Caesar salad with a side of roasted asparagus (and spicy black bean burger - not shown) was the fare tonight...and it hit the spot! Though it is not always the healthiest meal, due to excess cheese, croutons, and/or dressing, there is a nice balance of texture, flavor, and freshness. Food plays a fascinating role in our various cultures, individual and national alike. Besides its ability to fulfill required nutritional needs, food serves as a ritual base for spiritual ceremonies and offers psychological 'comfort' to our emotions. And, we can't forget the connections to the economy (agriculture), creativity (culinary), and global issues. Something to ponder when you are answering the question, "What's for dinner?" Naples, FL


  1. This looks yummy! Don't underplay the nutrition here. It may not be the healthiest, but it's far from junk food either! Great shot!

  2. Oh you are making me hungry! I LOVE Caesar salad! And that burger sounds yummy as well!

  3. I saw an interesting exhibit at a museum in Quebec City last week - large photos of families around the world and their week's groceries. Interesting to see the differences and also the similarities as the multinational food companies make inroads in the third world.
