SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"One of the greatest joys of being an SSBBW is the knowledge we gain from being our size...If someone is your friend, and accepts you as you are and doesn't try to change you, then you know the soul of that person, and you know that they are quality individuals." ~ Ceci [SSBBW]

It's been said that everybody plays the fool ... sometimes. The same can be said for food. Maybe it is one food disguised as another. Or perhaps it is a fool in the name of the food. Or just foolish and Major. What ever it is food and fool are only a few letters away from each other. Some tips for being foolish with your food.

1) Don't be afraid to experiment in the kitchen. If you're nervous about wasting food, start with a couple of tried and true recipes. Once you feel confident in your skills with Sam, substitute one spice for another or add something extra to the recipe.if you are still nervous, check the internet for some ideas on substitutions.

2) Think like a kid! Dessert before dinner? Appetizers for lunch? Peanut butter and honey instead of the usual PB&J. Thinking like a kid just means shaking it up a little bit from your usual routine. Taco Tuesday is practically a national holiday, so move away from the crowd and do something different. Have you fallen into the same rut with sandwiches for every lunch? Try websites like BuzzFeed or Pinterest for new ideas on what to take to work for your midday meal.

3) Why not try a "fool" literally? This months recipe includes one for a fruit fool. Yummy dessert that goes far back in English history. Or you can try Elvis's famous Fools Gold Sandwich. Maybe you want to stick with the tried-and-true ... April Fool's Day tricks! Cupcakes that are actually meatloaf and mashed potatoes or poundcake sliced and served with jam to look like french fries and ketchup. You can cheat and look at last year's article, or do a simple Internet search for "tricky recipes".

4) Stretch your imagination! While not strictly a "fool", the Eygyptian dish "ful" is sometimes written as "foul" but pronounced like "fool". It is on the list of foolish foods although it's a stretch!

There are lots of ways that food and fool go together, so this April find your inner fun prankster and get foolish with your food.
