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

        LOL, and so true! Hands are a blur, so who knows?


    2. 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.

        1. Too hard a question for me, too many things.

          1. 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.

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

                  1. Just FYI there are a ton of previous threads on this topic, the most recent one is here http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/906865

                      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).


                    2. 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;)

                      1. 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

                        1. 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

                          1. 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.

                            2. 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.

                              1. 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.
