What do Meals Mean to You?

I once heard of a contest that offered $1,000,000 to anyone willing to eat ONLY their favorite food for the rest of their lives.

At first that seems easy….pizza? ice cream? pasta? All day every day? YUM!

However, think about it, the same steak dinner for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Forever??

Oh the monotony! Eventually, even food that you didn’t like before, like clam chowder or green tea ice cream, looks appetizing.

To me, food is more about nurturing and socializing than sustenance. I am at my happiest when I am baking or cooking for my 2 teenagers. When they bustle in and out of the house between their studies and sports stopping quickly to eat a nourishing meal, I feel such contentment.

I love sitting with them at dinnertime and hearing about their day. I often learn more about their lives when they talk to each other while eating than at any other time. I’m sure that if I fed them the same meal day in and day out, the monotony of the food would dull their conversation too.

How about socializing with friends and families? How much time is devoted to chatting in the kitchen while preparing and serving food? The comfort of cooking family favorites as well as discovering and sharing a new recipe make the kitchen the hub of the dinner party.

Would you bother to dine out if you had to order the same meal every time? When I go out with friends we order different entrees and try each others. We also order several items and share tapas style. It makes for a warm ambiance and a lively evening.

This holiday season, whether you are cooking for your family, planning a small cocktail party or having a neighborhood potluck, enjoy the variety of foods that you serve your guests.

Life is wonderful when it is full of choices and opportunities for new experiences.

The same meal everyday? No thank you, variety is the spice of life.

“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.
