So I'm in NC hanging out with my dad while my mom is visiting her sister in the DC area. Since we're baching it and I don't really cook, we're eating out once a day and mooching off my brother and sister at their homes.
A year ago, my dad had an emergency, almost life-ending surgery and then spent a month in intensive care. He's doing well, but his goal for the last year has been to build his weight back up. That means lots of snacking, and co-snacking by the rest of the family to encourage him to snack!
And that's where the moon pies come in. After returning from a lasagna dinner at my sister's, we sat down to watch Carolina play in the Final Four. After a few commercials, off he went to the kitchen and then I heard the dreaded question ... "want a moon pie? they are really good."
Well, I really didn't want a moon pie, but there is that co-snacking thing, so I said yes. (Luckily I live in Michigan, so my co-snacking is occasional.)
Now Cheetos are another story -- I am always happy to eat Cheetos, and that is one snack food that is always in my parents' house, 100% of the time. So yes, I've now had Cheetos (small portions, at least) for four days in a row. Only two more days to go before I go back to the no-Cheeto zone that is Michigan!
