Lately (today) I have realized the blessing of having a sense of taste.
No, I don't mean a sense of style. I'm not sure if I can really say I've been blessed with that.
I'm actually talking about one of the 5 senses (I believe there's 5, unless you can see dead people).
Today I am sick. I have a horrible cold. It's ridiculous because I rarely get sick.
I made some spicy szechuan eggplant stir-fry stuff for dinner and I can't even taste it!
I took so much time marinating the meet and picking out certain spices and sauces and I can't even taste the stuff!
Well... I guess I tasted a little. It was only a small hint of flavor, which instead was kind of a tease because I couldn't even get the full effect.
It's tragic, really.
This experience has made me realize how blessed I am (on normal days) to be able to taste food. Although there have been some experiences where I wished I could turn it off temporarily, I really am grateful for the ability to taste things.
I mean... there is some REALLY amazing food out there. Am I right or am I right?
Speaking of food. Check out this awesomeness we made the other night.
(Please excuse the photography. I used my cellphone camera b/c my camera battery is dead. It was actually better than it looks. Maybe I shouldn't have taken a picture? Oh well.. )
Good. Fun. Cheap. Date night.
