When I was a mere lad at home, Mom always made sure my Bro and I ate well. She insisted that we eat a hearty breakfast, and always had a good, nutritious evening meal. Five days a week, we ate lunch in the school cafeteria, so basically we were well fed.
In college, I ate at a little diner close to school for breakfast. Coffee and toast, and maybe, a sausage sandwich. No lunch, as my schedule didn't permit it, and then for evening supper, my roomie and I usually ate something fried. Hamburger, pork chops and the like.
Into marriage, I learned very quickly that my wife was an excellent cook and we ate well. Too well, and too many potatoes and starch. I balooned. She did too, but her's was from the growing child inside. For 38 years I ate very well.
Now, not so much. I look for easy fixes, and have learned to like TV Dinners, and frozen entres. But my really favorite food group is chocolate! I like chocolate just about any way one can get it. As long as it doesn't contain coconut, I will eat it. French Silk pie is one of my favorites, as are brownies and no bake chocolate cookies. I like chocolate covered graham crackers, and often scarf down a few with my morning coffee. I like chocolate chip cookies, although I think oatmeal raisin are my very favorite (huh? no chocolate there!). I learned long ago that nothing goes better with a cold beer than a Hershey bar, no almonds!
Now, I also like salads, and chicken. I am trying to stay away from red meat, except once in a while, and I am trying to develop a taste for salmon. My sister-in-law taught me how to bake salmon and serve it with a mango salsa (fresh mango, red onion and cilantro) which I could eat every day if I could afford it.
I just don't worry about eating as much as I used to. If I am hungry, I eat. If not, I don't. With Prof and Kiddo living with me right now, meals are a little more timely, but often they are both out and about and, when left to my own devices, I revert back to the bare necessities. Beer and chocolate, with a side of chicken salad. LOL!
