Confession is good for your forum soul. Share and be relieved!

I like that Good N Plenty Candy. I wouldn't buy it with my own money but I will eat it if someone is giving it away.

I once ate a 5 lb bag of Cadbury mini eggs within a week.
They are no longer allowed in the house.

At one point this winter, I had 10 boxes of Trader Joe's Mini Gingerbread Men stocked in my pantry...unfortunately they are all gone now.

Okay, if you say so. Hmmm, where to begin...

(Those of delicate sensibilities or weak constitution may want to take this moment to pour themselves a strong drink, spark up a fattie, or do whatever they feel will best help them to metaphorically gird their loins against my confession)

I genuinely like Chef Boy-Ar-Dee Ravioli better than the real stuff I've had in nice restaurants.

What, you thought I was gonna tell any of the really juicy stuff about myself? Ha-ha, not likely!

One of my favorite treats is composed of 1 can of Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli and 1 can of Chef Boyardee "Big" Beefaroni mixed in a non-stick pan over medium heat.

Kroger brand corned beef hash in a skillet with four little holes where the eggs fry.

Maybe three times a year though I usually keep a can in the pantry just in case I need it.

Our kitchen is pretty small so our pantry is an old wardrobe cabinet. Mice patrol the bottom drawers so only cans can go down there.

My sense of smell is so poor that I have happily eaten leftovers that Paul would have thrown out. Expensive food is wasted on me.

So of course I do most of the cooking in my house.

My mom used to buy Vienna sausage when I was a kid in the 50s. I still crave them, though I haven’t eaten one in about three years. Every time I do, I feel icky, but the craving lives on.

I do feel privileged. Down here, for a lot of people Vienna sausages, potted meat, squirt cheese, etc. (basically anything gross but yummy that requires no refrigeration) fall under the category of "Fishin' Food", things you're only allowed to eat guilt-free while you're out fishing. I suspect a lot of people have bought a cheap rod & reel and some other fishing accoutrement just so they'll have an excuse to eat gross foods occasionally free of judgement in a lakeside or riverside wilderness setting.

Same here! The drier baked goods get, the better they are for dunking in coffee and the less likely they are to get messy goo such as icing all over your fingers. Unless and until they start growing little green afros, they're still fine in my book.

It has been tried. Catfish will bite on literally anything, but according to my sources other fish were not tempted.

when my body was more forgiving, my buddy and I made a tour of the downtown cappuccino and pastry shops. We hit half a dozen in a few hours. I was hallucinating all the way home.
I swore off caffeine and sweets until the next morning.

Entenmann's Plain Soft'ees Donuts.

But only after I re-bake them @ 200F for 15-minutes in the Convection TO.
Firms them up & they lose that 'saturated with oil' feel and taste. Better dunking!
I've also heard but never tried they can be sliced and grilled like french toast.

That's the beauty of time and the clear perspective it gives: You can look back at a thing that you loved or hated at some point for reasons not related to the thing itself and evaluate it's overall merit in a much more unbiased way.

Though I was never a fan by any means, I will easily admit that Kiss did have a few good songs which have since stood the test of time.

Now try listening to few disco songs with an unbiased ear. If nothing else, the quality of production on some of them will blow you away, especially if you're hearing them for the first time through headphones at a reasonable volume instead of in a bar with horrible acoustics, a crappy sound system, and the volume cranked to 11 to compensate.

A buddy and I once painted our school name and year on the local water tower. Actually, he did the painting because I got only so high up the tower before my fear of heights stopped me. The local newspaper reported the vandalism did $300 in damages. We did not brag to other kids about our vandalism. That was in 1965.

Okie-dokie then. Well, in the spirit of "Is he serious or not...?", here's Puddles The Clown performing Folsom Prison Blues ("I shot a man in Reno...") to the tune of Pinball Wizard- [www.youtube.com]

In the interest of completeness, here's Puddles singing Pinball Wizard to the tune of Folsom Prison Blues- [www.youtube.com]

And here's another confession of mine: I wonder if Puddles does requests, and if so would he perform the theme song from Gilligan's Island to the tune of House Of The Rising Sun?

It has been a long time since my last confession, so I'll unload on you.

Chef-boy-ar-dee Speghettio's at room temp, straight from the can. Reminds me of hiking in the Smokie Mountains as a teen, that was a go-to lunch.

Still a weakness from college munchie time -- Tostino Party Pizza, microwaved for 5 minutes, then in the freezer for a minute, rolled like a taquito.

Little Debbie Oatmeal Pies

Banana and Mayo sandwiches

Fruitcake

That's enough for now.

You're talkin' my language, buddy. The best thing about Chef Boy-Ar-Dee products is that they're not much different flavor-wise at room temperature than they are when heated.

I have actually listened to some of that old disco, and it's nowhere near as horrible as I used to think it was.

I got into the music biz at the intersection of punk & disco in Manhattan.
I hated both at first.
I quickly learned to like punk coz it had rnr roots.
And not long after, disco too, coz of it's R&B & funk roots.
Plus, every session I was on was one or the other.
Some of the bigger disco hits were very well done. Great players.

But I wouldn't buy a disco LP either. I have lots of punk.
