Steak n shake makes me happy

Postby RobC » Sun Aug 30, 2015 4:41 pm

Now that I no longer consume mass quantities of calories via beer I am always hungry. And I love to eat, really love the holidays now without drinking. More room for food without all the booze filling me up.
So what's your favorite pig out spot or pig out food.

I must admit I'm a KFC fan. It creases me. It's murder after eating it. But it's sooooo good.

That said, I've lost pushing 4 stone in the time I've stopped drinking, so I don't go the KFC route very often :lol:

i also have a thing for cheesy puffs :oops:

Try making some apple pie.

Here's a good recipe:

Apple Graham Cracker Pie

Cut in eighths
6 tart apples

Add
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup water
Cook slowly until the apples are tender. Add
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Mix
24 graham crackers, crushed fine
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 pound butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Pat into a 9-inch pie plate. Fill with the apple mixture. Dot with crumbs. Bake 1 hour at 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 celsius). Cool, and serve with or without whipped cream (or ice cream).

It sounds really bad, but for a long time is was White Castle. Now I just really love to eat again, anything and especially to try new things. Of course, that IS my profession, being a chef. But it is amazing how much more enjoyable food is to me now!

I'm a noodle freak; it must be my Japanese genes! :lol:

Sukiyaki and potstickers are also a favourite of mine and my daughters. Mrs Tosh is a lot more reserved than us, which is a shame, but she puts up with it.

Believe it or not, my comfort food of choice is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Must be a childhood thing. Oh, and potato chips on the side. Mmmumm, just like mom used to make. :wink:

Hershey's chocolate syrup + Jif peanut butter + spoon = nirvana

It's peanut butter and pretty much anything, for me. The strangest being ketchup.

Home made jam. My little garden provides all my fruit. Gooseberries, rhubarb, tayberries, strawberries, plums, apples, redcurrants and blackcurrants. Autumn is jam making time. All year round is jam eating time. Plus plenty to share with my friends. One more small reward of sobriety.

That's pretty sick, Duke, you need to have a chat with your sponsor. :lol:

peanut butter and marmite is strangely satisfying.

I make my own nut butters, roast the nuts and grind them smooth. We live on that stuff! Almond, cashew, etc.
