Checking through the archives, I’ve noticed that food is most likely to get others here to write about their memories.
I just spent 10 weeks on something we called “the Edgar Initiative” because if someone says the word “diet” in front of me I insert my head into a bag of chocolate peanut clusters from Eddie’s and refuse to come up for air.
So here’s what I’ve had since I hung the dress up in the back of my closet. Not that I plan never to fit into it again, just that I plan to have a little fun for a week. Here’s my idea of fun.
Friday: A Wendy’s cheeseburger
Sunday: A poppyseed bagel with cream cheese.
Monday: Pommes frites at Petit Louis. (I believe these to be the greatest french fries available in all of Baltimore.)
Wednesday: A Coca-Cola!
Also, there were some Otterbein cookies in the mix. (Local bakery, makes better chocolate chip cookies than I can make and I bake a pretty good cookie.) I’m pretty much done now and, truth be told, the meals sprinkled among these indulgences have been disgustingly healthy, but I think I’m healthier for having had a few treats.
So, if you’ve been deprived for any reason — an “initiative,” being a “Survivor” competitor, travel to a country that didn’t have your favorite foods, whatever — what’s the very first thing you ate the day the deprivation ended?
And, yes, I know this blog has been a little manic lately, but it’s going to be thin pickings here come June.
