poodle11 Jul 30, 2013 06:40 PM

    The trouble with bringing my leftovers to work for lunch is that i generally end up eating them for breakfast when I get to work. I love leftovers for breakfast, especially if it's pizza or pasta.

      Bahamian spiny lobster cooked in wine. So many that I can't stand the sight of them. Season started 1 August.

      A perfectly acceptable use for box wine stored a couple of months through the summer in the bilge.

        Nasty: Andy Capp's hot fries.
        Expensive: smoked gravlax
        Unhealthy: vodka

        There, that covers it!

          God I love Andy Capp's Hot Fries, and I'm not ashamed of it.

          I have a few

          Cold Spaghetti for breakfast
          Cottage cheese and peaches
          Tostino Pizza bites. - so bad for you for so many reasons. I don't eat these often. maybe once a year.
          Oysters - sometimes I just will have oysters instead of lunch
          my mom's home made Mac & Cheese

          Expensive guilty pleasures aka stuff my mom can't believe I spent money on.
          Dogfish head 90 minute IPA
          A 15 dollar burger at my favorite taproom

            Grilled cheese and peanutbutter sandwiches(only consumed when alone)
            Cottage cheese and green olives
            Ruffles and Deans bacon and horseradish dip
            Ruffles dipped in A1
            Cracker Jack'd salted caramel
            Instant grits with american cheese and butter.
            Pork brains in milk gravy with scrambled eggs. Very very guilty pleasure. It has over 3000 mg of cholesterol per serving

            That's a start

              Chili cheese fries and chocolate daiquiri's with rumplemintz. I live in the south, and if you don't, you haven't lived until you've had a drive thru daiquiri other than strawberry;)

                  Taro pies from McDonald's China. The only thing I'll buy at a McDonald's anywhere (I hope). Speaking of China, I guess another entry on this list would be Snickers, because convenience stores in the mainland are sorely lacking in the chocolate department (Dove is better, but I'm a fan of the peanuts...and whatever small change is in my pocket).

                      Now that's an idea I've never thought of...brilliant!

                        I am guilty of pleasuring myself with Vodka, and lot's of it. No, wait I don't think that sounds correct, I don't "pleasure" myself with, I've got to imagine that would burn a bit. But I do get pleasure from consuming lot's and lot's of Vodka.

                          Too hard a question for me, too many things.

                              There are sooo many.

                              On the really indulgent side: bread pudding from Nordstrom Cafe Bistro. It's the best I've ever tasted.

                              More on the ordinary side: Rice Krispy Treats.

                                  Hunt may keep his hands down, mine will be busy shoveling it into my mouth.
