I Want To Eat Something Really Yummy, But What?

  I really want to eat something delicious, something yummy, something that will be a real pleasure, maybe a little crunchy, or maybe a little salty.  Or sweet.  Or maybe tart. 

  When I open the fridge, what are the possibilities?  Milk.  Orange juice.  Ginger ale.  Fruited yogurt.  Naah.    Down in the drawer.  Romaine lettuce.  Radishes.  Celery.  Carrots.  Well, I could make a salad.  Naah.

  What's in the freezer?  Some ugly frozen black bananas waiting for me to put them in banana bread batter.  Frozen blueberries.  Frozen raspberries.  Frozen green beans.  Frozen chicken breasts.  Naah.

  Something yummy.  What's up in the cabinet?  Cream of wheat.  Raisin Bran cereal.  Quaker Oats cereal.  Blueberry muffin mix.  Hmmmmm.  Maybe.  They won't be ready though for another 30 minutes or so. 

  Next cabinet, let's see.  Jars of tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, navy bean soup.  Boxes of lasagna, spaghetti, penne rigati, rotelle, and ziti.  Do I feel like cooking?

  Something really yummy.  On the countertop I have a bowl of apples, oranges, and pears.  Good for me, yes.  Naah.

  What do I want?  I have no idea.  I don't think I'm going to have anything really yummy tonight. 

   It's getting late.  I could scramble some eggs, pop some bread in the toaster, make a cup of tea, and just be glad to have something palatable, something comfortable and familiar, and I can enjoy that, I think. 

  Yummy might be for another day.

Have you tried waffles with ice cream? Yum! :)

I'm glad there's not just me that wanders round the kitchen hunting for "summat yummy" sayin naaaaaaaah at whatever suggestions i or anyone else comes up with. Then my fifteen month old daughter wanders in and points to jelly sweets (yum) or raids her cupboard for fruit flakes (yum) or crackers or something... the usual solution is something we call "crap on a plate" which involves a little bit of everything... Chunk of cheese, blob of cottage cheese, some slices of beetroot, ham, left over chicken, homemade meatballs.... keep going till the plate is full and enjoy! although now i've mentioned meatballs I've just remembered that they are reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally good... but good enough for me to stop being lazy long enough to make them?? naaaahhh... ;) x x

I'm coming right over. Chile rellenos and enchiladas are so delectable, especially homemade! I have a friend from Rosarito who is here until spring, and she makes homemade Mexican food all the time. I'm so happy I befriended her five years ago when she first came here. I found her and her daughter at the pool, and I asked them "Is this where the party is?" Peggy answered, "Well, we certainly could have a party here. I'm game!" I was looking for the Labor Day weekend barbecue that had been advertised on the bulletin boards at both pool areas. However, I had already been to the west end pool and no one was there. Then I went (in my car with all the food, drinks, and desserts I had made) to the east end pool at the other side of our community, and no one except my friend and her daughter were there! I brought all the food from the car and we had our own party. I found out later that the original party had been cancelled. I must write a story some day about that experience. Stories about how people meet are always so interesting!

This humorous story was all too familiar to me!! I go through that same routine looking for something special all the time! I am making chili rellenos and vegan enchiladas tonight.. why don't you join me!! (don't laugh, it is very good!)<br />

Though Sugarfooties triple chocolate ice cream sounds pretty awesome right now too!!

Yes! Pretzels with peanut butter! Sounds good. THANK YOU for commenting!<br />
Raining and pouring in Palm Springs with more to come! Hope you are having a great day!

I love that you are commenting on my stories. This was just a silly story, but I am happy that someone like you appreciated the humor.<br />
<br />
I hope you are having a great day. It is pouring in Palm Springs, California, for four days now. No worries. We really and truly need the rain here.

You are one funny lady! I'm so glad we've met!<br />

Unfortunately, my yummy moments are too often answered by the call of Publix's Triple Chocolate ice cream (very chocolate ice cream with fudge ripples in it and small pieces of chocolate candy--too goo to believe!)<br />
<br />
I love your story, and I wish I could write as well as you!
