I have realised I am a secret eater (even unknown to myself!). I do a lot of the cooking at home and when I was making the dinner on Thursday evening, I froze in mid air - a couple of pieces of grated parmesan inches from my mouth. I must do this without even realising! When I thought about it, I 'taste' pretty much everything before it goes in the food (unless it's raw meat/fish of course!) - I must eat part of a meal before sitting down and eating the final version!
Now I know, I am going to be uber strict with myself (those German classes at school have come in handy!) and only taste to final product for seasoning.
Thought I'd share this to make anyone else aware of what they may be doing!
