They were vegetables once
London, ON, July 2011
I thought it made sense to end off this week's celebration of all things vegetable with a somewhat off-center look at what a vegetable is - or can be. I know the onion rings pictured here are horridly bad for you, and have had virtually all of their Mother Nature-gifted goodness sucked out of them by the deep fryer. But as a very occasional treat and still life subject, I'm thinking they're just barely acceptable.
Besides, that checkered-placemat-in-a-tray is too retro for words.
Your turn: When good foods go bad. Please discuss.
One more thing: Our new Thematic theme - "It's in the details" - launches tonight at 7:00 Eastern. Hope you'll join us for that, too.
