Ruby Tuesday is a tasty meme that we hunger for. Okay, the food metaphors may be slightly over the top, but this week's entry (entre?) offers a bit of red. A barley salad was prepared, and I felt that the red pepper added some ruby color to the colorless grain and chickpeas. Since it was December, the green peas and red place mat added a holiday flair that enhanced the simplicity of the salad. A little or a lot of ruby adds a sporty flair to nearly any subject.
