Exploding Ketchup!

Welcome back! I hope you had a lovely vacation with lots of quality family time, rest and relaxation.

I heard some news about a disturbing new food trend: exploding ketchup bottles!

Apparently, some punk teenagers in Murfreesboro, Tenn. have been adding baking soda to a half-emptied bottles of ketchup, resulting in violent explosions all over unsuspecting patrons’ faces, hands and clothing.

Did you ever go to Mad Hatter's for a birthday party? This is bringing me back to the food fight room.

I hope this doesn’t become a real trend in 2010.

Please stay tuned for some 2010 food predictions to come later on this week. (I promise!) I’ve been scouring magazines, blogs, newspapers and restaurant menus to decide what will be the big new trends for the coming year.
