Please Don’t Pass The Pasta


Sunday, September 10, 2006


I made a big dish of my famous three cheese baked ziti for my family the other day.  It looked so very good.  Because I did not have the time, the sauce came out of a jar (yeah, I know, but I did not have the time) and included parmesan, ricotta and mozzarella cheese, and I did “doctor” up the sauce.  I did try out little tastes from time to time to test the taste, but I was unable to enjoy anything more than a few pieces I had in substitution for some of the carbs, proteins and fats for the meal.  When the portion is small, and not satisfying because you want more, it is not really enjoyable.  I have read that “the first bite always tastes the best.” This might be true for some people, but it is usually not true for me for most things.  I can enjoy a steak from the first bite to the last as well as some other dishes I make.  Actually, for me, my first taste is the most critical and I am trying to break down the ingredients and tastes within that bite, so it is not usually the most enjoyable.  I eat lots and lots and lots of salad each day because I like to feel satisfied at the end of a meal.  Other’s may be satisfied with a little piece of chicken, but after almost three months of dieting, grilled chicken and salad, even with a piece of multi-grain bread just does not do it for me.


Friday I was talking to a friend about my love of cooking and cooking for others, but not being able to enjoy the food myself.  Sometimes, even with my own family, I am slightly annoyed when they enjoy something I cannot eat.   One person I know is allergic to chocolate and she said that she knew what I was going through, when she is around others who are eating chocolate and she cannot have any.  She can understand to a certain amount, but at least there are other sweet substitutes.  But what substitute is there for food?
