Christopher came home with good news. He had just landed a job at a local pizza restaurant and had spent the last two hours completing his orientation training. Pizza dough, sauce, and cheese certainly do combine for a delicious taste treat. Christopher loves pizza, but there was just one small problem. The pizza kitchen was lined with ingredients. Some of them he recognized, but many of them were a complete mystery to him. What were those red wrinkled things? How do you tell the difference between pepperoni and salami? Was that crumbled sausage or crumbled hamburger, and what in the world is an artichoke heart? None of the ingredients were labeled, and he had never eaten many of these foods before. Besides, they were all cut up into tiny pieces which made it difficult for him to tell if those were green peppers or green onions in that bin.

|Artichokes are so good!|
The contents of our refrigerator didn't satisfy his questions, so he decided to Google them instead. I am continually amazed at the sheer volume of information on the Internet. You can find just about anything on it. With just a few clicks of his mouse, we were staring at artichokes and sun dried tomatoes on the computer screen. We went down the list of ingredients on the menu and found images of each one. We were able to find pictures of them cut up, sliced, diced, and whole. In no time at all, we had identified the entire list of ingredients, and Christopher was satisfied that he would be able to assemble any pizza without a problem.
|Sun dried tomatoes...a great idea!|
Who knew that food could be this complicated? I guess there are just so many things about eating that we learn over the years and just never give a second thought to, but eating is "a whole new world" for Christopher. I suspect Christopher will have many more questions about food and eating. I'm sure I will be answering that same old question again...what is that?
