Food Confessions part deux (or is it trios?)

I thought I’d start a fresh thread, confession is good for the soul, right?

Absolve me of my sin, and please do not pull my Chow card for this.

I had a weak moment at the grocery store and bought a can of “spray cheese” and a box of Ritz Crackers

My 13 year old daughter proclaimed “I am proud to say that have never tasted cheese from a can, and I don’t think that today will be the day I break that streak”

As a kid, spay cheese was a party staple… I don’t think I’ve had it since I was younger than my daughter is now… I’ve become much too “evolved” right? WRONG, the salty, gooey “cheeze” flavor brought back memories!

I really enjoyed it… my daughter watched, shook her head and left the kitchen

So… don’t leave me hanging out here like this… what absolutely terrible food have you succumbed to lately?

  1. We had toaster waffles for breakfast this morning. My kids ate them straight out of the freezer, un-toasted. I feel no guilt.

      My 99 year old grandmother likes these, but goes absolutely nuts if they aren't crispy. I have to say, when they are soft, they are inedible....definitely a worthy confession

    2. I like frozen Ore-Ida french fries. Meaning, I like to eat them still frozen.

        I eat frozen veggies out of the bag…especially corn or peas. My husband thinks I’m crazy…

          Yuck. I can't stand the weird texture and flavor of frozen potatoes. Cooked, they're okay, but frozen? Yech.

        2. about once per year, i eat wispride cheese. straight from the container. with a spoon. til i am about sick and then throw the rest away.

            sadly, the can of spray cheeze is still sitting in my pantry
            (note to self, toss it when I get home, destroy the evidence!)

          2. I bought, took home and devoured a pepperoni personal pan pizza from the Pizza Hut Express thing at the Target snack bar yesterday. Something about that greasy little monstrosity was calling my name...
            And evidence? My husband was looking through my online debit statement and wanted to know what the heck I bought at Target for $4.27. I could only plead guilty. Not only for the worst little snack ever, but to not even having five bucks on me.

            1. This isn't really an example of terrible food, but I like to put potato chips in sandwiches. I guess it's a normal thing to do, but I always feel like I don't want anyone to catch me doing this!

                there is a local place that sells a burger with cape cod chips and cheddar on it.

                    Remember the old school Frito commercials. It was a given to put them on the sandwich
