On the first day of a horticulture class (UC Irvine, 1974), the professor made this a statement like this: Vegetable is a culinary term, not a scientific one. What people call "vegetable" can be a root (beet), leaf (lettuce, kale), flower (brocolli), stem(celery), fruit (peach), or seed (pomegranate). Remembering this, I was amused by the comments on whether corn is a grain or vegetable. Government classification doesn't change scientific identification.

I thought this issue of Eating Well was one of the best. I'm back eating comfort food and went out and especially bought a casserole dish that makes about 4 servings, two dinners for my husband and me. I'm back making Hotdishes after many years of a slab of meat, a veggie and a starch. Yeah for you guys. My magazine is falling apart from over use. Keep up the great work. I thought with all the recipes online I wouldn't need the paper, but the magazine has so many wonderful articles and the pix are great.
