Not a good idea

Beef stew at 12am
Was probably
Not a good idea.

But when heartache
Takes away the appetite,
Comfort food fills the void.

It doesn’t judge.
It simply does its job.
It understands!

Food Quiz: Answers and Winners

image

Hello lovely people,

Last week’s Food Quiz asked,

“In a recent post, I was having a stressful day and needed a bit of comfort food. I proceeded to indulge in a meal I hadn’t eaten in years.

Question:
What was the meal? “

Here are the answers we got:
–  Pasta
–  I’m at a complete loss
–  Soup
–  Chicken
–  Chocolate
–  Peanut Butter
–  Calamari
–  I have no idea
–  Cake
–  Chip butty
–  Mac n Cheese
–  Some sort of dessert
–  Honestly have no clue
–  Chocolate
–  Ice cream

Here is the correct answer:
Popeyes chicken. See that post here.

I don’t eat fried chicken anymore. There are just too many health issues with eating such things on a consistent basis. Add to that the long history of high blood pressure and high cholesterol plaguing my family tree,  and being proactive about my health seems to be a wiser course of action. My doctor is happy with my numbers and I’m elated about that.

So how did I end up eating Popeyes chicken? Well, I’d been craving KFC for months and there were none in my area. KFC offers healthy grilled options instead of fried. Then,  to add to my KFC nightmare,  I’d just gotten some bad news from my doctor and a swarm of emotions just bombarded me like bees and I was running for my life. I felt helpless. I felt defeated. How could all my efforts to be healthy still not be enough? How could all my blood work come back great,  and  I’m still faced with the possibility of surgery? It just didn’t seem fair!

So, in a state of confusion,  and dare I say, rebellion, I walked into Popeyes and had me some freakin fried chicken! That was the most unhealthy thing I could have eaten that day because at that point being healthy really didn’t seem to matter.

So there you have it, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!!!
