DP Daily Prompts: Nosey Delights

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

From the yeasty warmth of freshly baked bread to the clean, summery haze of lavender flowers, we all have favorite smells we find particularly comforting, What’s yours?

This month my favorite smell which is particularly comforting is food, any kind, spicy,non spicy, sweet, sour you name it, I like it.

When I wake up in the morning I’m disheartened when I see the clock tells me it’s eight in the morning, I sit on my comfortable couch and begin counting how many more hours I’d have to wait to smell and eventually eat the food. Would you believe it’s another twelve hours before I get to smell and eat.

While I wait I turn on the TV and watch the food network, there is a show called chopped and another one is ‘Cut throat Kitchen’, this one is amazing how the chefs do everything to get ahead of the next person. It’s helpful to me, my time passes quickly.

Yesterday the sun set at 8.53 pm which meant it was time for me to eat. After fasting so long the craving for food suddenly disappeared.

  1. I wonder if food provides the same comfort during other times of the year when fasting is not part of the usual routine?

    I followed a fast day on Tuesday, for the 17th of the Hebrew month of Tammuz.

    • Good for you Noah, I don’t know, ordinarily you can eat whatever you want and whenever there is no restriction,
      fasting month there are specific times you can eat, early morning not so good,I’d rather sleep, but daytime is
      completely different, the fact you can smell the food but wait till after sunset to eat is challenging.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. It is amazing how memories can be embedded in the warmth of smells.

    I can remember the smells of a lonely forest floor which immediately and vividly bring me back to the boy-robert who wandered through thick forests with a child’s eyes. I miss those eyes.

    All good wishes,

    robert
