When having morning coffee you are dreaming of what's for dinner.
Just because someone tells you that you can't do something doesn't mean you have to listen.

I like that one as well. I went over to Wikipedia which is usually a great encyclopedia for subculture and surprisingly there is no entry so after this thread winds down I'll do a little research, feed it into word so my spelling dosnet end up too offensive and put one up myself.
My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.

foodie - When you smell it, see it, taste it, hear it cook, discuss it, read about it, buy it, touch it, your heart beats faster - foodie

that pretty much says it for us here. There is a wide line that separates those who live to eat and those who eat to live, personally it is more enjoyable in the former than the latter.

When you spend months in the garden with some seeds just to finally get some product you can use for a meal, you are a foodie.
Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!

How about if your reply when people say, "you are what you eat" is that you'd rather be a spectacular 7 course meal than a bowl of whole grain gruel?

When they say, "your body is a temple" your reply is that you worship at church, not in the mirror, and ... oh, by the way ... the ritual sacrifice at a temple was ... lamb. I'll take mine in great kabobs. Oh, no, maybe a rosemary-infused leg ... or ......
