I wish I could stay away from all that stuff. I like dark meat, and love burgers although I'm trying to cut back. I love BBQ (hot links, chopped or sliced brisket, ribs, etc.). And I love ham, especially with glaze!

One thing I don't like that everyone thinks I'm crazy for is mashed potatoes and gravy! Just don't like them, and my wife thinks I'm insane. I don't know if its the consistency or what, but I can't eat mashed potatoes.

I agree with your wife!!!! LOL!!!!! I eat so much mashed potatoes that it's amazing that I haven't turned into a potato!!!


Starches are my weakness. Potatoes, breads, rice, and pasta. I'll take them over sweets any day!!!

I'm with you on the bread and pasta. And I enjoy a baked potato every now and then, but not mashed. I actually don't eat much French fries, either, so I must just not be a huge potato fan. I mean, I like fries sometimes...especially thin, crispy ones, but don't like the big, thick steak fries.

Now, I do like sweet potatoes! My sister-in-law makes them on Thanksgiving (the kind with marshmallows and all that) and they are so good. Not sure what the difference between sweet potatoes and candied yams are, but she makes one of those.

I do not like the new Google maps! Used to be when you were going somewhere you could add in all the places you wanted to stop at , now you can only do the start and finish. Does me no good when we are planing to stop at 3 places in the Toronto area and only one of them can be entered into the map. Apparently lots of people are having a problem with this. Now I have to find a map where I can do that because I am so directionally impared! Anyone know of a good map I can do that with?
