I began thinking that a blogspot is something of a city; it is a place where people share the world as they see it. They prepare, as it were, a meal for visitors that are invited to come in. When people visit a blog they peruse the fare served up and may find it quite different from ‘Mom’s’ cooking. Sometimes we look at this strange meal with a curious and reserved attitude. Sometimes we poke the food, turn it over, examine it on all sides and make sure that it is safe for consumption.
Of course we try and do this as discreetly as possible but if the meal is from a different culture or kitchen than we are used to, we can be reluctant and may but nibble at first. Or, we may be convinced that it is contaminated and leave the home, carefully cleaning our shoes so we don’t carry any contaminated crumb off with us.
Now if you came to Oregon and were to eat fresh Salmon, which is plentiful here, I would warn you to watch for bones, Salmon have many. But they are delicious.
Most folks are familiar with meat and the caution required to avoid bones, and have no fear. But there are some that never eat fish for fear of dying from swallowing a bone; those I strongly caution because I serve lots of Salmon here.
