      1. re: twyst

        now that IS a very interesting choice of menu considering the models usually eat air. :)

        1. re: HillJ

          More for twyst! After all, they're there for the COMPANY, not for dining companionship!

        2. re: twyst

          I'll take a grilled cheese sandwich in the company of Victoria's secret models!

          1. re: ctfoodguy

            As long as we're eating in the company of Victoria's Secret models, I'll take a can of spray whipped cream and chocolate sauce, please....

        3. Just to be clear...did this food fairy previously reside in Judgement City ("Defending Your Life")? If so, and I can eat as much as I want and never feel full or gain weight, I'd like the *entire* tuna casserole, please. Nothing more than a pepper grinder and a fork needed as accompaniements. And, we're talking old school TC...Kraft Mac & Cheese, canned tuna, canned peas and a gelatinous glop of Cream of Mushroom soup.

          I know I may get my 'hound privileges revoked, but that's my wish. Maybe throw in a nice bottle of French Chablis and some guilty pleasure on the tube. Ahhhh, heaven.

            1. re: mizzdee

              and it's YOUR wish Christina D - more power to ya!

              1. re: mizzdee

                <all things yummy and magical> Love this, and love the much-maligned classic Tuna noodle casserole. With frozen peas, thank you kindly.

                1. re: mamachef

                  I add frozen peas as an upgrade. :o)

            2. I want to have one more Christmas with my family again. I want all of my aunts and uncles and my grandparents and Ma and Daddy to be there. We would have rye bread, kielbasa, antipasto, chicken wings, a fruit and cheese tray and all the hodge podge of stuff we used to have when I was a kid.

                That's beautiful pinehurst. Hodge podge is my fav food group.

                1. re: pinehurst

                  That's great, piney. What I wouldn't give for just one more homemade fried chicken dinner made by my grandma, with grandpa, mom and dad, my aunts, uncles and cousins all crowded into the dining room.

                  1. re: pinehurst

                    Well jeez, didnt this post make me feel like a terrible human being for choosing the victoria's secret models :p

                    1. re: twyst

                      Why? I'm sure they're fascinating.... conversationalists.

                      1. re: twyst

                        plus, they'll be someone's grandmother someday too...

                      2. re: pinehurst

                        Wow, Pinehurst, that's an awesome sentiment, I'd be Christmas Eve and the menu would be my Grandmom's 7 fishes, Aunt Carmella's cannoli's, figs, nuts in the shell, grandpop peeling the orange in one long strip w/ his pocket knife, off to mass and then grandpop's home made sausages and pasta at midnight and then some Italian Rum cake
                        lots of home made red wine (i'm an adult now, right I can have more than a juice glass) and espresso w/ a side of limoncello or Strega at the very end

                      3. If I had unending gustatory capacity and could get this all down in one meal:
                        Grandma Mimi's Matzo ball soup
                        Grandma Mimi's blintzes, strawberry jam
                        Grandma Mimi's Brisket. OMG.
                        Grandma Ida's Heavenly Hash Chocolate Candy. Nope, she was no renegade. She used "hash" in the old-fashioned sense; a mixture. It was like rocky road and was magnificent and I can't find a recipe.
                        Chicken Toscana, made by Chuck Hunsaker, side of plain penne with hand-grated parmesan
                        Pastrami sandwich/glass beer from Mac's.
                        CFS and gravy, by Norm Carver
                        Peanut butter cookies by me
                        Ma Po Tofu, from the Bowl
                        My dad's ribs
                        Lori's oven-baked parmesan potato wedges
                        Who with? Everyone I've ever loved who's not "of the world" anymore. And Hunter Thompson, and Eleanor Roosevelt. And Gilda Radner.
