Daily Prompt: Live to Eat
Some people eat to live, while others live to eat. What about you? How far would you travel for the best meal of your life?
I certainly eat more than I need to live but I also don’t live to eat either! Food for me is like music…it makes life more enjoyable, it is a reason for connecting with others and besides being enjoyable food helps create memorable moments. I may not travel further than the grocery store for most things but I would travel a long way to meet a friend for dinner. Maybe even a few states away 🙂 For this daily prompt I will list just a few memories regarding food. I also decided to look at my Instagram…tons of food pictures so I included some of the ones I took with friends!
Mexican food with chili sauce – NO I can’t even look at it without feeling nauseous. When I was younger I had an awful case of food poisoning after eating a burrito with chili sauce.
Thanksgiving Stuffing –My husband’s grandma made the best….I miss her every time I see dressing.
Onion Rings – The first meal my dad let me plan and make was some cheesy onion slop…it was terrible.
Mayonnaise Cake – My mom made it fairly often growing up and it is still one of my favorite chocolate cakes.
Broccoli – I found a dead fly in my spear once…super ugh
Cheetos – My brother and I sitting on the steps of the back porch pretending to be Chester Cheetah!
SOS – (Shit on a Shingle) I love this meal but one time my dad added ground beef and burned the gravy and it was awful. We sat at the table for hours before we were allowed to go to bed.
Edamame – My friend Dave decided to eat one whole at a sushi restaurant because he didn’t realize you had to suck out the beans…lol…chewy…bleck.
Ham – One time my husband was a bit gassy and we were in the car when my daughter pipes up…I smell ham…ewwwww…TMI
Little smoky sausages- One time at a party I made a joke about how they reminded me of someone I was married too. From then on his nickname was lil’ smoky. Sorry honey…it was just a joke.
Ham and Cheese – My sister used to live on microwaved ham and cheddar cheese…every meal.
Lemon cake – My husband’s granny mistakenly added pepper instead of poppy seeds…not so good.
Us: Granny do you like cheese?
Us: Oh! Ok we were going to make lasagna.
Granny: Oh well I like lasagna I just wouldn’t sit down and eat a big block of cheese.
Now family joke -Would you like a block of cheese for dinner?
Chicken – I think of my best friend R. He would live on chicken…and oreos.
Onion – I think of my friend Anthony because he won’t eat anything with onion.
Chocolate Raspberry Martinis – I could kill my friend Josh for introducing them to me.
Fire Cake – My mother n law is a chef…everything she makes is amazing. This cake caught her oven on fire.
Chocolate Covered Cherries – My husband is in the theater room and texts me to come up and take the 3 boxes he devoured to the kitchen before he ate even more.
OMG I could go on forever and ever…. And I am hungry.
