A meal is a meal or is it something else?

"I'm not looking for an experience, I just want a meal" If you know me, then you know that is not something that would come out of my mouth. And actually, I'm not really looking for an experience either - I just want a really great meal. Not JUST a meal. I hate what I refer to as a wasted meal. That's when I'm really hungry and I don't have anything to eat that I want and I just have to stop and eat something. For me that's not usually something like a fast food meal, but actually just not something I'm craving. I like to think about something and then either get it or make it. Eating is a joy. A pleasurable experience for me. I love the tastes, the textures, going to the market and seeing what's in season, planning the meal, serving it to someone and seeing the joy and satisfaction on their face too. People get wrapped up in what they should or shouldn't eat - that's just sad to me. I try to eat what makes me happy - within reason! Moderation is key if you ask me. I'll even include a fast food meal in the mix - just more like once a year, not weekly. Here's to no wasted meals - make it count!
"Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!"
