Foodie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Gives an all around description. I think all of us fall into it.

That's awesome, if you're able to find out--Thanks! :)

I'm a foodie and a roadie, as my signature below suggests...

At my work, I suppose I'm considered a foodie, when the sales department has a recipe with an ingredient they don't recognize, they call me and mascarade that they have a 'help desk ticket'...to ask me what a 'leek' is and where to buy them. I send them a picture and they say 'oh a green onion' and then I have to explain that they are not green onions and they can buy them at all the local grocery stores. And don't eat the green part. They've never heard of them before.
I admit I've purchased every type of produce available, just because it's something new. I talk food everyday with my closet foodie friends. If I don't talk about food, it's because I'm sick, then I talk about not being hungry.
I'm guilty.

LOL! My nurses aides and I talk about food all the time. I should have known we weren't feeling well when Sunday night we didn't discuss food at all and what we did eat didn't smell good. Now I wonder if he had the same problem I did by Monday...stomach flu!

Thank you for the response! I won't be using artichokes for sure, I've never really liked them... Something about them, the way they look... I don't know if I've ever eaten one before though, strange..

The exterior of an artichoke does look strange, but you don't eat that anyway. There is a bit of the leaves that you can scrape off and eat, but the prize is the heart. When you are at a restaurant you can see if they have anything with artichoke in it and you can try it. If you don't then just push it to the side. I love it though!
