Are You Snacking On Anything Right Now? Part Deux!!

I went on and on about the chocolate pudding cake upon which I am currently hovering. As I suspected, #2 son killed the charger in my whipped cream, and so I shall have to do without. :( Brat.
Anyhoo, it would appear that us 'hounds love to snack. LOVE to snack. From Kombu chips to Curty Wurty pops (thanks for the education on those, suzigirl!!) to leftover fried dill pickles, we have an awesome commonality: loving to snack and loving to write.
So, let's do it again!!

  1. Having been up since 3 a.m, breakfast happened at 6:30, so this definitely qualifies as a snack: sliced rare leftover steak that I salted and am currently eating with my fingers. Gawd, Bad-mannered, but delicious. Accompanied by a Pepsi w/ crushed ice, de riguer every.single.day.of.my.life. :)

    1. Roasted seaweed snacks - I always feel odd indulging in seaweed but it's so addicting

        Oh, yum. Love those things, but I usually don't care much for seaweed, though I do enjoy sprinkling kombu and gomasio on my noodle bowls. :) I bet it's the umami that keeps you coming back for more. I'm like that too; given the choice between sweet and savory, I'll take the savory ANYtime.
        I dipped into last night's chocy pudding cake just now, but I only took two bites. And now it's off to the grocery. Have a wonderful day, everybody!! And tell us what you're snacking on right now!!

          Well I'm an umami-glutton so that would make sense. I'm convinced that I have 90% glutamate receptors.

            I probably need to satisfy my cravings with seaweed snacks and not Burker King! And I do have some nice salty wakame crisps in the cupboard. Maybe this will help me get over my junk food bender. I feel awful after eating crap for two days . . . and I have a stomach of iron, most of the time.

            1. re: MrsPatmore

              Seaweed snacks are addicting! The trader joes roasted are good but I'm hooked on the seasnax toasted onion.

              Hope you feel better. I'm like ghat at the holidays. I can indulge with the best of them for about 4 days and then I'm ready to go to my usual.

              1. re: fldhkybnva

                I'll look at Fresh Market to see if they have "seasnax". We don't have a TJ's or Whole Foods or anything decent around here. :(

                I don't usually believe in this sort of thing, but I really feel like I need to do a juice-fast! LOL I've been really, really bad. I'm thankful that my snacking buddies here on my favorite CH thread don't judge.

                1. re: MrsPatmore

                  I've seen them only at wegmans and whole foods but be on the lookout, I'm sure they are elsewhwre

                  1. re: MrsPatmore

                    Abslolutely no judgement on this thread.

                    1. re: suzigirl

                      Thank goodness. I just ate 12 oz. salted pistachios. I'd hoped the shells would slow me down. Well, um, they did. But only a wee bit. Apparently, I'm an unstoppable, carbohydrate, sodium machine.

                      1. re: MrsPatmore

                        Before i got gastroparesis I would have put your butt to shame. I miss pigging out like a rock star.

                        1. re: suzigirl

                          I'm hoping my pig out soul returns next week. It's been hiding for 3 years now, just can't pack it away any more but now that my appetite is crawling back maybe I can enjoy the upcoming feast enough to serve 20 but only feeding a party of 2.

                          I must admit I can still eat a bit but the tummy issues have taught me to pig out on the good stuff, don't waste precious stomach room on food that's not really thaaatt good.

                        Hell no. No Judy Judgertons need apply. :)

          2. Goat cheese and kalamata olives on wheat toast. I wanted cream cheese and pimento-stuffed green olives on white, but had to improvise based on what was in the fridge. PS Thank you, mamachef, for starting a new thread!

              Nummy snack, MrsPatmore! And it was my pleasure to start the new thread - that old one was freakin' ridiculous.

                1. re: fldhkybnva

                  <was suprised and happy that it took off like it did. :)

            2. Pizza-flavored Goldfish, which seemed like a good idea at the time when I spotted the bag on the shelf. I'm also eyeing the jar of anchovies.

              1. I am beyond jealous. I can no longer get my beloved Curty Wurty pops. It is sad. Have one for me. Which flavors have you tried?

                  I fell in love with the peach cream, ma'am. Haven't even bothered to try another kind. Eventually I will, because that's how I roll - I fall in love with a product and go into full saturation mode, and then one day I wake up and decide to try something else. :) Like, I've changed favorite candy bars yearly since college.

                    1. re: mamachef

                      My pusher(ice ceeam man) can't get them from the distributor in Tampa. I miss them.

                        He should be flogged. I'll eat a nice creammyummypeachyswirlydelicioustastythanksforturningmeontothemone for you. In your honor. And say a silent prayer, and...
                        Actually what will happen is: I'll forget all about your poor deprived self :) and wolf one down and marvel at how yummy it is.
                        :)

                          Man I miss those lovely little buggers. Who doesn't like peaches and cream popcicles?
