Hamburger Helper cheeseburger macaroni. My college roommate introduced me to it. Yuck! And yet...yummmm.


Scrambled eggs with a huge spoonful of Cheez Whiz melted in to them.

Grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. So much better than PB&J toast, for some reason.

Meatloaf sandwiches with leftover meatloaf. On white Wonder bread, with mustard.

Mashed potatoes with a huge chunk of butter melting on top.


I'm with you on the Kraft Mac N Cheese — I still eat a box about once a month, usually on a night when there's not time to really cook or I have hardly any food in the house. It's delicious. I prefer the thick and creamy variety, and no, don't try to tell me that Annie's is just as good and better for you.

And McDonald's nuggets and fries still really hit the spot.

My best friend understands, but no, these are not things I can share with just anyone.


Rice with butter and salt and pepper or made with chicken broth or macaroni and tomatoes. My mouth is watering now.


White bread (not too fresh), dipped in a mixture of milk, white sugar & cinnamon and then fried in butter until golden brown. My Mom made this for me as both as a kid and adult. That was love on a plate for me!


I can't make up my mind....

1) Leftover white rice with sugar and milk the next morning for breakfast

2) water glass cut buttermilk biscuits (w/o baking soda... just flour, buttermilk, & oil baked in an iron skillet with oil drizzled and spread around using a biscuit) hot out of the oven & broiler (used to brown the top for 10 seconds or so) with Cracker Barrel sharp cheddar cheese, or butter, or honey

3)Cheese toast (soft white bread with American cheese melted under the broiler until it bubbled just a bit) Side note: Young brother caught the kitchen curtains on fire trying to make cheese toast alone by putting the bread and cheese in the toaster.

4) Nachos with Velveeta cheese dip along with 7-Up over ice. (Dump 1 block of velveeta & 1 can of Rotel diced tomatoes and chiles together and melt -- on the stovetop or in the microwave in a glass bowl)

5) Pear salad (Same little brother called me for her recipe a few years after she died. It's: Open a can of pear halves, place one pear half on a each lettuce leaf, add large spoonful of Best Foods mayonnaise, grate cheddar cheese on top, serve.)

I'm sure there are others too... but these popped out of my head first. Mamma made really good biscuits.

P.S., Oh, and boiled (salted and in the shell) green peanuts bought at a roadside stand where they boiled them up in a barrel and gave them to you wet in a paper sack.

(I show my southern roots with these choices.)


P.S.S. Now I am hungry. I'll go eat some cherries or watermelon instead of any of these.

Oh, I hear you! I also work/study from home and struggle with having access to all the food. My other issue is that I am much better at preparing tasty and healthy dishes for others. Which is how I end up eating four individual bags of chips for lunch. Or pepperoni. Ugh.

My all-time favorites, though? Bologna on white bread with mayonnaise. When my husband goes on business trips it's nuggets for the kids and sandwiches for me.

Also? Crepes. Not fancy, just with butter and sugar, but yummmmmmm....


2 hotdogs, split and fried in butter, made into a sandwich on white bread with American cheese, sweet relish, and ketchup. I never, almost ever, eat any of those things anymore, but every now and then, in a blue moon when no one is home to judge me (ha!) I'll have it for dinner. I always have to go to the store to purchase this stuff, though, so it's always a premeditated crime. And I love every last bite!

Also...peanut butter and jelly with butter and Fritos, all in between 2 slices of white bread, including the Fritos.
