A Strange Turn of Events on a Slow News Day

Original image

On Monday, I posted a clip of my two-year-old playing with her U.S. Presidents placemat alongside our "can you guess the president by his placemat portrait?" quiz. Gawker re-posted the video last night, and today it showed up on the Yahoo! homepage and NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.

This internet thing is pretty crazy. In case you missed the full video and want to scoff at my shoddy camera work, here it is.

Charlotte's 15 minutes (or 55 seconds) of fame haven't gone to her head. When we tried to watch her segment back on TiVo, she protested. "I want to watch Clifford the Big Red Dog instead," she said.


Update (2/21): Charlotte was on Rachael Ray for Presidents' Day this morning. Here's her segment. This should make for a few interesting pages in her baby book.

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
