OK, that is a headline to an ad I saw recently. I can answer
the ad question with aplomb: some donuts; cheese and for sure: pork chops.
Now don’t get me wrong, I eat other things, also: pasta and
salami of various Italian names, and maybe some sausages and meatballs. My diet
is extensive and varied just like yours, but deep down in my stomach somewhere
lays a few of these choices on the dietary pyramid. I ascribe to the 4 food
groups, for a balanced diet, they being pork chops, pasta, cheese and donuts.
My doctor asked me if I eat a balanced meal and I can honestly say: Yes Doctor,
very balanced, I can eat on one foot or the other while standing and can change
feet at a moments notice.
I used to be a picky eater, I’d pick at this and that but
eat it all, maintaining my philosophy of you can’t pick your family but you can
pick at your food!

As a small child, I was encouraged by my grandmother and
aunts to eat. They felt I was too skinny so: “Mangia Joe-Joe” was the order of
the day. Mom on the other hand felt I was a human vacuum, and to keep her
budget in check: would hide some of the stuff, like cookies and donuts. Fortunately, I never ate a pork chop that wasn’t cooked. But between the two
camps, I agreed with my grandmother and aunts, after all, there were more of
them than of my mother: FIFTY MILLION FRENCHMEN CAN’T BE WRONG!
There are other things besides eating though; after all you
have to cook it. I like to cook and will experiment, sometimes grandly,
sometimes subtly, slipping by plates of test kitchen foods on TLW (The Little
Woman) on a regular basis. Most of my experiments have been a success: the
problem is I forget to record how I made something so the same thing is hardly
made more than once.
And so I will leave you with this question: What’s for
