And now for something different....

Call me a "quote addict", but I do love a great quote...
Make me think, laugh, pause, or generally impress me with your "cleverness", and I'm all over it...
These are quotes about food....One of our Favorite subjects...

My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people. Orson Welles

The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found. Calvin Trillin

Fish is the only food that is considered spoiled once it smells like what it is. P. J. O'Rourke

Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what's for lunch. Orson Welles

Never eat more than you can lift. Miss Piggy

I went into a McDonald's yesterday and said, 'I'd like some fries.' The girl at the counter said, 'Would you like some fries with that?' Jay Leno

And my personal favorite...(drum roll paleeze)

Ha! Some great quotes there! If I may add a few? In "character" of course:

I pray for the neck of a crane, that I might linger long over my pleasures.
-- Melanthius, Ancient Greek Gourmand

If only it was as easy to banish hunger by rubbing the belly as it is to pleasure oneself.
-- Diogenes the Cynic

and, one of my all-time faves:

We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink.
-- Epicurus, Ancient Philosopher
