Sarah | 13815 comments I have never bought a loaf of white bread in my life, nor non-health food peanut butter. I have been known to mock those who would buy a box of pre-made peanut butter sandwichs rather than just making that easiest of foods. Nevertheless, while working at camp I became hopelessly addicted to grape-jelly-and-peanut-butter Uncrustables. I liked them semi-frozen, even, so I would grab a couple from the walk-in before heading out to drive kids into the middle of nowhere so that by lunchtime they'd be semi-defrosted.

Ken (playjerist) | 721 comments I think we need two categories: embarrassment over items consumed while completely straight, and embarrassment, dismay and perplexity over items consumed while completely loaded.

In the first category I had a very brief fling with Cheetos which shames me to this day. In the latter category, while loaded I have put things in a pan or skillet and attempted to cook them, whether they were actually food or not. And eaten them. And enjoyed them. And lived.


message 3: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments Yeah, I was thinking more along the lines of sober, since we already have a thread or two about the grossest/weirdest things you've ever eaten, many of which involve intoxication.


message 4: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments I like a bunch of things frozen that are meant to be defrosted, as another example.
If I freeze fresh blueberries to use later in smoothies, I end up eating them all before the smoothie happens. I'll also eat frozen peas straight from the freezer.

I've never developed a taste for that one.

Yum is right. Also good fried up.

I like Corned Beef Hash. From a can. With poached eggs.

Roomates have laughed at me. Called my food "dog food."

I don't care. It tastes like a happy Saturday morning to me.

Jim | 6485 comments I like Corned Beef Hash from a can too Sally. It has been years since I've had it though.

Félix (habitseven) CBH & poached eggs is one of my not-so-guilty pleasures, too.

Restaurants try to make it all fancy. I don't like that. I wonder if I would like Spam if I tried it too?

try it chopped up with pasta, vegetables and a red sauce.


message 17: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments and while you're cooking, have some cold spam as a snack :)

Is it basically a hot dog in a can?


message 19: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Yum. That's the way I like to cook, too.

at the least very similar.


message 23: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Cheese.


message 24: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Squeeze cheese... that's what I called it when I was a kid. I liked to artfully decorate my crackers with it.

Brittomart Heidi, do not be embarrassed about likin' cracklins, honey. They are awesome.

Okay, y'all know those XXL Chalupas from Taco Bell/Hell? OMG. I had a total of two (non-consecutively), and I felt like a terrible human being for eating them, but I liked them.

I agree on the fact that they're awesome, Britt (especially when they're freshly made). It's just... they're, like, fried fried fatty pork - double fried fat (with a side of meat). It wasn't until I started traveling that I became self-conscious of eating fried stuff... esp the fried fried stuff. I haven't had them in ages, though.

I won't eat 'em if they're prepackaged... just the freshly made variety (which I only ever see in Louisiana when I go home to visit family... which is maybe once every year-2 years).

Félix (habitseven) Chalupa. Gotta love that word.

I had a sudden picture of a new Jewish-Mexican food hybrid: the Challupah.

I tried a google image search to see if anyone had invented this yet, and was disconcerted to get the following images:






I'm assuming all of these are pets that someone has named Chalupa because I don't want to think of the other options.

Is her name Chalupa? The chinchilla, not your daughter.

I've been having kind of a dyslexic eye lately so I read that as "Unscrutables."

If I'm buying some low-rent box of packaged snacks, say Hostess Suzy Qs or Little Debbie creme-filled oatmeal cookies, or Little Debbie Donut Sticks (I highly recommend the latter), depending on what store I'm in (stores in the ghetto do not judge), I won't get in the same line as yuppies whose baskets are filled with organic kale and fresh strawberries.

Helena | 1058 comments Blue steak. I never eat steak in public as a result.

Hamburger helper with some cherry cola or something equally sweet.


message 35: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart I'm not too embarrassed about this, but give me a cucumber, some vingear, and salt & pepper, and I will love you forever.


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

You are very easily satisfied Britt.

Throw in some croutons, tomatoes and olive oil into that mix and it's on.


message 38: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart OH! Comfort Food? Fried Egg and Bologna sandwich.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches are quite good.


message 40: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart how do you fry peanut butter?


message 42: by Félix (last edited Feb 18, 2011 04:53AM) (new)

Félix (habitseven) Very carefully, uBritt. Very carefully.

Nope. Her name is Sage.

The sandwiches are cooked like a grilled cheese in a skillet. :)

Jammies iBritt wrote: "how do you fry peanut butter?"

Britt, you make fried or grilled PB sandwiches just the same way you make grilled cheese--make a PB sandwich, butter the outside, fry it in a pan or stuff it in the Foreman grill, cook. I love grilled PB sandwiches and I am not ashamed of that love.

For me, the food love that dare not speak its name is Totino's pizza rolls. *hangs head in shame*


message 46: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Cross post. :)


Lyzzibug ~Still Breathing~ (lyzzibug) | 708 comments @Heidi: Boudin and Craklins are great! I make sure I stock up whenever I go visit my grandmother in Lafayette.

I love eating the pickles from MacDonald burgers. My kids hand theirs over.


message 49: by Phil (new)

Phil | 11605 comments You can have mine, too, Gail.

We used to make those pickles scream! We would put them on the grill, then take our metal searing tool and push down hard on the pickle. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!

It was fun.
