on the plus side, I am getting my exercise in. on the negative side, I fall asleep by 8:30 at night and have not seen the evening news in years. I do get the news at the gym though. Where is Mark?

I'm rarely out of bed before 7 or 8 AM. In winter, that might be more like 8 or 8:30. I spent too many years getting up at 5:30 to get to school on time - I refuse to do that now that I'm retired. I hate waking up in the dark!

5 a.m. is no better. I don't take my daily synthroid until 6, if I'm on schedule, and unable to have even coffee until an hour has passed. It doesn't sound like much fun to sit in Gwyn's basement all that time without coffee. At least if I wait for the time to pass up in the kitchen, I can get a whiff of Gwyn's and her husband's coffee and make sure that they leave enough in the pot so that I don't have to make another pot when it's my time.

Ya hear that, Miz Gwyn???!!!!!

LOL Laurie and Gwyn - Although Laurie, 4 AM for Gwyn is 5 AM for you. Is that any better? (It would be 2 AM for me, I could just stay up until then. More likely to do that than get up at 4 AM.)

Sometimes I think I'm better off just not knowing too much about what might be in my food. I do the best I can, but, well, I have to separate my brain from knowing I need nutrition to knowing that this was once an animal, or a living plant, or whatever.

And Allison, I was in 11th grade eating an apple for lunch, at school. Visiting with a friend, hanging out in our favorite teacher's room. Big bite of apple, realized there was a half a worm in the apple. Yeah. The hardest thing was trying to decide whether to finish chewing the one bite, or rushing over to the garbage can to spit it out. But when I was in Peace Corps, well, sometimes bugs were in food. You picked them out and kept on eating. No other food available.

And Laurie, I'm with you about not doing anything at 4 AM except sleeping.

OMG I read Julia's comment about not all the parasites being killed in pork even with cooking and I almost lost my breakfast (which is weirdly a curried chicken salad sandwich). I do eat TURKEY bacon now because it is cheaper than vegan bacon where I shop and I suspect everywhere. I hope poor turkeys do not have indispensable parasites in them too!

All well and good, but there's a difference between not eating what you don't like and feeling creepy-crawly from some foods, such as the exploding cherry tomato. And I know your summer, daytime footwear.

When I joined SP, I decided my inner picky eater was going to become my filter or censor - if I don't really like or love the food, I don't have to eat it. It became an easy way to cut down on my eating. I don't have to eat starchy sides if I don't like them (and I often don't). I don't have to eat what Richard eats (because I don't like many of the items he eats). I get skip all kinds of things and only eat what I like - so I'm happier, and I'm eating less.

So yeah, being picky is a good thing!

And you should try shoe shopping with me, LOL!

Sun Chips Cheddar is one of my guilty pleasures!! The other Sun Chip flavors are ... eh... well... just okay. My son usually gets a sack when we get Subway sandwiches (his favorites). I rarely rarely get a bag just for myself, and for sure not to bring home because I will just inhale the entire bag. So ... we just get the small snack size or individual bags at restaurants.

Yes to Terra chips!!!!

I hate any flavored chip - but mostly because the taste is in some powder on the chip, and it tastes so fake to me! Plus if I breathe it in, it starts a whole asthma thing going that isn't fun. Besides, I like the taste of potatoes!!!

I loved Velveeta as a child - but mostly because I liked the texture better than the texture or smell of regular cheese like Swiss or something - cheese just had too much bounce in my mouth, and too many of them smelled horrible! I really was a picky eater as a child - polite, but picky.

Oh, I was actually a very good and polite little girl. I would not try one bite, one taste to see if I liked it but I'm sure I refused politely. I am trying to think of the right word ... the personality quirk (yes, another 'quirk' opportunity!) that saved me from tolerating the intolerable. Entitled? Assertive? hmmmm, at that time and place, those were not positive traits for a very good and polite little girl, and I annoyed some aunts and uncles.

I don't think I have tasted Velveeta. Just not a part of my world.

I was thinking Terra, too. Two votes carry it. I've tried them for the pretty bag and interesting-sounding contents, but didn't care for them after all.

