Today just so happens to be Eat What You Want Day.

Presuming they mean Eat What You Want And Not Gain Any Weight Or Fat From It Or Have To Pay For It (just humor me here), then I'll have:

  • Steak, medium well, smothered in sauteed mushrooms and onions
  • A loaf of garlic bread. And not the kind you buy frozen and heat up. I want home made.
  • Two baked potatoes, smothered in butter and sour cream.
  • Two ears of Long Island corn, slathered in butter and salt.
  • A pound of bacon, deep fried.
  • Blueberry pancakes, made with fresh blueberries, not compote, and cooked inside the pancakes, not slopped on top. With butter and maple syrup, please.
  • Grilled swiss cheese with tomato on foccacia bread.
  • Bread pudding with bourbon sauce
  • A jar of Skippy creamy peanut butter. And spoon.
  • A gallon of coffee ice cream
  • Chicken Francese. I'll cook it, thanks. It's my specialty.
  • A bowl of seafood bisque
  • Lobster stuffed with crabmeat
  • A huge pot of mussels and clams, in broth made by my father
  • A bowl of Captain Crunch, a little on the soggy side
  • Grits with butter, cheese and salt
  • Biscuits with white gravy
  • Polenta
  • A dozen pierogies, sauteed with butter, onions and garlic
  • Outback Steakhouse cheese fries (two orders, please)
  • Two Arby's roast beef sandwiches
  • 1 Lb of pignoli cookies from Dortoni's Bakery in Levittown
  • 2lbs of mashed potatoes with garlic, sour cream and butter. Maybe some cheese.

That's it. For starters.

» Eat What you want day! from Not Exactly Rocket Science
I wish.... According to this, today is Eat What You Want Day! Yay! You can celebrate one of two ways: 1. Buy Steve-O's book or (substantially cheaper a.k.a. free)... 2. Share what you would eat if you could eat everything... [Read More]


  • Steak, medium well, smothered in sauteed musrhooms and onions
  • A loaf of garlic bread. And not the kind you buy frozen and heat up. I want home made.
  • Two baked potatoes, smothered in butter and sour cream.

Almost exactly what I made for dinner for my wife on Mother's Day. My potatoes were mashed and loaded with sour cream, butter, green onions, garlic, and monterey jack cheese.

Oh, and asparagus with hollandaise.

You're making me hungry. Stop that.

Good list. But coffee ice cream? Yech.

Oh well, to each their own!

  • A pound of bacon, deep fried.

Oh, and as delicious as this one may be, I wouldn't recommend it. BTDT, I'm afraid. It's amazing how much bacon you can eat if you're not paying attention to how much you've eaten. And it's amazing how much you feel like you're going to die a few hours later.

  • Chicken Francese. I'll cook it, thanks. It's my specialty.

Recipe? Please?

That was better than porn. By the time I got to the peirogies, I got too worked up and had to think of Durst's "O" face so I could make it to the end.

A very large piece of "Better than Sex" cake (it's a deep chocolate with cinnamon)
Steak-medium with sauted onions, banana peppers and garlic
My Mom's chicken enchiladas and chile rellenos
Chocolate chip pancakes with peanut butter and syrup...don't laugh until you try it!
Breyer's Vanilla Fudge M&M ice cream
New York cheese cake with fresh strawberries
Lobster...a couple of them, actually
Cinnamon crumb cake
A loaf of banana nut bread-warm with butter
A plate load of crab legs
Oh...I could go on and on...

mmmmmm, pierogies

Chocolate fondue
Strawberries,sour cream and brown sugar

Eat what you want day, huh.

For starters:

1. Angelina Jolie
2. Salma Hayek
3. Torry Castellano (drummer for The Donnas)

I'm sure I'd throw some food in there, too. At the very least, whipped cream.

Oh, Michele. Steak, medium well??? Argh.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm....homemade garlic bread.

Who said chile rellenos? Oh man. I'll take a 13 × 9 casserole of those. And another of green corn tamales with sauce and cheese like Ricardo's in Phoenix used to make, when there was a Ricardo's, which I think now there is not, or they're only down to one location or something. And cheese enchiladas verdes made with no fat but lard, lard and only lard. With a side of steamed rice. Steamed rice that has first been sauteed with chopped tomato and onion . . . in lard.

