On the Evils of Plenty


This evening, after having yet another slice of leftover black forest cake, it occurred to me that it’s very hard to keep a new year’s resolution to start eating right if:

(1) one was raised in a family that never throws food away,

(2) one was raised in a family that stockpiles food as if Christmas were Armageddon, and

(3) one has just spent one’s holidays with the aforementioned family and been gifted with half the resident larder.

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
