There were lots of sensible and cute entries, from partner to co-heart to significant other. Spousal equivalent, intended and POSSLQ (person of same sex sharing living quarters) were also suggested.
There's a current and general disgruntlement with the word "foodie." So perhaps it's time to turn the national intellect onto this thorny problem. Commenter betheats threw out the first suggestion with "eatie."
There was lots of news for eaties this week: breweries and taprooms opening. Restaurants opened, and restaurateurs moved on and eateries changed their menus. And America's Test Kitchen is coming to the Nashville Farmers Market for chocolate! Got to be there for that!
There's always more foodishness than we can fit in these spaces — what's eatie in your quarter this week and next?
