We Americans, many of us, are lucky to have access to a huge bounty, daily, in supermarkets, convenience stores, and even stores like Target, a plethora of foods.
Some of us grab for what looks good (meaning we liked it the last ninety-nine times we ate it), and some of us are rather picky. That pickiness varies, however.
I’m picky based on 1) ingredients; and, 2) flavor.
I eat less meat that most of my contemporaries (but not all), and more than most of the human inhabitants of this globe. Offered above: vegetarian lasagne—whole-wheat pasta, long-simmering sauce from scratch, three kinds of cheese (should have been four), pesto added on top because I forgot to layer in the basil leaves.
See, one of a kind. Again, JCB would say.
…and you thought I’d never finish this entry without mentioning Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma. Ooops.
