Those that know me, know that when it comes to food, I am basically a 'meat and potatoes' guy. Nevertheless, I do have my favourite foods:
- I think I have mentioned this before, my dad use to make what he called 'tuna pea wiggle'. White sauce with tuna and peas over toast, or a variation with chipped beef instead of tuna. Anyway, I have always liked that, but don't get much opportunity to enjoy it. When I tell people about it, they just look at me funny.
- Might as well include comfort foods, as well. Sometimes I have a hankering for crushed saltine crackers in a bowl with milk and sugar or bits of bread with the same. I think these were conjured up when there was no ready-to-eat cereal in the house.

There are many more foods and goodies that could be mentioned, but we all have favourite foods that can make us weak at the knees, in fact, I would love to hear yours if you can suffer through the gamit of posting a reply to me!
