Simple Yet Filling- Power of Food

Walking home from school- starving like crazy, and I open the fridge to see a welcoming (not) shiny green apple.

This apple aint gonna do nothing for my stomach. At all.

Ya feel?

What is it that I want? Not so big because I’m going to have dinner soon, but not so small as an apple because if I had to eat an apple, I would probably eat more like 10. Which is not so good.

I feel this way about my life after school, but how would the people during the dust bowl feel, working for 5 cents an hour, sometimes 2 and a half, and get nothing but fried dough for a meal? Ugh, I would not be able to survive.

Although fried dough is pretty good~ I mean, come on. It’s literally doughnuts. Just no sugar.

Ummmmmm…..

Oh, ahem.

ANYWAYS surviving on just fried dough is just a bit too much oil…

SO!

I was thinking, what if I could find a way for them to get a dollar amount (at that time) and make something that is good and also filling?

6/1 Quote of the Day

” There is no sight on earth more appealing than the sight of a woman making dinner for someone she loves.”  ~Thomas Wolfe

There’s a saying in korea that marriage with a beautiful woman lasts about 1 yrs, marriage with a kind woman is 3 yrs, and marriage with a woman who can cook well lasts forever.

Aren’t I glad I can cook? :b

5/31 Quote of the Day

I think that food ties us to our community and our traditions, and it’s the thing that makes us feel good and connected.

-Kathy Freston.


This, I know for sure is true. With food, you can connect with people and become closer, have a stronger relationship. Something about food just really ties things together well and makes you happy inside. At my house, we eat dinner at the table together, all four of us. Even though sometimes I feel like I’m too busy with homework and exams to eat dinner with the family, afterwards I feel better and happier. The dinner releases some of my stress and makes me take a break for studying for a while, as well as allow myself to have a daily chat with my family. As you can probably tell, my family’s pretty close. 🙂

5/25 Quote of the Day

“Anyone who thinks they’re too grown up or too sophisticated to eat caramel corn, is not invited to my house for dinner.”

-Ruth Reichl

That’s probably what I would say. You’re never too old to have the little pleasures in life! Who cares if an adult eats something ‘childish’ like candy once in a while? That doesn’t determine who you are. And who are they to judge you? Just a quick little remind to be yourself and let no one stop you from being who you really are. Stay strong, fellow chickeneers.

5/15 Quote of the Day

“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations.”

― Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance

Today I came home and I ate a lot of food…. It’s become my comforting best friend these days. Gah, I hope I can forgive myself now, because I didn’t do so well on a test today. 😦 But besides today, I think food helps me forgive people so I really like this quote. 🙂

4/28 Quote of the Day

“If people say if you eat dessert before dinner it will ruin your appetite- won’t eating dinner before dessert ruin your appetite for dessert?”

-Unknown

So what will it be? Dessert or Dinner? Maybe both at the same time?

4/5 Quote of the Day

“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”

-Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright

I heard that in France, workers are given at the least 2 hours to eat lunch. Then for dinner, they have around 4-5 courses in one meal. Man, if only…

2/24 Quote of the Day:

“My doctor told me I had to stop throwing intimate dinners for four unless there are three other people.”

– Orson Welles

Haha, I love this quote! It’s probably not a good idea to keep doing these dinners though. 🙂
