Plot Marge becomes jealous of Homer's fun relationship with Bart and Lisa, who took them to an E4 convention. When Marge tries to do something fun with the kids, it ends in disaster.

En route home, the car breaks down in Little Ethiopia. While there they stop by in a restaurant for a bite to eat and actually like the food.

Lisa comes up with the idea of creating a food blog online, reviewing all the restaurants in Springfield. Homer starts to feel left out, so that for one review, Marge invites Homer along. She dreams that Homer steals her thunder and sends him to the wrong place for the review.

While Marge, Bart and Lisa go to the proper restaurant, Homer goes to a meth lab which is raided. Marge realising that Homer would've enjoyed it, and the kids suspicious of Marge's lies, the Simpsons leave to save Homer.

The entire family for the next weekend head to Krustyland.
