    What food do you seem to always have a craving for? For me it's probably Chinese food, I have to get it atleast once a week or I have withdrawl.

    I just got an ice cream maker as a wedding present. I'll have to try it out....maybe I'll try the hot sauce too while I'm at it and just tell everyone it's vanilla/strawberry swirl :)

    Indian food. There's so many different varieties and flavors, yet you can still classify it as "Indian food" because there really isn't another culture-specific food that tastes anything like it. I prefer going to restaurants, but for my everyday meals, I make pre-pouched heat-and-eat Indian meals. I've done 90% of my grocery shopping for the last three or four months online, buying microvable Indian meals. I eat about 10 packages a week. They're also all natural, and if you don't count the sodium (and maybe the fat if you need a low fat diet), they're all very good for you.

    Tabasco sauce. I'll eat darn near anything if I can have Tabasco on it. It's not even hot anymore, I just use it instead of ketchup on something.

    Generally I don't like hot things, but I do find myself putting hot sauce on food for no particular reason. Like my taste buds and brain want it but I don't know why. I especially like it on pork fried rice (again back to the chinese food) :)

    Jazzin' ...Bluesin' and Funkin'

    Poutine has to be the most addictive food. It's also very unhealthy. After that, comes hummus with pita, and then persian style food.
     
  14. Pizza, chinese food, and Subway. Pizza is so addictive I could eat it anytime... at any meal. I only eat chinese food once in a while, so it's one of those rare occasion things... won ton soup is incredible. And finally, I eat Subway twice a week and I couldn't have it any other way.

    I'm also getting addicted to Big Macs and other Mcdonald's foods. I went to Mcdonalds about 3 times in 5 years or so but now I'm starting to go often, and it's so delicious (even though I always feel a bit sick afterwards).

    Specific food item? Oreos: including Trader joe's brand 'joe-joes' (in particular the peanut butter/chocolate ones and the ginger ones) I'll go through a box of oreos in 3 days, sometimes less.

    Type of food... Probably middle eastern food. I say that with kind of a broad brush because I really do like a lot of middle eastern food, for many of the same dishes, but it seems like every country has their own spin to the common ingredients used.

    Though, to single out a country, Greek food is great.

    I've been making chicken enchiladas at home recently, somehow I always have a craving for them, though I often lack the proper ingredients.

  19. i too love chinese food. but it's chicken wings that do it for me. :D
     
  20. but

    Chicken Shawarma, Chicken Pad Tai (I'm sure that's spelled wrong), and peanut M&M's do it for me lately.

    Runner up (super close): 5 alarm steak chili. Just hot enough to make you sweat.
