If I could go back to the 1920s, I bet these would blow peoples’ minds. Then I would show them the time machine that allowed me to travel back to the 1920s and blow their mind even more. (Spotted by Carla at Safeway.)

Tuna salad is probably the wrong salad to put thyme honey balsamic vinaigrette on. (Spotted by Sylvia and Amy B at Trader Joe’s.)

I have to admit that sprig of parsley on the side does make the photo look better. Just imagine it without it. Blech! (Spotted by Dorothy at Walmart.)

If you turn the home plate-shaped chips 90 degrees, they look like rocket strapped to Wile E. Coyote’s back-shaped. (Spotted by Dustin at Stop & Shop.)

  1. A word of warning about Morningstar Farms Thai Yellow Curry- they put a heck of a lot of curry in it. Not a bad idea to have a lot of extra rice on hand to dilute it… Unless you’re a big curry fan, of course. Too much for me, although I like the rest of it. If I can’t resist a sale on it, I’m definitely going the extra rice route.

  2. Noticed that Morningstar Farms was between Gardein and Boca products on the shelves. If you have a choice – Gardein is the way to go, followed by Boca if you’re looking for something tasty and vegan. Morningstar Farms isn’t as good and they rarely have anything vegan, mostly things that are seriously overspiced. They otherwise put egg whites in practically everything to cheaply boost up the protein on the label. Really annoying since they have pushed out Gardein and Boca on the shelves in my local grocery store – Gardein is gone and Boca is hanging on for dear life, relegated to the bottom shelf. Morningstar Farms must have great marketing.
