so.. just for fun.. I thought I would make a list of the top ten things I would eat every single day if calories and ingredients weren’t an issue for me. Let's face it, most of us (at least women) have to even be more diligent as we get older..
So here we go!
#10 - Baby Ruth
This goes back to high school. Every day, my last period was 'gym' because it went straight into drill/dance team practice and every day, I would get a Baby Ruth bar, and a Dr. Pepper from the machine. I remember never eating one again after I gained so much weight a couple of years after high school. I dont recall exactly when that was...I remember the guy I was dating when it all happened and when I lost it, but thats about it. I would say I have had a miniture one maaaaybe a couple of times since high school!!! I just dont eat full size candy bars anymore! Lucky for me I am not a chocolate candy kind of girl.
#9 Iced White Chocolate Mocha - Starbucks
I am not a coffee drinker in the true sense of the word(s), but in the Summer I do love it iced. Its rare (as in once or twice) that I will get the same coffee in the Winter. But lately I have been having one of these about once a week. I do get it no fat/no whip which helps and even if I could have it full fat etc., I wouldnt. I don't understand whip cream on coffee.#8 - Homemade Ranch Dressing
Like the kind you make with a tub of sour cream and one of those little packets of Hidden Valley Ranch. I dont know that I could eat it with a spoon straight up, but pretty darn close. ;o)
#7 - Chicken Fried Steak WITH gravy
I havent had a chicken fried steak probably in about 25 years. And thats the Gods honest truth. I remember at my heaviest, for a few years after graduating from HS, you could have probably taken an xray of my ass and you would have seen chicken fried steaks Anyway, I somehow found out that in one CFS and gravy there were 60g of fat or something like that, and right then and there I swore off CFS's forever. I think I might have had one after I moved to Vegas, when this 'texas style' place opened up there with my boyfriend at the time (he was from Dallas), can't be certain, but I think I did (not that it mattered then, I was a size 0-2 3 of the 7 years I lived there). It was probably the only thing I had eaten in 2 days anyway. :o/
#6 - German Chocolate Cake - from scratch (even the icing)
This will never be the same. For as long as I can remember, sans this year and last, my momma would make me a 3 layer German Chocolate cake from scratch. And when I say from scratch I mean even the icing was made from scratch. I can still remember watching her over the stove stirring the ingredients, adding the coconut...German Chocolate Cake is my favorite favorite favorite! I wont miss her GCC as much as I miss her, but still...it just wont ever be the same ever again without her.
#5 - Blue Bell Ice Cream - specifically Mint Chocolate Chip
Is there anything really to say here? I mean come ON, its ice cream!!!
#4 - Mexican Food - Enchiladas
Another food I cant remember the last time I ate. I always say I am going to, especially after a marathon, but I get to the restaurant and I guilt myself out of it.
#3 - Queso (and tortilla chips)
Melted cheese, hot and spicy with salty chips? I die.
#2 - French fries - alone or WITH cheese!!
French fries. Double fried if possible. And yeah, cheese again? Sure. But I dont really care one way or the other, I just thought this picture looked super yummy!! I wanted to eat them off my computer screen!
#1 - drum roooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllll!!!
Rice (white) and gravy!!
Well I am a southern girl first and foremost, and by southern, I mean cajun. All my roots are in Lousiana, and my momma use to put gumbo in my bottle. Hello fat cell growth from the time I was borned. ;o) We didnt have potatoes, or even vegetables at every meal. But I tell you one thing that we did..that was rice and gravy. And yep, if it was the weekend you could have rice and gravy at breakfast and lunch if you were so inclined. Good God how I loved (and still do) my rice and gravy. I raaaarely eat white rice anymore, but I still long for it...I am even good at making it. The kind you cook for longer than 90 sec in the microwave too...I'm old school. You learned to cook rice before you could boil an egg. Its just the coonass way. :O) What I never could quite get tho is the gravy. Lord knows I tried, and a time or two it came out ok. I can do a 'natural' gravy but then again who cant? Now that I just wrote that I do believe I am going to attempt me some good old fashion the kind momma could make with her eyes closed and both hands tied behind her back kind of gravy this weekend. Maybe its the way I should celebrate Independence Day? I have to say, if I could get it right, there certainly would be fireworks in my mouth!!!!
|Whataburger! What In and Out is to the West Coast I guess you could say!|
|Peanut Butter (super chunk) and jelly (strawberry or orange marm only!)|
|I can't even believe I found a picture of these together! Ruffles and ranch dip! I seriously could eat myself into a coma with this duo!|
OK, so give it up....what is the one (or several) things you would eat all the time if there were no calories or fear from weight gain/health issues????
