I have a fairly sophisticated palate. I know good food and consider myself an accomplished cook. Most of the time I prepare quality meals for myself but occasionally something slips and I crave something . . . different. From time to time that craving is for instant mashed potatoes with corn mixed in. Gobs of butter (okay- Smart Balance). I can't explain it. Do you have a weird guilty pleasure? Tell all!
I love, love, love instant mashed potatoes with gobs of melted cheese. I also like whipped butter on saltines, toasting marshmallows on the stove top, Magic Shell and those cheap maraschino cherries. Canned whipped cream Fruity Pebbles cereal and, someties, I mix jello powder with hot water and drink it instead of tea. And, oh yeah, sometimes I but the ends off of a Red Vine and use it as a straw.
What's the point of feeling guilt? Everything in moderation and it's all good. Guilty pleasures is a perennial discussion topic, as evidenced by many previous, some lengthy, threads:
Potato chips with malt vinegar and mayo. Peanut butter mixed with Redi Whip, honey, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
I still do feel guilty about these now that I'm not postpartum anymore!!
