It is really exciting to see other bloggers posting dishes that you just ate, or planned to eat. This does not happen very often, even though there are 7 billion people in the world. Not all of them blog, and we don't visit every food blog. I don't know the odds of seeing similarities but I suppose it is much less than the odds of winning lotto. I say this because it happened twice today and few times previously. On the other hand I have never won lotto. I guess the fact that I don’t buy tickets probably reduces the probability of me winning.
For lunch today I had tuna and carrot and it’s not a very common combination. Sissi posted a recipe for carrot and canned tuna salad today. The lentils I had for dinner was very similar to what Joanne posted. Such little things excite me. I should be worried.

The saying ‘there’s no such thing as a free lunch’ is not always applicable, especially if you live in the village of Pince in north-western France.
Officials in the village proposed giving two chickens to each household in order to cut down on organic waste. The chickens should each consume 150kg (330lb) of rubbish per year. It is hoped that as well as reducing waste, the chickens will provide eggs.
So far between 15 and 20 households are believed to have shown interest and they will receive their chickens in September.
This idea to give away chickens started off as a joke and then it was realized that its actually a good idea.
The less honest households could accept the offer and eat the chicken. From a financial perspective it makes sense to keep the chicken and get two eggs everyday but I suppose maintaining chicken can be a hassle. Nevertheless an interesting concept, and no doubt the egg producers will not be very pleased with this.
