Furthermore, n3 = n1+(n2/2) which is no longer the fibonacci sequence. 1 1 1.5 1.75 2.375…

A slight modification may be necessary if this is to be an on-going thing: Let the salad for day n be be of volume x and the salad for day n+1 be of volume 2x. The salad for day n+2 will be made by taking all of the day n salad with half the day n+1 salad. This works well because there’s no way I would ever eat any of that salad! (Except maybe on day 1 or 2; even then it’s doubtful.)

“Experimental evidence (we looked in dorm room mini-fridges) suggests that Caesar salad might be modeled as a nonstationary process with strong mixing properties…”
