Food-related sayings

While growing up, my mother had two sayings that will stick with me forever (and that I still use):

1. Whenever she had something to eat that was rather insubstantial, she would always say, "That wasn't enough to fill a tooth with." Classic!

2. If someone was just standing around doing nothing or had a certain shifty look about them, she would say, "What are you doing? Posing for animal crackers?" This one just floors me. I love it.

What about you? Did/does your family have any favorite sayings that have to do with food or are somewhat food related?
