Simply Irresistible

The season of eating is definitely coming up. There are a few parties coming up and we've also started talking about what we should prepare for the two birthdays coming up at the end of December - the one for the BIG guy upstairs as well as the one for the littlest guy in our house.

It got me thinking of all the food that I find irresistible. I don't have very sophisticated taste buds at all and am easily pleased as you'll see.

So here's a list of the foods that I can't, won't and don't resist. Its not a list of all the foods I like because the would be too long:

* Fresh bread. Even if I've just had something to eat, if I go out to the store to get bread and its still warm when I get home, I can't resist one (or two slices).

* Cheesecake. I'm not much of a cake person but these are the exception.

* Hard Boiled Eggs. Actually, its the tip that I can't resist. Whenever I have to slice a hard boiled egg with an egg cutter, I have to eat the top tip.

* Pasta. If I had to pick between rice and pasta, its always going to be pasta. And yet, I have rice about 6 nights a week. Oddly, whenever I'm at a hotel, I always look to see if they have boring old Spaghetti Bolognese. They always have it the way that I like which is also the way that I never seem to be able to replicate - the not-so-tomato-y way.

* Lap Cheong. These are Chinese Dried Sausages. I love these so much that if these are served at a meal, I usually don't touch any of the other dishes. Just the plain white rice and the lap cheong will do.

* Pineapples. I've only recently been able to eat these and now, a newly bought pineapple doesn't last 2 hours in our house before I start cutting it up.

Its your turn now. Tell me about the food that you just can't/won't/don't resist.

Must of those I can't resist. I love any form of mature cheese.

Everybody I know likes cheesecake except me. And in St. Louis there is a variation of it called Gooey Butter Cake. It even has it's own wikipedia page.

Foods I can't resist...hmmm...
- Corned Beef and Cabbage (my absolute, no-holds-barred, all-time favorite...the food of the gods...but the cabbage has to be made Bavarian style, like Agnes makes it).
- Basmati Rice (what a wonderful smell!)
- Ham (includes bacon!)
- Mushrooms (fixed any way) I'm hungry, and it's still a few hours until lunch...

vw: ovallint - fluzz that collects in your oval.

JLP - I like cheesy things but so far don't get very far with the mature cheeses. Maybe as I mature, my taste buds will too.

Mike - Thats an interesting sounding cake.

Bilbo - I wonder if you like Chinese dried mushrooms......

Brian - You're THE WINNER!!!! So many things!
