Question Eating with your Nose :(

I`m fairly sure this fits under the Techniques catagory.

I`m equaly sure I`m not the only one that`s done this either, you stand a long time preparing a cooking a meal, smelling it all the time, and when it comes time to serve up, you can hardly eat any, you`re already Full Up!

it`s not so bad if it`s a stew or a soup or something that`s for the next day, but what about the other times?

any Hints/Tips ?

I've had that happen when preparing a big meal for company. By the time it's cooked, I've smelled and tasted till I'm tired of it. Now, the next day, I'm all over those leftovers.

Now, be honest, have you been tasting along with the smelling? ;o)
No, IF I haven't been tasting (as I often do all T'giving morning because it smells SSSSOOOOO good), I am ready to eat it.

if I taste it, it`s a fraction of a T spoon, and total wouldn`t fill a mouse.

it`s not that, Honestly, even if someone else is Cooking it happens, it`s like I`ve already eaten a good half of it already.

for example (the thing that made me post this in the 1`st place); I have Jerky doing in the oven downstairs, I`ve obviously not tried any yet, but if it was done NOW, I wouldn`t eat any, it would have to be something entirely different and then I could eat it.

Please don`t say I`m the ONLY "Strange" one on here :P

I have to confess to that particular strangeness as well.

Often, when I have been cooking for an extended period, I am not hungry at all when dinner is served. This is true even if I have missed lunch or eaten less than usual because I was busy cooking.

So, YT, you are not alone in this 'strangeness', you share it with me.

Fear not, from where I sit, you are pretty strange in a numberr of ways that are unique.

I do not want to hijack your thread but since you are on to something here, let me mention it.

My son loves to cook too, but he is not active on this site. About two years ago he had a bad cold. He took Zicam to shorten his symptoms, just as advertised. He took another dose, then another. (no warings on the package)

Over time his cold got better, but a curious side effect of the Zicam was loss of his olfactory accuity. He lost his sense of smell!

He looked into the issue on the web. He was/is not the first. There are class action suits under way. He feared his loss was permanent. Over time it has returned, slowly, and gradually, but still he cannot taste certain things... cocoa cola for instance is totally lost to him.

Fortunately he does not drink cokes that often... but it was a long two years.

FYI. take no more than one dose of this stuff.

I barely taste as I go along but smelling it all day long really makes me tired of it.

It's really bad at the holidays when I'm cooking for several days. I just don't want to eat the dinner for a day or 2 but I make a small plate since I've been called on it many times.
