, which look very similar to what a person would find in China today.

And just in time for the Easter candy season, English chocolate maker Cadbury has introduced two new chocolate bars. Featuring “luxury” ingredients that are sprinkled on top of the bar rather than hidden inside, the first Dairy Milk Medley bar comes with dark chocolate chips, caramelized hazelnuts, and bits of raspberry. The second comes with dark chocolate chips, bits of crunchy biscuit, and fudge pieces. Earlier this year, it was revealed that the company suffered a $9 million sales slump after changing the formula of its quintessential Easter classic, the Cadbury Creme Egg, to contain cheap cocoa mix instead of chocolate. Cadbury, however, has not yet acknowledged the link between its disappointing sales and its disappointed Creme Egg loyalists.

Imagine shopping for your weekly pantry necessities: milk; bread; eggs; organic, gluten-free kale chips, while enjoying a glass of wine at the same time. It sounds a little far-fetched, but the newest trend in grocery shopping could be getting tipsy while you pick up essentials. Busch’s Fresh Food Market, a small grocery store chain based in Michigan, is seeking a liquor license for a store opening soon just west of Detroit. The chain plans on operating a bistro in the middle of the store with beer and wine available for thirsty shoppers to purchase. Grocery stores may say they’re looking to improve customer experience, but they’re probably also aware of the fact that a slightly inebriated shopper will purchase more.

And that’s today’s Daily Dish. Thanks for watching, stop by tomorrow for another helping.


Spinach with Caramelized Onions

I can admit I wasn’t always a fan of spinach. Of course that was when I was a child. But now I cannot get enough of the stuff. Even when I make salads I mostly make them with spinach compared to any other lettuce. I just love it and it’s so good for you.

So I love serving it as a side dish for my meals, but plain spinach needs some extra added flavor. That’s where the caramelized onions come in and the two combined make one tasty dish.
