Strawberry cheesecake, a bowl of cereal and two hot wings.
If Dennis, a CK Products warehouse runner, could have anything to eat today, that would be it. And since it’s officially Eat What You Want Day, he might as well do it.
We so often deprive ourselves of the things we love most because they aren’t good for our hips, thighs or arteries. But May 11 is a day you can throw everything you learned in health class out the window, and eat what you want. Well, according to whoever created this silly “holiday.”
Those of us who work here at CK Products have a wide range of passions when it comes to food. I was curious to find out exactly what some of my co-workers would eat if they could have anything today. See anything on the list that sounds good?
Kendrick – cake made by Shirley (Marketing/Merchandising Manager at CK Products)
Jenny – cupcakes
Shawn – edamame and sushi (specifically a “chicken wing roll” which he has yet to invent!)
Sarah – a nice, big, juicy medium-well-done steak with some loaded mashed potatoes on the side, or a big fat steak chimichanga (She’s all about the steak!)
Star – an ice cream buffet with a brownie for dessert
Lisa – Outback cheese fries (I’m pretty sure she clocked out and left to go get some after I talked to her!)
Jon – wishes they made giant Twinkies, but since they don’t, he’d like some chocolate covered Oreos
Jeff – garlic buttered shrimp
John – pasta and rice balls from Palermo with a bottle of Chianti and a cannoli for dessert
Paul – steak and baked potato
Andrea – crab legs with melted butter
Kelly – prime rib with horseradish sauce
Christie and Michelle – Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich
Natalie – veal marsala from her favorite French restaurant in Niger, Africa
Rick – a gigantic taco salad
Rosie – a thin crust anchovy pizza
Clint – Pizza King royal feast
Robert – a pizza with the works
So, what would you eat if you could have anything in the world today on Eat What You Want Day?
