Decent Food? But Why?
And I have no excuse - this had nothing to do with health. As a matter of fact, I went to the free health screening put on by the Tulsa Department of Health at the YMCA today and got perfect scores in everything. I was very pleased with myself and joked it up with the nurse who was explaining all the results. One test was new to me - they measure your waist and your hips and come up with a ratio to decide how healthy you are. Now, anyone who knows me knows that I have an abnormally (at least I think it is) large waist, and I said to the nurse that I was always worried about it being a health concern. But my ratio was excellent, so I said I guessed the big hips were what saved me. As we were already laughing about it, the nurse said how nice it was to be saved by having a fat arse. And then we couldn't stop laughing. Did you know that low Triglycerides are associated with low stress? Yes, mine are pretty low.
Oh, before I forget, I tried a new fish today, Basa, (on the plate above) and had high hopes for it based on the name, even though the fish guy went out of his way to explain that this is a mild flavored fish and was not "firm flesh". What he should have said is that if you want Cream of Wheat Cereal that tastes like it was stored next to the Fish Sticks in the refrigerator, this is your fish!
