Cinnamon toast. Plain white bread toasted with butter, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Not very fancy, but for a part of my childhood I was kind of obsessed with it. I wanted it for breakfast and lunch. I'm guessing I probably wanted it for dinner too, but my wise mother nixed that. I wasn't exactly what you would call an adventurous eater as a kid. I had some other favorites - macaroni and cheese, but not the boxed kind. I preferred seashell pasta with melted Velveeta cheese sauce. I used to request it for my birthday meal every year. I ate basic things like spaghetti (without sauce), chicken, hamburgers and actually a fair amount of fruits and vegetables. But there were a lot of things I didn't eat - chili, fish, mushrooms, anything with ketchup, onions, peppers or mustard, and pretty much anything that was new or different.

Paul Thompson: From Sanka to Sushi

February 18, 2015 - 9:50am
"From Hank to Hendrix, I've always been with you," Neil Young once sang. This would have been some time ago, and by "some time" I mean about the same amount of time from today as the "Hank to Hendrix" interval Neil was singing about back then. I wonder - can we use food to mark time in the same way?
