What to eat?

“Time to eat! Great, now what will I actually eat?” This is what I say to myself almost every single day. It’s not so bad if it’s just me that I’m cooking for, but when others are involved, now I really need to ensure that I make something edible. Don’t get me wrong – I love to cook, and I do it well. It’s just a matter of getting creative enough to come up with ideas on what to eat.

So, there I was tonight, opening the fridge, the pantry, the deep freeze, the freezer, and finally, it hit me! “How about perogies” I asked thinking it might be a safe bet. Well, turns out it was. Then I thought about all the different ways to do perogies. I was planning on some fried onion and bacon, but I’m lazy and just typically boil the perogies…not tonight. They’re getting pan fried as well. Truth be told, that’s how I like them, but I’m usually too lazy to actually do the onions and bacon. Then there’s thought of sour cream. If you use it at all, do you dip it or spread it all over the top. I guess it could be the same for ketchup, but not on perogies please.

So, really the question isn’t so much how to make it, but still, what to make. Everyday, it’s the same thing. Why? Life should be easy. Things like eating shouldn’t take a lot of thought. Kind of like breathing…it should just be something natural that happens. So why isn’t it? Well, my thoughts are that we’re so caught up today on doing everything so last minute and so quickly. I remember growing up that my mom always had meals figured out, and they were always fairly complete from all the food groups.

Of course, food and diet have completely changed from 20 years ago. It was always 3 meals a day, and maybe a snack – if you were lucky. Now they’re saying five to six smaller meals a day, and you’ll get your metabolism going and loose or maintain the weight that you’re at. Crazy.

On a completely unrelated side note, did you know that for every 35 pounds a guy looses, his dick grows about 1 inch?! At least, according to the latest Cosmo issue it will.
