Captcha Challenge - "square meal"
The saying 'square meal' makes me laugh, because even though we know it means a satisfying and nutritious meal, as in "three squares a day", it makes me think of square food. When you think about it , there is quite a bit of square food. Fish fillets for fish sandwiches tend to be square, although they are often served on a round bun, which is funny, because sliced bread is square. So why not use sliced bread and keep it all square? It's like they are just trying to be contrary.
Some food comes square, like crackers and some cookies, but most food we just make square by cutting a piece, like brownies, lasagna, and cornbread. Think about it--have you ever cut a round piece of lasagna? How about a triangular brownie? Sometimes we cut cut cake or pizza in a wedge shape, but other times, it's square, too. Kinda depends if it started out round or square.
Occasionally, we get really fancy and make CUBES of things, like cheese and sometimes ham (in my case, it's more likely to be Spam). It would be interesting to try to make a square meal out of square food--maybe a fish sandwich on sliced bread with crackers and cheese on the side, and a brownie for dessert? I'm not sure it's all that nutritious, though--we seem to have a shortage of square fruits and vegetables. Better make some veggie lasagna, then!
