Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
So what is Food Revolution Day?? I’ll tell you…or rather I will have them tell you. “Food Revolution Day on 17 May is a global day of action for people to make a stand for good food and essential cooking skills. It’s a chance for people to come together within their homes, schools, workplaces and communities to cook and share their kitchen skills, food knowledge and resources. Food Revolution Day aims to raise awareness about the importance of good food and better food education for everyone by focusing on three simple actions – cook it, share it, live it. The first Food Revolution Day took place on 19 May 2012 with more than 1,000 events in 664 cities across 62 countries.” (Sourced from Food Revolution Day website)

Nowadays there seems to be a Phone App for everything. Some of them seem to be silly and pointless. Some are fun –like the app that Megan over at Pink O’Clock shared that allows you to add borders, fonts, etc. to your phone photos. And some will go a long way in advancing our consumer knowledge of what kinds of products we buy and where those products come from. If you are not already aware of this, check out the Forbes article that discusses BUYCOTT, a new app that allows you to scan product bar codes to determine what company produces it and who owns that company. From what I’ve heard they are still working out a few bugs, but I am excited about the concept of becoming a more educated purchaser.
