And just so you didn't think my obsession with food had disappeared, I have a comment or two to add about my recent food experiences. Though my food cravings typically tend toward the gourmet, or the really healthy (at least usually the complicated), I have recently been craving the stuff that resembles food.
Does anyone remember handisnacks? Those delightful little packages with four rectangular crackers, a little tub of orange spread that resembles cheese, and the tiny little red plastic spreader that makes it all worthwhile?
Well, they STILL EXIST! Even now that I am an adult..... they still exist! I don't remember how I got these as a child...... my mom always made sure we ate REAL food. It seems like the kind of thing my sister and I might have bought at the White Hen with my babysitting money while we were skipping a music class one Saturday, but I don't really remember. It is cheese and crackers for dinner for me! However, my dinner is actually going to be halfway between foodstuff and food...... Olive Oil and Cracked Pepper Triscuts and Port Wine Cheese Spread. Does that go better with red wine or a martini? Anyone?
