Would you call a cheeseburger a quarter?

What's your mushroom of choice?

Yum, I would love to get that recipe. My favorites are oyster and chanterelles but I have only ever eaten them freshly foraged. I live in the pacific northwest and they are everywhere, if you know when and where to search. So fun, like digging for delicious gold (:

What's your mushroom of choice?

Ah, just crossed my mind. That fun mushroom that is bound to be referred to in 5...4...3...

Emily, you are just as charming as your fiance (plus, between you and me, quite prettier). That was really entertaining, you really should write more for SE.

Tipping for Carry Out?

I don't understand why someone wouldn't tip at least a buck for carry-out. It's never crossed my mind not to. It is a sign of appreciation and when a restaurant is slammed, packing up a to-go order takes more effort and attention than you might think. Anyway, the way I see it is that it's a simple way to say thank you. And those are nice to both give and get, no matter what the situation.

The Great Birthday Eats Conundrum

I want sushi and a lot of it. Actually, that's all I ever want. Especially unagi...heck, if someone else is paying then I'll eat the whole damn eel to myself, happy freaking birthday!

Nutritional yeast: help! I can't get enough.

Hmm, well I definitely eat my share of protein be it meat, seafood, legumes, soy, whatnot. I'm sure my diet could be lacking in some sort of vitamin/nutrient as any usually is, but I'm not too worried about it. I wouldn't say I actually crave nutritional yeast, maybe addicted was too strong a word? I just think it tastes super good. I'm pretty sure it's the whole umami effect...I love Accent sprinkled on popcorn too (:

The Times They are A-Changin'

Maybe I'm getting the wrong impression, but your posts come across as really judgemental.
It's ironic that you quote "why so serious?" when you took @starving student's initial post so seriously offensive. I'm hesitant to say this because I don't doubt that you're going to lay into me...but jeez, lighten up. You make me nervous.

Could you OD on your favorite food?

I OD'd on tequila last night, does that count?

Favorite popcorn toppings?

Omg, nutritional yeast. Seriously, it's like topping your popcorn with msg. Speaking of, I have done that too. That little shaker of Accent in my parents' cupboard? It turned my popcorn into crack.

Umm guys, I'm sure the girl is just wearing a very short skirt/shorts/dress with boots. The top of the picture cuts it off, why is that weird?

Although perhaps a hot fudge tasting accompanied by nudity would make sense after all...
