Tuesday is a fun blog day for me because I get to share nutrition choices and some yummy foods I have whipped up during the last week or so. Notice I used the word “fun” describing food. I am a confessed emotional eater defined as –I like to enjoy my food! I have heard all about the people who “eat for fuel not for taste” (said in my deep macho man voice-haha) and I have even tried it but, it’s just not me. 😦 It makes me happy to see well plated food and I think bright thoughts when aromatic smells are wafting through the air and… You get the drift!- haha! By the same token I experience contrasting emotions when my food is not so hot:(. I get disappointed, bored, and even ill if it’s not right:/.
I personally think this makes for a well-rounded and in depth food experience but I know it’s not the PC thing to say( that one is an emotional eater). But did you really read this blog post for PC? I didn’t think so! Let’s dig in! First up: Flapjacks!
After making these Flapjacks the first time weeks ago, I have had a little practice. As you can see, I have these “Jackies” cooked to perfection ( is naming food emotional eating?) These were ala strawberry shortcake as an ode to a departing summer! You guys, Im gonna tell you the truth, they were so good I didn’t want it to end and thought about licking the plate! I didn’t though, seriously, I didn’t!
Light,Love and Good Eats!
