Did I just read that?

No errors in this one, just a outlandish ideas that are so far out it made me laugh.

From Rodale's Book of Practical Formulas, pg 46:

"Good idea! To add texture to a baked  potato, garnish with a low-fat topping and sprinkle on shredded raw carrots or beets. Top it all off with lightly toasted sunflower seeds." And then feed it to a rabbit.

Seriously--what kind of texture do they like to add, the same one you get when your potato is not cooked enough? That sounds appealing. Baked potatoes--now with less fat and added texture!

Page 48: "For a yogurt treat appealing to children, spoon newly frozen yogurt into popsicle molds, freeze, and serve."

Since yogurt usually doesn't appeal to children?
And how do you spoon it if it's frozen? Why does the "newly" part matter? And what difference will it make to freeze it again?

And Page 49: "If you're serving carbonated beverages, be sure to stock up on club soda, sparkling mineral water, tonic water, and ginger ale." 

Since you need mixers for soda like you do for alcohol? Because people who want carbonated beverages really want to drink most of these? (Have you ever tasted tonic water?).
