Five Food Groups

Because it’s’ a Tuesday night, and it’s already been a hella long week…

…and because I just had a yummy dinner to celebrate my brother Dale’s birthday…

…and because I’m going to go to sleep before 10 pm tonight (I mean it this time)…

…and because I can’t be bothered to hang up the clean shirts, so I just laid them all out flat to ‘save hangers’…

…and because I’m enjoying this exercise in non-sequential, illogical parts of sentences…

…here are my five favorite food groups:

  1. Butter
  2. Garlic
  3. Steak
  4. Dessert
  5. Coffee

Yes, I’m aware that fruits, veggies, and whole grains also should have spots  on the list, but frankly, I’d rather eat a big steak with garlic butter, followed by dessert and coffee, than a vegetarian meal followed by fruit for dessert any day. (Mom, I’m totally kidding…I eat all my servings of veggies daily. No, really!)

Seriously though, half of the things that come out of my kitchen contain one or more of the aforementioned food groups.

And while we’re talking about sets of five…here are my five favorite old-school country songs.

  1. Dolly Parton, Jolene
  2. Johnny Cash, Long Black Veil
  3. Loretta Lynn, Hey Loretta
  4. Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash, If I Were A Carpenter
  5. Chris LeDoux, Life is a Highway

Just thought you ought to know. Goodnight!
