Food Glorious Food!

I enjoy writing. I think it’s because it is a forum where no one interrupts me and I have the illusion of stating my opinions to the masses. Today I’m not really passionate about anything. No large issues looming in my mind, no social crisis in process that is just begging for me to weigh in.
Today I am food obsessed. I just keep thinking about different things to eat. Last night when I got home my Sean had just bought fresh baked sesame seeded kaiser rolls. I baked up a Gardein fake chicken patty, and tossed it onto that Kaiser roll with one small slice of ripe tomato, a whole lot of olive oil Mayo and a generous helping of Bac’uns which are fake bacon bits. It was a very nice sandwich. I do not think that I have enough sandwiches in my life.
For breakfast I had a breakfast cookie, then a breakfast snack of a chocolate chip Cliff bar junior. For lunch an Amy’s light & lean burrito and now I’m slowly munching on an apple while I type this as dessert to my lunch. I know I have gained weight the last few weeks. Vacation added four pounds and I have not been working out very much since I got home. My husband is leaving for Scotland tonight so I will try to use the next couple of weeks to really get in a lot of physical activity. Hopefully it will get me back in a good pattern.
I am wondering if there is such a thing as a chocolate hangover. I’ve noticed after a day that I have eaten a lot of sugar it’s difficult for me to wake up the next morning. I feel positively hungover. I think I will go google this while I’m thinking about it. Well the consensus seems to be yes. While I was googling I then started seeing all of the descriptions of the chocolate goodness that can give you chocolate hangovers and it started making me want more chocolate. Ridiculous, I am.
I should pick up a bag of some healthier snack food from Costco. Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow. I’ll just need to be strong tonight and not eat any of the crazy amount of junk food that seems to be in my house.

  1. I love sesame seeds on bread. Freshly baked – even better.

    I notice when my evening meal is carb heavy, I am a dullard when I get up the next day versus a carb light meal I will definitely feel more with it but will be hungry throughout the night.

    All of your vacation food looks so good. I especially like the looks of those crepes.

    1. hmmm, I think I will pay more attention to my morning feelings and my evening dinners to see if there is a connection.

  2. I know there is a total carb connection! The vacation food looks wonderful…if you said anything about French personalities, I missed it. Hint

Don’t leave without saying something!
