We have all been there, we step away from a group at a gathering, then return just in time to hear how they describe you to others.  Sometimes this can be a concern, or illuminating, and often both.  That is the case with how often, in my absence, I am described as a “large eater”  a “ferocious eater,” and even compared to a boa constrictor in my ability to consume pounds of food in one sitting, then simply slink away to digest.  Just as frequently, I am asked the simple question, “how? or better yet, “why?”  I think it is a one-two combination of genetics and activity level.  I do not do well at a desk, though I am there right now.  I am only content to be here at a desk because I have just eaten my farm girl seasonal favorite…avocado egg sandwich on toast.  It is simple enough to make, and it should serve two, though, I eat the whole thing.  Each of these items except for the bread and mayo were gathered on site thanks to the hens, the trees and the garden. So here goes big eaters, I know who you are.  Be proud, and eat well.

My love of food and cultures have taken me around the world, dropping me into my current location in Hawaii. I have been loving cooking, photography, gardening, baking, and outdoor adventuring, since back when I was filling a Girl Scout sash with badges. My locations may change, and my activities continue to grow in number, but deep down inside, I still love curling up with a good book, squealing about in a classic car, and making stick-to-your-ribs meals out of homegrown goods.
