beirut sunset

WHEN NIGHT FALLS OVER NEW ORLEANS, BEVERLY HILLS, BOSTON
OR BEIRUT, THE EXCITEMENT,
YOU PUT ON YOUR FINEST, GATHER YOUR POISE, WIT
AND SOPHISTICATION ABOUT YOU
AND VENTURE OUT,
ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST LIGHTS IN THE BIG CITY THIS NIGHT.
IN THE RESTAURANT, GLASSWARE TINKLES GENTLY,
CONVERSATION
SURGES AND LAPSES, AND SOFT LIGHTING LENDS EVERY MAN, WOMAN
AND DISH A SPECIAL ALLURE.
DESSERT IS SERVED.
AND THE TRUE EXCITEMENT BEGINS.

food craving is an intense desire to consume a specific food, stronger than simply normal hunger.  According to Marcia Levin Pelchat “It may be the way in which foods are consumed (e.g. alternating access and restriction) rather than their sensory properties that leads to an addictive eating pattern.”

I did have one of those FOOD CRAVINGS last night. Was sitting there, and just felt like something sweet. You know, … it’s late … the TV is on …. had dinner a while ago …. and you REALLY wanted sugar. Well, I did …. called the grocery store from the corner to deliver some sliced bread, got some milk and eggs out … and voilà … french toast ….

…. now c’mon on … real quick …. :

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • pinch of salt

.

  • Take four slices of sliced bread
  • spread some cherry confiture on it
  • slice some bananas and divide them on the cherried bread
  • cover with some more sliced bread
  • dip in the egg/milk mixture
  • throw onto a generously buttered pan
  • cook until golden brown
  • sprinkle with some icing sugar
  • OR drown in maple syrup (that would be MY choice)
  • and you have breakfast late night snack

This shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to prepare, and definitely not more that a couple of minutes to devour ….
