Cookbooks, Food TV and lemon tea

I cannot tell you how long it has been since I have EATEN! Not just bites here and there, but an actual entree or meal. If I think about food too intensely, that will even make me sick. Ick. Lemon tea is always by my side.
But how funny that cookbook reading and food tv watching has become my new obsessions. You all are very well aware that I am not a foodie in the eating sense, but as far as an interest is concerned, you can't find a subject more interesting or passionate than food prep. I'm enthralled. Even the cooks that I had no desire to watch before are on my food watching schedule.
Nigella has always been my fave though. I just finished her Nigella Express book and I give it 5 stars. It took me a week but I read it cover to cover. If you get lost in cookbooks, this one will be a winner for you.

The biggest thing I miss about not having tv anymore is food network. R used to laugh at how much I watched it since it didn't always translate into meals for him. :) More and more I can see the "therapeutic" effects of food prep; chopping/dicing/etc. I always thought that was sort of hokey, but I so get it now.

I hope you'll eat more soon...but I understand that aversion to food. (Ok, who am I kidding...my food aversion lasted, um, 20 minutes)

I totally get it. When I was pregnant, I used to dream about eating big plates of delicious things. It was like an obsession because I could eat so little.

Did you have m/s like this with Ivy? I am sending big hugs
