to mourn the food that i will never eat

since i am allergic to milk, there are certain things that i cant eat.  i have only recently cut milk out of my diet, and i am now realizing that there are some things that i will never get the chance to enjoy.  but i think i’m alright with that.

1. chocolate milk- i never understood this phenomenon.  it seems like everyone liked chocolate milk when they were kids, and to this day my brother drinks about four glasses each day.  i never had the desire to drink it.  it seemed too strange, and i was confused if it was a drink or a dessert. or a drink-dessert, like chocolate liquor, not that i’ve had that either.  i dont drink.

2. creme brûlée- to be honest, i have a very vague picture of what this delicacy actually is.   i have never seen anyone eat it before; the most i know about it is that it was sung about in high school music in the wonderfully terrible song “stick to the status quo.”  so i suppose im not going to spend too much time crying over my  not eaten creme brûlée, since i really have no clue what it is.

3.cappuchino-the lovely little italian drink.  enough said.

4. ranch dressing- i’ll never be one of those kids who are eating their vegetables dipped in ranch in those hidden valley commercials.

5.eggnog- i have mixed feelings about this drink.  considering i hate eggs, im not too sad about this one.  but eggnog just seems so festive, and im sad that ill never raise a glass of this strange concoction, although i’ve never seen anyone actually drink eggnog.

6. cheese curds- i remember when i went to the wisconsin dells with my family when i was younger.  all my mom wanted was cheese curds.  even though they looked like little wet turds, my mother longed for them and devoured the little goobers.  i regret making fun of her for eating them.  i wish that i could have joined in on her curd eating party.

7.an omelet with cheese- as previously stated, i hate eggs.  i still would like to have the option of having an omelet with cheese if i ever get over my egg-phobia.  it’s just such a classic breakfast item, and i wish i had the chance to eat it.

8. chocolate chip cookies made my thomas keller- i have a fantasy that one day i will meet the legendary chef thomas keller, and he will make me a batch of chocolate chip cookies.  the cookies will be the ones from his cookbook ad hoc.  they will be delicious cookies.  i will eat all the cookies while discussing with thomas keller what i will help him make that night for dinner at his restaurant , ad hoc.  then we will go eat the dinner and discuss how i have a blog named ad hoc, and thomas keller and i will be best friends.  this is obviously never going to happen, but hey, i have to dream.
