“Tell me what you eat, and I'll tell you who you are.”
Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826), French lawyer & gastronome
How much are we influenced by what we eat? While the health of our body depends in large measure on what we eat, can we honestly say the same regarding our souls? If there's even an ounce of truth in this adage, then I'm a tinge nervous about what I'm going to show you. Stuff I ate today, for breakfast and lunch. A bit of carbo-loading once in a while isn't exactly a sin. But does all this carb in one day make me an unhealthy, inexcusable sloth? Maybe, but my exit clause is it's only for one day - this week.
Bolognese sauce bubbling happily. Don't even get me started on the smell of cooking, awwright?
I decided to mix the Chilli spaghetti with Calamari pasta in celebration of Paul the Octopus, Nostradamus Wonderamous of the World Cup 2010. Well done on the spot-on predictions, Paul!
(My theory is that the octopus' handlers just put yummier food in the box representing the football team they'd placed their higher bets on. And that Paul was a connoisseur of good food, it just takes one to know one. *winks*)
I settled down to a very happy Carbolicious lunch, indeed.
So now, tell me, who do you think I am?
