Here's a twist on an age-old question: Which came first, the chicken or the nugget? After all, it's hard for many parents to remember a time when tiny dinner plates decorated with cartoon characters weren't filled, in part, with golden-brown, roundish or boot-shaped objects, and accented with a colorful dipping sauce. Twenty-five years after McDonald's introduced the Chicken McNugget to the world, the boneless, battered treat has clucked its way to the top of the list of kids' favorite foods - no matter if the nugget comes with fries and a toy in a little cardboard box or is poured out of a bag from the family freezer and microwaved for a quick post-soccer-game, pre-bath-time meal.

Recently, I was visiting someone in Harford County when I happened to notice their child's school menu on the fridge. It was just disturbing. Listed for the days coming up this week: Chicken nuggets, chicken bites, various pizza items, French fries, fried fish and one item I could identify as healthy - steamed broccoli. It was so sad. I know in these economic times it is hard to budget and children will often throw healthy items away, but please, chicken bites on a pretzel rod?

The kids are bored and school doesn't start for another few weeks. What can you do? How about teaching them to cook? Emeril Lagasse, the one chef the kids have probably heard of and maybe even watch, introduces them to cooking in Emeril's There's a Chef in My Soup: Recipes for the Kid in Everyone (Harper- Collins Children's Books, 2002, $22.99). The 75 recipes in this book are not necessarily easy (there's one on how to make pretzels, for example), but they tend to be the kind of fare kids like to eat: pizza, corn dogs, spaghetti.

A downtrodden Brent Ludtke stared at his nearly empty South Baltimore restaurant yesterday afternoon and lamented the recent drop in business. A year ago, Ludtke would seat about a dozen tables for lunch. But at 1 p.m. yesterday, only one of the 12 tables in SoBo Cafe was occupied - a sour side effect of the economic recession. "I'm shaking right now," he said. "I've been here 10 years and I could possibly lose my restaurant." Squeezed by gasoline prices creeping toward $4 a gallon, rising grocery bills and a volatile stock market, consumers are eyeing ways to cut unnecessary costs.

At 11 a.m. every Friday, second-grader Nicholas Maloney performs a dissection at Hillcrest Elementary in Catonsville.Like millions of American children, he chooses his favorite hot school lunch -- pizza. He carries it to his table, lifts off in one piece the 4-by-6-inch layer of cheese, then folds it in half, sauce side in. That's the part he eats."He always does that," fellow second-grader Erin Whelan said from across the cafeteria table last Friday.Children may be picky, but pizza is the universal favorite in school cafeterias.

When the kids can eat free at a restaurant, I'm always suspicious about where corners will be cut.Will portions be smaller? Will prices be higher on other items? Will we be ignored once the food is served?My suspicions were for naught at the Bonfire, where one kid eats free with each paying adult from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. And it isn't just hamburgers and hot dogs being offered to kids here. Their choices included Chinese dishes and prime rib.By arriving early, adults may take advantage of several "early bird specials," featuring everything from prime rib to chicken cordon bleu at reduced prices.

The thing I liked most about Harry's Main Street Grille was outside the restaurant. Chiseled into the handsome facade of Harry's building on Main Street in Westminster was the family-owned restaurant's unofficial motto: "Once a dream, now a tradition." I like that confident pride in a restaurant. And after 57 years of operation, Harry's has become a Westminster institution. Some people come for the hot dogs, others for the chili. I came for a little of everything. Harry's is a full-service restaurant, complete with a liquor license, but it also offers carryout served in a little room tucked off the main entrance.

Is reading dead? Of course not. More books are being bought - and, presumably, read - than ever before. Drop by Bibelot or Borders and you'll see that the book business is booming. But before you breathe that proverbial sigh of relief, take a closer look at what the customers around you are buying. The experience may make you think twice about the future of reading.I offer in evidence the best-seller list published in the Oct. 6 issue of the New York Times Book Review, which contained not one current novel that was "serious" in any recognizable sense of the word.
