Guilty pleasures

I don't know about you folks but in our household we tend to relegate certain foods to certain occasions. One thing we do this to is onion wraps. It's just a thin slice of ham spread with cream cheese and wrapped around a green onion or a pickle and then cut into disks. We usually make these at the holidays but not really at any other time of year. But this year we didn't make them. So, this morning I made a couple of them and ate them all by myself for breakfast. Now there is no real reason not to make these throughout the year. They are cheap and easy to make but somehow they have become holiday food in our house. So I feel guilty making and eating them. Especially since I didn't share them with anyone. (Okay, I don't really feel so guilty but I'm not telling anyone about it either, so don't you tell.)

What's your guilty pleasure?

At the moment, my guilty pleasure is shortbread cookies.

Still enjoying my 'cache' of gingerbread men from Xmas and think I can make them last another couple of weeks!
Okay, "guilty pleasures"...and hasten to add strictly IMHO...a generation of brain-washing about 'politically-correct' eating, has made damn near anything we eat or consider eating a "guilty pleasure".
Have to confess I don't pay much attention to what I'm supposed to eat or not eat and FWIW, monitor my eating and work out 5 days a week as am vain enough to not want to appear like a balloon with ears!
So, your little snack sounds terrif, and think you should make it all year and not feel guilty about it!

One thing that cracked me up is last holiday season a friend wanted something light to munch while she was bouncing off the kitchen walls finishing her groaning board, then while I was carving. Hubby and I saw a tv show and thought, how perfect, how retro (it's an old fashioned meal). So I stuffed celery ribs, half with regular cream cheese sprinkled with herbs, half with pimento cheese spread. They were a huge hit, and were requested for the next holiday meal, and again for this last Christmas. Nothing like the flavors of childhood for holidays, I guess. The hostess who requests them says she has them for breakfast the next morning.

i love little smokies sausage wrapped in puff pastry. i usually save for christmas. well i only got a couple. so i am making just for myself , a whole pack. planning on munching on them for a couple of days. same with brie in puff pastry. it is usually laid out at parties. however i don't want to look like a pig so only have a slice. gonna make one for myself, will probably feel guilty eating these two goodies. that's ok, i have broad shoulders.

I can just hear that swell "fwoooop" sound as it goes from the upside down can into a waiting mouth. You're only guilty if someone catches you doing it.
