I guess I've been a chocoholic since first taste but the last few weeks I've been trying to cut back on the sugar. I read dark chocolate is good for you, with restraint of course. I found dark chocolate bars and then happened upon the ones with almonds. I can live with this. No more driving to Dairy Queen to buy a blizzard or banana split. Walmart started hiding the dark chocolate bars with almonds from me. I have to thumb through three rows of bars to find one or two with the almonds in the back or in the middle. What is with ordering a bowl of soup or a salad and they give you one cracker? To me that is an insult and I'm not even that big of an eater. So today I took my own crackers. Had plenty of crackers with my soup. I know I could ask for more, but I don't want to have to ask for more. I had a friend who loved fresh garden grown onions so when we ate out she carried her own onions in her purse. When I lived alone once a man friend invited me to a local café for supper. When our food came he ask for Tabasco Sauce. The waitress said they didn't have any. He left me in the booth eating with his food getting cold on the table and he walked a half a block to a store to buy a bottle of Tabasco Sauce. I've often wondered what he would have done had the store not had Tabasco Sauce. Maybe I would have had to call a cab. How do hog farmers grow those hogs with the lean strips that just fit in the little package windows. You think you're buying a good package of bacon with lots of lean. When you open it the only lean is in the little window, the rest is pure fat. What do you have to say about food today?
