and thus concludes food month

I didn’t even plan it. Yesterday I finished up that previous post and went to update the links on my other blog. As I typed them into my template I realized I have spent the entire month talking about food, groceries, and getting the kids to eat the food.

No wonder I am tired of this topic.

Enough with the food posts, woman. We know you have to cook lots of food. Every. single. day.

In honor of NaNoBloMo, which I did not sign up to do because my god…the pressure!!! I am going to share a rant a day, until I run out of things that annoy me. So that should be awhile.

My annoyance for today:

Salad dressing that doesn’t have the little shaker top thingy inside. So when you try to sprinkle the dressing on your salad it ends up drowning it instead. Newman’s Own Italian dressing…. I’m talking to you.

    Oh, I agree totally. The other thing I have heard people complain about is the ziptop locks on cereals. I never have to worry about it-a bag of that sugar coated fluff lasts less than a day around here.

    This drives my husband up a wall too. Yep, Newman’s Own.

    Um, I hate to point this out, but did you notice that your gripe was about … food? ;)

    That’s one of my pet peeves too!

    As far as my kids are concerned, drowning the food is the objective. Everything tastes better with an inch of Ranch dressing on it.

    What’s WORSE is the salad dressing that has a shaker top that ABANDONS you mid-bottle. There you are, upturning your dressing bottle, secure in the knowledge that every other time you’ve done that a reasonable portion has drizzled out upon your leafy greens. And SPLOOOOSH! Instead you get roughly half a cup of salad dressing and your children learn a new swear word.

    Ahhhh, I didn’t read this post first that explains your ‘rant a day’ plan. Love it! I personally hate salad dressing that is so thick that you can’t get it out of the bottle. This is probably a good thing, though, since thickness could be a sign that it isn’t all that ‘low cal’!

    Oh my gosh, I have the same rant about salad dressing! How hard is it to include that strainer-thingy? It’s removable if you don’t want to use it!
