Admit Im a "Snackaholic"
actually comes to you from my aide, Terry. And it comes after
a day in January where I was seemingly a bottomless pit. I
could not stop myself. Every minute I kept thinking of snack
foods. I must say that I never actually had lunch until after
all the snacks. Then I had the brilliant idea to finish the
Greek salad that I got from House of Pizza here in Gloversville,
I need to tell you my version of a Greek salad. It is basically
iceberg lettuce with only cucumbers. NO peppers, tomatoes
or onions. Over top of this I have the restaurant sprinkle
Feta cheese, which is what makes it a Greek salad. Now, mind
you, I dont like cheese on most things I eat. Even if
I have pizza, I make sure it isnt a heavy cheese.
also give you another recommendation. Schwans Home Delivery
Service. They not only have great individual pizzas,
but the rest of their menu is major high quality stuff as
well. Herman and I regularly get their steaks and chicken.
Whats great is that they are individually shrink-wrapped
and they come frozen so they can go directly from the truck
into your freezer. Weve actually gotten some pasta meals,
Mexican food and some breakfast items as well as their ice
glanced at the clock on my computer and realized its
dinnertime, which is why I think Im writing about food.
I never did get back to you guys that night after I went for
supper, but Im doing it right now which is right after
brunch. So you dont need to worry about me running off
again for a snack (or in my case motoring off in my wheelchair).
almost gotten my aide, Terry, involved in the whole snackaholic
thing. But she has a much higher willpower than me. She usually
only eats two meals per day--breakfast and supper.
to make one final statement to you guys. Herman turned fifty-five
last month, so until my birthday in April he is thirteen years
older than me. Maybe Ill get him addicted to snack food
in his old age. But I must admit, hes always been a
snackaholic on his own.
