Legendary chef James Beard once said: “Food is our common ground, a universal experience.” The equally legendary Julia Child, also said: “You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients.” Today A Thousand Moms launches: “There’s No Place Like Home Cooking— Nutritious, Easy-to-Prepare Meals for Busy Families.” Join us as we begin our cookbook project to address the busy needs of LGBT youth in care and their families. Today on A Thousand Moms Talk. Hello and welcome back to A Thousand Moms Talk for Saturday March, 5, 2011. I’m Dave Balog, the information person for A Thousand Moms: Building Community Support for LGBT/Q Youth in Foster/Adoptive Care. Today we turn to the topic of food. It’s the common denominator of our lives. Not just to sustain ourselves, but to socialize, communicate, and literally conduct our daily conversation. But too often, now, we resort to easily-accessible fast food, eaten quickly and alone. Today we ask our guests to share memories of wonderful dining experiences, and ask why too often today our youth and families too often eat poorly, on the run. And we’ll ask you for your memories and recipes for A Thousand Moms new cookbook: There’s No Place Like Home Cooking. No more potato chips and Mountain Dew for breakfast!
