What do you have the most fun eating/drinking as a matter of process?

I'm sure posts like this have done before...they all have.

But I was thinking about how much I love eating peanuts in the shell—cracking them between my fingers & shaking out the contents. I love peanuts in any form, but I buy them in the shell rather than shelled just for the experience. Same goes with pistachios.

  1. Artichokes. Edamame. And chirashi - I like pretending I have my own buffet.

    1. I used to LOVE the process of eating a pomegranate, but as I grew older I grew tired of the whole thing!

      Now, I really love the ritual of sushi..

      1. ok don't think I'm weird but I love a smoothie with a straw then I put my finger on top of the straw allowing some smoothie to be forced into the straw then I keep my finger on top and drizzle the smoothie into my mouth. Capillary action at it's best!

        1. Lobster. Claws first, then tail, body and finally suck the meat out of the legs.
          Assembling stacked enchiladas. Fry tortilla, dip in chile, ladle chile, cover w/ a handful of cheese, then onion. Repeat and the grand finale, the coup de grace, the fried egg sizzling in the too hot grease. Yum.

            MMMM... A fried egg on top. That made my mouth water.

            I like to roll the meat out of lobster legs with a rolling pin.

              I eat my lobster the opposite way! Legs, body, claws then tail. Maryland crabs is a similar experience. I enjoy it all except the "mustard". When I younger I didn't like the taste of crab but would still help people pick them.

            2. A frosty chilada and a crispy delgado chicharron "hat", and I'm a happy campista.
