Nude Food OH MY!!

Johnny and I were talking about vegetables yesterday and I thought about it for awhile afterward, we just can't leave food at its purest state in order to consume it. Now we have the purists out there who love raw, steamed or however plainly cooked vegetables and whatever else without ANY additions. No spices, no herbs, no sauces, no nothing.

It Ain't A Real Kitchen If Its Pretty

As far as I'm concerned there is only one kind of kitchen, the one meant for business. It isn't designed by an interior decorator, but by necessity over time.
