    Now why the hell am I craving Ritz Bits? I'm craving them so badly that I'm thinking of getting dressed, putting the dogs in the car, driving down to the all-night convenience store and buying some to take home and eat right now. This obsession with Ritz Bits, and not the peanut butter ones either, started yesterday and I can't figure out why I'm getting these. I had another craving a few months ago involving herring. Could it be salt?

    I feel like I'm pregnant.

    Why did you have to bring up the herring? Now I've got the craving.

    The other day I got a mad craving for pizza and spent way too much money I don't really have to get a pizza delivered (part of that was that I also had the flu and didn't feel like going anywhere).

    I often get cravings for gyros - my favorite food! Fortunately I live down the road from a Greek restaurant. (I don't have them all the time though, mostly because of the expense. Plus if I had them all the time, it'd spoil how special a treat they are!)

    I also get cravings for meatloaf but I can't stand to look at or touch raw meat, so I have to eat it at a restaurant, and there's a restaurant here that has meatloaf as their special but only on Mondays. And I get cravings for Sloppy Joes too but haven't had them in years because I can't stand to look at or touch raw meat, and haven't found a restaurant that serves them.

    Of course, not having a lot of money, I try to keep all this under control so I don't spend even more money to feed my cravings!

    Well I gave in and bought two bags of Ritz Bits at the convenience store. For whatever reason they hit the spot and now I don't crave them.

    I have been craving lamb gyros myself and not sure why. Good ones are amazing, I'll agree with you right there.

    I had one for lunch yesterday. I had been craving them, too, so I indulged.

    Yesterday, I baked a really good meatloaf using MANWICH Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce. It was really delicious.

    If you are squemish about touching raw meat...you can use food grade gloves. That is what I do sometimes when mixing ground meat for meatloaves.

    I get a craving for a big juicy hamburger every once in a while as I don't eat red meat very often.

    I love a good meatloaf. I use an old Paul Prudhomme recipe that is great. I would be interested in how to use make yours using Manwich sauce.

    I crave Mexican food all the time. It must be a recessive Latin gene in me somewhere, or the inclination for that kind of food comes from a past life. I have no idea. Always washed down with a Mojito with fresh oranges and honey in the mix.

    I also crave Red beans and rice, cooked with a nice smoked ham hock for seasoning from time to time.

    My blood boils when I don't consume Kettle chips: Thai Spice or Backyard BBQ chips at least once a month.

    and finally...Peanut butter cookies. Heaven.

    Is that why you were snarfing down Ritz crackers and smoked gouda on my couch when I walked in tonight?

    THAT wasn't me. It was Sally Struthers. I neither eat Ritz crackers nor smoked gouda. :smile:
