Life had a strange way of tiring us all out.
Or maybe God’s just grinding me down day by day, who knows?
I plan to start doing Youtube videos really soon to elucidate everyone on my own personal religious journey. I’m sure you’re looking forward to all that.
That being said, I know I missed writing yesterday, but I didn’t have any particular food topic about which to write. That sounds strange, since I always seem to be talking about food or, more accurately, I always seem to be eating.
One of the strangest things I’ve noticed is that I can go for a long period of time without eating during a day and realize that I haven’t actually had anything to eat. I blame this on my consumption coffee and tea with milk in them. The milk seems to fill me up, giving me a sense of having eaten something rich, and so I think my body doesn’t consider that it hasn’t had any proper food.
Also, today I found that awkward moment where I could have been eating white chocolate all this time. I didn’t like white chocolate as a kid- I remember when Hershey’s first released their White Chocolate Cookies and Creme bar, and I remember thinking how disgusting it tasted.
The reality is that white chocolate isn’t actually chocolate, and that in my old age, I’ve decided that I do like white chocolate quite a bit. I think white chocolate is one of those foods that you can’t eat by itself; white chocolate has to go with or on something.
Think of this in terms of white chocolate-covered pretzels, a particular favorite of mine. The sweetness, the saltiness, the all-around goodness of the crunch, and also the fact that the more imaginative among us likes to suck all the white chocolate off of the pretzels just because we can.
Of course, I’m sure you could mix white chocolate with fruit as well.
This all came up because my friend Michael posted a picture of himself with white chocolate peanut butter Reese’s cups, and I became very hungry all of a sudden.
Dear God, deliver me.
WAAAAH, Holy Week is coming up! Ack! I have to cook something for the Seder Supper on Thursday AND for Easter Sunday. I think. Anyway, that’s a lot of major cooking, and since the spread will probably be really nice, I’ll be taking lots of photographs.
Also, did you know that St. Michael’s does a monthly food program? We collect food to donate to help fight hunger every month. Good Works are not dead after all!
That being said, I have to figure out what to cook tonight. Gigi made biscuits recently and ended up making One Big Biscuit in a skillet in the oven. That was interesting.
Get your nosh on!
