Density is Mass Over Volume Oooh. It hurts, it hurts. How much food can I stuff into my body? My body density has increased immensely. If you threw me in water, I probably would sink. I'm recovering from my July 4 celebration, which was just spectacular. I had a barbecue at my house and had a whole slew of people over. Being someone who always follows through on my promises, the food was abundant, especially the "carne." Plus, a lot of guests brought stuff too. Some people are about variety, whereas some people focus on quantity. At my house, it's both. No compromise. That's just the way it is. Here was the menu:
Tortilla Chips with a choice of Angi's Special Dip or traditional tomato salsa
Chinese "Cold Noodle" Salad
Garden Vegetable Skewers (eggplant, white onion, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and assorted bell peppers)
Grilled Corn, Chinese-style
Baked Chicken Drumsticks, marinated with Mom's special sauce
Korean-style Short Ribs
Assorted Hot Dogs
Almond Tofu with Fruit
Apple Pie a la Mode
Assorted Ice Cream from Fosselman's and Fubuki, featuring vanilla, cookies and creme, and green tea flavors.
We didn't even get around to grilling the fish! Any wonder I can't move? My stomach is too full. My plan to "get in shape" has not been going well, as you can see...But I'm not going to be too hard on myself because my philosophy has always been: "When you are on holiday, you are on holiday...including your diet." Frankly, if you were to do something as crazy as restrain yourself at one of my famous barbecues, you'd be doing me and yourself a disservice and disrespecting the holiday. It'd be freaking unpatriotic. Did the Founding Fathers hesitate from doing what they thought was right when the British were all up in their face? I think not! So do you think you should hesitate from gorging yourself until your stomach explodes because some diet says you shouldn't? Yeah, that's right. I thought so.
After we ate, we headed over to Lacy Park to watch fireworks. As a kid, the fireworks show was kinda lame, but it has improved immensely! It was actually really good! I had a great time sitting at the park, which I have always liked, with a great crowd of people whose sole purpose in being there was to just enjoy themselves with their family and friends. There were so many cute children running around with glowsticks and dressed up in red, white, and blue. I've always like July 4 because (1) it's in the summer, (2) it's an event that demands a barbecue, and (3) unlike other holidays, you don't get that tension that comes from everyone being stressed about making their fancy dinner perfect or rushing to buy the right gifts. One of my favorite things in the world, I think, is just to spend time with my friends in a mellow, laid-back atmosphere, where we really aren't doing anything in particular but just talking and laughing. Good times, good times.
