I know. When I make something really good, it's usually just Ok to me, though others may rave about it. But when someone else makes the same dish, even if it's exactly the same as when I made it, somehow it tastes a whole bunch better. How does that work?

It appears that, at least in part, hunger and satiety is all in our minds.
I beg to differ - somehow it's found it's way to MY hips! I don't eat that much - but I couldn't prove it to you!

When I cook for days for Thanksgiving and everyone is sitting down I could just ralph at the thoughts of eating. It's usually hours later or even the next morning.

I, too, have often found myself not very hungry by the time I get a big meal on the table. But then, I've usually consumed a large portion of it through tasting/smelling. Aroma is a large portion of appetite. My sniffer has been "off" for a few months, and I have to have hubby do a tasting or two before I can serve a meal.

Most people I cook for think that I just love the cooking bit and not the eating part of it, and they are wrong. I should show them this thread I have tried to explain to lots of people that it's the smell that makes me not feel like eating much after cooking. Usually I would prefer to eat a wee bit later after cooking a meal that takes time,but by then everyone wants the meal asap. Can't win!

We have two restaurants around the corner. One is a family style restaurant and the other is a sandwich shop. Some days the smell of onions cooking is so over powering it makes you sick at your stomach. I thought it was the sandwich shop but a neighbor said it was the family style restaurant where she worked. I really don't know what to believe because the smell starts really early in the morning and the sandwich shop doesn't open until later. (I don't know if she really worked there or not.) I just wish there was an air filter for this. We have an enormous park in the center of town. On one side you get fried chicken smell, another roast beef, next Mexican, and last is the pizza side. There is no wonder the squirrels won't eat popcorn!

I know the feeling StirBlue. I used to live near quite a famous restaurant in Barcelona. All the tourists would come and look at the chickens roasting on the spit in front of the wood fire. I used to curse that place, as did all the other neighbours. They paid no attention to local bylaws and never did anything to control their fumes. I'd regularly wake up with soot on my pillow from their chimney. Fortunately, the wind only rarely blew it all in our direction, but for other neighbours, the smoke and smell was intolerable.

If I'm cookong just for family everything'ss fine.
When we have people here for dinner, by the time we all sit down and they are (hopefully) enjoying the meal, it tastes like sawdust in my mouth.!
