I've been sitting here watching "I USED TO BE FAT" on MTV.
You know- it's the truth in certain cultures, feeding people is showing love. Think about it..In Southern families, when someone comes to visit- it's just proper to offer food and drink during the visit. At dinners, to serve everyone's favorite is just the way it's done. Fried Chicken, Biscuits, gravy, banana pudding, cakes and pies galore.
In Italian families, same deal, Lasagna, spaghetti, manicotti, Canolli, Italian breads and Pizza....And almost everything smothered in at least ONe type of cheese and usually more than one. Greek foods are just as bad...Look at Baklava. OMG- that stuff is so good but holy cow......The calories are out of this world.
Food IS Love.
