What I'm up against...
This weekend, while separating out two egg whites for my breakfast after making regular eggs for the rest of my family who was visiting:
Sister: "What are you doing?"
MomCat: "I'm separating the eggs so I can just eat the whites."
Mother: "What do you do with the yolks, save them?'
MomCat: "Well, no. I just throw them away. I know it is wasteful,
but I can't figure out what else to do with them."
Mother: "Why don't you just give them to the kids?"
MomCat: "Well, because the yolk is the part that isn't good for you,
especially if you have to watch your cholesterol...which I do.
(blank looks from Mother and Sister)
MomCat: Sooooo, if it isn't good for ME to eat them, why would I give them to the kids?"
Mother (self-assuredly): "Because they taste good."
This from the woman who thought she was helping me with my diet by buying frozen deep-fried, breaded mushrooms. (It's a vegetable, right?) Sigh...family. God love em...
