Pizza. Hot dogs. Wine. Bagels. Beef ragout. Really. Have you ever noticed people don't eat salad and veggies in stories? They have milkshakes and Coke and beer and doughnuts.
No one says, "Hey, guys! How about we all go out for steamed veggies with fish?" Noooo. They go out for pizza or burgers and beer.
Here's the thing. While I'm reading the story I get the urge for munchies. Potato chips. Candy bars. Chocolate chip cookies. And I don't keep those things in my house.
No soda. No chips. No snacks. Nothing! Somehow cottage cheese and pineapple doesn't satisfy the cravings the same way chips and dips does.
And don't get me started on the Tex-Mex food! Nachos, guacamole, and gooey cheese... Matter of fact, after a while even a soy dog sounds good. And I'm allergic to soy.
