A while ago, I learned of a guy making t-shirts and stickers with the phrase Eat More Kale on them and I was like "wow, I love kale, I need those!". And upon going through the process of finding Robert Muller Moore's website I found out more about him and learned some shocking stuff that he is going through.

If you live in an area where the fast food chain, Chik-Fil-A exists you may be familiar with their slogan and signs (including a cow) that read, "Eat Mor Chikin". So, they have been fighting to keep Robert from using the phrase Eat More Kale as they believe it is too similar to their slogan.

I support the Eat More Kale website, I'm a fan on facebook and I try to follow the story as best I can. Recently, I saw another blogger share a post about this struggle, including the Letter of Protest (see end of this post for reference) that Chik-Fil-A submitted, as I began to read it, I became very annoyed. Chik-Fil-A claims that because they believe the phrases are too similar that "consumers who encounter Eat More Kale will be confused". They believe that the American public is too stupid to realize that Kale and Chicken are too different things. They further argue that consumers will think they have expanded what they offer to include Kale (oh the horrors!) or that the products made by Robert Muller Moore will be assumed to be made by Chik-Fil-A because of the similar phrasing.

Ok, here's my attempt to clarify this:
Photo A
Photo A is of _____________

Photo B
Photo B is of _____________

If you answered that A is a photo of Chickens and B is a photo of Kale then you are correct. And are smarter than Chik-Fil-A, who doesn't even spell the word Chicken correctly in their slogan, thinks you are. So, just to make sure we are clear I'll also show you exhibits of the products in different states.

 This is a cooked chicken:                                                       This is kale picked and ready to be used:


This is chicken as you might see it at Chik-Fil-A:
This is Kale as you might see it at my house:
And yet, even though many of us know the difference between Chicken (even when it is spelled Chikin) and Kale, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has decided that Eat More Kale is likely to cause consumer confusion. 

Even the Government thinks the average consumer can't tell that these two items come from different sources.

I think this is insane. First of all stop eating at Chik-Fil-A, it is fast food and is making America unhealthy, second they insult the intelligence of our population and encourage misspelling to our youth with their Eat Mor Chikin slogan, I'd like to sue them for that! Second, Robert Muller Moore making t-shirts, stickers, and other products is aimed at encouraging a HEALTHY lifestyle, why is that frowned upon and being punished? After all, the creation of this slogan came from someone asking Robert to make such a shirt because of how much they love kale.

I beg you America, EAT MORE KALE. And yes, Eat More Chicken, but not from Chik-Fil-A, buy free range, vegetarian fed chicken products and stop eating fast food. If not for your health than at least because they have insulted your intelligence.

Ok, I'm done. This rant has been approved by The House of Skip. Thank you that will be all.

"Paleo Burritos" AKA stuffed collard greens

I recently discovered another use for collard leaves, a replacement for our old friend known as tortillas or wraps. After removing the stems and taking a quick 3 to 5 minute bath in boiling water they are ready to go. They are more durable than lettuce and fold over a little easier after being boiled. I have used them to make a variety of lunchmeat and grilled chicken wraps recently and then I got to thinking, couldn't I make a burrito out of them? Once I assembled them, it reminded me more of stuffed cabbage than burritos, call it whatever you want, they were still yummy. So, I'll share the recipe with you.

This recipe should be considered a guide and you can change and swap any way you wish.

Approximately 4 collard leaves
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 yellow onion sliced thin
1 green bell pepper sliced thin
1 4 oz can green chiles
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
the following spices can be added to your taste (I don't measure)
chilli powder
garlic powder

Nashville in a Nutshell

Hello folks!

Skip and her companion recently jetted off to the wonderful land of Nashville, TN for a quick trip with our friends, Mr. & Mrs. Z. Here are some highlights, tid bits and recommendations.

Places to stay: We shacked up at the Hutton Hotel on West End Ave, not far from Vanderbuilt University, but also pretty close to Downtown Nashville. The Hutton is a boutique hotel and is very chic. We found it classy, comfortable and clean-- all very important. They have Nespresso machines on each floor, so you can get your caffeine fix, but you have to leave your room. However, there is a small coffee maker in the room as well with a decent coffee and tea selection. The highlight for Skip's companion was that there were speakers in the bathroom that allowed you to hear what was playing on the tv. The shower was amazing. Skip is not a fan of rain shower heads, but this one was fantastic and you could set the temperature and turn the shower on and off from a panel directly outside o…
