I tried, I really tried to cook something a little healthier for my sick hubby yesterday. He has been at home for 3 days and I thought I would go to the store and get bacon to make him his favorite sandwich, a BLT…but…when I got there, I thought to myself, if he gets worse and has to go to the hospital and they take his blood, only to find out butter runs through his veins instead of the red stuff, I will really look like a bad wife. I decided to buy turkey bacon instead of the real stuff. It made me so proud that I was buying something halfway healthy, I pranced down the isle to check out actually looking at organic lettuce and tomatoes, but decided to save money and buy the ones with lots of pesticides instead; that way, I have money left over to stop on the way home and buy myself a cupcake…a treat for buying healthy turkey bacon. When I get home, I wake him up, (bless his heart, he has only slept about 7 hours today already) to let him know I just bought food to make his fav BLT…He got so excited, he actually opened his eyes and almost rolled off the heating pad. It was great explaining to him that since I was really concerned for his health, beginning today, I had substituted turkey bacon for the real thing. You would have thought I was serving him wheat germ sprinkled over alfalfa sprouts for lunch, by the look on his face. He told me that the only way he would eat the turkey bacon is if I fried it in butter, to give it taste and color. It was then and there that I decided that I am through with trying to be fit and healthy. Butter is our life and bacon is our game. We might not live to be 100, but the years we have will taste mighty good….am headed to the store as we are almost out of butter and I have to make oatmeal cookies for our snack tonight…they must be good for us, they have oatmeal in them, which we have heard on commercials, can help reduce cholesterol. If we eat enough of them, maybe our cholesterol numbers will come down under 300, Will be curious to see if the oatmeal cookies do the trick.
