There’s no such thing as a free lunch. You’ve heard that before, right? Economic theories aside, the saying means nothing comes free. Everything is a process, including food. Most of us already know that. We know how important it is that we take the time to understand – or at least think about – where it came from and, if it was prepared for you, how and what it was made from. Food choices are a philosophy of life, a display of respect for ourselves and our surroundings. And bad food choices are more than a stomach ache!
A few weeks ago, in the name of showing a little appreciation for local farmers, I went to a chic but homey restaurant nearby to sample from their menu of locally-grown and organic ingredients. (They even have organic beer!) I tried an appetizer of roasted lamb, aged balsamico and sage, and decided right then and there this dish held all the power of the entree. I would have to replicate it.

Let?s face it. While we may enjoy our day-to-day diet choices, thank you very much, it can seem a little daunting to plan a dinner party, anniversary dinner, cocktail hour, or other special occasion when not everyone shares those choices. Before you break out the French bread, cocktail crackers and buttered fingerling potatoes, here are a few easy alternatives that might satisfy the entire crowd, including you, the host/hostess. No more sitting out at your own party.
