I should eat healthy, I really should! But life is too short for that. Food, food, food, it chases away the blues, it brings comfort to the soul. So here is a list of the foods that I L.O.V.E. and that make me happy. You will note a theme of cheese and dripping butter (and chocolate) . . . a chocolate bar, anytime bananas, green, not ripe crackers and cheese, as a snack drenched in blue cheese, salads and homemade croutons even, tortilla chips and chunky salsa French fries from a chip wagon (on my way home from the gym) grandma's recipe for beef stew with loads of vegetables and a rich gravy hamburgers and hotdogs off the barbeque with all the fixings ice-cream, chocolate of course just out of the oven, french bread keep the donuts and coffee coming loads of meatballs, made from mom's recipe (in a sweet tangy sauce) macaroni made with three kinds of cheese nothing better, than spaghetti with meat sauce and parmesan cheese onion soup, french canadian style, dripping with cheese pizza, deluxe (peanut butter on toast before bed) quick take out of chicken wings with hot sauce really, really old cheddar cheese steaming cobs of corn, dripping with butter and salt tomato, bacon, and lettuce sandwich until I say stop, chocolate vegetables fresh for a farmers market what is wrong with me, this is all so unhealthy x-tra, of everything, please yogurt with strawberries on the bottom zesty dill pickles, aged one year ______________________________ June 24, 2016 Poetry/List/The Joy Of Food Copyright Protected, ID 16-804-040-0 All Rights Reserved.
