Only if it is New Jersey pizza with the grease going through the box and the cheese sliding off the pizza .

19 Kids & Counting.

And the occasional plate of biscuits and gravy.

And The Waltons reruns. I have a thing for big families I guess.

Good tiramisu and red velvet cake.

Not at the same time, though.

I did give away a big chunk to my neighbor though. But I will have to do a little extra walking this week.
I bet you stopped at the Amish bakery where 82 goes to Starkville and Columbus. Am I correct?"

That would be the Ole Country Bakery in Brooksville, MS. That's one of the very few places to get your fresh rhubarb pie in MS. They also have many other varieties of pie, cake and pastry, as well as deli items.

When I was on the road for Megacorp, the Ole Country Bakery was one of my regular stops.

Actually, it is owned and operated by Mennonites. Orthodox Amish cannot own and operate a modern restaurant with air conditioning, refrigeration, and electric lights.

Love me some St. Louis-style pizza with provel cheese. And great BBQ (baby back ribs, pulled pork, and burnt ends) with a thick sweet sauce. And definitely grandma's mostaccioli with meatballs and homemade sauce.

I don't understand why any of this should be guilty, or even all that pleasurable. Well, except maybe the pizza, in my case New Haven pizza.

As an American Roman Catholic man, I've had my share of guilt, but it was always at least reasonably well earned.

I would like to have no guilt about anything, but I think that is unlikely to happen in this lifetime. Maybe I can come back as a Latino?

Ha

I have always seen the "guilty" in the title phrase as ironic.

That is the place. I do not get through that part of MS often, but stop by when I do.
They have great sandwiches, also.

Any of the Cowgirl Creamery (CA) cheeses paired with a crusty baguette and a glass of wine.

I think my guilty pleasure is going to Trader Joe's. I love: looking at all the products, the free coffee sample, looking at the other shoppers, the music they play and I enjoy interacting with the people who work there.

It's a nice 1.5 mile walk from my house and if I want to hop the bus back there is one that goes every 20 minutes.

Another guilty pleasure is the shower/steam room/hot tub/sauna at my gym.
