Here in the Shreveport-Bossier area, it's a proven fact! We love our food!  Proof of that came again just a little over a month ago when it was determined that Shreveport is again listed as the second fattest city in the United States.

But I want you to consider that food is probably the most important aspect of everyone's life, given that the number one text message that people send in America deals with what people are going to eat.

With that in mind, I discovered that tomorrow, Tuesday, April 20, according to nationaldaycalendar.com, it's "National Cheddar Fries Day", "National Lima Bean Respect Day", and we'll celebrate "National Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day."  Of all three of those that are apparently of national importance, I can really only see us laying claim to the Cheddar Fries; but they better add chili to that or they're missing the boat.

So food is a big deal all across this great nation. But here in Shreveport-Bossier, it could very well be the most important thing we consider on a daily basis. So the question occurred to me, "What are the foods that Shreveport-Bossier people say they can't live without?"

And I think we've put together a winning list!
