Are you seeing more "green" restaurants in your hood or is this just a California thing? We now have two restaurants on this theme in our little suburb (the other being Paul Martin's), so I wonder if the trend is hitting elsewhere, too. It's certainly a trend I can get excited about.
Lots of people were making Rachael Ray recipes this week - my favorite kind of posts! Here are some Rachael Ray posts from around the blogosphere this week. If you see a post that you think would be good for the Roundup, or you write one yourself, e-mail me so I can be sure to include it.
- Bok Choy Bohemia features a recipe for Sesame Tofu with Apricot Sauce adapted from an Old School Rachael Ray cookbook - $40 a Day.
- Aggie of Aggie's Kitchen liked the recipe for Lemony Tuna Salad from Every Day with Rachael Ray.

- Cheap Recipes recommends giving Rachael Ray's recipes a try.

- Mindi of Moms Need to Know found ways to make Rachael's recipe for Tuna and Tomato pasta even more budget friendly.
- The recipe for tuna casserole from Rachael Ray's talk show ended up in the trash at The Magic Mommy's house. I liked this tuna casserole recipe from Rachael's magazine.
