Happy Food

My entire family has issues with food. Oh sure, they'll probably all end up reading this, deny it, and then be ticked at me for airing it out publicly - but dang, y'all know it's true!

Yesterday I admitted that I have hysterical-crying-when-stressed-out-syndrome, today it is emotional eating.

Or in the immortal words of Stephanie Plum: Happy Food.

I'd stopped in at Tasty Pastry and left with a day old birthday cake. The cake said Happy Birthday Larry. I don't know how Larry celebrated his birthday, but apparently it was without cake. Larry's loss was my gain. If you want to get happy, birthday cake is the way to go. This was a yellow cake with thick, disgusting, white frosting made with lard and artificial butter and artificial vanilla and a truck load of sugar. It was decorated with big gunky roses made out of pink and yellow and purple frosting. It was three layers thick with lemon cream between the layers. And it was designed to serve eight people, so it was just the right size. --Eleven On Top by Janet Evanovich

Sometimes a girl just needs happy food. I love The Boyfriend, and he does his best. He tries to make me laugh. He's supportive. But he isn't Happy Food.

Happy Food is cake. Any cake - I'm not picky. Donuts. Warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven (this is assuming I didn't eat all the raw cookie dough) and my favorite - breakfast. I'm talking real breakfast here. Pancakes. Waffles. Sausage. Bacon. ::drooling::

Which means I must go to the IHOP for lunch. Healthy? Um, probably not. But everyone knows that Happy Food is calorie free. It's a scientific fact folks. I'm pretty sure researchers at MIT conducted the ground-breaking study.

Wendy - hope today was a better day. My happy food - cheesies. If you hold them the right way, they smile at you when you eat them.

happy food is a good thing! I love browines. Problem is in the right mood my happy ass will sit down with a tray and milk and eat them all!

Betty Crocker? I think, has this lil nukable bowl you add a little water, micro it for like a 1. And poof bowl full of browine you toss when done.

Or mac and cheese... again I can sit down and eat the whole thing. This is why my apt never has food.

Hope today is a good day!
