Bacon, Cheese, Chocolate or Olive Oil

This is my 100th post, so let me get it out of the way and say thank you to all my readers and fans. I appreciate the feedback and encouragement and ad clicks you have provided for me in the past, and I am as eager as you are to see where this adventure goes in the next 100 posts!

So to “celebrate” this occasion, rather than write about my latest kitchen development (and there is a good one I have to write about – I will cover it tomorrow I guess…) I figured I would share a neat game with you all that was presented to me with some friends of mine when I was in Bedford, PA over the holiday weekend. This is a fun game for all people who love food, and love to think up their own food combinations. For me, this game is just a blast, and I find myself playing it all the time.

Simple enough, all you have to do is think up a food (no beverages) that can’t be improved with any of the following:


…Cheese (any kind of cheese)…

…Chocolate (again, any kind)…

…or Olive Oil

It’s a lot harder than it sounds at first – but makes for great debate at dinner parties. It is not impossible – I have a few that I have thought up, or that people have suggested – but I don’t want to share them with you, I want to see what you all come up with.

Better with cheese?… Better with chocolate?… Surely it’s better with bacon!

The best part of playing this game in a group is the different tastes people have. For example, someone suggested “Apple Pie” once, and some people said that Cheddar Cheese makes it better. I personally disagree, though I think that chocolate and apple is a great combination, so I say that apple pie fails to win from that angle.

If you want to play the super-hard version of this game, change “cheese” to “dairy”. Suddenly ice cream, whipped cream, butter and sour cream are all thrown into the mix as well, and the game becomes pretty much impossible.

I hope you all have fun with this – feel free to comment with your suggestions (I will provide feedback with how I feel about the picks of course) and thanks again for all the support over the past 100 posts! I promise the next 100 will be even better. And by “promise”, of course I mean “hope”.
