Lessons learned watching a skinny man.

We had chili for dinner this week.

Here is how Jonathan and I proceed when eating chili:

Jonathan fixes a bowl of chili.  Then he eats it.  This picture represents his bowl:

I fix a bowl of chili.  Then I top it with sour cream.  Sharp cheddar cheese.  Green onions.  And oyster crackers. Then I eat it.  This picture represents my bowl of chili:


Obviously, mine is the more robust and interesting bowl of chili.
Also......mine is the more robust waistline. 

I'm sure there is a lesson there somewhere.  I need a while to think about it.  I will need to think about it and come to no conclusions until after then next time we eat chili.  I'm afraid the lesson might involve giving up sharp cheddar cheese or sour cream, and that makes me unreasonably sad.

Whatever, Jonathan's chili is boring and bland. hehe :) I refuse to eat chili without cheese. You shouldn't give up your toppings Starr. Your waistline is always amazing.

Somebody has a bad memory. I always top my chili, but it's just a topping; not an excuse to eat cheese and sour cream!

Hello compromise: light sour cream (or even the fat-free isn't THAT bad) and reduced fat cheese. Once you mix it all up, it tastes the same, I think! (Unfortunately, MY waistline doesn't quite justify my giving out any dieting tips, but whatever...)
