E is for Eating

March 26th, 2011 at 09:26 pm

No kidding...that's pretty obvious, isn't it?

I was reading an article in today's paper that said that young adults who participate in church activities may be prone to obesity due to many of the church functions relating to food. Amen to that! We like to eat, that's for sure, and fellowship usually involves some type of food, doesn't it?

I, unfortunately, love to eat. I remember a friend of mine who basically ate to live. She said the only time food tasted good was when she was pregnant. She said she would then sit and eat row after row of Oreos because they tasted so good.

Part of good things of the trip was trying a couple new restaurants. We ate at two very good ones in the evening. I'm not a big sea food lover, but the crab cakes at one restaurant were so good. At another, the shrimp and grits were very delicious. We ate lunch at a restaurant that was named after a Greek god and the portions were large and the food was superb.

I get caught up on how important food is. I've become a bit of a snob at times. I like trying new things and I want it to be flavorful and good. A lot of my free time is spent in the kitchen. My husband is not complaining -- he said to buy whatever I want because he benefits. We had a chance to visit a great kitchen store in Charleston and I found a baking stone I felt I needed. I have to admit the fact my pastor was telling about how much fun he had using his baking stone on making bread certainly made me consider getting one. I also bought a bamboo spatula. Did I need these items. Not really. But I will get far more use of them than a t-shirt.

I think eating is like everything else, it needs to be done in moderation and that is not only in the actual tasting of food, but the thinking about and preparing as well. I certainly don't want to be so caught up in it, I forget to do other things. That being said, guess I need to get ready for supper!

    Ha, ha, i also read that story about the connection between obesity in middle life and regular church-going as a young person. A lot of churches emphasize carb-laden church suppers. I remember the story well because I wrote about it at my new job at the news website.

    I really enjoy good food and i like cooking when i have time and the inclination, but it becomes a chore when you have to do it every day.

    You and I are on the same page on the cooking...I have told my husband I don't mind cooking, but when I have to rush home from work and feel like I have to create a great meal, it becomes a pain instead of a pleasure.

    I LOVE to eat too! Big Grin
    I love the taste and the textures. I like the experience of eating with family and friends. I like cooking when i've got the time and have planned ahead enough to have every thing I need on hand.
