My Food Idols

Do you ever feel connected to certain characters in movies or on tv? I often do, usually when someone has respectable eating habits. Anyone who knows me, knows I like to eat. Below are the characters I most relate to, pretty much because their my idols for their eating habits.

First up, Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation. There's no question Ron Swanson likes to eat, mainly meat.

His most famous line is probably:

Parks and Recreation S3-- Give Ron all the bacon and eggs you have.

While that's the most famous, I have a few other favorites.

Happy Memorial Day! "I call this turf'n'turf. It's a 16oz Tbone & a 24oz porterhouse. Also, whiskey and a cigar. I am going to consume all of this at the same time because I am a free American." -Ron Swanson

breakfast foods!

I enjoy spinning cones of meat from Greek restaurants. :)

And my new favorite:

The complete quote for this one is (off my memory so may not be word for word):
Ron "I'll have a number 8."
Waiter "That's a party platter. It serves 12 people."
Ron "I know what I'm about son."

When the food is delivered:
Waiter "And a number 8."
Ron "Alright, party time."
Leslie "You should watch him eat it, he's got it down to 4 minutes flat."

Then Ron hands the waiter his lettuce and tomato and says:
Ron "I won't be needing these"

There are so many more but these are a few highlights to prove the awesomeness of Ron's eating habits.

Next up, Joey Tribbiani from Friends. Joey is most famous for his love of sandwiches, but he just loves food in general. Below are some of Joey's food highlights.

When Joey is on a date, taking some of his food is a deal breaker. "Joey doesn't share food!"

Joey doesn't question people eating food off the ground, instead he pulls a fork out of his pocket and says "What are we having?"

There is NO such thing as loving 'Friends' too much. Especially when you know exactly what scene a screen shot is from.

When Rachel made this trifle, Joey actually liked it. "Custard, good, jam, good, beef, gooood."


Friends has the best Thanksgiving episodes, usually because they involve eating. The clip below is from one of my all time favorite episodes. I love that Joey eats an entire turkey, but also that he snacks before and wants pie after. And he understands jeans aren't the best eating pants.

Joey's love for pizza. He gets sad when pizza is ordered without him. And the Joey special? Two pizzas.

The Joey special...two pizzas

There are so many more, but let's just say Joey is my idol.

Just so it's not all about guys, there are two ladies that have my heart when it comes to eating habits, Loreli and Rory Gilmore from a favorite show of mine, Gilmore Girls. Not only do I love the way they eat, I love their addiction to coffee as well.

I like coffee only with my oxygen   Two of my favs! Gilmore girls and coffee!!

Lettuce essence satisfies vegetable requirements for the week.

I always loved how the Gilmore Girls ate horrible food, but looked so skinny. It made their witty sarcasm barbed world that much more fantastical, in a good way. pop-goes-the-culture

On eating four Thanksgiving dinners in one day:

Lorelai: Rory what are we if not the world's champion eaters?
Rory: It's too much food.
Lorelai: It's not too much food. This is what we've been training for our whole lives. This is our destiny, this is our finest hour.
Rory: Or final hour.

They end up skipping rolls and then pull a "Joey" by asking for rolls at the end. Never too full for rolls!

It's been a while since I've watched Gilmore Girls, I know there are a lot of other good examples, their eating habits are featured in every episode. I'll update soon with more.

Stay tuned...

Happy St. Patrick's Day Weekend!

Where does the time go? This is definitely the busiest time of year for a girl working in baseball. So much to do to get ready for the season! I didn't find the time to do a St. Patrick's Day challenge this year. Hope everyone had a great holiday! I definitely had fun celebrating at XfinityLive in Philadelphia.
