Observations about food and diet

Two things:

1. Recently, I have seen a Stouffer's commercial advertising their paninis. It shows a person biting into one with a lot of joy on their face while sitting on a couch during the middle of a party. I have had the Lean Cuisine Paninis and they are delicious, but that is beside the point. If I go to someone's house for a get together, no matter how casual, I expect my host or hostess to put a little more effort into the party food. I don't want a microwaveable sandwich. I want snacks, cheese, a little crudités, things with toothpicks stuck in them. Basically, I want party food and not a t.v. dinner.

2. The other thing that I discovered is reason #243 why "Katie will never be anorexic." I like it when other people make my food. Sandwiches (ironically enough) taste better when made by someone else. Eating out is usually way better than anything you can get at home. This goes against one of the hallmark rules of someone who is trying to starve themself. They want to prepare all of their food whereas I don't want to prepare ANY of it. Oh well. I guess I'll just have to settle for some other disorder.

Agreed and agreed!!! I eat convenience foods because I don't want to put the effort into preparing something, and we all know how healthy that is!! All food tastes much better when someone else makes it, even if it's something simple!

That is so true about sandwiches, I just never realized it!

I really like to make food for myself. When I was a kid, I was the pickiest eater. Even today, I’m skeptical when someone (non-professional) tries to feed me something they've made themselves. I guess that makes me either a control freak or a food snob--either way, it doesn't sound too flattering. But, I do eat really well!

It depends on what it is on whether I like when someone else makes it. If I know I can make it better at home I'll never order it out. I don't cook much but those things I do cook I do very well. Sandwiches though - my favorite sandwich is a ham and cheese on italian herbs and cheese at Subway lol.

Not to sound too cocky, but, I am the best cook I know, other than Jamie. I can, generally, make anything better than I can find in any restaurant. There are a few exceptions- Surin West, Mild Curry Chicken and deep dish pizza.

As for the microwave paninis, seving anything that is microwaved for a party is lame.
