Quote of the Day: Food is our common ground, a universal experience. James Beard  National Frozen Food Day It’s National Frozen Food Day and a reminder that there are some delicious choices in the frozen food sections at our local grocery stores.  After a long day with the kids or a 12 hour day cooking for customers, it’s nice to be able to look inside the freezer for something quick and easy to prepare.  Here are the top five items that put a smile on my face when I rummage through the coldest part of the ice-box.   A)  Home Run Inn Pizza – I know it is one of the lesser known brands out of Chicago, but if you can get your hands on one, give them a try.  The crust, cheese, and toppings are all top-notch.  The...
