To the editor,
(Re: Spicy Cravings to expand menu in new year, Truro Daily News, Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013.)
It was interesting to read in Saturday's Daily News that Spicy Cravings at the farmers' market in Truro is expanding its menu in the new year.
Aru Thiagarhaan and his family seem to be nice, hardworking people who produce a good product, but it behooves me, and I suspect thousands of other people and a lot of restaurant owners, chefs and cooks, why anyone in the food business would need a grant to develop a new menu.
My wife and I occasionally make a good, old fashion beef stew and sometimes we change the spices an ingredients a bit. To date, we have never been contacted by a government department or official and asked to research whether we should use summer savoury or not. I suggest that if politicians want to research something, they should hire a highly qualified psychiatrist or psychologist to study why they can't resist mishandling other peoples' money. Now that would be a project that would receive a high percentage of taxpayers' approval.
By the way, my New Year's resolution is to go on the Internet or open a cookbook or two and check if there are any other combinations for our stew recipe. A notification to public officials who have control of taxpayers' money with wings, my address can be obtained from the Truro Daily News.
