Why is it that bad things are so darn GOOOOOOD sometimes? At our Autumn House gathering earlier this week, my friend Sandy brought along these:
Who would have even thought they'd be good? They're clearly out-and-out junk food of the purest kind. In fact, a nutrition site on the internet gave both of them a D grade. And I'm kind of embarrassed to confess I like them, but darn are they GOOOOOOOD together! You just put a handful (or two) of corn chips in a bowl, heat up some cheese dip, and spoon it over the corn chips. I'm naming the resultant dish People of Walmart Nachos. Of course, this treat is about as Mexican as my former roommate's Velveeta cheese and Spam lasagna was Italian. But at least it tastes better. A LOT better! I can tell I'm going to have to smuggle this Fritos/Tostitos cheese dip combo home from the grocery store sometime soon.
When you go to the grocery store and buy "bad" things, do you ever hide them in your grocery cart under the veggies? Do you even buy MORE "good" stuff so the checker won't think poorly of you and your nutritional choices? Or have you battled temptation for so long, it's second nature and you're never tempted?
What's your favorite food indulgence? You know; it's that thing you go for when you've decided to give in and give up temporarily. Or what you might chose as a food reward; or perhaps you allow yourself to eat it only on holidays and other special occasions?
I suspect most of us would say "chocolate," but do you have a favorite variety or brand? Do you have any "rituals" for indulging in your special treats? Close your eyes for a moment and imagine the perfect, completely satisfying food experience. Now go ahead: tell us about it.
