The Good Eatah?

The past week has me questioning the nickname that my Grandmother gave me (and the title of this blog). You see, I've been sick. Flu-like symptoms, one-hundred and one temperature, and... no appetite. Zero! Zilch! Nada! It's coming back, kind of, but I'm beginning to force-feed myself.

This is really strange for a few reasons. You see, I'm not one of those people who forgets to eat a meal. Only once before have I been sick enough to lose my appetite. And rare is the day I don't get excited about what I'm going to make myself for lunch. The weirdest thing? Forty-eight hours went by without me eating. That is just unheard of for me. Really, it's mind-blowing. Even at my sickest I'm usually able to gain an appetite by turning on the food network for a minute, or peaking at a cooking magazine. But not this time.

So, blog readers -- forgive my lack of posts. I blame it on the sickness (I should add I was also attached to the couch and unable to bring myself to shower even, for most of those 48 hours). I know! I'll try watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives -- that will get my mouth watering again and I'll be back with a vengence. If that doesn't work, I'll just keep looking at the photo at the top of this post of my niece while singing the L.L. Cool J song "I'm gonna knock you out. Mama said knock you out" because it makes me laugh. And I think she looks like a mini-boxer warming up for a fight in this photo.
Or it could just be the lack of food has gotten to my head and I'm halucinating...

So sorry to hear you were sick! (And glad you're on the mend). It seems as if these things go round every time the seasons change. . . my honey is just getting over something similar.

Hope you're up and about (and cooking and eating) again soon!

Ricki, I think your carob pancake photos may have cured my non-appetite. They look awesome!!

Thanks, Maude! She's is so adorable I just can't stop looking at pictures of her.

Vittoria, thanks so much for the well wishes. I haven't been down like that in ages, but I'm almost back to 100%!
