10 Forever Foods

What if you could only eat 10 foods for the rest of your life?!  Like, I don't know, some scary immortal dude is following you around monitoring every little thing you put in your face.   Or, maybe you'll explode if you eat an item that's not on your list.  What do you pick?!  Do you pick wedding cake so that you're not the asshole who never eats the cake at weddings?  If you're religious, do you have to pick those little wafers that you eat at communion?  Do you consider nutritional value or just yumminess?  There are so many things to take into account!

The rules are:  1) Drinks don't count.  You can drink what you want.  (Whew.) 2) List is for meals and desserts both.  3) You can't say Combo Plate #1 from Jumburrito or something because that's cheating.

When this question was posed to me recently, here's what I did:

1) Cheese pizza.  I feel like this is a pretty safe choice.  You can't really mess up a cheese pizza and most restaurants have one.  Plus, I could eat it for any meal or snack.  Or put eyes and a mouth on it and make it my Wilson in case there's an apocalypse and I'm the only human left.  Wait.  Who will make my pizza then?  Nevermind.  Ugh. :(

2) Sushi.  Probably won't get sick of sushi.  Plus, I live in L.A., so I have to eat sushi or I'll get banished to the valley or something.

3) Apples.  Okay, look, I LIKE apples, so shut up.  Also, I figure I better eat something healthy if it's for the rest of my life.  I guess when I'm all old and toothless, this could be apple sauce?  Is that cheating?

4) Nachos.  This was hard.  Super toss up between nachos and cheese enchiladas but I figure that nachos are great for sharing and I can eat them at sports events and stuff.

5) Veggie Omelet.  I'm gonna have to get some veggies somehow since I went plain cheese on the pizza. I figure I can order this every brunch ever and it will be all kinds of yummy.

6) Cake.  I'm married to the King Of Pies but, you know what?  I want to be able to eat wedding cake and Birthday cake and cupcakes and all of the cakes.  So there.

7) Veggie Burger.  Easy and yummy and they're everywhere.  If I get bored, I can just douse that thing in ketchup.

8) Pasta.  What if I end up in Italy someday and I can't have pasta because I didn't put it on my stupid list?  How dumb would I feel then, huh?  WAY more dumb than creating a list of foods I'll eat forever because of some make-believe reason!

9) Grilled Cheese Sandwich.  This is necessary because sometimes I travel and the only thing on the menu I can eat is grilled cheese.  Plus, it's a freaking grilled cheese sandwich!  Come on!

10) Chocolate.  Because.

That was hard.  I'm so glad I don't actually have to just eat these foods forever.  I'm soooo hungry now.  I'm hungry enough to eat numbers 1 through 4 and then 10 after.

What would you eat?  Would we be able to eat together?  Let me know!
