2020-06-23 - Biscuits
During the pandemic, Richard and I have followed "best practices" and have been thankful to escape the virus, thus far. For the most part, we have done absolutely fine. But we have been reminded of something interesting about human nature! Before we ever heard of Covid-19, we had not eaten refrigerated biscuits in over two years, since my Dad passed away. They were a favorite of his, so we used to bake them when he came to visit. We could have bought them at any time we were at Publix ©, but we just didn't think about it for two years.
Then, along came the pandemic, in which we were not able to go into the grocery store for two months (and are still going at that interval, per our doctor's advice related to our medical issues), and only able to buy non-perishables. We had not felt deprived and still do not; all along, we have been very thankful for what we do have - plenty of vegetables, bread that lasted almost two months since we would only unfreeze as needed etc. But human nature being what it is, after we saw those rolls on television, we naturally started craving them! Every time that we saw them on a commercial (and our shows seemed to air them frequently), our mouths would water at the thought of eating one of those fluffy, flaky biscuits. As you would expect, as soon as we were able to make a brief outing to the grocery store, we bought two cans, which finally satiated us for four meals!
Aren't we like that often? We want what we can NOT have, just because we are unable to have it (and in this case, because they really ARE delicious LOL)! We need to keep our focus on what we DO have and CAN enjoy!
