Irrational Steak and Taters

“Food is not rational. Food is culture, habit, craving and identity.”

~Jonathan Safran Foer~

Steak and potatoes are culture

Smoky, charred, creamy and pure

Eaten by a hungry human vulture

Chocolate is serious habit

That demands a daily hit

or she shall have a crying fit

Mac and cheese is a bowl of craving

This affliction needs saving

Of thee melty cheddar we sing

Food is part of our identity

We consume pancakes with glee

To eat, to drink, to be

Irrational is thy food

Elevates our mood

Deliriously tasty good

      Me too, Shelley, although I did go out to dinner last night and had delicious beef short ribs and more mashed taters. Can’t get enough of the taters…

    You started out strong and added in all the right ingredients. It’s 8:00 am and I am hungry. Potatoes must soon be mashed. And all things cheese and chocolate should be added to the mix.

    My wife and daughter are vegetarians. My son and I are not. Your photo demonstrates why I will never give up being a meat-eater. To not want a taste of that steak is totally irrational.

      I’m with you. As much as I love vegetables and will also eat veggie burgers, I could not totally give up meat. It’s just too good.

      The steak I had at Texas Roadhouse was so yummy…maybe because I hadn’t had steak in a while or maybe because it really was that good. Rationally speaking, of course! 😉

      Red Lobster has been making me crazy with their ad for lobster mac and cheese. My tummy says NO dairy, while my cravings say JUST DO IT. I’m trying to decide who to listen to.

        Aw, this is sad. I understand. The other day, my hairdresser told a story about a woman who’s allergic to chocolate, and a couple of times a year, she just sucks it up and gives herself a shot. So sad.
        Moo’s got more allergies to the food color than I do, and now and again, she takes the plunge as well.
        Being human. It’s sad sometimes.

    I think I could give up chocolate before cheese. Cheese is multi-purpose and always a good food choice. Mmmmm – cheeeeeese.

    Sorry – what were you talking about again … ?
