With Thanksgiving just around the corner I thought this weeks theme should be all about Turkey! That was fine until I started looking for Turkey themed pages. Zilch, Nadda, Zippo! The same goes for my search for stuffing, green beans and all the other fixings that go along with our annual feast. So it’s on to Plan B…
Circle Six Food!
The Food Network seems to have some of the best content on their Page https://plus.google.com/100091697767366769792/posts I’m not so much a fan of the network as I am of some of their talent. I would say to circle up the best motorcycling chef around Alton Brown but he hasn’t posted in quite some time. So for this edition – it’s the Food Network but hey, they’re posting some good stuff!
File Dana Moos under “HOPE”. She does some incredible stuff and shares it regularly on Facebook but so far she’s just completed her profile on G+ and no posts. I “hope” she start posting over here too. She’s got a great cookbook with fabulous photos. Circle her up now because when she does start posting her recipes and food shots you will be overwhelmed!. https://plus.google.com/112956366184834597390/posts
This one’s for my friend Tom who is now vegan. I worry about him going hungry. I think I would. Luckily for him, I found The Vegan Zombie! It’s a guy named Jon who looks like he’s having way too much fun. https://plus.google.com/106869498615483745438/posts Remember when Jaime Oliver came out with his series “The Naked Chef”? Were you as disappointed as I was that there was no nakedness? Well, Jon isn’t actually a Zombie but he is a Vegan. He’s got some entertaining cooking videos and guess what – he has both food and Zombies! That’s a Two-fer! I just want to know what he has against switch and outlet cover plates.
We’re Switching Gears – are you ready?
There’s two sides to the coin and while we’re feasting and being thankful for what we have we should also be mindful that there’s others who are not so lucky. Let’s not just be mindful – let’s do something about it!
The World Food Programme is the biggest humanitarian aid agency in the world. https://plus.google.com/114847020675987042570/posts I couldn’t find a better page that dealt with hunger worldwide. They are new to me as well. Check them out!
This one I know more about. I’ve volunteered at The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano helping them sort cans and other products for distribution. They are local to me and although we live in a well off area there’s plenty of people going hungry in the county. They don’t just open up for the holidays. It’s important to remember is that hunger is a year round issue. https://plus.google.com/102086024917284781954/posts
The Alameda County Community Food Bank covers the county next to us. They mention that they provide food for 275 nonprofit agencies in Alameda County. Think it’s all canned food? In 2010, the Food Bank distributed 20.1 million pounds of food – 52% of it fresh fruits and vegetables! https://plus.google.com/105809185640969268747/posts
So that’s my Circle Six Food Edition which reminds me, did you know Google Pages operate differently than Profiles do? Here’s 10 things Google Pages can’t do.
And since G+ now supports hashtags – this post (and hopefully yours) can be found under the.
