Last week I saw down to a Mother's Day Tea at TD's school. We had lemonade with heart-shaped ice cubes and pink paper bags full of popcorn that the children had made for us. It was delightful. After our snack we followed them to 'Music & Movement'. Each week she participates in what can only be described as a yoga/dance/singsong frenzy. The kids love it and it was fun participating even if I couldn't exactly get into a correct downward dog. The staff spoke often about how the number of overweight children has almost doubled in the past twenty years. This generation will not live as long as their parents because of fat-related illnesses. In my state it is the sixth leading cause of death.
We know the facts. The First Lady is on a misson to eradicate this US epidemic. What used to be a small issue isolated to one or two kids per grade has now become commonplace. $3 billion a year is spent by fast-food companies marketing directly to kids. I don't like my kids wearing cartoon/TV show clothing because I don't want them to be walking advertisements. I don't want them thinking that french fries and ketchup equal two servings of vegetables a day either.
When I see these two items -
IHop's Stacked Pancakes. For breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh, and dessert. Maybe Fourth Meal too, perhaps?
and of course KFC's Double Down. Who doesn't want all that grease, fat and salt mainlined into their system all in one punch?
Now visit this site for some real cringe-worthy dishes. My favorite is the Sweaty Cowboy right next to the Elvis Double Down.
That is all.
