What I Learned About Food While Watching the Oscars

  1. Vons thinks it's Whole Foods. There was a commercial for their new line, called 'O', of 150 organic products. This is a good thing. Right?
  2. Round Table Pizza thinks it's artisanal. Proscuitto Artisanal pizza with lemon feta and artichoke hearts? A far cry from canned pineapple and canadian bacon.
  3. Taking a Marie Callender's Chicken Pot Pie out of the freezer and chucking it into the oven is cooking with "absolutely no shortcuts". Obviously.
  4. Albertsons is now quirky and hip. Who knew?
  5. Apparently, in countries the world over, "Dad's making dinner" means Big Macs and Quarter Pounders. Ugh.

Not sure what to make of all this. There's a whole wide crazy world out there when you actually turn on your television.

[Incidentally, and a propos of even less, did anyone else absolutely love the user-submitted Dove commercial? And she's from Sherman Oaks! Rock on, valley girl!]


  1. Interesting blog, all kinds of yum is right.

  2. I'm going to make the French Kisses recipe.

  3. hey thanks and welcome! you will not regret making the French Kisses -- they are addictive!
