too much of a good thing

Thursday, January 30, 2014

For the love of all that is holy, will I ever learn?

I may have mentioned it here once or twice before, but I tend to get obsessed with things, including foods. I've blogged about hoarding M&M's and falling in love with prunes and dried apricots. One obsession I haven't blogged about is salsa. But it's not just any salsa. It's the salsa from an Italian restaurant (yes Italian, not Mexican) in the town where I grew up.

I no longer live in that town, but my grandmother lives near there. So when I visit her on the weekends I stop by the restaurant and get a pint of salsa to go. This week I bought a pint on Sunday and then my mom bought me a pint on Tuesday.

As of Wednesday, I have had too much salsa. It still smells amazing, but the thought of putting it on my food (the way I have done every day this week) makes me want to never eat again. Ever.

For now.

Thankfully (sarcasm!), I have a new obsession currently on the upswing. YAMS!

Yams are absolutely delicious. I've had 4 in the last 48 hours.

    Salsa and yams are my top two obsessions too:). Closely followed by oatmeal and strawberries. My old obsessions are still lurking in the background, waiting to pounce (French fries, Chips, Pizza) but my new ones push them away. Have a wonderful week!

    I kind of do this, too. I get obsessed with something, go crazy, and then I don't touch again for months! I even do it with music.. I'll play a song to death and then that's it. At least it's healthy stuff!

    Yum, I love salsa too. Maybe you can freeze the rest if there is left over? Yams/sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods!

    You too, eh?

    I tend to eat the same things for days (occasionally weeks), and then get totally sick of them and move on to the next "obsession". It doesn't help that I apparently am physically incapable of making a single-meal's worth of things like stir-fries, soups, stews, sauces, or even salads --- there's always enough for 3 meals or more. I keep telling myself that the soups, stews, and sauces are for one meal and to freeze the rest --- but the Man is worse than I am, and almost always wants to have the same thing for the next few days...

    The worst of it is that the "obsession" always seems to end immediately after I have purchased a whole bunch of whatever-it-is. I end up looking at it in disgust for a few days, and then throwing it away (unless it's something I can freeze). I wouldn't dream of trying to figure out how much money and food I have wasted because of this --- it would horrify me!

    The current obsession is with Roma tomatoes (with onions, olive oil, spices, and red wine vinegar), which apparently are required with everything. I started worrying about myself when I was contemplating if tomatoes would taste good in my morning cereal...

    Please let me know if you ever figure out how to *not* do this --- I've been like this forever, and have seen no hope of fixing it yet!

    I've never heard of Italian salsa. But why not.
    Yes to yams! Yams, cilantro and a little butter. My favorite.

    Good luck with the obsession.
