I love the concept of this show-using partly prepared/packaged foods mixed with homemade to create delicious and easy meals for your family but my question to you is: Have you ever watched an episode of Semi Homemade? Are you for real Food Network? Exactly who is the target audience for this show supposed to be? Last time I checked the average American women didn't do any of the following:
-dress to match her kitchen
-decorate her kitchen to match her tablescape
-create a tablescape for every meal
-have an endless supply of rainbow colored dishes to create said tablescapes
-have the funds to run to the store for a new set of dishes to create a new tablescape even if she were to do it only monthly
On top of that, when was the last time you saw the average American women grilling burgers on the seashore wearing an all white shirt and pants outfit? I think you may appeal to more viewers if you were a little more realistic and down to earth. Yesterday I was watching an episode while I fed my baby during which you were creating a meal for kids. Last time I checked none of the following were on a the list of favorite foods of the average American child:
potato salad with jalapenos, Mexican spice, cilantro and chipolte sauce
5 bean chili
Cajun spice pork burgers with a sauce made up of: horseradish, tartar sauce, Cajun spice and capers (which by the way you said there would be none left over because it would be gobbled up)
Are you serious? Sandra, please. Pretty sure most kids would choose hot dogs and potato chips over this.
Food Network lets get real. Every time I start watching this show I turn it off before the program is even over because I think, "this is so ridiculous." Lets come up with a show that could really help the average American women (those of us who struggle with what to make for dinner on a daily basis) not with what to wear to match our kitchen.
So over the tablescapes.
