for your cold rainy day: http://www.dinnerina...m/dirty-hot-dog

my craptacular food indiscretions-

- fake crab meat. I swear- I'm not allowed to buy it anymore cause it will disappear in the first hour! And eating fake crab out of one's grocery bag on the bus feels sooo dirty. :blink:

- cheapo day-glo maraschino cherries

- gardenburger's fake ribletes.

I wonder if surimi has the same stigma in Japan that it seems to have here. Already, calling it surimimaki sounds so much more high end than imitation krab roll.

I love those too. Ya know they bleach them first and then artificially color them...knowing that still doesn't make me stop eating them, though. ;o)

So good, and so bad for you:

Frozen pot pies
Mac and cheese from a box
Diet coke
Starbucks mint frappucino and pumpkin spice latte
KFC (though I haven't had it since I had that eye-opening conversation with Sylvan over the summer)

When I am gambling in Vegas, I drink enless Jack & Diets.

Frozen pot pies


Oh, hell yes! And none of those fancy Marie Callendar's ones either...the more generic and the least representative of actual food, the better!

Along the same lines:
Salisbury Steak frozen dinners. That salty brown goop they claim is gravy just gets me :blink:

Kinda along the same lines, here's another discussion we had a while back about odd combos.
http://portlandfood....wtopic=6793&hl=

Whiz in a can is a must every now and again. Have to think on this one. I'm sure I've got tons of others.

Oh, wait...spam counts here, doesn't it? Fried all crispy. Mmmm. And canned deviled ham. Two pieces of toast with deviled ham on one side and cream cheese on the other all smooshed together.

Wow. That's a good one.

##################
  • When I was a kid, :rolleyes: I would eat Lucky Charms for breakfast. Dry. No milk. And I would separate all the crunchy marshmallows out, eat all the oaty bites while watching cartoons, and mash the handful of mallows together in a big ball and eat it all at once.
  • I have done a similar thing at a movie theater whilst eating peanut butter m&ms.
  • i will swig directly from the maple syrup bottle when no one is looking.
  • I tease/challenge/goad the staff at thai restaurants, hoping they will actually put the real hot chilis in my dish. I like it when they give the the ".....ok, you asked for it" look.
  • In college, while I was doing a lot of work on the wheel for ceramics, I would get the 64oz Mega Jug of Coke at the Shell Station and an extra long straw. I think I filled up three times one day. I loved that jug.
  • Pretzel sticks and mass amounts of sour cream.
  • Toaster waffle, butter pecan ice cream, and maple syrup sandwiches.
  • I can probably eat an entire pound of cheese curds in under a minute.
  • .....
I will be adding more to this later, most assuredly.

Potato chip, mustard & salt sandwiches.

Peanut butter, salt & sriracha sauce on toast w/a litre can of Asahi . It does not owrk unless a full litre can of beer is consumed with.

I do the same thing but put a piece of cheese in before rolling into a ball... then I roll in in hot mustard and in the crumbly dregs from a tortilla chip bag. :rolleyes:

lunch meat wrapped around pickles

tofu (just kidding)

cantalope filled with chocolate ice cream

Popeye's Fried Chicken (about once every 3 months)

McDonald's Dbl. Quarter Pounder with Cheese (about once a year)

It's only a "guilty" pleasure when SS accidentally tells your GF that you guys closed the place down several nights in a row when you claimed to be elsewhere :rolleyes:

Yes, but has to be that awful Carl Budding pressed meat crap. It's even better with Cheez Whiz spread on the 'meat' first, then wrapped around the pickle.
