It's Friday Baby!

I made it! Another week of work is behind me and hopefully the food I ate won't be stuck on my behind for too long. Ugh, that was so corny. Sorry folks, it's been a long week. Here's the details of today's lunch:
  • sardines with lemon juice and parsley
  • bread
  • vanilla yogurt
  • honeydew melon balls
  • sugar snap peas
Sardines! I bought a tin a couple of weeks ago and I was saving it for a Friday treat. I toasted the bread at work and snuggled those little fishies in between. Yummers tummers. Isn't it crazy, I can totally enjoy something as gross as sardines (someone at work said it looked like I was eating bait!) yet the mere IDEA of eating sweet potatoes or raw tomatoes can bring me to tears? I'm a complicated woman. But, I'm working on it.

If you can believe it, I actually eat so many things that I would've never dreamed of putting in my mouth as a child. Yogurt, mayonnaise, salsa, mushrooms, goat cheese, dates . . . I could go on and on. Mayonnaise is a particular feat because I remember the first time I saw it in 3rd grade when a friend's mom was spreading it on a slice of white bread (another thing I'd never seen before). I thought it was butter and was impressed with the spreadability. But, once I was informed that it was not butter I got totally freaked out and never tried it again until I about 15 or 16. I have similar memories and associations with all the other foods I currently don't eat. Hopefully they will slowly fade away so I can stop seeing baby diaper contents in every pumpkin pie or bowl of guacamole. And with that, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

  1. LOL, I still can't eat sardines, just something about them. I'll stick to my guacamole and artichoke spinach dips.

    Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread from Trader Joes! Try that its super yummy.
