Not About Food



Not About Food 11

Hi hounds, hope everyone had fun ringing in the New Year. Today I was getting caught up on the Seven Deadly Sins(History Channel) and just finished Gluttony. It was very interesting as it explained how it came to be one of the 7 deadlies and also touched on the opposite end of the spectrum(holy anorexics and holy men putting ashes on their food so they wouldn't take pleasure in eating it).

Just curious-was eating considered a pleasure in your household, or did you come to enjoy it more as an adult ? Also, do any of you feel guilty for taking such pleasure in eating or all the time spent on epicurean delights? I don't!! I'm certainly no glutton, but I do think certain co-workers and family member think of my chowishness as too indulgent, maybe a bit sinful...
