Food: 1 Sparker's Junk is Another Sparker's Treasure
Sunday, October 30, 2011
I just read a blog by TUBLADY & it got me thinking about FOOD, what things I don't even notice, & what things I can't leave alone or even stop thinking about.
Hands down, the worst of all for me to have in the house would be "Dad's Oatmeal/Chocolate Chip Cookies." They call to me. They take up my thoughts & no matter how many I eat, it isn't enough. There is no fill line for these in me. I also have trouble with treat dishes. If I see it, I want it. At work, people bring in treats & set them on the side of the counter where I sometimes work. I want to eat the crap even if I don't even like it.
Sometimes, I have bought Halloween candy & stored it at my neighbour's. This works well for me. This year, I decided that I would not buy any until tomorrow. We get a lot of kids here, usually over a hundred, & it should be cheaper tomorrow anyway. I can always take any leftovers to work on Tuesday & put them on the counter that I despise.
What about those things that I don't give hoot about? Ice cream can sit in my freezer & go all frosty & gross & have to be thrown out. I like ice cream, on occasion, preferably soft & in a cone. If it was in the front of the kitchen freezer, I would eat more. I bought some Lindt mini dark chocolate bars about 2 or 3 years ago, so if I really wanted something, it would be there. Well, there are still 2 hanging around. I should throw them out, but I haven't got around to it. If those were Toblerone or peanut butter cups, they would be long gone (to my store of hormone excreting, excess adipose tissue.)
So, what do you think? Do you have some foods that are deadly & some that are not even given a second thought? What makes it so? Why these so different for each of us? How do you cope with this?
