ON THE BACK BURNER

March 10

I decided not to eat the skin on my baked chicken. I know in my head that the skin is not good for me, but in my heart, I love skin. I even like the crispy skin on grilled fish. It was a real hardship not to eat that skin. But I prevailed. I won't tell you that when I went back to the kitchen, I licked the herbs off of that skin. That was enough to make me not feel deprived. I do love fat. Now that I think about it, so did my father. Give me a steak with a border of fat and I will show you a happy eater. You will never see a border of fat left on my plate. It must be in my genes.Like father, like daughter. I don't think that I passed this on to my children. They don't know what they are missing.

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.
