hmm... i think i remember fighting this guy in the legend of zelda

(In case you don’t already know, “nom nom nom” is the internationally recognized phrase for eating cutely. See Exhibit A for details and proper usage.)

Stuff Worth Reading returns with an insatiable appetite for prowling the internet for the very best of personal finance articles. My own appetite is also rather insatiable, but I’m sure that will subside this weekend when I face off against the IHOP All You Can Eat Pancakes. Current Vegas odds are 2:1 that I’ll be able to get through a dozen flapjacks. I’ll be disappointed if I leave before eating at least a thousand.

It looks like other personal finance writers are just as hungry as I am. Here’s a look at some of them and what they’re munching on this week.

  1. Clever Dude tells the sad tale of some buffet lovers who got themselves banned for eating too much. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before this happens to me, but I don’t go to any single buffet frequently enough for them to have caught on to me yet.
  2. If you think you’d save money fixing your own salad instead of eating one at a restaurant, The Frugal Duchess says you don’t know the half of it. She shares tips on making your own gourmet salad that’ll save you both money and time.
  3. Give Me Back My Five Bucks laments the high cost of meat substitutes. I thought meat was expensive, but apparently not eating it can be even costlier!
  4. Did you know that a clean kitchen can save you money? Frugal Village enlightens us on how a tidy cooking area isn’t just for obsessed neat freaks and haters of salmonella poisoning.

I’m sure I’ll have tales to tell of my battle against IHOP next week, so be sure to tune in for that. Until then, stay warm, and may your pancakes be light and fluffy!
