WHAT’S YOUR EATING PLEASURE?


When I was in high school, my friend James and I would clip the “buy a dozen donuts and get a dozen free” coupons from the local paper. During our afternoon class we’d make a flying trip to Duncan Donuts, split the cost of the first dozen and get the second dozen free. By the time we were pulling back into the high school parking lot, I’d be polishing off the last of my dozen donuts, and James would be doing the same to his dozen. I could easily eat a dozen donuts in about 10 minutes. Boy, those were the good old days. In fact, I think I could still polish off a dozen today.

Times have changed in my life. I have to be careful about what I eat. Donuts are not on my menu, nor is whole milk, the thing that goes perfect with a donut. But someday, someday in heaven I plan to eat my weight in donuts and whole milk… every day :) They are by far my most favorite guilty pleasure.
What’s your weakness or guilty eating pleasure?

    pizza, pasta….and Halloween Candy….can't have any of it right now…..

  3. Jeff Slater says:

    Hostess Apple Pies. But they have 400 calories, so I TRY to stay away from them.

  4. That Girl says:

    Dolly Madison cruch donuts at the convenience store. Oh, and ice cream.

  5. Tim Archer says:

    Breakfast foods can do it to me. The unhealthier the better: sausage and gravy, hashed browns, eggs.

    After teaching on Ecclesiastes this week, I'm ready to eat, drink and be merry.

    “A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?” (Ecclesiastes 2:24-25)

    Grace and peace,
    Tim Archer

    1. Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream.

    2. Large bags of salty, greasy potato chips

  7. Marty says:

    1. Coldstone Icecream. Oh, you guys from the south have no idea what I'm talking about. Trust me, it's amazing.

    2. Donuts, just like the picture above. I still haven't had breakfast today @ 10:35 and that donut picture is sheer torture to look at. :)

    For me, any kind of restaurant food is my guilty pleasure. I would much rather eat out than eat at home. Reminds me of your "no secrets in marriage" post: I used to hide restaurant receipts from my wife.

  9. TREY MORGAN says:

    This is all making me hungry :)

  10. Stoogelover says:

    In order not to have food weaknesses, I embrace sugar. Anything with sugar. I believe manna was actually donuts and that the tree of life in heaven will yeild all things chocolate.

  11. Gary says:

    For me it's good catfish and hushpuppies. I lived from K-7th grade in east Texas. These west Texas round things aren't hushpuppies, they get too done on the outside and are doughy on the inside. The proper way is cylindrical so they cook propper through and through and end to end. A few years ago we had to back to east Texas and visited a favorite joint, I must have ate a dozen before the fish came to the table. Hopefully for their sake, observant Jews don't know what they are missing and can't have.

  12. L.C.T. says:

    Chocolate. Full stop.

  13. Deb ;) says:

    Riesen Caramels!! I could eat a whole bag!

  14. nb says:

    Symphony candy bars, lemon meringue pie, blackberry cobbler, chocolate anything, food.

    I think I gained five pounds just thinking about it. Thanks a lot, Trey! 😉

    I love donuts, milk, icecream, DQ blizzards, pies, nuts, popcorn with butter, hot rolls, butter, Scrumdillicious Pie. On and on I could go. But can't have everything I like. I don't get as much "of the milk of the word as I should." It is wonderful and sweeter to the taste than honey.

  16. Jeremiah says:

    My teeth can't handle to sweets. But when I get to heaven I am hoping that it looks like a 1940's Hansel and Gretel style cartoon…sweets everywhere from the houses to the trees!!!!!

  17. e3 says:

    Jeremiah, you just described a scene from Willy Wonka. If that's so, then, as a professed candy addict, I'm gonna love heaven.

    I just finished off a bowl of my Dad's beef stew.. I could eat that stuff forever and ever. Though sweets are amazing, especially a god abtch of brownies or cookie dough. Yummm :)
