Obesity is on the rise

Healthy ketchup with those fries?

Genetically modified food and a toxic spill

Can we lose weight with a pill?

Still… farmer’s markets made us pleased

And food trucks have filled a need.

Cooking at home is again a trend

And school lunches are on the mend

Whether you get recipes from blogs, apps, or tweets

It’s again ok for us to eat meats!

So we raise our glass and propose a toast

That in this New Year, we all get what we desire most!

“Con tantissimi auguri di felicità nella vita e . . . in cucina.” (With many good wishes of happiness in life … and in the kitchen.)
