Brew that coffee! Pour that OJ! And settle in this morning to catch up on what's happening in the world of food. Here's what we're reading (and watching) this week.

• Let's kick off this week's Feed52 with food52's Kickstarter project of the week: The Scrumptious Pantry wants to bring sustainable food to grocery store shelves -- we're for it!

• We're on board with the importance of reforming school lunch in the U.S. -- here's a behind-the-scenes video that sheds light on this critical issue. (The New York Times, City Critic blog)

• From our 7th floor perch in Manhattan, we can't help but daydream about what lunch would be like if our Union Square Greenmarket was in L.A.: artichokes in the farmers' market and a seasonal recipe. (LA Weekly)

• Between pudding and tart, we're in dire need of big ol' salad, but honestly, who can face another bowl of romaine or mesclun? Enter this nifty, overlooked variety. (The Atlantic)

• Thanks to pierino, our very own foodpickle brought the next frontier in DIY to our doorstep: grinding whole grains to make your own flour! (Los Angeles Times

• Enough of this health kick: have you ever wondered what would happen if you sandwiched a peppermint patty inside a homemade brownie? Perhaps only we have -- and David Lebovitz answered our cry with his Chocolate Mint Brownies. (David Lebovitz)

• And thus, we leave you with a morning's worth of armchair travel to the sunny food mecca of Sicily. (Saveur)

Vita Mix for grinding whole grains works quite nicely.

That's cool you're highlighting a Kickstarter project each week.

Oh David L, I thought that one up first! See I've been hoarding Girl's scouts thin mints (I'm a leader and this is cookie selling season) with the grand idea of freezing them and adding large chunks into some brownie mix for a minty, refreshing, indulgent bake. Glad though that great minds think alike :-)
