Twitter Killed the Blog Part II

As some of you may recall, I posted back in March about how Twitter killed the blog. Well that may have been a slight exaggeration although I do post less quick hit type reviews on the blog primarily because I've probably already said it on the twitter.  Anyway, I decided to post my food related tweets for the past few months here for all my non twitter followers and as a year in review type post so that all my tweets can be found in one place.
