Those of us who came from the 1940's have seen changes in our eating and preparing food just as earth shaking as the huge technological changes we've experienced in our lifetime. We've gone from chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, strawberry shortcake which at that time did not have any calories to the new school lunches where children get a piece of celery and 1/4 of an apple for lunch. We've gone from the woman of the house reigning supreme in the kitchen to everybody in the kitchen preparing gourmet meals. We've gone from never dining out to eating out once or twice a week. We've gone from eating because it was good to eating to make a political statement. It's pretty hard for some of us who still remember when chicken and noodles had no calories.
