Waiting at a doctor's appointment increases my waistline as I'm studying mouth watering recipes.
I’ll let you in on a little secret of mine, I like to cook. Plain and simple, I like to cook. After twenty five years in the Fire Department where I did most of the cooking and being raised by a mother who stayed in the kitchen, it just seemed to come natural and the more I cooked the more I liked it. To this day I love to get in the kitchen and do a little cooking or baking. I like to grill also and it seems I am always experimenting with new things. Some turn out great and some not so great, but hey, experimenting is what cooking is all about.
So today I was in a doctor’s office with my wife waiting for our turn when it dawned on me, my taste buds go crazy in a doctors office. I always go for the magazines with the recipes. I am constantly tearing out pages and at some point in the future giving them a try. I get hungry looking at the things to cook. I honestly feel I could gain a couple of pounds reading all the recipes and I think that the longer the wait the more my waistline expands. Next time I’ll weigh at home before I go and then in the doctor’s room and I’ll swear I will have put on a coule more pounds. Oh well, I guess we all need a vice or two.
I wonder if is the power of advertising or simply a passion for something I really like doing that gets my taste buds going and stirring up those hunger pains. At any rate, I came home with two great ideas and if I have time I will give them a try this weekend. One is for stuffed baked chicken and I have already added my own ingredients to it giving it a little Mediterranean flair. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
