Food Obsessions

Hellllooooo Ocean Dreamers...warning, if you are on a diet or are trying to avoid yummy foods, you just might want to ignore this post.

But...you have a girl who is currently going through PMS and craving everything there is that is remotely yummy, so food is on my mind.

My concert last night {Ingrid Michaelson} was probably the best concert I have ever been too, seriously. This red haired beauty was down to earth, lovely, and has such a great sense of humor! I highly encourage you to watch her in concert if she will be performing in your area, you don't want to miss out! I will be posting pictures from her concert shortly, I was only 8 feet away from her!

So I have a minor food obsession and the following foods happen to be my favorite.

Let me introduce you to these fine foods...



Avocado egg rolls are my biggest obsession right now. My favorite in particular come from BJ's, followed by Claim Jumper. Yuuuum!


Ohhh and another lovely food item that comes from my avocado addiction = guacamole! By the way, I never used to like avocados growing up. I guess this is proof that our taste buds change through the years!


One more avocado themed food item...the caterpillar roll and sushi in general. I. AM. OBSESSED. WITH. SUSHI!!!!!


Moving on to chocolate...in particular chocolate covered gummy bears. Yes, I know I might be mad but this is my favorite snack ever!


Have you ever heard of a pazookie? This has got to be the best dessert ever. It is at BJ's and it a warm cookie with vanilla ice cream. It took me two years to have Big Kiddo try it and once he did he was so addicted!


Ferrero Rocher chocolates. Big Kiddo got me this entire box for one of my birthday presents, they are soooo good and I am not that big on chocolates.


Veggie sticks from Trader Joes. They are somewhat healthy and give me the salt kick that I desperately need on days like this. I stayed up late eating them last night, don't tell!


Another salty snack you might ask? Well, you might try these delicious baked cheddar and sour cream chips. Which by the way I am not supposed to eat. I am a lactard and am not supposed to eat dairy, oops! :P


A favorite dish you can't resist? Chicken tikka marsala. I am such a goner for Indian food.

Okay...so now that I have dished (ha ha literally) what are your favorite foods and snacks? Oh great, now I am probably going to want to try your suggestions.

Oh well...as long as I run extra miles this week, right?!

Have a yummy Monday. Don't forget to grab yourself a snack! ;)

XOXO,

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hmm love the Avacado Egg Rolls at BJ's and Deep Fried pickles at Hooters

    Salty - Salt and Vinegar Chips and Pringles Dill Pickle Extreme flavor

    Cookies - I am totally addicted to Ginger Snaps of any kind, but there are these thin cookies at Costco with Chocolate on one side I like too.

    Chocolate - I love Dark chocolate and generally avoid milk chocolate, The Darker the better. However, I have a recent affinity for Junior Mints and Chocolate covered altoids.

    Finally A good steak dinner ...with a healthy side of steamed veggies , a nice Cabernet to go with that. Finish it off with a smoky single malt 15-18 year old Scotch served neat with Creme Brulee for dessert! mmmmm

  32. OH! How fantastic is this little bit of heaven. I'm suppose to be on a diet, but hmmm...I guess I am being lazy.

    I love some avocados! Sounds so good, I am now going to go to the grocery tomorrow!

    I have never heard of chocolate covered gummy bears! Sounds great!

    Double yum!

  33. ohmygoodness!! you MUST tell me where to get chocolate covered gummy bears!! my two favorite food groups!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I too didn't like avocados until college, and then I was like, how did I life my life without them?! Also, Pazooki = not ok how good it is (I like to get half choc chip, half white choc chip). You know what is awesome are those white chocolate covered oreos that come out during Christmastime. Oh no, I'm spiraling out of control!
