Good morning everyone. Let me start by saying I am not expecting. But I am incredibly hungry all the time. Non-stop, actually. Oh… and by the way, sorry for not adding to the blog yesterday. I got a little side-tracked with another project and ran out of time. Anyway, I was telling Patrick yesterday that I feel hungry all the time and don’t know why. Everyone in the news room seemed to agree with me that their appetites just don’t feel satisfied and we all seem to suspect that it could be the weather. I have been craving things that I NEVER eat. Like fried chicken. And biscuits. I guess that means my body wants something drenched in fat. So, why am I so hungry? Does it have something to do with our body’s natural tendency to put on fat when it’s cold? Or trying to overcome the winter blues with food? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have been watching too much of the Food Network when Evan takes his nap in the afternoon.
Anyway… as if someone at Wells Fargo Arena knew my insatiable desire for comfort food, this morning when we came back into the newsroom after the show, there was an Apple Pie on the counter. One of the women in marketing brought it by as part of the promotional material for the Super Bull Series going on at the Well this weekend. Not sure what Apple Pie and bull riding have in common, but I don’t care. This pie was the bomb. And I was the first to dig in. It’s almost gone and as I write this it’s not even 8 a.m. No, I didn’t eat it all. Just one piece. But I wanted more until I saw how many grams of fat are in one slice. Must be all the lard used in the crust.
