Food Porn Meme

Smokey Mountain Breakdown: Food Porn Meme Friday ~ The Food Porn Meme

I just got tagged in my first meme!!! Huzzah!!! And by a long time lurking fan!! I feel like my wee little blog is all growed up!!

Initiated by Rosie, over at Smokey Mountain Breakdown.

"she is a writer of Southern Gothic fiction and erstwhile keeper of goats. I'm laying the blame for the following nonsense squarely at her feet! Food Porn she has requested, and food porn she shall get."

from Kazari over at "I think I have a recipe for that."

So, thanks to my tagger, Silver Moon Dragon, over at Dragon Musings, I present my answers!!

1. What food do you consider the best “date” food? In other words, what meal or food item do you think is sexiest to eat in the company of someone you would like to look sexy around?

Hmm... Well, there's "sexy" food, AND then there's date food. Things I consider a complete no-no on first dates are thinks like slurpy pastas and exploding souvies. If a snog is a possibility I avoid anything with garlic or onions. Furry once told me, early on, that he loved to watch me eat, as I do it with "gusto", but we've been together long enough that I get still get a shag, even if I've had the chilli garlic ginger onion bhaji's and he's gone the salad.

Sexy date food (as opposed to early on "I-might-get-a shag-or-at-least-a-snog" date food) is anything that makes you moan, anything that makes you dribble a bit of sauce and have to lick it off your chin.. or your forearm, anything that makes you sigh.

Eating with your hands is sexy. Getting messy is sexy (all those thought of cleaning each other up, hmm...), so I am voting for a cold, local Mornington Peninsula seafood platter, with various dipping sauces

2. What well-known person would you like to share a meal with—with or without clothing. (saying whether or not clothes are involved is optional).

I want to eat Bruny Bay oysters off Angeline Jolie's naked body. Johnny Depp, also nekkid, will be waiting in the wings, smeared with chocolates and studded with Red Hill organic strawberries, for dessert.

Is that sharing??

3. What does your perfect breakfast-in-bed look like? (Food AND the details, please. Candles? Music? Flowers? Hot tub? Dancing girls?)

The Age and the Australian Sunday papers, unlimited time to do the cryptic crossword, sourdough bread, toasted, 2 perfectly poached eggs, some smoked salmon, some crispy bacon, a grilled tommie or two, with a side of grilled organic filed 'shrooms, out Chez Fur on a winter's day. The rain is hammering on the tin roof, the house is warm and Furry's made the breakkie.

After completing said breakkie and crosswords, I roll over and go back to sleep

Not very porn-y, but hell, I am a working mother of 5.. this is about as luxurious as it gets!!

4. What do you consider the best application of whipped cream to be?

I don't DO whipped cream, except as an ingredient in ice cream or chocolate Cointreau mousse.

But if Johnny and/or Angelina turned up at the door, BEGGING me to lick it off, well... I guess I'd force myself.

(Hell, if Johnny or Angelina tuned up covered in someone else's snot, and begged me to lick it off, I'd do it!)

5. Oh-God-No, Biff, the yacht is sinking! You are sent to the galley to retrieve the food. What luxury food items do you snatch first? The champagne? The caviar? Smoked Salmon? Truffles? Chocolate? Or something else?

Biff, daw-link.. the yacht is sinking! Send a servant to the galley (cos I have no idea where such a place would even BE!) and grab the Jamon Iberica haunch, the 18 doz Bruny Bay oysters, the Iranian Special Reserve Beluga, the Monte Cristo No. 2 Cuban cigars, the kilo of Alba truffles!! Angelina, Johhny and I will meet you in the life boats!!

And I tag:

Gobbler (cos I reckon he's a bit of a naughty lad, and I'd like to see his answers)
Squishy (cos she's a mum of a blended family like me, and I reckon her answers would rock!)
Duncan (cos he's another dark horse, whom I suspect has a "naughty" side)
Possum chops (cos I'd like to get to know her better)

and in the spirit of my meme predecessors, someone I lurk at, but have never had any contact with:

Stone Soup (cos she's recently started snogging a cute Irish boy, and may have more to add....)

Thanks so much for picking this up! This is one of my favorite responses so far! Come to think of it, I would mind having a "sandwich" with Angelina and Johnny Depp myself.

Squishy said...

I accept the challenge.......Let the games begin you naughty little girl!

SilverMoon Dragon said...

Mmm, Angelina and Johnny sandwich...

This was a great response. And now that it's not the middle of the night after 4 nights with almost no sleep, I remember that you're a Melbourne girl like me, so I have no excuse not to be visiting all the yummy places you blog. Except of course the two toddlers screaming around my ankles and being 29 weeks pregnant.

Dromana's a bit far for me, since I don't drive, but I rather suspect I'll be in Geelong for my mother's birthday that weekend... pity, you'll just have to have fun without me ;)

Best date food
Well I reckon anything that you cook for someone who you lust/love is going to be good.
I have been very lucky that the woman in my life have loved me to feed them & it has probably convinced me that deep down that we all yearn to be nurtured.
I am so bad at the seduction game that any obvious attempt at sexy-food would be shot down like the lame duck that it is. I prefer just to let my cooking to the talking.
As to special food, I agree PG, anything that slurps, gurgles, smacks, slithers, schleps etc is a good thing, but only if you’re a desirable person. If I made half of those noises whilst eating in front of a prospective partner I’d still be a lonely geek with bad manners.

Famous person(s)
I confess, apple bobbing naked with Dawn French & Phillip Adams springs to mind quickly enough for the people in white coats to be scribbling busily at my answer! A long, languid lunch with Jodie Foster (Don’t panic, I’m not even John Hinkley lite) Ashley Judd, Helen Mirren & perhaps Abie Cornish could be nice!

Fave brekkie in bed.
Waking up late (it never happens) & re-exploring dreamily & leisurely, with my wife, the glorious & delirious times when we were once fused at the groin. Brekkie would be a nice bonus whatever it was, but make that a double serve of Boks bacon, our eggs, my sourdough, coffee, a stack of newspapers & some earmuffs.

Best application of whipped cream is as a itching remedy, especially if thinned out with some Anusol-I hope this helps?

Oh if the boat were sinking, the home brew kit, the vinegar mother, the sourdough starter, the Fowlers Vacola set, the salt, the bleach, heirloom seeds, matches & my trusty multi-tool.

You wanna what me!?

I may need instructions for this, I've never been tagged before. This is very new territory.

However, firstly, I have to get over the fantasies playing in my head with nekid Angelina's and Johnny's. Can I steal your answers, they sounds right up my alley.
