Treat yourself on 4/20 with Kacey Musgraves’ ‘High Time’ special


Every year on April 20, some people like to kick back and... well, smoke weed.

Texas country singer and former Austin resident Kacey Musgraves understands when 4/20 rolls around, people might be doing their own rolling. So why not help them out with their “high time?”

Musgraves, who has been very public about her marijuana use, is offering those looking to light up in style the perfect merch bundle. For $40, fans can purchase an autographed photo, “cigarette rolling papers” and a relaxed-fit T-shirt with the message, “It’s High Time.”

The phrase refers to Musgraves’ song off her sophomore album Pageant Material. The rolling papers include the lyrics “slow your roll” and “let the grass just grow and lean way back.” 

Last year, Musgraves spent April 20th getting a tour of pal Willie Nelson’s cannabis business. And when you’ve got a guy like that in your contacts, any time is high time. 

Listen to “High Time” below.

Egg foo yong gets its revival
Egg foo yong gets its revival

The name sounds slightly inauthentic, and harks back to the days when Americans didn't know from mapo tofu or bao buns. But egg foo yong is a most approachable, Cantonese-style dish with a tradition of its own: an eggy pancake with a kitchen-sink helping of tender and crisp vegetables, pork, shrimp, even water chestnuts and bean sprouts.

Fattier pork is better pork
Fattier pork is better pork

As the availability of good, fat-marbled pork has risen, so has my adoration of that stalwart favorite, the bone-in pork chop. Things used to be different. For years, pigs were put on a diet, then served up lean and mean, without much internal fat to lubricate and flavor their brawny flesh. (Remember “the other white meat” ad campaign?)...
Despite the hype, intermittent fasting isn't a magic weight-loss cure

I joined in a wave of the intermittent fasting trend about 10 years ago -- before I was a dietitian. That's when most of the writings on the topic were in the form of blog posts and self-published PDF e-books. Today, a perusal of the Internet turns up several best-selling books extolling the benefits of intermittent fasting for weight loss and improvements...

‘We may no longer be able to get butter,’ French fear because of shortage

The French are running out of butter. A butter shortage has forced the price of butter to go up more than 90 percent in the last year, putting iconic French staples like croissants in jeopardy, according to a story in The Guardian.  “Last April, we were paying 2,500 (euros) a tonne,” Matthieu Labbé of the baking industry body...

Good food in economy? Six airlines are making it happen

Is it really possible for economy passengers on long-haul flights to look forward to the in-flight food? Now, on some airlines, that answer may be a “yes.” While back-of-the-plane cuisine doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being appetizing, and amenities for economy flyers are increasingly few and far between, several carriers...
