Caffiene! Preferably coffee or soda, but I'll drink tea if I have to. Otherwise, I go into withdrawl around noon, and get a really nasty headache.

I have an addiction to seafood, especially shellfish. Last night, I had some crab at both work and home (crabcakes at work, snow crab at home). I usually try to get some kind of shrimp once every week or two. And, my DW and I usually get up to Red Lobster once or twice a year for birthdays, and I always get some form of lobster.

I'm also addicted to a lot of exotic cuisines, especially the spicy ones. I usually end up making some Cajun about once a month. I don't eat as much Chinese as I used to, as the Chinese restaurants up here are quite the same as back in OK. I may have to go back to cooking my own, as for the basic sauce, I like a combination of Soy, Oyster, Hoisin, whatever stock is appropriate for the meat cooked, some ginger, and lots of garlic.

Peace, Love, and Vegetable Rights!

Lately I have a thing for vegetables grilled and then drizzled with basilico vinegar.

Today I made a recipe from one of the River Cafe books. Grilled zucchini sprinkled with mint and slices of hot red pepper. it was sooo delicious. It is to be served as a bruschetta but i don't like the extra oil so I just served it on plain ciabatta.

I also like red and yellow peppers grilled with olive oil. Can't get enough of that stuff.

At least it is healthy as long as you don't use too much olive oil.

I was pretty hooked on Beer-can chicken for a while, but since the season changed and the grill is put away I got over it.

Now I am still working on that ham salad you guys helped me make.

There are a few foods I'd rather not have to live without, but the only one I'm truly addicted to is Diet 7Up. If I'm forced to go more than a day without it, I get headachy and out of sorts.

I'm definitely hooked on Mexican food. I love it home made, and I love good quality Mexican restaurant food, but I also go through regular Taco Bell cravings (when I was applying all over the country for jobs, I made sure there was a Taco Bell within driving distance of each place!). Ever since I found this great Japanese restaurant near us (well, 20 miles!), I have been hooked on that. And when I get a craving for prime rib, I can actually taste it!

My husband knows that once I get that prime rib craving, nothing will stop it until I get it!! The Saturday before Christmas we actually had some money when the prime rib craving hit me. We went to a place here in our town. Their prime rib isn't nearly as good as the places 20 miles from here, but my husband was tired. We sat down and ordered a couple ginger ales. Then we ordered our food. The server said that they only serve prime rib on Fridays! My face fell, and my husband said that we would go up to Monroe (NC) to Sagebrush. We got to Sagebrush and ordered a couple root beers. I started telling the server about what had just happened. She said, "I'm sorry, but we just ran out of prime rib!" She brought us our root beers anyway and said that if we decided to leave, we didn't have to pay for the drinks. I told my husband that I hated to make him drive all over creation looking for prime rib, but he said that we would try O'Charley's. We agreed that if O'Charley's was out of prime rib, we would go no farther. We left a tip for our waitress (for bringing the drinks and being understanding) then took off for O'Charley's. Fortunately, O'Charley's had prime rib, and my craving was quenched!

My 2 cups of hot tea every morning.....I can't go without them.....or should I say no one wants me to go without them because I'm not a morning person

Coke (Coca Cola)...........this saves me a work constantly when I need that surge of energy. Not that new product they've come out with either the one with less sugar.....ugh.....I grabbed this by mistake thinking it was a holiday label and after a few drinks I told middle son, "Somethings wrong with this Coke". He laughed of course and enlightened me :)

Oh yea....I'm sure some of you will cringe but look out when Mickey D's comes out with the McRib........its only around so long and I take full advantage of it. I don't know why but I love those things.
