Yummy Stuff I Could Eat Every Day...

....and usually do.

  • crunchy peanut butter
  • Brian's mom's plum or apricot jam
  • french vanilla yogurt
  • seedy bread
  • cheddar cheese; sliced really thin
  • oatmeal cookies
  • black licorice
  • bread crusts (I'm not fussy. I'll eat your kids' bread crusts too.)

Optional:

  • Anything roasted. ie: cauliflower, potato, carrots
  • Anything with a bit of grilled cheese on it. Especially the crunchy bits.
  • soft things like ice cream or chocolate pudding
  • dark chocolate. Really dark.
  • seeds and nuts. All of them.
  • coffee beans

Stuff I could probably live without:

  • shrimp
  • curry
  • onions that still have any crunch left to them.
  • steak
  • rare meat
  • garlic cheese
  • smokies
  • meatloaf
  • chips. I like chips, but I could live without them.
  • wonder bread
  • all cereal containing marshmallow bits; coloured bits; stuff that squishes; or turns your milk an unholy colour
  • milk; for that matter. I like soy milk better.

This is a reciprocal exercise. I showed you mine, now you have to show me yours.

I think cereal is really gross. Soggy, squishy mushy stuff soaked in milk? Ick.

I'm still addicted to "Sweet Chili Heat" doritos. Yum. My mouth waters when I just think of them.

I love lemon anything. I'd pick lemon over chocolate any day of any week. I know, I'm in the minority.

I don't like "christmas" oranges. They're too soggy and mushy. (I've got issues with soggy mushy things).

I could use one of Brian's lime margaritas right about now.

well, I know that curry is good, and when someone makes good curry i quite like it. But. I could live without it because I once had a roommate who went through a phase of cooking curry EVERY SINGLE NIGHT and I am still saturated from that experience.


Masawwa. No kidding. It would be so awesome if I could add that to my list of stuff I eat almost every day. yum.
Same yuck to escargot and sunny d. Those things are pure evil.

thai food. yum. Except that this is where my issue with shrimp was born. i had a bad thai/shrimp experience.

mexican food. OH!!! mexican food. beany goodness.... egg salad (yum) bean soup. Beans of any sort.

But olives and baked potatoes? holy shamoley, I love those things. green olives. black olives. kalamari olives. dead olives, live olives. olives with pimento.... AH, olives!

Cereal. Yeah, but cereal eaten out of the box, crunchy? yum. And porriage? yum. But soaked in milk? Just weird, and kind of evil.

I ate sweet chili heat in your honour this weekend. Not for me. It was a personal sacrifice, but I did it JUST for you.

Lemon. LEMON!! I can't believe I didn't think of lemon. I love lemon. Lemon cheesecake is the best cheesecake. Lemon drinks are the best. Lemony margueritas are the best! lemon chicken. lemon lemons. The Colour Lemon! I love lemon.

If you love lemon and you love chips, then do you love hint of lime doritos? I love those. That's one chip that I actually could not live without.

I have to go and snack now.

- Safeway’s Select brand lime frozen fruit bars (almost like having a margarita)
- Miss Vicki’s Honey & Roasted Garlic Chips
- Roasted Vegetables
- Fruit
- Costco or Tim’s Iced Capps (sadly, allow myself only 2-3/yr.)

Optional:
- coffee, tea
- hamburgers
- tomato sauces
- raw broccoli

I Could live without:
- dough (pastry especially, but including bread, etc.)
- ice cream
- chocolate
- most breakfast foods
- green peppers
- pasta
- vitamins that are too large to swallow (oops, not a food item; just needed to vent)

.e.

hold on a minute. There's chocolate covered black licorice?!

Dried apricots- yum. Or in Brian's lentil and apricot soup. Big Yum.
Also dried prunes. Actually, all dried fruit, in or out of pluma moos.

okay, e. You know that I love you passionately. But DOUGH??!! Dough is the cornerstone of my very existence. Without dough, how could I hope to maintain my doughy silhouette?! I LOVE DOUGH! or ice cream?! oh man.
I'm with you on the green peppers though. They are like backwards flatulence.

Love the lime chips and have found Bud Light Lime beer-as of now only available in the USA, but apparently coming to Canada by the end of May (that's my beer poetry for today) (and it comes in a super cool aluminum bottle)

Being a picky eater makes my list of "do without" extremely long...

food I could eat everyday
-pizza
-chocolate
-milk (real milk)
-greek salad with chicken
-fresh bread
