Food Talk

There's no secret about the fact that I enjoy cooking. I may not be the greatest, but I sure do enjoy it.

If I'm stressed? I cook. If I'm bored? I cook. There is nothing I like better than having people sittin' around eating a meal that I prepared. (Ok, there is SOMETHING, but we're not going into that right now!)

So what happens when I can't cook? Simple really. I food talk. No lie, I can describe a meal or dish in such a way it almost sounds p0rnographic. Really.

And I have a friend that is better at it than I am. In fact, I learned from her. We would sit in our cubies at work and Food Talk for most of the day. By lunch time, folks were rushin' out the door and it never failed - which ever resturant specialized in what we were talkin' about was PACKED. We should have charged those places for the free advertising, now that I think of it.

But seriously, the next best thing to cookin' is talkin' about it. And food can be sexy. Really. For instance when Eric mentions the Boston Creme cake he purchased for his wife and her co-workers I can't tell you where my mind went. That rich, dark chocolate. Creamy vanilla puddin' so smooth and sweet on your tongue. Add that luscious chocolate glaze and well...the combination just pushes the limits of decadence. And decadence is sexy - don't you think?

Ummm, excuse me, got a little side tracked there.........

Anyway, I just wondered does anyone else enjoy food talk like I do? Is this a common trait or am I truly as "unique" as I'm told?

... yes... decadence is sexy...

... and the food/sex connection has been pondered over for centuries...

... written like a true Hedonist, Tammi... good for you!...

Anything sensual, whether it's creamy goodness or cool, smooth bed sheets on a hot day... signals 'sexy' in my mind. I think we're just wired that way... or not. ;)

I cook too. Mostly so I can eat. I eat out of depression, boredom, or stress. Cooking is just a means.

What I'd LIKE to do, is develop a habit of starving myself when I'm bored or stressed. I'd weigh 150 lbs.
