food porn

wikipedia defines a foodie as "Foodie is an informal term for a particular class of aficionado of food and drink. The word was coined in 1981 by Paul Levy and Ann Barr, who used it in the title of their 1984 book The Official Foodie Handbook."

for those of you who know michael and I, you know that we are big foodies.  last week, I was in urban outfitters and I saw this book called porn for women that had things like pictures of men vacuming and bringing breakfast in bed.  this got me thinking about the things that I see that are like porn to us because we are foodies, so here is what I came up with:

1. watching them make crepes at jean phillipe in las vegas
2. watching bread rise
3. a bowl of my chicken matzo ball soup
4. hot biscuits just out of the oven, brushing melted butter over the top
5. pork ribs or pork shoulder when you unwrap it off the grill
6. chicken wings basted with sauce on the grill, with flames flaring up to scorch them
7. pouring the icing on mexican chocolate cake
8. slicing into a prime rib roast
9. spooning out divinity at christmas
10. the first spoonful of corn casserole
