My Top 10 Food-Related Minor Luxuries (other than White Castles)

Great topic. Lot's of potential for diving in deep...

1. Selecting a bottle of (aged, but not terribly expensive) bordeaux from the cellar to have with Christmas dinner.
2. Blue crab omelets on the morning after a day of crabbing with the kids.
3. An ice cold Yuengling on the back deck on a summer afternoon after mowing the lawn...and then having another.
4. A USDA prime porterhouse steak (medium-rare), asparagus drizzled with balsamic vinegar, and a half-bottle of Ramey cabernet sauvignon at the Morton's Steakhouse near Chicago O'Hare while travelling alone.
5. Leaving an unexpectedly huge tip at a restaurant when traveling and imagining the look of surprise on the server's face.
6. Buying, cooking, and eating just-picked New Jersey sweet corn in late summer.
7. Breakfast with the family at the Watertable Restaurant (Renaissance Hotel, Baltimore) with a view of the inner harbor on a clear sunny day.
8. A flame-broiled O'round and Guinness at Lynaugh's (Lexington, KY) with college buddies you haven't seen in over a decade.
9. Having breakfast with the kids every Saturday morning at a diner where the waitress smiles at you and has coffee ready for you before you are seated.
10. Real southern-brewed, ice cold sweet tea.

Also try leftover crab cake on an English muffin and fried egg on top.

Put them on ice before you begin. Rolling Rock will also do.

Don't forget the tomatoes!!

Full "wet shave": silvertip badger brush, superlather (soap and cream) whipped to perfection, my antique Rolls Razor, and, being retired, plenty of time in the AM to savor it.

I read somewhere that Jerry Lewis wears a new pair of socks everyday, and then throws them out. A luxury--and a waste--if you ask me.

You're going to laugh, but I'm totally serious: Lunch at White Castles (4 sliders, crinkle cut fries, and a diet coke). When the nearest WC is 35 miles away, it certainly is a luxury.
I love White Castle, haven't had that in a while.
