Muscle Cars Shrunk And Swapped At Orchard Beach


April 05, 1991|By Peg Adamarczyk

In spring, a young man's thoughts turn to love. Yeah, yeah.

For those of us in the thirty-something crowd, this glorious season gives rise to frightful thoughts of things to come. Cellulite dimpled thighs hanging out of swimsuits. Bellies draped over belts. What a wonderful sight!

All of these warm and wonderful thoughts come to mind while composing this week's column. Every item seems to have food mentioned. Maybe the hunger pangs are getting to me since I've re-joined the calorie-cutting crowd for the umpteenth time.

Visions of food are invading my dreams. I see and smell plates of steamed shrimp, crab cakes, spaghetti with meat balls, French toast, sausage, barbecue pork and ranch fries, all cooked by an unseen hand, placed on a table just waiting for little old me.

Old? Well, that's debatable. Little? Nobody would believe.
