Short Thought 177 (celebrations)

Looking at the grocery store ads this week with their many offerings for Super bowl fare, it occurs to me all American holidays and special events are celebrated by eating junk and/or overeating. There are no days traditionally commemorated en masse by consumingĀ salad. OrĀ fresh fruits and vegetables.

        I was recently at Sam’s Club, and they were sampling all the “dip” kind of foods. I was tempted by the home made guacamole, but I didn’t need a huge bag of avocados or limes. The buffalo chicken cheese dip…awesome, but I left without it.

          I would have a hard time in a Sam’s or Costco’s like that (I don’t belong but went with a friend a few times). They must move a lot of food that way. Seeing and smelling it make people go mad with desire. I’m one of those people who might talk myself into thinking I could use a bag of avocados especially if I figured out they were .50 apiece or something. I admire your restraint.

    I never pay attention to sports. When I saw lots of party foods in the grocery ad, I asked my husband if there were a big game coming up. He listens to the news, so he was aware of the Super Bowl. I don’t know what we will do while everyone else is watching the game and nibbling naughty things, but it will be highly forgettable.

      Haha. I don’t watch football either but I pay lots of attention to food ads. The Super Bowl is an excellent time to go do something that’s usually crowded. For many years I went grocery shopping during it. You’ve done me one better by having to ask your husband about it! Maybe your husband could take you to dinner? Restaurants (w/o TVs) would be smart to have specials. I wonder if any do?
