ON THE BACK BURNER

july 3

I was ironing Sunday morning with the TV on. Maybe that is why I like to iron. I can watch programs that I wouldn't admit to any other day of the week. It was a toss up between a Christian minister and an infra commercial program. I am comfortable with my Judaism, so I went with the commercial program. It was brilliant. They were selling a diet plan. It wasn't the plan, but what went with it that I found so useful. Part of the price was that they give you portion sized dishes to put your food in. Anything that went in that small bowl was permissible. Ever eat 1/2 cup of pasta.? Brilliant. I tried that at lunch today. Whatever I fit in this TupperWare small bowl, I ate. You want french fries and a hamburger ? If they fit in that bowl, you can eat it. What perfect portion control. Now, knowing that I can eat anyone under the table , if it is spaghetti, I can control the amount that I let myself eat. I inhale spaghetti. Not all pastas, just spaghetti. And what about desserts. There was another bowl for that. If your cheese cake could fit in the little bowl, eat it. I love that . I don't like cheese cake, so I would smoosh a sticky bun in it. I was almost ready to send my money in, but I needed to refill the water in the iron. I was saved.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
