Drinks and snacks
Saturday, July 24, 2010
Last night we had neighbours from the old house over for drinks and snacks.
We had been to the new Walmart and Sams in Guaymas to get goodies and got quite a bit despite the products being quite different from up north.
I prepared most of it ahead of time and as I was sampling a few things here and there I noticed a few things:
- most of it tasted very salty to me - we've stopped adding table salt and wow what a difference
- I suddenly thought, maybe I should open that bottle of white wine and have a glass, it sounds good.
WTH??? I don't even drink white wine!! Where did that come from....???
I guess my brain must have associated some of the snacks with having a glass of wine, but why white - I've been drinking red for the last 15 years as white wine used to give me a stomach ache....
It goes to prove that the brain is a powerful aspect of what we put in our mouths.. even subconsciously.
- having snacks with company meant I had too much even when trying to have only a little and eat as slowly as possible. At least I did only drink water with a slice of lime, and tons of it.
Still we had a great time but my tummy is not happy this morning... can you say bloat??
