Tidbit Tuesday - Down with Dishes!!

The Americans, as a nation, are killing themselves with their vices and high living. As much as a man ought to eat in half an hour they swallow in three minutes, gulping down their food like the canine quadruped under the table, which, when a chunk of meat is thrown down to it, swallows it before you can say “twice.” If you want a reform, carry out the advice I have just given you. Dispense with your multitudinous dishes, and, depend upon it, you will do much towards preserving your families from sickness, disease and death."

  1. I like that he was commenting on Americans eating over a hundred years ago, before "fast food" was invented. My husband talks about how it was so easy on his mission where they only used one plate & one cup and just washed it each meal. Simplicity sounds so nice right now.
