Can't seem to get enough (insert food)

I tend to make a habit out of discovering some food, drink or combo I love, then eating it day after day until I get sick of it or move on to my latest and greatest "food kick."

So, with that said. Lately, I can't seem to get enough:

1) Smashed avocado on toasted english muffins, with a sprinkle of sea salt.

2) Biscoff spread. Great as a blob on top of greek yogurt. Throw in some quaker oatmeal squares and you're in gooey-cinnamon-cookie-heaven.

3) Dark chocolate almond milk. Amazing stirred into toasted coconut coffee. Usually I like cream in my AM coffee, but I literally have been jumping out of bed in the morning to make this. Can't complain about that.

What are 3 foods, drinks, or combinations you can't get enough of lately?

  1. A big bowl of fat fresh dark cherries, but sadly that season has drawn to a close.
    Really good avocados, this was a good year, to me. I finally started doing what DH does, cut one in half, crosshatch the insides with a dul knife, squeeze lime juice on, squish back and forth to coat, add salt, and enjoy the divine avocado with a spoon. And then plant the pits. It's the law. :)
    This is the real guilty pleasure- Kraft mac & cheese, the original in the blue box. I must think I can't get enough of it because I only let myself eat it once or so a year. Maybe have it three times a week for a month and see if I don't get sick of it. I hope.
    Really good okra in the summer- I'll eat it raw, it's so good.

    1. Iced matcha green tea, too.

      1. I am with you on the Biscoff spread/Speculoos obsession. But I feel like I'm more trying to kick my habit.

          What do you do with Biscoff spread? I bought a jar and after tasting it, it's still sitting in the cabinet. I thought I would love it but I don't. I thought I would use it like peanut butter or Nutella, but I don't. It's pretty much liquid cookie. While I love cookies, I wouldn't spread one on a slice of bread.

          I don't hate it but I can't figure out a place for it to make sense for me.

          1. re: Jpan99

            Biscoff spread is delicious with chocolate or with marshmallows.

        2. it's the end of summer and I always get into this mode

          tomatoes with a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle of sea salt, topped with basil
          peaches, washed and eaten out of hand
          fresh soft shell crabs, lightly dusted w/ flour, pan seared and served with a corn and black bean medley (like my fave restaurant does)

          1. 1. Guacamole. I eat it by itself, dip pork rinds into it, mix it with whatever protein I'm eating, mix it up in my salad, dip veggies into it...can't get enough!

            2. Roasted/BBQed pork. Boston Butts, spare ribs...mmm. Salty, smoky, fatty, and delicious.

            3. Skin-on, bone-in roasted whole chickens. Spatchcock method, please! I love picking meat off of the bones.

            1. Oh, heavens...

              1)I'm with the avocado gang. L.O.V.E. them.
              2) Shrimp, just boiled, peeled and deveined.
              3) Coffee

              1. Since recently moving back to Chicago, my consumption of red meat, pickled vegetables, natural casings, and synthetic nitrates has risen to irresponsible and possibly illegal levels. If I totally disregarded long-term health and short-term gastrointestinal function I could eat all-beef hot dogs, gyros and Italian beef sandwiches five meals a day.

                  I don't see a problem with this as you are getting all of your food groups in with just a gyro alone!
                  :-)

                  1. re: cgarner

                    Not to mention the salad on the Chicago dog!

                    Now, there's two things I can't get enough of, simply because I live in Georgia ..Italian beef and Chicago dogs. It's a 50 mile drive to the closest Vienna Meats dive.

                    1. re: jmcarthur8

                      Ugh, I totally understand. Until recently I was about 3000 miles away from the closest red-and-yellow-striped Vienna Beef awning. Now I'm making up for lost time.

                2. I had never heard of Biscoff spread, so I had to Google it.. It sounds so good I just had to go to Amazon and order some. OK 8 bucks per jar is a bit steep, but I don't intend to make a habit of it, unless, of course peanut329 is right.

                    If you have a Trader Joe's within reach, their version is under 4 bucks. AND EVIL.

                    1. re: Wahooty

                      Some WalMarts also have it, just under $4.

                        Thanks. Something to check on the next WallyWorld run.

                      2. re: Wahooty

                        Go ahead. Rub it in. One more thing I can't get because TJ won't come to our area.

                        1. re: al b. darned

                          Hey, my nearest one is 3 hours away. Which is probably good, because otherwise I would most likely subsist on a largely cookie butter-based diet. I'm a little afraid to see if my Wal-Mart has the one pine mentioned...

                      3. re: al b. darned

                        For next time, if you're near a Wegman's or Food Emporium, they sell it too. Also titled speculoos.

                      4. 1) Fresh ramen noodles....with all the toppings and more.....

                        2) Grilled cheese sandwiches....thick slices of French bread and at least 3 representations of cheese with a few perks....thinly sliced ham...avocado....sun dried tomatoes.....carmelized onions....bacon....anchovies....fried green tomatoes.....fried chicken livers....

                        3) Did I mention fresh ramen noodles with all the toppings yet?

                        1. Chocolate
                          Chocolate
                          Chocolate

                          1. 1. Dried Turkish apricots

                            2. Brussels sprouts, roasted and salted a la Ina Garten

                            3. Fresh raspberries . . . usually on their own, sometimes mixed into full fat vanilla ice cream, so the ice cream gets streaked with raspberry and the berries freeze a little . . . yummmm

                              If I have any fresh raspberries I like to fill a pastry tube with coarsely ground good chocolate, then pipe it into the cavity of the berry. Seems like milk chocolate tastes better than dark with raspberry, and melts a lot easier into the desired paste.

                              1. re: Tripeler

                                Maybe I should invest in a pastry tube. . . .

                                  You can use a plastic bag, and take a tiny snip off the corner with scissors.

                            2. Something Manadonese, probably with rica-rica (I can't remember the other sambal name, but this one's good too).
                              Bread with extra virgin olive oil, and ful.
                              Nigiri sushi, moriawase.
