Eating alone is not fun.
I don’t think it is good for the soul or the stomach. My doctor even recommends me to go have meals with friends.
I snack a lot, incorporating fruits and vegetables with chips and nuts, trying my best to eat healthy.
I am not a good cook, adequate that we never starved, but not fond of cooking. I love eating, though.
I haven’t really cooked since my husband passed away and am beginning to crave for meals. Not just snacks. So, I started to cook a little again.
When I watch Anthony Bourdain eating and drinking on TV, I get the urge for a steak and a glass (or two) of red wine, remembering the time when my husband and I were visiting Firenze.
After waiting and waiting, we finally got inside the Uffizi museum and saw the Birth of Venus. When we came out of the museum, we were hungry, starving, and ran inside a restaurant not caring what they served or if they were any good. The waitress was nice and recommended us a steak and a bottle of Brunello to share.
Mmmmmmm mmm mmm.
Great conversations and a great bottle of wine always go well with a great meal.

“Tell us about your favorite meal, either to eat or to prepare. Does it just taste great, or does it have other associations?”
