*this photo has nothing to do with this post...I just think he's a handsome kid.
a handsome kid that is looking very old lately...

DVR'd Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution on Friday...
watched it Sunday night with Colin and J after the littles were in bed.
Nearly gagged watching him make the chicken nuggets.
(Actually I had to look away)
I was telling the littles about it before school yesterday...
about how he used the carcass,
ran it through the food processor,
squeezed it through a colander
and formed the mush into patties to make chicken nuggets.
They both listen intently...
and when I was done explaining...
Jack said-
"Whew...thank goodness McDonalds doesn't use those kind of chicken nuggets!"
umm...
yes...thank goodness...
?!?!?
or
NOT.
so yeah,
we completely missed the point of that discussion....
It's a good show though,
love what he's trying to do.
Not sure I'd go with coleslaw as an introduction to veggies for kids,
how many children eat slaw?!
But overall I think he's brilliant...

i nearly gagged just thinking about that chicken nugget thing again...so gross. i looked away too! i was shocked that the kids still said they'd eat it. um....EW.

i think the show idea is brilliant too. i was appalled at the amount of wasted food too. whole apples untouched going in the trash?! how is that okay?

have you seen the documentary food, inc? watch it. i watched it on netflix a couple weekends ago. i swear you'll want to plant a garden by the time the credits are rolling at the end.

I almost gagged and had to turn away too. GROSS! did you tell him that Mcdonalds is indeed made that way!LOL! too FUNNY!
that photo of j = so handsome and looking like it's a senior photo! LOVE IT!!!!!!!
I put slaw (the mix, plain) in our salads and mine love it, but not coleslaw itself....
I LOVE jamie oliver, just LOVE!

what a good-looking guy --- how is it that your house is not mobbed with teen girls?

ew, no slaw for me. I haven't seen this show yet, but I will have to break my no-watching-TV habits to watch this, I think. I have one of his books and love it...am thinking I need this one too.
