Conceptualizing Foods

I think there are some things in life that are better to not know or at least not see.  I mean we can all conceptualize how a hot-dog becomes a hot-dog but I think we can all agree (whether you eat them or not) you'd rather not witness them being made.  I feel this same way about eggnog.  It is amazing and delicious but I made the mistake of seeing someone make it and I all but swore it off because of that.   Now to be fair it could have been the person and how they made it but the whole thing grossed me out a bit.

So it got me thinking that there are things in life I just enjoy better when they are made for me.  Salads!  I mean I get that I can make the salad for pennies on the dollar but when I buy a salad out it always tastes better than when I make it at home.  Logic reasons that I don't put as much fat or sugar in it at home but all the same: I ate a bowl of green leaf lettuce, two cucumber slices and a tomato wedge at the airport the other day and it was amazing.  Again I understand that a lot of this is psychological but at the same time isn't perception reality what we are preached?  So psychology or not: Salad therefore taste better when someone else makes them for you!  

Live. Love. Loud.
