You Know You're a Foodie When...

Okay, maybe I'm wrong, but I consider someone to be a foodie when they have a real love and appreciation of good food, it doesn't mean you have to be a gourmet chef or anything (which I am not!) So, since we're all foodies, I thought it would be fun for everyone to leave a comment finishing this sentence to find out all the things we do to satiate our love of food. For instance:

You Know You're a Foodie When:

1. You go to Barnes and Nobles and spend most of your time in the cookbook section!

2. You stay up late at night thinking up new dishes you want to try.

3. You get excited when you find a new assortment of flavored oils that you've never even heard of (just the other day actually, lemon and lime flavored oils, awesome!)

What about you? The more comments the better, and I will post all of them in a few days! What do you do that makes you a foodie?

You know you're a foodie when you daydream about ways to soften butter quickly in a pinch.

You know you are a foodie when you have a cookbook stashed in your car at all times for that hour long childrens baseball practice, or for the wait at the doctors office..

When I cook up something for my blog I make a display plate for my husband and he cannot touch it until I photograph it first. He takes one look at his plate and says, "Oh, this must be for your blog!". I drive him nuts! I tell him one day I will be rich and famous for my fabulous recipes! He just laughs! :0)

...you lie in bed at night thinking of what you're going to eat and/or make the next day. And the day after that.

You know you're a foodie when you feel like "creating" in the kitchen is therapy!

Kristen said...

When you recall a holiday by the restaurants you visited, remember the dishes you ate and try to re-create them at home :o)

Read cookbooks instead of novels!!!

When you haunt used bookstores for cookbooks, find a new ingredient and dream up ways to use it and in my case - I put food in every play I write! (and sometimes even recipes) I don't know if I am turning out young actors or young chefs.

You know you're a foodie. When you are copying a recipe from a magazine you haven't seen while waiting at the Dr's office.

Michele said...

Just found your blog and I'm loving this post!

When a new supermarket opens in your area and the possibilities get you so excited!

When you read a cookbook cover to cover...the first time.

Foodies are always thinking about their next meal!

Debbie said...

LOL... You know you're a foodie when you go to bed and dream of food blogging. I dream of food blogging, not the man of my dreams, cuz he's lying next to me, but rather dreaming of what I can make to blog about.

Kathy said...

You know you're a foodie when you never have the same meal twice in several, several months!!!

Ingrid said...

Fun....You know you're a foodie when the first thing you do when going into a store is to see if they have a "kitchen" department & if they do it's the first place you check out for new stuff. :)
