One of the great things about sobriety is how much more I appreciate food. I’ve always enjoyed cooking, but the actual consumption of food was an iffy proposition towards the end there. Alcohol is supposed to be fattening, but I dunno. I’m skin and bones. But now I just love food. I’m always looking for tasty snacks everywhere I go. And most of all, I love candy. Candy is so good. For breakfast this morning, I had two snickers and a couple of pieces of baguette, and about 4 cups of coffee.
Little did I know that would have to last me until dinner. I had to go to a different city today for work stuff, so I had planned to have KFC (which is very popular here) at the Hongqiao train station.
But I was greeted by this line at the ticket window:
By the time I had gotten my ticket, there was no time for lunch, and then work stuff took precedence. Finally, starving, I made it back home maybe an hour ago, and threw together a quick dinner: sausage, broccoli, onions, bell peppers, and cheese, all fried up in my fancy new pan. Unbelievably good. The rest of the french bread helped sop it all up. But the best was/is yet to come…
Snickers and orange soda for desert number 1. Mmmm. Coming up next is coffee ice cream, and coffee. Then after that, I think I’ll go to the pastry shop near my apartment here, and get some cake type of thing. Then I’ll probably come back and eat another candy bar. I love food so much! Thanks sobriety for reminding me how awesome food and candy are. Maybe I’ll thicken up a bit now.
