Food Quotations--Part 1

It should come as no surprise to anyone that I collect food quotes. Not prices, no! I collect funny, pithy, clever, interesting food quotations.

Food is so intertwined with life that food quotes are often a comment on the human condition. I have hundreds, and I will share more another time, but this is to prime your pump. Go out and collect food quotes for yourself. One terrific thing DH loves about this collection of mine is that it is out of his sight!
