    Overheard on the escalator at work this morning:

    "...I eat healthy, I put granola in my yogurt every morning...and corn is like my favourite vegetable, I eat it all the time. Did you know in some countries they don't eat corn at all? They say 'it's just for the animals.' How crazy is that?"

    Speaking as someone who happily downed endless bowls of white rice and plain pasta... it is possible to actually love it by itself. Or with salt. And yes, sometimes I would eat the topping (salt) and skip the pasta.

    I'm sure you're right in the vast majority of cases, though!

    I stand corrected! Thanks for enlightening me. Lately I've been learning more and more that things that I "know" to be true are sometimes not. It helps me be less judgemental and think things through more analytically.

    I'm eating a burger with bacon and green chiles over a salad of spring greens, toms, roasted red peppers, and cukes, all dressed with pico de gallo. A good friend of mine is sitting next to me eating a plain hamburger (bun meat bun) and french fries.
    He looks over at my salad and goes "How can you stand to eat that much vegetation, especially with a burger?" I've never seen him eat anything that could be called a vegetable.
    I look at him. "How can YOU not?"

    Nice! Did he have any sort of coherent response to that?

    (Also -- sounds delicious!)

    He shrugged and went back to his burger.

    I did enjoy the taste of pasta but not plain. I always went light on the sauces so it wouldn't obscure the taste of the pasta, though. Now rice is another matter. I could eat bowls of basmati just on it's own. If they made a perfume that smelled like basmati, I'd bathe in it.

    Which is why I simply cannot have either of them in the house - can't be trusted with them. Yet. Well - if ever. Quite proud of myself that I've managed to stay away from them for so long. (Plenty of pork chops and butter have helped with that. )

    pasta isn't quite as addictive for me, but it is really grand seasoned with butter, salt and parmesan cheese. white rice, otoh, is quite tempting, especially with butter (whereas butter all by itself isn't as tempting). i used to eat it every day as a kid when staying with my (very overweight vegetarian) babysitter. they'd offer tofu concoctions and other soy-based crap (never real food), but all i would eat was the minute rice with margarine.
