If you could eat any food/meal and it have no effect on your health, what would it be.

For me it would be the Big Mac and Fries. I would eat this 3 times per week if I could. However, its so bad for you I never eat it more than 2-3 times a year.

My other choice woul dbe a rack of baby back ribs, mac and cheese, cole slaw and corn bread.

    1. re: Maximilien

      Expertly done with minimum grease, New England style fried scallops and fried whole belly clams with a tartar sauce that is 80% pickles, 20% mayonnaise

      High quality French fries. Hot, crisp and slightly brown. Along with a grass-fed green chili cheese burger. Along with a lamb burger. Along with Schweppes ginger ale to which I can add vodka as I please. Cucumber or lettuce salad on the side with lots of the best ripe tomatoes. With bacon bits and a malt vinegar dressing. I just might eat the salad first to make sure this is a healthy meal.

    2. Slabs of prime rib, lobster / butter, red wine....lots and lots of it.

        +1.....and throw in some creamed spinach and a Porterhouse or two...

          ++1 But I'd have to have pasta too. Any kind of pasta.

          1. re: boyzoma

            Mutch2do,phreddy, and boyzoma, is there room for me at your table?

            1. re: EWSflash

              There's always room for more. Come on over :)

      2. I would have a nice healthy rotation of cheeseburgers, chicken fried steak, barbecue, lasagna, beef stroganoff, chili dogs, eclairs, fried eggs and sausage, coconut cream pie, and every form of potato, with occasional bowl of steel cut oats for palate relief, all washed down with bourbon or martinis and followed with coffee. That's pretty much my plan. Thanks so much for letting me know I will suffer no ill effects.

        1. re: tim irvine

          When I started this thread I didnt even think of booze. I would drink bourbon like water. Once the kids went to bed of course.

          1. re: tim irvine

            Tim has the right idea -- I also would choose steel-cut oats for the palate relief, but would substitute goulash for the stroganoff, bacon for the sausage, vary the desserts and skip the booze. Otherwise, that's about perfect. However, if I could only select one thing, it might have to be Eggs Benedict. But wait, there's the cheese......

          2. Basically every potato product ever invented - French fries, potato chips, potato skins, hash browns, tater tots, mashed potatoes, potatoes au gratin - you get the idea.

              Oh, and if I can have them with some kind of dairy - butter, cream, cheese, sour cream, aioli, ranch dressing, etc. - so much the better.

              1. re: aching

                ooh, when this mythical time finally arrives, i'm coming over to your place.

                and i'll add booze. bubbly, wine, cocktails, you name it.

                    1. re: dianne0712

                      Plus 1 as well!

                      And I'll bring wine or champagne. Potatoes and wine - extra fine!

                      1. re: happybaker

                        Sounds like we need to plan a potato party, ASAP.

                  1. re: aching

                    I'd like to get in on this too. Lobster/butter and cold white wine are a close second, however.

                    1. re: tcamp

                      yep, first course, second course, far as i'm concerned....

                  2. re: aching

                    Me too. Every bastardized potato concoction invented. I would also add onion rings, jalapeno poppers, nacho's and basically ANY "bar food" ever invented.

                    1. re: sedimental

                      Nachos are bad for you?!? What?!?

                    2. re: aching

                      Yes! Count me in, potato in any form!

                    3. Nutella, croissants, ramen noodles, lobster with butter and a chocolate milk shake... ideally all in one sitting.
