The mere mention of hospital food elicits contorted facial expressions and conjures images of green Jello and meatloaf surprise. Depending on how sick the patients, or how sad the visitors, chances are, food is not foremost on their minds. But they want to be comforted.

As my Grandma used to say, it?s just ?good horse sense? to shun seafood in the desert. A more reasonable place in which to enjoy fresh fish would be any coastal community?s restaurant. Perhaps a bit myopic, Grandma?s logic precluded her from ordering chicken at a steakhouse. So if she knew I sought out churrascarias to compare salad bars, I suspect she?d gasp like the time I used a credit card to pay the rent. But now, unlike then, I got my money?s worth. The two churrascarias, Brazilian-style barbecue restaurants, in Glendale and Burbank are Gauchos Village and Picanha, respectively.

Want something done? Ask a 90-year-old church woman to do it. Just like Iva Carrico from Glendale's Incarnation Church. Practically single-handed, Carrico was in charge of the decoration theme and its execution at the 30th annual Meals on Wheels Salad Bar Lunch on July 10 at the First United Methodist Church in Glendale. Sponsored by Glendale Church Women United, funds from the $6-a-plate salad bar will provide scholarships for the Salvation Army's Meals on Wheels program.
