Pangs of Hunger -- and Bit of Guilt

McGovern said yesterday that he had not given a lot of thought to what he will eat today as he returns to his more typical diet. "I want a cup of coffee -- or five," he said. "Just probably something that doesn't require a lot of preparation. And not lentils. I've had enough lentils for three years."

mmm, lentils.

I eat like a poor person, except for vegetables.

Wow- my refridgerator's bare and I spend significantly more than that. I hope they double the food stamp allowance.

And I found myself thinking "gosh, I could go for some lentils right now...."

Perhaps he just wasn't preparing his lentils in a tasty manner. Because lentils are gooooooood.

Preparing things in a tasty manner can be kind of challenging when you don't have access to good quality ingredients is the point, I believe. No one's defaming lentils, but when it's all a person has they'd be a mite tiresome.

Sayin'.

True, I forget that I'm spoiled. The recipes I make are cheap to me but I forget that it's all relative...

What a nobel experiment!
I'm glad there are politicians trying this.
It makes me think there really are a few left with their hearts in the right places!

IMHO, it should be mandatory for all elected officials, in the first half of their term.

I still like the line
"eating lentils with no utensils"

This story kills me. Over and over. Livin' like the people? Riiiiight.

Lentils top it off well, instead of the more expensive maraschino cherry.
