Food For Thought: Food Unites All!

Food? Yes. I always answer yes to food, unless I have eaten too much. I just can't get enough of it. It fills me up and satisfies me in everyway. I love all types of food from chicken nuggets to the most prestige steak you can buy. If you are food, I will eat you. Unless you are cheese or pickles. Then I will not eat you. I am usually not picky when it comes to eating, but those are two exceptions.

Eating with my family is always great. We can have a laugh while enjoying our food and it provides a sense of security. When I am eating, wherever I am, it makes me feel safe. There is just some factor in the food that makes me feel secure, especially with my family. I like this feeling very much. I can just lay back and have no worries while I’m eating. Usually one of my fears while eating is, “Am I damaging my teeth?!!?”. This is one of my main concerns, and it usually arouses after I have finished a meal. Mostly because the meal either included excess amounts of sugar, or if it was straight up candy.

For holidays we usually all get together and celebrate. One of the main events is dinner of course. There is no “special” food that we make. For example, this Thanksgiving we will be having what everyone else is most likely to have; turkey; stuffing; mashed potatoes; and gravy. Before we eat though, we usually watch the Dallas Cowboys football game because it is my dad’s favorite football team
