dinosaur sandwiches and chocolate cake for breakfast
First I thought this week was going to be cookie week.
but I’m not so sure now. This week is really about i-love-you food: food we accept or offer to others to communicate something. It’s like getting a bouquet of flowers or a giant teddy bear, but somebody made it with thier own hands. Kind of like comfort food. But not quite.
Everyone has thier own i-love-you food. Admittedly, for a lot of us it’s cookies. It’s a pretty good default, not gonna lie. Because an I-love-you food has to be universally delicious, relatively simple (usually someone needs it and needs it quick) and it has to have a bit of a twist to it…something to make it special.
Three Ways To Let Food Say I Love You
1. serve it for breakfast.
make cake for breakfast.
serve breakfast in bed.
or have breakfast for dinner.
2. add chocolate
the no-brainer. But you can get creative with this, too.
Add chocolate chips to pancakes.
Add them to pie.
Make hot chocolate and serve it in a big red mug.
3. (and this is the foolproof one) SHAPE IT LIKE A DINOSAUR
Marena’s I-love-you-food is grilled cheese sandwiches and macaroni and cheese.
Mine is blueberry pancakes and blueberry tea.
What is your I-love-you food?
