Yum!

With a Fresh Market in easy strolling distance, it's a wonder I don't weigh three hundred pounds.

I just had a pleasant little morning nosh of freshly-sliced pepperoni and hard salami, slices of Emmentaler and aged Gouda, and some little flatbread crackers. Yum!

I've gotten to the point where I keep cold cuts, olives, and cheeses in the fridge the way most people keep candy or cookies. I don't know that too much cholesterol is any better for you than too much sugar, but I'm working hard to find out.

Perhaps the walk to the market counters the cholesterol?
Good health to you and yours.

I think it's the "easy strolling distance" part that saves you.

I just love great markets. When we visit the in-laws near Toronto we always hit the big market and lunch is pretty much exactly what you just described along with a nice piece of crusty bread and a beer.

Hey, that's good, healthy food! Kept people living and working for many years, so enjoy it!

Damn, that sounds good...

Keep on and enjoy it Tam; moderation is for monks.

When we have to paint a stripe on you so we can tell whether you're walking or rolling, THEN you can pull back a little.

Everyone should keep the components of antipasto in their house.

I wouldnt' sweat the cholestrol or the sugar. You'll probably be shot in the back by a jealous ex-girlfriend, or power slide into a concrete bridge abutment in the rain. Ordinary people die in ordinary ways.

I fully expect to be shot crawling out the window of a bedroom not my own, and the pity of it will be because I will be fixing the storm window.

Actually, it's not the cholesterol you need to worry about, but the nitrites in highly processed meats. Still, life without bacon is not worth living, so at least you know what's killing you.

Cowboy Blob,

If your pepperoni, salami, and bacon are highly processed and full of nitrites, you need to find a better source. :)

You are one of those blessed people who eat to live, not like some who live to eat.

Enjoy!
