Our task? If you could choose one “main course” item and one dessert item that would, just for you, contain zero calories for the rest of your life (or zero cholesterol, zero points, or whatever your most important dietary measure is)…what would you choose?
This was harder than I thought. There are a lot of very amazing foods and recipes out there that I enjoy. Then I stopped to think about what I would like to have on a continuous basis.
One of my very favorite things is Wendy's chili. I could eat this plain, over pasta, over rice, on baked potatoes, on salad, pretty much any old way, including over burgers, hot dogs, etc. I make a mean chili myself but there is just something about this chili that I really, really like - every single time.
For the dessert option, I used the same criteria. I LOVE a lot of desserts; creme brulee, tiramisu, any cheesecake, fried ice cream, key lime pie, ad nauseum - and I mean that literally. The thing that I would eat every single day, the thing that I do eat every single day when my grandson comes to have my break with me, is Subway's peanut butter cookies. There is a very nice lady at our local Subway who makes sure that there are always enough slightly under-done peanut butter cookies for me and the Moose. If I could make sure these cookies were 0 everything, my life would be much less stressful.
