EATING FOOD WHILE IT'S HOT
"I sometimes can get to a clean plate when the food is cold but it takes a lot of discipline . It often gets left out there cold and unfinished . No one gets prizes for food unfinished . Not even participation trophies ."
It’s always best when it’s hot . The flavors are at their most flavorful , the smells fill entire rooms , and all I can think about is taking the first bite . That’s when the food is at it’s truest form and meant to be experienced . I am most likely to finish all of my food when it’s hot . The plate always gets cleaned . That’s when the food is at it's best . Hot .
When it’s warm , I can still eat it , it still tastes pretty good . All the original flavors are still kind of there and I still remember my first bites while it was hot . I might get distracted a little but I always come back to my food and it will get finished .
When the food gets cold it’s tough . It just doesn’t have the flavor and enticing quality it once had . It doesn’t make me salivate . When I’m away , cold food doesn’t make me think about it and make me wanna rush home to finish it . I sometimes can get to a clean plate when the food is cold but it takes a lot of discipline . It often gets left out there cold and unfinished . No one gets prizes for food unfinished . Not even participation trophies .
Reheating food . I can do that . I mean , it’s definitely not as great as it was when it was originally hot . but it’s technically hot again , I can get through it . I sometimes can get to the end and get to my clean plate when I try to reheat food .
When food is cold , eating feels more like work than pleasure . That’s why I have to try to finish my food while it’s hot no matter where I am or what I’m doing . Or at least take my first couple bites out of it so that when I have to reheat it later , I can imagine what it tasted like when I first bit into it while it was hot . To try to recreate that experience .
This is also why I try not to eat too many different dishes at once . Maybe 2 or 3 MAX and that’s even stretching it thin because you have to switch between the dishes before any one of them gets cold . Its tough to juggle . Maybe with fast-food you can juggle easier , but if you’re out at a nice restaurant with quality food ? Food that puts fire into your heart ? I highly recommend eating one hot dish at a time .
This is really just a reminder to myself to focus on one hot meal so that I can really develop that one hot meal and produce one exceptional and extremely clean plate . A plate that will let the audience know how the food made me feel when it was hot and fresh and moved me to eat it .

*** This outfit was thought of while I was on a trip to Chicago . I came home to shoot it the next day to try to recreate the feeling I had when I first tried it on in the store and imagined a version of myself that would wear this jacket .
