It's been one of those "What do you mean it's Friday already? What happened to Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday?" kind of weeks around here. As such, I'm a bit behind on a lot of things...like writing blog entries. *cough cough* Oops.
So, instead of beating my head against the desk, trying to come up with a good blog entry to entertain y'all, I thought I'd let some other Paleo and food blogs do it for me. (Yes, I know it's cheating but it gives me a good excuse to wade into the 224 food blog entries sitting in my Google Reader. ;-) )
Ad critique: Chef Boyardee @ Ms. Q's Fed Up With Lunch - Most food bloggers know about Ms. Q's project to document a year's worth of school lunches. Now that her project is over, she's talking about a variety of things, including this critique about the recent advertising campaign for Chef Boyardee's products. I agree with her statement: "This is exactly the type of veggie advertising we need, minus the Chef Boyardee stuff."
It’s Too Hard!!! And a not so hard recipe @ Everyday Paleo - "But cooking Paleo is soooo hard!" That reaction makes me want to beat my head against the desk. It's not that hard! And I can't help but laugh when I'm told: "But you work out of your home - you have the time to cook like that!" Let's see - I'm a single mom with two young kids who runs a business out of her home while trying to keep the kids from killing one another. If I can find the time to fry up a couple hamburger patties and toss a bag of frozen veggies in the microwave, so can you!
