Question Of The Day


I'm so grateful I don't have much of a sweet tooth, especially at this period in my life. My metabolism has gone on a very extended vacation since the menopausal years kicked in and all those treats just go straight to my hips and thighs.

However, there are two things I love LoVE LOVE:

Ice cream.  Chocolate chip, heavenly hash, cookies and cream, butter pecan, cookie dough, vanilla and chocolate. Just to name a few flavours.

And cheesecake. New York style. None of that caramel, chocolate, fudge, lemon or lime type nonsense added in. Just regular, simple cheesecake with a fruit topping. Preferably strawberries or raspberries, but all fruit is welcome. Mmm...mmm...

My birthday cake last week. Sinfully delicious!

How about you? What two foods would you feast on?

  1. Oh my metabolism has changed so much as well... I have zero sweet tooth but I could eat Asian noodles all day every day. And fries...

    1. I am jumping onto another comment since I can't comment on my own. I would feast on bread, preferably yeast rolls. And cooking dough. Sugar cookie dough. :-)

    2. @Lois: We all (women) reach that point where our metabolism goes on vacation!

    3. @Tina: For some, the comment box doesn't show up properly. I've tried fixing it but can't zoom in on what the problem is. There are ways around it and I'll write up a post as soon as I can.

      Bread is something I love, too, but I don't eat much of it these days!

  2. Mmmm! Your birthday cheesecake looks delicious! Love the meme in your sidebar today, btw! I definitely feel that way sometimes--and wonder if companies and government agencies put me on hold so long in hopes I will give up and leave them alone. At least it really makes me appreciate companies with good customer service.

    I think I would eat lots and lots of chocolate if I could...unfortunately at this point I think it gives me acne, so I can only eat a little at any one time.

    For dish #2, I think I would pick my ex-neighbor Mr. K's turkey noodles, perhaps with mashed potatoes, or else my grandma's chili. I always get too full too fast eating those foods!

    1. That is my thinking, too; that we are put on hold for long periods of time until we're so tired of it we hang up! If it's important enough for me, I will stay online until I get things done. I can be very patient - or persistent - at times.

      Those must be very good noodles. I wonder if your ex-neighbour has a secret recipe. And chili is such a great dish. I haven't had that in years!

    1. I know what you mean about developing fat in places you never had it before, Betty! Ah, the perks of growing older :)

      Chocolate is a favourite for many. Wouldn't it be nice if it burned calories instead of packing them on.

  4. I hear ya about the metabolism girl. If I could feast on anything, it would be steak, lobster, mashed taters, bottles and bottles of vino (the expensive stuff), followed by copious amounts of chocolate.

    1. Pizza. The absolute best. Can't imagine this world without it :)
      And German chocolate. Now there's something I haven't had in...oh...forever.

  6. I never have to worry about any of those issues, I never have to count a single calorie

  7. Alas, I do have a sweet tooth. So I'd probably choose something like ooey-gooey cinnamon buns and banana splits or some damn thing. Plus I totally agree with you about cheesecake -- the only kind I really enjoy is New York cheesecake with CHERRY FILLING on top! Mmmmm, heaven.

    1. All deadly stuff, Debra! LOL... And cherry filling on top of a cheesecake...mmm...mmm!

  8. Dark chocolate....by itself or in anything!
    And I am with Debra (above) ooey-gooey and sticky cinnamon buns.
    Yep, these would be just fine by me.

    1. Another chocolate lover! And cinnamon buns are the best, Jim. My daughter actually makes them and they are the most delicious I've ever had.

  9. Chocolate mousse in any form drenched in chocolate sauce and shaved dark chocolate.

    I guess I love chocolate!

  10. chocolate for sure! But I love fried foods too, I really try to watch that.

    1. Fried foods are definitely something to watch. I stay FAR away from them.

  11. Well, for birthdays you're allowed to sin a bit. I'm an ice cream addict. I like the chocolate, butterscotch, carmel and plain old vanilla.

    1. Yes, we can sin a bit on birthdays :) You and I share the ice cream addiction. So I try not to have it in the house!

  12. How did I miss this? (Probably head down in a pint of Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia)

    So hard to make this call. I'm with you on cheesecake, just love, love, love it but if I get to eat all I want of two things, I'm going for really good, nachos with plenty of jalapenos and cilantro and a gallon or two of Cherry Garcia! Yay for Ben and Jerry!

    1. So much temptation in your comment, Toni! LOL... It's been ages since I had nachos. Thank goodness :)

  13. To be 100 percent honest ... I don't look at any of those things when I make a food choice. I look at will my body at this stage of healing and recovery, be able to absorb the food as proper fuel. Boring answer but at this stage in the game, there is nothing that I wish I could feast on. I'm just happy with a fuel-filled meal and the next day, a good poo.

      Tim and I were talking yesterday about what one food could you not live without. I couldn't name anything because at this point, I'm just like, take it. Just take it. If it's not working, it can go.

      What a difference being sick, makes.

    2. I can imagine. Being healthy is much more important. Foods can come and go.
