What If... You Had an Endless Supply of Your Favorite Food?

My husband and I are self-proclaimed foodies – fond of a wide assortment of vittles and always willing to try something new. From sushi to nuts to barbecue chicken to fruits of every variety, there's almost nothing we won't taste at least once. Needless to say, then, it's hard to pick a favorite, but what if you had to?

What if you were granted an endless supply of your favorite food – and calories weren't an issue? If so, what would it be and why?

All authors and characters are welcome to answer this yummy question!

I have major problematic issues with gluten but I love the smell of bread when it's cooking. That's odd, right? :P
If this is only about foods I can actually eat then I'd have to say curry. Which kind of meat or even which combinations of spices I don't really fuss over. But it has to be fresh and hot like from one of the good vendors in the street markets near where I grew up.
It's good; it is good to remember the small stuff.
FION

Elaine says to stop torturing her already ;)

Laura Martone said...

I know what Elaine means, Fion. My characters seem to eat often - causing me endless amounts of pleasure or torture, depending on the moment.

In my fiction and travel writing, I seem to write about food a lot - not surprising, I suppose, given that I was born in New Orleans. That said, it would be hard for me to pick my favorite food, but I wouldn't mind an endless supply of one of these: cherries, nectarines, pecans, dark chocolate, raw oysters, sharp cheddar, oyster artichoke soup, key lime pie, lemon poppyseed muffins, or mojitos.

Yeah, it's safe to say that I'm a lifelong foodie.

Aidan said...

Um, I don't really care that much. Marc and Ginger cook and everything they cook is good. I don't really notice what it is, except I like Ginger's scones a lot.

Sometimes Marenya has to remind me to eat. But I get really busy!

Laura Martone said...

Darn it all! I knew I'd forgotten something... not surprisingly, I'm a big fan of scones, too. :-)

Kaelin said...

I think I might ask Ginger to make scones tomorrow for breakfast.

Aidan said...

You shut up, brat.

Little brothers suck. (Fortunately I can say that because he's too far away to kick my ass.)

Olivia Harper said...

Wow, Aidan, that was kind of hostile. I thought Kaelin's suggestion was pretty nice - or did I miss a bit of sarcasm?

Jil said...

Warm crusty French bread - Yumm! It's gone before I get it home from the store.
Crispy skinned baked potatoes slathered in butter.
And anything lemony.

Treats all of them or I'd be quite pudgy!

Aidan said...

That was him actually bragging cuz he's off with Ginger on their PRIVATE ISLAND and I won't see her for a week. So, no scones for me.

Kaelin said...

Oh yes. And things do suck for you on your yacht.

You have a chef. Put him to work.

Aidan said...

It's not the same. (sigh)

Olivia Harper said...

See, Aidan, this is why I'm always in the dark. Since I never get to read about your adventures anymore, I had no clue that Kaelin was alone on an island with Ginger, whose scones would be only for him.

What a bummer. I was really looking forward to one of her scones tomorrow morning. Thanks a lot, Kaelin - maybe your brother's right, after all. You are kind of a brat. (Kidding, of course - I'll just have to make my own scones.) ;-)

Ginger said...

Hello! Considering that Kaelin's boss is trying to kill me, and that we never had a proper honeymoon, I think the island was rather a good idea.

I promise to back some scones as soon as we all get back to the estate, okay?

Ready for a swim, Kaelin?

Kaelin said...

A swim sounds good.

Ginger said...

Yeah, I don't know where my bikini is. Oh, it's probably on the beach where I left it. I don't need it anyway because we're ALONE.

Finally!

Christine Hardy said...

I love all kinds of food. I couldn't pick one kind.

Marenya said...

I love lobster. I never had it until Aidan took me to L. A. I could eat it every day.

Raynor said...

You don't want to know my favorite food.

Saxen said...

(laughs) No. You really don't.

Olivia Harper said...

I'm so jealous, Ginger. I'd love to go skinny-dipping in the daytime, but living on a popular vacation island has its drawbacks.

Laura Martone said...

Oh, Marenya, I LOVE lobster! But I'm with you, Christine - it would be hard to pick only one food. If an endless supply of one item, though, didn't exclude the chance to eat other things from time to time, then my hubby says he'd either want chocolate cake or boiled shrimp.

Jesse Littleton said...

Now, I'm REALLY curious about your favorite food, Raynor! I mean, how bad could it be?

Saxen said...

Some things are best left unsaid, Jesse.

His highness shouldn't have spoken at all. He's feeling quite cocky since we got to Egypt. More like his old self, I suspect.

Raynor said...

I prefer fresh meat in my alternate form, Jesse. Especially the entrails of my enemies.

Saxen said...

Raynor! You're ruining their appetites!

Raynor said...

He asked.

Jesse Littleton said...

Actually, Saxen, that doesn't really surprise me. And you're right, Raynor, I did ask.
