Why Yes, I DO Know How To Photoshop. Quite Well Too, If I'm Being Honest.

PLEASE USDA.  That tiny bowl will not even fit one serving of macaroni and cheese, let alone the whole box and then one more box. 

Come On USDA, Live A Little.

There.  I have fixed it for you.  YOU’RE WELCOME.


  1. I love that you included a spot for dill pickles and cheesesticks. I'm about to learn how to can just so I don't have to buy jars of pickles anymore. Cheesesticks are banned at our house due to the fact that they are highly addictive. It's a gateway food that leads to harder things.

    I sent Ryan to the grocery store this week solely for pickles. I'm still surprised he actually did it. Must have been feeling guilty about something hmmmm...

    And I totally agree about cheesesticks leading to harder things...harder things like churros.

    Your version of the USDA's recommended portions make me snork my sprite out of my nose, which I now imagine to be as clean as your ears.

    I don't know if you meant to type 'snork' or if it was just a happy accident, but I love it and am adding it to my vocabulary immediately. Thanks for reading!

  6. I'm fairly certain that we should eat all of our meals together. Although I might make one minor adjustment (deep breath, it will be ok) I would make half of the cookie dough segment into "frosting out of the can." OH and can I add a layer on top for those pickles that are slathered with cream cheese and wrapped in ham? Too far...?

    1. Well those pickles just sound delicious, though I might wrap them in turkey instead. I have a sort of thing about ham.

      And absolutely! Frosting out of the can for everyone!

  7. I have a thing about Ham too!! Turkey sounds like we are doing our body good. Ham is associated with Pork and I'm sorry being called a "Porker" doesn't make me want to eat HAM! RIGHT??

    *New reader starting from the beginning. You are HILARIOUS!!!!!

    **Another adjustment to the photo would be to add a cup. A cup of ICE CREAM DUH!

    1. YAY! I Love new readers!

      I can't believe I forgot ice cream. Or as I like to call it "Palate Cleanser." Then I don't feel so bad eating it after every single meal.

      And my thing about Ham is this....my dad made my lunch all the way through high school (I was bad at taking care of myself) and of course the day we have to dissect a piglet in Biology my dad had made me a ham sandwich. I took one bite...and then pretty much never ate deli ham ever again.

      But I TOTALLY get your ham thing too. I'm adding it to my list of reasons not to eat ham. Now I have two reasons, which makes for a much better list.
