Hunger Sets In

I have a bad habit. Well, I have several bad habits, but this particular one happens every day. I can’t exactly run from it. Also, I wouldn’t really think of it as a habit, although I’m not sure what you would call it… one of life’s cruel games?

You have no clue what I’m talking about, do ya? I thought so. Well, I tend to watch the Food Network when I am really hungry. Not only does it give me great ideas for dinner/lunch/breakfast, i t makes me drool over the fantastic food they make. I could even watch Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and think those weird foods look delicious. Although, I would probably skip the bugs and insects- they just look icky and nasty. I have tried squid before, so I don’t mind weird. Well, now I want Chinese food. Oh to have sushi and spring rolls right now…. I would be in food heaven. Sigh. Maybe one of theses days.

food-fastI also will look at food websites when online, when I’m hungry. I’ll find cakes, cookies, or other foods. I don’t do it on purpose, and I guess I do it subconciously. But also, I try to get gift ideas. Since my mom’s birthday is coming up, I have 2 ideas for a gift. She may say “Oh you don’t have to get me anything.” Yes, I do! First, she’s my mom and deserves the stars. Second, you have a birthday once a year (Yes, I stated the obvious… I wasn’t thinking about it), so you need to feel happy to see another year. So, hopefully I can either do one of both birthday gift ideas. I just hope I can get them or it in time.

Great, now I’ve made myself hungry once again and it’s way too hot to cook. I guess I’ll grab a bowl of cereal and use my imagination and pretend it’s a chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes. Mmmm….



Twin Dinner Topics

Yesterday evening, about 7pm, everyone seemed to be getting hungry. It was close to supper time, so of course we would be hungry. But, we really didn’t want what we had here at home. You can only fill up so much on bologna and peanut butter. We hadn’t gone to the grocery store yet. When asked what I was hungry for, I screamed “Hambugers!” That didn’t last long at all. At all! My sister, being Miss Persuasive, was able to persuade us all into wanting Chinese. Darn she’s good!

So, we piled into the car and went to our favorite Chinese Buffet restaurant. The first half of the supper is quiet. We were more interested what we were putting into our tummies. Boy was the food really good! For the next half, supper got more livelier. I think most of it consisted of me and my sister bantering back and forth. Somewhere near the end, quietly, but loud enough for our parents to hear, sis and I sang “Mr Roboto” by Styx. So why did we break out into a song at the restaurant? I had asked Sissy if it was “Domo” or “Arrigato” that meant “Thank you.” I still have no clue which one is really is! Maybe this is why Google is my best friend. Even though we sand quietly, I’m pretty sure the long man in the booth next to us could somewhat hear us. He was nice and didn’t mind. I think he enjoyed his entertainment for the evening. Oh, and thank you sir, for not sttaring at the birds nest that was my hair. It has a mind of it’s own.

I love it when dinner ends in song and dance. Or in our case, song and remenants of low mein and fried shrimp.