I think that takes care of the Southwestern U.S. for the moment. For dessert I'll go the opposite direction and just take the entire day's production of the Rockland Bakery.

I don't need to be thinking about topics like this, I really don't.

Damn, Michele...how about a wafer thin mint? :)

As for myself, when it comes right down to it, nothing beats a big plate of spaghetti with about a gallon of meat sauce on it.

"Bring me a bucket."

Omigod. Save for I've never even had a pierogie (ok I was born and raised in Los Angeles!), the list sounds about right.

PORTERHOUSE steak...rare enough to "moo" with creamy horseradish or

I'll tie just a few of my faves with restaurants... best primerib, Lawry's or Summit House. Green corn tamales no where better than at El Cholos (they've been around since 1923, I think there is a reason why). And oh..how I love Japanese food and some of the best at Katana on Sunset Blvd... the lobster cigar appetizers MMMMMMM (and not forgetting the hot sake) ... Best Reuben sandwich (and Irish coffees) I only get when I travel to Frisco at the Buena Vista..

Best to-die-for-chocolate mousse pie, made with brandy, dark chocolate and tons of cream...

Oh... I make that one myself. :-)

If I were on death Row:

From Red Lobster: 30 fried shrimp, with sauce; a dozen cheese biscuits; and 2 big margaritas.

A chicken Mole burrito from Qdoba (do you have those in New York? They rock!)
A fat roast beef and Swiss sub, with letuce, tomato, onion, lots of Swiss, and horseradish.
A bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough, and a BIG spoon.
A giant baked potato, with butter, sour cream, pepper, and some crumbled bacon.
And Selma Hayek sounds about right for dessert, Mikey. Maybe some Alyssa Milano on the side.

16 eggs
Their mothers
The pig in the stall next door.
That overloaded looking cow's udder's extract...skim the cream and save it; put the rest on the side.

Okay, that's breakfast. Go find me some taters and onions and we can talk lunch.

if you're in Toronto, be sure to stop by Gretzky's for the pierogies... yummy!

how about a gallon of cream of four onion soup with toasted fresh parmesan baguettes?

  • Blueberry pancakes, made with fresh blueberries, not compote, and cooked inside the pancakes, not slopped on top. With butter and maple syrup, please.

That was my Mother's Day breakfast to a "T" -- nothing beats fresh blueberries! I'll send you a pic of how much the wee one enjoyed them for the first time, too.

Crispy Chicken Fried Steak smothered in cream gravy.
Hashbrowns smothered in cheese, onions, and chile.
My Grandma's beef enchiladas.
Biscuits and gravy.
Creamy tomato soup in a bread bowl.
Fried cheesecake
Captin Morgan and Dr. Pepper to drink.

Well, if the "not paying for it" includes not having the tummy-upset from Too Much Fried Food, I'd like:

1. A grilled cheese sandwich, a large order of onion rings, a real chocolate shake (not one of those damn fast-food things that they make out of chalkdust in sacks. A real shake, with real ice cream, real milk, and real chocolate syrup).

2. Roast prime rib with Yorkshire pudding, mashed sweet potatoes, garden-fresh green beans

3. A large hot fudge sundae, don't scrimp on the whipped cream. And nuts? Yes, please.

4. That garlic bread sounds good.

5. Or, on second thought, maybe the garlic-cheese biscuits from Red Lobster.

6. Dim sum. Just keep the trolleys a-comin'. No fish ones, though, thanks.

7. Crab rangoons. Freshly fried, none of those flabby-been-sittin'-on-the-buffet-for-half-an-hour ones.

8. Big platter of freshly boiled Gulf shrimp and king crab legs, with plenty melted butter to dip them in, garlic butter for the shrimps.

9. A plate of fried clam strips. (Don't laugh, I love those things)

I also concur on the chocolate-chip pancakes. I've never quite been decadent enough to use peanut butter on them, although that sounds wonderful.

Yikes. By and large, I identify with your taste on each one of these items, but that list and then, "For Starters"? Either you are just a uniquely ravenous woman or it must actually be Eat What You Want and Not Gain Any Weight or Fat From It or Have To Pay For It And Yet, Tortuously, Never Have Your Desperate Appetite Sated Day.
