Some people say that playing favorites is a bad thing. They are not my type of people. What I have below are completely random, but honest, food thoughts, which I must document, or they will be gone forever.
1) The Almond M&M’s I purchased at the 7-Eleven before sneaking them into the movie theater use a large font on their packaging, seizing a good amount of real estate to emphasize to us fatties that it’s “Sharing Size,” “2 Servings.” Of course I agree, so long as you’re sharing with your imaginary friend.
2) They were on sale, so I bought three flavors. I’d never tried them. Now, they have changed my dessert habit, creating a ritual. I have discovered love by way of Sea Salt Caramel Gelato by Talenti. It tastes exactly like a caramel chew, with that powdery hint that blooms in your mouth, just as you’ve discarded the crinkling plastic wrapper. Overall, I find caramel too sweet, and at first bite, this gelato might startle you. But come the second bite, particularly if it’s pricked with a chocolate covered caramel bomb, you will find your exhale, the relief that comes when your anticipation is indulged. The Coffee Chip flavor is a must for coffee ice cream fans. I just ate a spoonful, as I’m out of my sea salt lover, and I said aloud, “This is obscene.” The Caramel Cookie Crunch flavor was a favorite at my mother’s home, when I loaded her freezer with Cold Stone Creamery and Baskin’ Robbins. I am one sick, sick hedonist—who likes to share. Next, I will flirt with the sorbets.
3) I mentioned this recipe recently from Nigella Express and just needed to emphasize how good it is. In a restaurant, if you ordered this, they would charge $24 per entree. Make no mistake, this tastes as if you ordered it at a restaurant. And, it’s gluten-free, and it only uses items from your pantry (save for the salmon itself, and a few fresh scallions), and you need to make this tonight! It is sweet, so you might want to hold back if you’re a big fat chicken pussy.
The above, for the record, is not a photo of any part of a chicken.
