We are indeed on the threshold of a brave new . . . something. A while back I wrote this post about Fantastic World Foods' Vegetarian Chili mix, which I had doctored up from the package instructions by adding onions, garlic, a jalapeno, cumin, chili powder, and corn. I have to admit that by the time I had finished with it, it was one tasty dish.
A week or so later, I noticed that someone from their website had spent quite a bit of time on that post. It was a little odd, but I figured it was just someone searching the web for items mentioning their products.
And then I forgot all about it. Until today, when I was looking at my stats and noticed that someone had come to that same post of mine from here.
I've got to tell you I have mixed feelings about this. Part of me is flattered that they thought my recipe was good enough to post on their site. And they did have the decency to credit the recipe to me, and to provide a link. But they could have contacted me to let me know they were going to use it, don't you think? Just as a professional courtesy, you know?
And the least they could have done was to make sure they had my blog name correct, right? Or am I being too sensitive?
