I don't know where to begin....I am addicted to pizza, root beer, cider (the hard stuff, and no I am not alcoholic:) ), and, of course, Gummi Bears!!! Of course there are a few others that I would like to be addicted to, but they cost way too much!!

This is one of those "where do i start?" kind of polls, like the favorite sandwich one.
I am addicted to soda, but I've been better lately. It's easier in the summer to turn to juices and water, because frankly, soda doesn't quench my thirst or cool me off.
I can't go very long without a good rotation of food. Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Mexican..
I think I'm just addicted to food in general ;)

Definitely coffee. Primo #1 addiction. If I ever tried to give up coffee, they'd have to sedate me for 3 days so I could live through the withdrawal. (Like they do to drug addicts.)

As for solid foods...

* Bread
* Pasta
* Sweets
* Tomatoes

This is a good topic right now - with all our stuff in boxes, it's easy to find solace in something sweet or fried. Once we're settled in FL and a routine has established itself, I think eating right will be easier.

I agree with everyone and everything. If I had to make a choice though it would be cheap cardboard pizza from the local true Italian pizzaria LOADED with Pepperoni!!!!!!!!!

And I'm on a 3 month dieting program so leave me alone:D
Though I can pig out once a week!!!!:lips:

Diet Coke. I don't have a blood stream, I have a Diet Coke stream. I get a cut, I don't bleed, I fizz. Every few hours, I get too much blood in my Diet Coke stream and I have to redilute it with fresh elixir.

Leftovers. Cold, straight from the fridge. Doesn't matter leftover WHAT. Could be pizza, roast chicken (especially the bones), mac & cheese, anything in a doggy bag. Once I start, I just can't stop myself :eek: :eek: :eek: Standing in the corner by the sink, digging into the plastic container with my fingers, please, someone help me!!!!!!! (That's why I usually freeze anything that's left; so that it will still be there when I'm ready to make it into something else)

I am addicted to my homemade bread, cookies and ice cream.


Maybe shrimp too. I love shrimp any way it's fixed, and tomatoes out of my garden.

But Kimmie, the whole point of an addiction is that one has no control over oneself. It's the addictive nature of ... whatever you're addicted to, to take control over you, instead of vice versa.:( (Sorry, my dictionary is not much help on this one.)

If you were ever a cigarette smoker, you'd understand. :smoking: :smoking: :smoking: :smoking:

Maybe if I weren't such a good cook ... :rolleyes: ;)

Forgot one - and I'd be interested to know if anyone else has this particular problem...

Free Food

Whenever meetings are catered I can't stop myself. Maybe it comes from "having gone without." (Not exactly a bountiful childhood...) It feels like an involuntary response - if food is there and it's free, I feel I need to load up. To a lesser degree the same holds true for buffets. If it's one price, I feel a desire to leave uncomfortably full or I feel I'm not getting my $$ worth.

Any thoughts?

I always wanted a custom bumper sticker for my beat-up S-10..."This truck brakes for potato chips."
Pizza, ice cream, chocolate, uh, actually, whatever I happen to be eating at the moment, even down to the mix of Trix and Apple Stroodle cereal I just woofed. This morning it was bialys with pepper jack cheese melted onto them. And now me and No. 1 daughter are off to Dairy Queen.

Dips and dunks....if it's a decent dip I'll dunk until it's gone, veggies, chips, breadsticks, lavosh, ...go figure....Donuts in coffee, another addiction I try hard to just avoid. I also pick at containers of berries...or the crusty cheese on the side of a pan, say what is that called anyway?
I hanker for Thai and Veitnamese noodles.

Coffee. Sometimes I drink up to two pots of coffee in one day. I need to cut down.

Duck. Keep that stuff away from me. I love duck, I love duckfat even more. I can sit down and eat a whole duck fat and all. It's sick...

Altoids. I've recently had to stop purchasing them. Might as well be smoking a pack of cigarettes a day.

Kuan, along with duck and duck fat, are duck cracklin's. You know, the crispy skin left over from rendering all the fat. At one of my old jobs, we always pulled them out, hit them with salt and tobasco. I couldn't walk past the prep table they were sitting on without grabbing a handful!!!!

What a great question...

Chips and spicy chunky salsa
Delicious steaming mussels
Chicken and rice

Those would definitely have to be my weaknesses... oh what a weak person i am...

About the free food/buffet thing, i dont know about free food. it all really depends on the food. Like free Chips Ahoys or Oreo or maybe hot pizza. Sometimes though, food thats given away for free doesnt look all that appitizing. Like crusty doughnuts.
And im not ususally a big fan of buffets. Some are good, but i've experience some that are gross where cold food left out for hours were the least of their problems.

By free, I don't mean the food has been offered by the preparer at no charge, I mean it's free to me. i.e. Offered at a meeting or event of some type. Someone paid for it - just not me.

Cracklin's yummy! The DMO's thought they were the best darn "chicharone" ever! Also, anyone eat the marrow out of roasted veal bones before you set them on the boil? Simple pleasures... mmm. Sometimes the stuff you're not supposed to serve is the best in the world, like the bones carved off a 109, or the edge of a potato gratin. Yum...

Crunchy Cheetos- if I buy a bag they're gone
Chocolate chips- who needs dough or cookies?!?
Orange mocha anything- I will never pass up an opportunity
Fresh bread, hot, with butter
Sesame soba noodles
My Mom's barbecued ribs (I see her once a year, and beg her to make them)
Rice
My blackberry pie (If I make this for dessert where I work, I always end up taking some home, which defeats the purpose!)

I love all you people!!!:bounce: You make me feel like I'm not the only pig around!:eek:
If I could have only one fantasy it might be that I could eat anything and everything with no ill effects. I could eat as much in one sitting as only a 260 lb football player so that I wouldn't be too much of a glutton, but I would never get fat or clogged arteries or any other malady that comes from the gluttony I long for.
If we had our way we'd probably all look like "Fat Bastard" from Austin Powers:D

What a great topic! Here goes:

Rillettes du porc
Baguette (in France- must be the flour)
Schmaltz
Fricos (those little melted cheese thingies)
Bacon
Crispy poultry skin
Artichokes
Fresh figs (yes, you can eat too many)
Black licorice (the hard, chewy kind- not the soft plastic type)
Fritos
Hummus (Jane Brody's recipe, tweaked my way, served with sesame bagel chips)
Popcorn

Basically, if it's fatty, salty and carby, my name is on it.

OMG.........I looooove black licorice (the hard chewy kind) :eek: I just dont know where to find it in the US. :(

As for the free food Chiff....since you put it that way...I love meeting food. :) When I take an Admin Consultant position at a company, I usually find a place that I like and "suggest" to the boss that they'd be good for catering. :cool:

I am relatively addiction-free - had the misfortune :) though to marry a woman who agrees with Madame Lily Bollinger about her product:

I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad.
Sometimes I drink it when I am alone.
When I have company I consider it obligatory.
I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am.
Otherwise I never touch it, unless I'm thirsty.

Mmmmmmm! Bacon!

Had my first, fresh picked in season Jersey tomato BLT today.:D

Forgot a favorite: halva!

Keep that stuff away from me, because I cannot stop eating it- any flavor... doesn't matter.

It is a good thing I do not live in the UK

I forgot some stuff. I was addicted to several foods while traveling in Scotland and England, foods that if I could get them regularly here, I would never stop eating them.

"Lemonade"- its a carbonated lemony drink, not pulpy pink nastiness

Hob Nobs- delicious

Turkish Delight- I know I could make this for myself. For my sake, please do not tell me how. It was in so many candy and tourist stores and I love the stuff.
