“The Mourning Period” from Lillian’s Test Kitchen.
This is so very true. My relationship with food has changed so much since the beginning of the year and I have made my peace with many of those changes. But I am still hanging on to a few things I shouldn’t.
My quixotic quest for a Gluten Free (and now Dairy Free) pizza that isn’t a glorified tomato flavored rice cracker should show that I have some work to do here.
I saw a coworker gently daub excess grease from a beautifully orange NY style slice today at lunch and about lost my mind! I really wanted a piece of a middle of the road pizza that I would have likely passed on a year ago. Running it back through my mind, I know I would trade an awful lot just to be able to eat that pedestrian pie without getting sick.
Do you have a food you are clinging to from “the before time?” Have you let go?
