Questions I ponder....

Some of the questions I ponder. Some of these questions have direct answers. Other's don't.

1) Why does my husband insist that in order to watch has to be accompanied by "football food". (meaning guacamole, chips, wings, beer). Is it not okay to watch a football game while having Tilapia and grilled veggies?

2) Who even invented "football food"? Next tailgating party, I'm showing up with a tofu and steamed broccoli.

3) Why does the "self check out" at the grocery store only have room 2 bags? What if I have an entire cart I'd like to "self check out". You shouldn't discriminate just because I'm anti-social and don't want to make small talk with a cashier....

4) Why do plane tickets have to be so expensive? It would be so nice to just quick make a trip to Chicago to meet my niece/nephew who will be born today! (Okay...I kind of know the answer to this since I've seen the breakdown of a plane ticket, but it still sucks!)

5) Where does one find fava beans? Do you really have to go to a middle eastern grocery store? Tried them at work the other day, and am seriously addicted! Yum!

I agree about the cost of airline tickets - would love to pop around the country visiting my loved ones more often! Ryan is such a typical guy when it comes to FB food! It's rather the opposite of women when it comes to our shower lunches - cucumber sandwiches and salad sort of stuff? God bless the difference in men & women! And I am sitting on pins and needles waiting for the news of the "new grand-baby"! I keep peaking at the clock to see if 11:00 is near!

I agree on plane tickets... they are pretty pricey these days!! Luckily most of mine this fall will be covered by work... granted, they won't be fun trips, but at least I get to do some sight seeing on my Charlotte trip since I'm able to stay for the weekend!

It is funny how certain events require certain foods. Like the shower food mom mentioned. And football food. And graduation party food. Etc, etc.

I agree on airline tickets. And it's SO CHEAP to fly in Europe. Blegh! Though I must say it's A LOT cheaper to fly in the USA then in Canada ;)

Congrats on your new niece :)

I am sooo with you about the cost of plane tickets!

Regarding fava beans, I saw them in the "exotic foods" aisle at Fry's. I have never tried them, but the can stood out at me because I thought of The Silence of the Lambs when I saw it! (Sorry, hope that doesn't affect your enjoyment of them!)
