Wanted to do something special for my 100th post. So here are some sagacious statements that I thought I would share. These were compiled for me by a friend who knows about my food hobby. Enjoy!

    I always thought that Garrison Keillor was a bore, just more proof. Good quotes, thanks for the work.

              I believe it was Calvin Trillin who said, "Health food makes me sick!"

              Also, I forgot to add one to my list above. I use this as my sig in my email:
              "When you die, if you get a choice between going to regular heaven or pie heaven, choose pie heaven. It might be a trick, but if it's not, mmmmmmm, boy."
              --Deep Thought by Jack Handey

                All of my favorite food quotes seem to come from Homer Simpson:

                Donuts! Is there anything they CAN'T do?

                Dear God, who, in your infinite wisdom, gave us TWO kinds of clam chowder..

                Mmmmmmmm....floor pie!

                This donut has purple in the middle. Purple is a fruit.

                I wonder where Bart is? His dinner is getting all cold...and eaten.

                You can't go wrong with cocktail weenies...they come in this delicious red sauce. It looks like catsup. It tastes like catsup. But Brother, it ain't catsup!

                It's all because of my motivational techniques. Like donuts. And the possibility of more donuts to come.

                  I especially like the one episode where Homer goes to the file in his drawer at work (under 'D' for 'Donut') where he is frantically searching for his 'emergency donut' only to find and IOUOD (i.e. 'I owe you one donut. -- homer').

                  heh heh

                        A little quiz for the foodies: Who wrote, "...perhaps only one out of ten restaurants is good enough..."

                        That little line comforts us when we've just suffered a really bad meal
                        along the road - we know from the experts that our chances of getting something good are only one in ten.
