Saturday blogging: Produce in the news

Neo-neocon's apple just had a makeover. Go take a look. Both Neo & apple look lovely.

It's mushroom season and Make it with mushrooms has recipes.

Fresh Spinach May Return to Stores Soon, so you might be able to enjoy a spinach and mushroom salad. If the idea of salad doesn't sound hearty to you, add crumbled blue cheese, hard boiled eggs, and freshly-fried bacon. That should be enough cholesterol to keep you for a few hours. For dressing, extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar (the oil has no cholesterol, sorry).

While NBC has no compunction in showing Madonna's latest oeuvre (with maybe a question of how much to show, not a question as to whether to show), the network insists that objectionable content be edited from an upcoming children's TV series. What, you may ask, could have been so offensive? What could possibly cause the network to be so emphatic in its insistence? This:
they rejected it because, at the end, Bob the Tomato said, 'Remember kids, God made you special and he loves you very much.'
Here are the details. Brent Bozell has more.

If you don't know what the Veggie Tales are about, I highly recommend the DVDs for young kids (age 8 and under). I particularly enjoyed (in order of preference)

(Yes, they're for little kids. However, little kids love to play their videos over and over and it's better to get a video you like than to have Barney or the preachy Berenstein Bears on a continous loop.)

I wholeheartedly endorse Fausta's recommendation of Veggie Tales for little kids. They're fun for big kids, too! I love to sing along with the silly songs, and really enjoy the adult humor that goes flying right over the kids' heads.

Give them a try, you'll love them too.

I love the music numbers (usually with a grand finale) and the puns, Ken.
