I'm loving all of these pictures, mom!

(Do they put rice kernels in the salt shakers to help keep the humidity away?)

Glad you enjoyed them!

I'm SO behind in posting blog photos and also Facebook. My internet connection has been horrible lately :(

Yes, many places do use rice in salt shakers... but I'm not really sure that it helps all that much. It's so comical trying to get salt to come out. It's perfectly normal to go to another table and ask to use their salt shaker.

Of course, even 'tomato sauce' is shared from one table to the next.
