I don't know where to begin....I am addicted to pizza, root beer, cider (the hard stuff, and no I am not alcoholic ), and, of course, Gummi Bears!!! Of course there are a few others that I would like to be addicted to, but they cost way too much!!
This is one of those "where do i start?" kind of polls, like the favorite sandwich one.
I am addicted to soda, but I've been better lately. It's easier in the summer to turn to juices and water, because frankly, soda doesn't quench my thirst or cool me off.
I can't go very long without a good rotation of food. Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Mexican..
I think I'm just addicted to food in general
Definitely coffee. Primo #1 addiction. If I ever tried to give up coffee, they'd have to sedate me for 3 days so I could live through the withdrawal. (Like they do to drug addicts.)
As for solid foods...
This is a good topic right now - with all our stuff in boxes, it's easy to find solace in something sweet or fried. Once we're settled in FL and a routine has established itself, I think eating right will be easier.
Diet Coke. I don't have a blood stream, I have a Diet Coke stream. I get a cut, I don't bleed, I fizz. Every few hours, I get too much blood in my Diet Coke stream and I have to redilute it with fresh elixir.
Leftovers. Cold, straight from the fridge. Doesn't matter leftover WHAT. Could be pizza, roast chicken (especially the bones), mac & cheese, anything in a doggy bag. Once I start, I just can't stop myself Standing in the corner by the sink, digging into the plastic container with my fingers, please, someone help me!!!!!!! (That's why I usually freeze anything that's left; so that it will still be there when I'm ready to make it into something else)
But Kimmie, the whole point of an addiction is that one has no control over oneself. It's the addictive nature of ... whatever you're addicted to, to take control over you, instead of vice versa. (Sorry, my dictionary is not much help on this one.)
If you were ever a cigarette smoker, you'd understand.
Forgot one - and I'd be interested to know if anyone else has this particular problem...
Whenever meetings are catered I can't stop myself. Maybe it comes from "having gone without." (Not exactly a bountiful childhood...) It feels like an involuntary response - if food is there and it's free, I feel I need to load up. To a lesser degree the same holds true for buffets. If it's one price, I feel a desire to leave uncomfortably full or I feel I'm not getting my $$ worth.
I always wanted a custom bumper sticker for my beat-up S-10..."This truck brakes for potato chips."
Pizza, ice cream, chocolate, uh, actually, whatever I happen to be eating at the moment, even down to the mix of Trix and Apple Stroodle cereal I just woofed. This morning it was bialys with pepper jack cheese melted onto them. And now me and No. 1 daughter are off to Dairy Queen.
Dips and dunks....if it's a decent dip I'll dunk until it's gone, veggies, chips, breadsticks, lavosh, ...go figure....Donuts in coffee, another addiction I try hard to just avoid. I also pick at containers of berries...or the crusty cheese on the side of a pan, say what is that called anyway?
I hanker for Thai and Veitnamese noodles.
Kuan, along with duck and duck fat, are duck cracklin's. You know, the crispy skin left over from rendering all the fat. At one of my old jobs, we always pulled them out, hit them with salt and tobasco. I couldn't walk past the prep table they were sitting on without grabbing a handful!!!!
Chips and spicy chunky salsa
Delicious steaming mussels Chicken and rice
Those would definitely have to be my weaknesses... oh what a weak person i am...
About the free food/buffet thing, i dont know about free food. it all really depends on the food. Like free Chips Ahoys or Oreo or maybe hot pizza. Sometimes though, food thats given away for free doesnt look all that appitizing. Like crusty doughnuts.
And im not ususally a big fan of buffets. Some are good, but i've experience some that are gross where cold food left out for hours were the least of their problems.
Cracklin's yummy! The DMO's thought they were the best darn "chicharone" ever! Also, anyone eat the marrow out of roasted veal bones before you set them on the boil? Simple pleasures... mmm. Sometimes the stuff you're not supposed to serve is the best in the world, like the bones carved off a 109, or the edge of a potato gratin. Yum...
