Oh, what a week it's been! We are very much looking forward to the long holiday weekend after a busy couple of weeks fueled by earthquake, hurricane and tropical storm buzz.
Labor Day is always thought of summer's last hurrah as people scramble to cram as many barbeque and salad variations into one weekend as possible. But, after a long week and an equally lengthy and hot summer, we've decided to recommend a few of our favorite mindless, yet no less entertaining, sites for this week's What We've Been Reading, rather than recommending recipes. And hey, maybe these sites will inspire some creativity for another salad variation!
Here at What's Cookin, if we are going to procrastinate, it is generally still food-related (we are just that committed). So I introduce you to our favorite food-related scanning pages. Because scanning random things is fun.

Scanwiches is a great site which features the cross section of sandwiches, scanned onto the computer and uploaded. It is incredible how interesting sandwiches can be when you look at them from this perspective. The colors and textures all make such an impact on not just taste, but appearance as well. And looking at them this way just makes you want to bite right in. Enjoy.
Scandybars is another fun one, this time scanning the cross section of candy bars instead of sandwiches. Who knew the inside of candy bars looked so interesting? We sure didn't. So for all of you who, like us, have fallen victim to shoving candy in your mouth before really looking it, here is what the insides of all your favorites actually look like.
And last, but definitely not least is The Cat Scan. Okay yes, this is in no way food-related, but c'mon it is scans of cats sleeping on scanners. That's adorable! We especially love Drako the dark knight.
Know any other scanning-related websites? Let us know!
