Did you know that you can buy Captain Crunch with marshmallows? Cute little colored marshmallows just like the ones you picked out of Lucky Charms as a kid, only with Captain Crunch you want to eat the crunchy bits too!
I’m only willing to pay for this version, though. I’m not a complete idiot.
I’m telling you this to help you understand my relationship with food. The less I have to interact with my food, the happier I am. I don’t want to cook dinner, ever. I never cook breakfast, ever. Lunch is my favorite meal, usually a sandwich piled with spinach, tomato, avocado and Wisconsin Bread and Butter pickles. I enjoy eating out but not because I have a culinary bent pr any kind of taste, I just love that it wasn’t me who cooked it. It’s the ultimate luxury, sitting down at a table and being brought food. And I’m usually satisfied by the fare I’m served, until recently, until I hit that time of life when drive through meals just aren’t as satisfying as they used to be. Until I watched the first episode of Netflix’s Chef’s Table.
I just finished the last episode of Season 2. I feel such a need to go to Chicago and pay something north of $500 to eat at a little place called Alinea. I have such a desire to watch a chef create their art on the table in front of me.
I aspire to pick up a spoon after feasting with my eyes and brain and still not know where to start.
….and I need to eat balloons for dessert.
