Guilty Pleasures

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!

  1. 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.

      I'm swooning over your list! Indulged in every single one of them! :)

        These threads are great, although I guilt to be had!

      2. Nacho Doritos. Long list of chemicals, but sometimes I just have to have them.

        1. 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!!

          1. Spam and Vienna sausages. Not at the same meal.
