PETA’S UNhappy Meal

I was stalking other people’s blogs this evening when I came across a post about PETA, you know, the animal rights group. Now, I am all for the ethical treatment of all God’s creatures but PETA has been known to practice some pretty radical ideas and efforts. Case in point: Inside Peta’s Unhappy Meal.

Disclaimer: The content about to be discussed is not suitable for viewing for children under 18, er, for anyone actually!

Now, just imagine walking into McDonald’s with your happy go lucky, sweet, little children to find hordes of protesters complete with a presentation. You will find a chicken cutting the head off of an upside down Ronald McDonald with fake blood everywhere.


and just when you think you can’t take anymore, they hand your child an Unhappy Meal box.

This was taken directly from the PETA Unhappy Meal web site:

“The inside of the Unhappy Meal box is stained with “blood” and contains a “blood”-filled packet urging McDonald’s to “Ketchup With the Times,” a paper cutout of a menacing Ronald McDonald with PETA’s parody “I’m Hatin’ It” logo, a “bloody” plastic chicken, and a “Chicken McCruelty” T-shirt wrapped up like a sandwich.


I find the images disturbing and cannot imagine just how I might explain to my toddler the reason these boxes had boo boos. Seriously PETA?

Food Tiding

This year has been quite a blessed one for the ladies of our MOPS group. We have 2 babies due later this year and one new baby boy. So what we have decided to do is that everyone in our MOPS group signs up to take the newest Momma a meal for their family to enjoy. I will be taking Will’s famous Chicken and Rice Casserole, a personal favorite of our family. One in which I hesitate to share the recipe for. I don’t know what it is about sharing this particular recipe. Maybe if I give it to everyone we won’t be able to use it to entertain people with so then we’ll never be social again???? Anyhow, I am still not ready to share but I will be making it for Anne and her family on Wednesday. I’ll be sure ot take some pics of me prepping it and maybe you can all guess what goes in it;)
The way we decided to do it is through a schedule we all sign up for on FoodTidings.com. I haven’t had much time to go in and play around with it but it seems pretty neat. I think it’s a way to plan who will take what, when, and where to who??? If you get to check it out before I do, let me know how it all works.
Now, I do love me some Eggleston Chicken and Rice Casserole,… would it be weird to sit in with the happy family and stuff my face too?

dressing and grooming


Cole styled his own hair while I was working away at the computer. That is hair gel in his hair. He looks kinda cool I think. I might just let him dress and groom himself from now on…
