We all have our gross comfort food that we love in spite of multiple dubious qualities. For me it’s hominy and eggs all scrambled together—such an obscure combination that I had some to the conclusion it was something my mother made up one day when she really needed to go shopping and just told me it was a real food. A couple of years ago, after my semiannual-ish whipping up of a full pan on a ‘forage night’, I decided to Google “hominy and eggs” and whaddaya know. It’s a real thing. At any rate, I love it. Nobody else I know does. More for me, I say!
Bunny loves Ramen noodles. I try to avert my eyes from the nutritional content as I make it for her as an after school snack a couple of times a month. Some days ya just gotta have your thing, even if it has 5 months worth of sodium in a serving.
I thought I would try to make them at least an eensy bit more healthy by going for schmancy Cup “O” Noodles, which has a token sprinkle of veggies mixed in it. Figuring it would be a small enough amount that she’d just eat it and that it’d be a pain to remove the veggies that she’d just eat it, I served a bowl the other day.
Not so much. Girlfriend made her point.