There is another chip that I like and you have to promise not to tell anyone so as not to humiliate me -- Sun Chips Cheddar. They are horrid. As Cheese Doodles in childhood left the fingers coated with fake cheddar powder, these do. Horrid things and I like them. It may be that I haven't even tried the plain Sun Chips.

At least I don't like Velveeta. It wasn't on my mother's grocery list, so the only time I had it was at lunch in the home of relatives. I took one bite of the sandwich and felt as though I were being led to the guillotine. After the second bite, I declared that I wasn't hungry. That has to have been more than 60 years ago. Maybe Gail is correct and I really was a good, polite girl. Fie on goodness and politeness.

I ate Fritos as a child, but I much prefer unsalted tortilla chips - especially the blue corn ones! Though I also like the mixed root vegetable chips, that come in a black bag - don't remember the brand name.

I do try to avoid most of them - though our bagel spots in Tucson and here in Bellingham both serve a small bag of chips as a side with bagel sandwiches.

Malt vinegar, I hope.

Kettle chips are worse than plain ol' potato chips. They're so thick that biting them hurts my teeth.

I like some tortilla chips, including Tostitos. Once upon a time I liked Fritos corn chips, but it's been so many years since I've had them that I don't know if I'd still favor them.

I will admit that I love chips, and have to approach them with caution. First faves are the kettle chips, very lightly salted. Then the ridged chips. But absolutely no flavors - blech!!!!!

In New Zealand and Australia, we saw lamb and mint jelly flavored chips, or crisps as they call them. Sounds like a nightmare!!!

No chips on the side ever. Never ever!!! They are not food and never should be placed in proximity to food. Think of them the way someone who follows kosher law thinks of a glass of milk with a burger...or just a cheeseburger!!!!

No tuna casserole regardless of other ingredients, especially no chips!!! Never ever!!!! Learn to show some respect for fish!!!!

!!!!

Oh, yeah, before I forget. Ridged chips are probably slightly less horrid than flat chips. At least one gets respite from chip when one reaches the empty spaces created by the ridges.

Yuck, gross, and no way!!!!

The PLAIN brownies would be great. How about a BLT (on toasted whole wheat, and no mayo) with the ridged chips on the side, and a brownie for dessert??? That's as close as I'll get to the combination. No way would I mix brownies with anything salty. (And how can anyone eat ice cream with potato chips????????? ACK!!!!!)

I agree that chips also don't belong in tuna noodle casserole. (And the only one I ever ate was my mom's, which she doctored with sauteed onions, celery, and she added Velveeta to her cream of mushroom soup. Only elbow macaroni. She stopped making it by the time I was about 13.) It wasn't bad, but it was not exactly a favorite. Just a cheap meal she made while our dad was in college and the family was pretty broke.

As usual, the comments are funnier than the original article (recipe) - scrolling down below, to see if anyone shed any insight as to why it must be "ridged potato chips", I see this hilarious but true comment:

"I can't even imagine how much cholesterol and fat are in these heart attack brownies. Can you give the breakdown and how many calories?"

I'm like Sunny - won't do the pork, and there's additional health issues with all the parasites they have, which - even in spite of cooking thoroughly - doesn't always kill them all... But every once in awhile, I can find Beef Bacon. But just reading and seeing the brownies made my gut clutch, like I was reeling over from eating all that fat and sugar, as if I had actually eaten it!

I can eat ridged or plain potato chips, thick, thin, tend towards the salt or salt & vinegar sorts, occasionally will nibble on my son's BBQ (ewww) potato chips... and we love potato chips with our ice cream of any flavor (nom! nom!)... I can imagine it will taste good if it was made with beef bacon, but I'm just not gonna go make the stuff.

Pediatricians are just kid doctors, they know exactly squat about nutrition, same as cancer doctors. I have heard and read various places where doctors are trained with an average of only 3 hours discussion of nutrition. But in this case, I think they nailed it for you all. And hopefully you aren't making some for Thing 1 and Thing 2.

LOVE mushrooms!! Sauteed in BUTTER naturally.

Neanderthals had just as varied eating preferences as modern humans. Apparently, Belgian Neanderthals ate rhinoceros and wild sheep, while the Spanish Neanderthals diet was soley "mushrooms, pine nuts, and moss". Early vegans!

