1. Runny cheese
2. Buttery seafood (shrimp or lobster )

    3. Perogies and cabbage rolls.
    4. Koshari - it's an Egyptian dish consisting of rice, macaroni, lentils, chick peas and tomato sauce. Quite yummy.
    5. Any food my mother-in-law makes. She's an amazing cook. :)

    1. Oh, and I forgot - jiiazi - a Chinese dumpling consisting of ground pork and bok choy, and we have it first boiled (and eat as much as humanly possible, and end with soup), and any left overs are fried up the next day for pot stickers. YUMMMY. That's our Christmas Eve meal with my inlaws. :)

    2. OH YES...FORGOT DOSAS...what is wrong with me??????

    3. You were busy thinking of your Mom-made, authentic Indian meal... :)

    6. Shalaka - then I hope you mom won't mind me licking my plate - especially if there is lots of coconut chutney ... :)

    7. HAHA! No she wont...I DO..... I was gonna say...cocnut chutney is her specialty!

  5. Perfect topic since today is my Birthday!!!

    1. Cheese fondue (on the menu for tonight)
    2. Chocolate fondue (also on the menu for tonight)
    3. Good resturant quality Macaroni and Cheese(not the stuff from the boxes)
    4. Gosh, any chocolate really and if you can add peanut butter to the chocolate, it is perfect.
    5. Chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes with country gravy. OK, that is a meal and not necessarily a food, but I can get away with that today, can't I?

    Also, I've written a middle school aged book and published it on Amazon.com. Today is a FREE promotion day. Each download helps my ranking. It is a short fun read about three 7th grade girls who play in their middle school band. See my blog for more info. Thanks for letting my stick this in...

  6. Hey all! I have NO EMAIL TODAY!! (since last night) Turns the Apple icloud for email and notes is DOWN FOR 0.17% of its users. GUESS WHO IS PART OF THAT 0.17% ?????????? Yup, that would be me! Is this serendipitous? Should I feel privileged to be part of such a small and exclusive percentage??? Anyway, it is the fact today. I'm also going to be traveling home from Montreal today, so double "out of contact".

    That said, LOVE all these food lists! Oh my god, making me hungry. As I said, I am such a foodaholic that any interesting food is intoxicating. Thanks for all the anniversary wishes -- we had a GREAT time. Much of the food I mentioned was featured on our menu! A huge thanks to my dad and stepmom for stepping up at the last minute to host our delicious and delightful affair :)

    Molly, CONGRATS!! Will check in when I get back. So proud of you!!! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!

    p.s. Happy Birthday, Molly!

  10. 1. Fried fish basket-- haddock, steak fries, and onion rings. (One idea of a romantic date for me is sitting at a bench or on the wall at a beach on the ocean. If we stay out of the water, Revere Beach (in Revere, MA) is a decent setting.)

    2. Vanilla soft serve ice cream in a wafer cone. (Still with that beach theme. This part involves walking down the sidewalk along the beach holding hands.)

    3. Porterhouse steak - one of the few red meats I'll eat. TO DIE FOR. (This is off the beach, btw.)

    4. GOOD pad thai. (Still no sand.)

    5. Molten chocolate cake. (Who cares where?)

  11. Oi... I love food! :D

    1. Chocolate ice cream

    2. Calamari with Tzaziki

    3. Wiener Schnitzel with Fries :o)

    4. Double Chocolat Donut (Oh, I miss you so much!)

    5. Spaghetti Bolognese (cooked that today ^_^ - I love pasta, could eat it every day)

    6. Käsespätzle :D

    7. Steak - yes, give me some meat!

    8. shrimps, prawns, wahtever

    9. Cake

    10. Salmon

    Better stop now...

  12. Internet problems again so if this appears twice sorry all.

    Yummy favorite foods : ) ( I dont get dates often so I am making this just generic favorite foods )

    1. Pizza....I mean good pizza - made by hand, with thin crust, by Italians. I hate getting crappy pizza from a food chain. I also think I am spoiled because here in Jersey we have some of the best Italian food outside of Italy!! IMHO : )
    2. Lasgana : ) I am vegetarian so I make my own with veggie crumbles (basically ground beef for vegetarians). It is awesomely delicious.
    3. My Grams's Sweet potatoes. Best in the whole world. Not my opinion it's fact! LOL
    4. Fresh fruit. Any kind is fine by me. Especially in the summer, nice cool frech juicy fruit is so delicious.
    5. Oreos and M&M's : ) My guilty pleasures in life!

    1. I, too, worship the Oreo gods.

    2. Oreo cookies have made Irish supermarkets and i think they are really nice , especially the double stuffed ones !

  13. hmm sexy food
    1: oysters especially those big plump ones that come from Dublin bay .

    2: black forest gateaux with cream and ice cream

    3: sushi

    4: smoked salmon

    5: any pasta with carbonara sauce

  14. Oh, my...Let's see...
    1. Chocolate, any chocolate.
    2. Fruit. Something about fruit just...I don't know, I just love it I guess.
    3. Chicken Parmigiani. Love it.
    4. Steak. What can I say?
    5. If I'm on a date and the guy does the cooking (instead of going out or me cooking) then I will eat almost anything (almost) as long as he put effort into it.
    Fun post!

  15. I'm home -- but still NO EMAIL!!!! Just an fyi, Deb is too busy today to check in, but she did in fact send me a list. If my email ever comes back and if it's in there, I will, of course, copy and paste! Of all my missed technologies, having no email is by far the MOST STRESSFUL AND WEIRD!!

    Okay, molten lava cake, yeah that's THE ONE. Mmmmmmm.... Such delicious lists here!!

  16. My strategy is this: choose my dessert first. Then select a meal that will not fill me up so much that dessert seems like a bad idea. (Eating half a meal to save room for dessert is always a good option.) Being over-full is not at all romantic.

    1. fadedginger, an excellent excellent strategy.

  17. 1. Vanilla bean ice cream. There's something very genuine about the bean specks...makes the flavor more potent in my mind.

    2. Ribeye steak, grilled medium. With garlic butter.

    3. Spaghetti bolognese with NO extra cheese sprinkled on top. Nothing irks me more than pasta with more cheese I didn't request.

    4. Toffee. Buttery, crunchy toffee.

    5. Roasted bone marrow spread on toast. I know, I know, sounds skeptical, but...dear god, bnoe marrow spread on toast - with something sweet like apple butter to cut through the saltiness - nothing better. I had that for my birthday dinner, and it was one of the best things I've ever eaten.
