A Bite to Eat

As always...thanks for coming thru to the 12th Planet. I really do appreciate the love and the vibe that you bring. Without you...the planet would not be the same.

The subjects that we discuss here are those that come to me during the day or whatever comes to mind when I'm on the computer. If you have any subjects that you want to discuss or if you wanna vibe...hollatchaboyeee (

That said...I'm starvin right now. I had some popcorn about 4 hrs ago but there's no way in hell that I'm gonna eat something THIS late. It'll be sleep for dinner. LOL. I would love to have something my favorite...lasagna. Not only is it my favorite food but it is one of my best dishes (yes...12kyle can cook). We'll keep it simple today...

What's your favorite food????

rhyme time
When the average minimum wage is $5.15
You best believe you gotta find a new ground to get cream
The white unemployment rate, is nearly more than triple for black
so frontliners got they gun in your back
Bubblin crack, jewel theft and robbery to combat poverty
and end up in the global jail economy
Stiffer stipulations attached to each sentence
Budget cutbacks but increased police presence
And even if you get out of prison still livin
join the other five million under state supervision
This is business, no faces just lines and statistics
from your phone, your zip code, to S-S-I digits
The system break man child and women into figures
Two columns for who is, and who ain't niggaz
Numbers is hardly real and they never have feelings
but you push too hard, even numbers got limits
Why did one straw break the camel's back? Here's the secret:
the million other straws underneath it - it's all mathematics
Mos Def

in the whole wide world? I love sancocho- it's a Dominican stew that my grandma used to make for me, and now my aunt makes it for me (oh yes, I'm oh so spoiled!) and it's the best soup in the world.

It's the only time I'll overlook my "no red meat" policy because DAMN that soup is good! But if you get it, you have to eat it with white rice. And make sure it has chunks of corn on the cob in it, because not everyone makes it that way.

you know what? just hold on, I'm gonna freeze dry some and send it your way. Guaranteed you will cry when you eat it...

OMG! That lasagna looks so good! Definitely one of my favorites to cook and eat. Let's see in no certain order-

My mama's fried chicken and potatoe salad
mac and cheese
crab legs
shrimp pasta
Pud thai

You know, i'm going to stop here because i think i just love way too many things...heck i love food! Have a great day!

Good Morning,

My favorite food would have to be my grandmother's spaghetti. I haven't had it since she passed away almost 10 years ago.

My second favorite would be anything from P.F Chang's Restaurant. LOL

I also love pizza from Papa John's.

Shrimp would definitely be next.

Opinionated Diva said...

My FAVORITE!??? Me and good food go back like recliners...I don't know if I even have a favorite of all favorites.


My grandmother's ribs are at the top of the list. I don't eat NOBODY'S ribs, but hers (not even my mommas)...unfortunately she took that recipe to the grave.

My mother's sweet potato pie (I don't eat anybody's but hers)...her sausage stuffing, mac & cheese (it has like five different cheeses in it)...ummm, I'm gonna stop now.

I feel like Chris Rock in I'm Gone Getchu Sucka now..."I shole iz hongry!"

Brad said...

Wow....that one is up to how I feel that day.

Fried chicken (Popeyes spicy)
Fried fish.
Flame broiled Ribeye. whew.
My momma's brisket
Wife's mac and cheese.

12kyle said...

@ Jaded NYer
Man, there is SOMETHIN about Dominican food for me. There's a Dominican spot that I go to at least twice a month.

@ Miz
Mama's fried chicken! Amen! LOL

@ LRenee
Can't go wrong with PF Chang's. Very good call.

@ OD
I know what you mean about the sweet potatoe pie. I only eat mom's pie. I won't touch anybody else's pie.

@ Brad
Your wife makes a good brisket? Ok...I'm coming through this weekend! LOL

Don said...

Chicken Tetrazzini.

With plenty chunks of chicken in it.

With homemade cornbread.

With sweet tea.

Give me that, and it's over!

Lasagna is up there as well. So are Crab legs.

prettyparker said...

eggplant parmigiana

macaroni & cheese


mashed sweet potatoes

fried fish - whiting or perch

pretty much any and everything that mom cooks is my favorite. i love her cooking and i still hum and do a little dance at the table when she brings the food out!

Queen of My Castle said...

Daaaaaaaang, really really feeling today's Mos Def joint. I heart him. My sissy and I were just saying the other day that America is really not made for second chances when it comes to Corporate America.

I think my favorite dish(es) would have to be this Japanese dish called Chicken Yakisoba with scallops, followed closely by spring rolls and Texas rolls (a sushi roll). I'm an All American babe so I LOVE pizza as well. LOL

I know you said one, but I like all four.

Eb the Celeb said...

So I have a plethora of favorite foods that I dont have time to type right now...

12kylefan... said...

12kyle fan, not blog crush :-) in the house...
my favorite foods, in no particular order:

Snow Crab Legs
Shrimp and Grits
Butter Pecan Ice Cream
Gr' Mama's Sweet Potato Pie (She always made sure I had my VERY own pie to take home when I visited her in Charleston)
Fried Turkey- I must admit I put my foot in the Christmas turkey...

What I Don't like is eggs in ANY form... and reheated Fried Fish... That is the absolute worst taste...

TravelDiva said...

Tough call.

My mother's shrimp casserole, mac & cheese, and fried chicken.

Generally--pizza, french fries and broccoli.

PRO said...

I asked my little pros and big pro just now what they would say my favorite food is... The food that I could eat daily without complaint of boredom. Hands down they all said: SALAD! LOL I wanted a non bias opinion cause, hell, I like food. I guess I am somewhat of a health nut. Not to be mistaken for Badu, but um I loves my greens... All of the above are just as tasty though with a nice piece od salmon atop or some grilled chicken.

12kyle said...

@ Don
Cornbread is REALLY big in the south. I love some good cornbread

My favorite is authentic asian food: Thai, chinese, japanese.