I LOVE brownies, but potato chips were not a thing at my house growing-up and i don't care for them. Even though I am currently reduced to eating meat (because I am eating 1/2 my monthly food from food pantires) I refuse to eat pork. Why--well not only is it "Jewish" not to eat pork, but those animals are more intelligent than dogs, and I won't eat dogs either.

The tuna noodle casserole I grew up with was Stouffers! I have a preference for it. Although last night I mixed Knorr's Pasta Sides Chicken Flavor Fettuccine with water, butter, 2 TB of shredded cheese, sliced cherry tomatoes and canned tuna and threw it in the microwave. It was too salty for my health concerns for a meal but TASTED delicious. I thought, this is my new Tuna Noodle Casserole!

I don't want no canned Cream of Nothin'! If I'm going to eat something like that, I'll choose school paste. No potato chips! No canned tuna! which I stopped eating several years ago because it had been seeming unpleasant for a long time. Alas, a childhood love thrown over.

Gail, as I read you notes on ridges and other matters, I was imagining the child you pouting and stamping her tiny foot.

That's another thing. For much of my life, an earlier segment of it, NYC's late, lamented Greek coffee shops never served potato chips on the plate with a sandwich. Tiny bags of chips were never placed in the bags for takeout. That was the norm in most other places, but not here. Maybe that's why I couldn't and still can't think of any chips as "food" to accompany food. Chips are a snack, not food. Imagine my consternation when, long ago, chips began to appear alongside sandwiches on my turf. I won't have it, I tell you! When I'm elected Queen, things will change.

No worries! I don't think those little cubes in the cream of mushroom soup are really mushrooms. And if it is a mushroom if it was reassembled then all those identical little cubes might be about a quarter chunk of one small mushroom.

More important! Why would anyone specify potato chips with ridges in any recipe? I'm talking about the corduroy-like chips shown in the picture. Distinctly different species than Ruffles.

It's a NO for me too.

Because the recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups lightly crushed potato chips with ridges. I don't want ridges in my potato chips.

I am a fan of the sweet/salty thing from way back. Nothing like a giant slice of birthday cake with that really thick artificially dyed frosting with one of the candy rose decorations and hap or bir written with gel in cursive topped with a scoop of vanilla and a scoop of chocolate (both please) and potato chips on the side of a color-coordinated paper plate. But only the plain old smooth potato chips. No ridges. Except for sour cream onion chips because they are best with ridges.

I liked tuna noodle casserole way back then. It had to be made with Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup and frozen green peas.

1996 was a good year for interviewing pediatricians. emoticon

I've seen tuna noodle casseroles with potato chips. Never knew the attraction. My comfort food is a tuna noodle casserole we make. Simple with noodles, cream of mushroom soup and american cheese (my mother used to throw peas in, but if I wanted vegetables, I'd eat a salad).

Bacon has been an ingredient in all sorts of things, including ice cream, for a good few years now. This recipe looks and sounds easy to skip. Beside, I don't much like potato chips. No temptation here.

Speaking of potato chips, I was once at a dinner table where a tuna-noodle casserole was served. It was my only exposure to it ever. Made with a can of creamed something soup. Except for the noodles, the ingredients did not charm me. (I often ate canned tuna back then, but wouldn't have considered cooking it.) As a guest at the table, I had to eat some and thought I'd cry when I got something in my mouth thta turned out to be crumbled potato chip. The mittel-American palate is a sad thing. If someone were to challenge Phebe to bite into a whole cherry tomato and me to eat tuna-noodle-potato chop casserole, Phebe would cave in first.

In 1996, in the weeks preceding the birth of Thing One, we interviewed local pediatricians. Our "money question" was always the same:

"We both have had a lifelong battle with weight. What would you counsel that we do as parents not to pass this predilection along? We don't want to obsess about food, but we want healthy kids..." We listened carefully. The most cogent answer was the advice to limit three types of foods from entering our home: foods with excessive fats, salt and sweetness.

We rode home from that interview, coming up with a list of foods with all three in excess. Donuts? Pizza? Little did we know...

There is one. And here is the recipe. What you all need is a non-kosher, (no make that stridently non-kosher), fattening (no, make that uber-gluttonous) recipe for pure decadence. Go ahead. In the immortal words of Robert Conrad from the battery ads he used to do: "I dare you."
