Anyone else on strange food kicks?

Now, by strange food I don't mean exotic - I can't think of anything less exotic than the kick I'm on.

I'm usually making a baked potato with cheese and bacon every day that I'm home (I travel for work) - this has been going on for about 3 weeks now! And I'm not using particularly great ingredients. The potato is usually a nice sized Idaho russet. I wrap it in foil with a little salt and olive oil and bake it in the oven at 400 degrees for about an hour and a half – I suppose this really makes it a steamed potato. Then I split it open and slather it with Country Crock – which is very weird for me because I only use butter. Then I top it with grated cheddar cheese – from a bag! I don’t even take 1 minute to grate my own. Last, I put Hormel bacon bits on it! None of these things normally (besides the potato) exist in my kitchen but I can’t seem to stop myself. This perfectly recreates the loaded baked potato I used to get when I lived in the south from a chain called Steak-Out (which I loved.) I started craving it and now I can’t stop!

My other thing is a bologna, American cheese and mustard sandwich for lunch. I haven’t ate one of those since grade school and now it’s the only sandwich I want (when I’m home.)

Anyone else experiencing a food kick they don't understand?
