For my very first Thursday Thirteen meme, I have decided to list my thirteen favorite foods. Mmm. I hope you're hungry! Actually, I am quite hungry myself. But I've got some spaghetti squash in the oven, pasta waiting in the wings for the Best Husband Ever, and am ready to gnosh. Can you guess the first item on my list? That's a toughie . . . . And so, in no particular order (mostly, anyway), behold the thirteen foods I most like to fill my stomach with.
  1. Muffins! Especially muffins with bran and/or fruit in them.
  2. Salad. All kinds of salad, although my grandma's cabbage salad is my special favorite in this category.
  3. Enchiladas. Cheese-tastic!
  4. Pie. Special favorites are apple, pecan, and pumpkin. And I wouldn't be opposed to a combination of all three.
  5. Trail mix. It makes me want to climb mountains.
  6. Pizza. And it must be floppy, thin-crusted, grease-soaked Jersey-style pizza. Fancy gourmet pizza is good, but nothing beats a gooey slice of extra cheese or pepperoni or mushroom pizza from back east.
  7. Ice cream. A shout-out goes to cookie dough, Ben & Jerry's Phish Food, and just about anything with peanut butter, chocolate, and/or caramel. Mmm.
  8. Nachos. Preferably piled with sour cream, guacamole, salsa, and olives.
  9. Burritos. See #8 for garnish preferences. Have you spied a trend? Also, pumpkin burritos get an honorable mention, as do cheese quesadillas.
  10. Spaghetti. What can I say, I'm Italian! Half, anyway. Lasagna ain't bad, either, especially when my mom makes it.
  11. Waffles. Or pancakes. I'll take either, although I prefer Belgian waffles. Especially if its doused in pure maple syrup and fresh fruit.
  12. Huevos rancheros. Again, see #8. Artery-clogging and delicious.
  13. Chocolate. It had to be at least mentioned! The only chocolate that I dislike is Hershey's. I find it powdery and fake-tasting. But Reese's (peanut butter and chocolate!), Cadbury's (cream eggs!), chocolate chip cookies, plain old chips. . . yum!
