Vegetable plagiarism and Nanowrimo

Did Jessica Seinfeld crib recipes or not? Mr. Seinfeld, on the David Letterman show, seems to be a bit wacky over the whole thing.

I don't know about anyone else out there, but when Travis was a wee tot, I mushed up vegetables, too. I haven't seen the cookbooks so I don't know how close the recipes are, but the books came out at the same time, so I don't see how Ms. Seinfeld could have cribbed--unless the publisher cribbed for her. Now the casserole thickens....

What do you think?

....

Also it's Nov. 1 and that means it's Nanowrimo month. Who's writing a novel this month? Only have to hit 50,000 words, a book the size of Brave New World or 1984. On your mark, get set, go!

I think there are only so many variations to describe how to cook mushed carrots.

I mean after all, this is a cook-book.

I have shredded zucchini into lasagna, carrots into spaghetti and onions diced so small I put them in everything. It's not a novel idea, neither of them are the first to come up with it. There's no plagiarism here - just two women writing about an age old idea ...
