Vengeful Foods?

Wahooty | Jul 19, 2009 03:58 PM

Okay, so here's the situation. It's been a rough couple of months in my world...ended a relationship that just wasn't working, then got unceremoniously dumped by my post-breakup fling and ceremoniously dumped by a friend. The kicker with all of this is that in addition to the various emotional wounds I'm nursing, the fling and I had been having a lot of fun cooking, shopping, and eating together, so the dumping has been taking its toll on my enthusiasm for one of my favorite pastimes. In an effort to get my mojo back, I have started brainstorming Revenge Meals. No, not foods that would be easy to hide the poison in (I'm bummed out, not homicidal), but foods that are giving me some sort of petty satisfaction in my own little private way. For example: tonight I am having...

...jerk chicken. Accompanied by Dark and Stormys. And strawberry shortcake for dessert (the fling was...not exactly Yao Ming.)

I've thought that a bit of dessert voodoo in the form of spotted dick might be fun for next time.

So I'm thinking there must be other things out there that would help me vent all of my ill will towards my various exes in a relatively constructive manner. I'd rather cook than send passive-aggressive e-mails or drunken text messages.

So how 'bout it, 'hounds? Any thoughts?
