If it's edible I like it. [Big Grin]

I'm a really big fan of Italian and Chinese though.

oh, and B Dubs is super good too. (B Dubs = Buffalo Wild Wings)

Drinks. Well, I don't drink alcohol and I try to avoid sodas (the occasional root beer). So I usually drink a LOT of gatorade or lemonade or water. I'm a crazy guy eh?

As for foods, I would have to say steak and good fried potatoes, and pizza (cheese or cheese and pepperoni only). I'm also a caffeine addict (coffee, Diet Mt. Dew or Diet RC). To counteract the caffeine, I drink lots of water as well. I'm always in the bathroom. [blush]

Recently we've been making our own raspberry icecream, if there's anything more delicious in the world, I've yet to try it.

I'm addicted to Oporto . I frequent the place two or three lunchtimes a week, or so. The Bondi Burger (with chilli) is awesome.

Like Tony, I stay away from sodas, with the occasional exception of Big Red and Bawls. My favourite all-time drink is tea! Chamomile, Jasmine, and Earl Grey suit me best.

I love stews. Seafood is killer, but when I think of the other favourites - tofu, chicken, beef - choosing just one is impossible. Oh, and of course I can't leave out the veggies: I overload my stews with those. A little cumin and chicken boullion can balance out the taste [Smile] .

Ahh... almost dinner time. I must tend to the chili!

I can't believe I forgot to mention the greatest restaurant here. I go to Cindy's Diner about once a week (when I have money). It's just a small 15 or so person diner with really good breakfast. I even have my own "usual" there... garbage, no onion, add sausage and ham; white toast; murphy's doughnut (any); and water.

Yeah, it's great.

The sizzling calamari I mentioned in another thread is a good start.

Pizza.

Above all else, lobster.

For drinks, Pepsi and Vanilla Coke are my poison.

Oh, yes, my other favourite food is my scrambled eggs for breakfast at my favourite cafe (across the road from work). But I don't get in early enough for breakfast too often [Wink]

Mock duck, Mock duck, Mock duck... for breakfast, lunch, dinner, merienda, late night fast breaks, snacking at work, while jogging, reading, playing jai lai, or relaxing. Mock duck anytime anywhere. It's probably even good intraveneously.

Any Thai restaurant would have it. It goes with absolutely anything.

Yum.

My sister-in-law's homemade Pound Cake.

My parents just came back from visiting them in the Cameroons and brought me one back [Big Grin]

I am going into hiding until it is finished, like tonight.

A nice bowl of Chana Dhal from Noori's in Brighton. Very simple, and freakin' yummy. Failing that, basically anything originating from Nepal to Kerala. [Smile]

Umm, I like anything without meat or meat flavoring.

My big comfort foods are key lime yogurt and this really delicious bread my mom makes (and taught me to make). Yes, I eat yogurt as comfort food. Shut up.

I also like baked polenta with swiss chard and creamed spinach over rice (but not necessarily at the same meal!).

I can't imagine a vegetarian life.

*shudder* I need my steaks. I need my ribs. I need my chicken. My fish. My bacon.

You need your chicken? I hope you don't end up like spungo - I understand those things can have a bit o'sickies in them. Well, if it ever gives you trouble, I suppose you can choke it.

Two little maxims from the introduction to Elizabeth David's French Provincial Food

The author of the Larousse Gastronomique "Successful cooking occurs when things taste of what they are"

Escoffier (the star chef of his time) "Faites simple!"

That's it - good simple honest food, the type you can return to time and again an never tire of. Do not however confuse simple with easy. These things take care to do well. Good bacon with fresh eggs skillfully prepared, or home made bread, or a really good roast chicken with home grown vegetables. All these things of course taste even better if you can share them around the table with some good conversation and good company and perhaps a bottle of wine.

These things have given me some of the best times in my life.

Well said Cally

I love to cook a "full monty English" (bacon, eggs, sausages, black pudding slices, hash browns (bought - I can make them but it's a lot of work), with stir fried onions, mushrooms, celery, garlic and mangetout (also possibly peppers, tomatoes (tinned or fresh), beansprouts, cabbage, cauliflower) depending on whether I go for "english", "chinese", "indian" or "italian" style veg [deliberate lower casing]

I also love to cook a really nice roast - any good meat well treated and served with nicely treated veg and a really good gravy... (I often judge restaurants not on their main dishes but by their veg... A good restaurant doesn't treat the veg and potatoes as "something to fill up the plate..."

Personally I steam all my veg over herbed stock and then use about 50% of that to add to the gravy...

OOeerr, I think I might be inadvertantly threadjacking...

It's late now and time for bed...

TTFN all

Cooking a fried breakfast while 'full monty' is a really bad idea.

I'd like to second that, 'Druid. Hot surfaces and sharp objects; cabinet doors, drawers -ugh! All of that spells disaster for the person decked out in 'full Monty' gear.
Apart from that - seafood- any kind of shellfish: Lobster, crab, shrimp, clams, oysters.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Favorite food? Anything edible that can be chewed without breaking all my teeth will do just fine. Favorite drink? Whatever feels like rough sandpaper down the throat and a hammer to the brain. I know this is really depressing, but I have a good reason for it. It's quite all right though - quoting the inscription on King Solomon's ring, "this too shall pass." I have no idea why I'm about to post this, but I suppose I'll post it nevertheless. Nothing to see here folks, move right along...

I think Druid is more thinking about how the hot oil spits out of the pan. [Eek!]

All of the above.

Plus of course, the risk of mistaking your watzit for a chicken [Eek!]
