Law School: My classmates and I are at a buffet and I’ve gone back for seconds, thirds, a hundreths. I overhear one of my classmates say to my boyfriend, “Wow. Your girlfriend eats a LOT.” My boyfriend quietly replies, “I know. It’s VERY expensive.”
Eric Leung: my friend Eric recently posted an article about a 125 lb woman who ate something like 9 lbs of steak in one go and added his comment, ‘My friend Jennifer Yen can do that.’ Too true, too true. I once won a meat eating contest against a bunch of 200+ lb guys. I don’t eat meat anymore though (well, sometimes fish but I am trying to go totally meatless – it’s a work in progress).
The first time my friends Rod and Kelley Portier (amazing cooks) had me over for dinner, I loved their food so much, I ate everything and requested multiple helpings. Later Rod told Kelley, “Next time we invite Jen for dinner, we have to go to Costco first.”
Not trying to encourage gluttony or unhealthiness. Just trying to have some fun and lighten up a little about food. It’s yummy.
