If no one else is around?

I just finished grilled pork with yummy spicy tomato sauce and cheese and I cannot let that go to waste.

I don't do it in public or anything...

As long as it's your own plate, I say go for it.

Go for it. I drink directly out of the juice and tea bottles in the fridge. I always swore I would when I was a grown up :D

Licking bowls? What an amature! You'll know you've graduated to the big leagues when you can get that last bit of tapioca from the bottom of a pudding cup.;)

If you're uncomfortable licking the plate, grab another slice of bread and butter to sop up the rest of the sauce.

It's one of the joys of living alone :D

(that and drinking milk from the bottle, tv autonomy, taking a bite of cheese then putting it back in the fridge. Also walking about in only undercrackers. Boy I like living alone!)

I've also mastered getting the last bit of Nutella out of the jar. And that's a wacky-shaped jar!

Our water went out so I technically had a legitimate excuse to lick the dishes. :) It drives my husband crazy so I try to control it in front of him (read: go to the kitchen) because he won't even lick off his fork. ::shakes head::

The Nutella jar? Wow, that's impressive. But I understand, I love Nutella and they don't have real chocolate in Mexico.

Ha, not here at least. We were just looking at the site for a fondue restaurant my hubby worked for years ago in San Jose. Yum.

And I was a mess after the nutella incident. :)

btw, I just posted a mini-rant on your post about Mexico.

Nope, nothing bad about it. Though I don't recommend doing it in resteraunts; everyone stares. :D



Undercrackers? that sounds....uncomfortable....

*sigh* Ibarra is such a tease. But it could be worse, when I stayed in Brazil for six months, we used to eat galletas Maria's and sweetened condensed milk to get our sugar fix. I would have killed for a Hershey Bar, ick.

I act like I live alone. I just put shorts on half an hour ago but that's just because the curtain keeps blowing open. It's usually really hot here.

If you're home alone, you don't even need a plate. Just stand there with a spoon and the saucepan and you're pretty much good to go.

Go on and lick the plate, the bowl, the beaters, the cups ... just don't lick the frying or roasting pan until it's cooled down.

If no one else is around?I lick anything worth licking, so go for it. :D

Full access to the remote control. Still have privacy with the washroom door opened. Walk around naked. Geez, the list goes on. Sometimes, Life is Good. Thanks for the reminder, Ben. ;)

:DLOL! I'm sure Ben's physique turns someone on. Just kidding Ben.

Ooooh, we can also bring home anyone we want without any conflict or disruption. *ponders this idea* It's been awhile since I've found a stray. :D

But it's hard to be online from the stove. I already have the couch pushed in front of the desk.

DEMANDS YOU SEND NUTELLA!!


I can't find it here.

Okay look I lick the dang plate..when at home....and I DON'T care who sees me!
Mostly its just me and the hubbs and the furry children when this happens though.
And then me and the furry children are fighting over it!

I am bad about licking the cooked, runny, yellow egg yolks off a plate.....YUM!!

We're out of Nutella at the moment - trying to cut back on that & tortillas - but I might have to send the hubby out. I've licked the eggs too.

No tortillas??? What do you use instead. Certainly not *gasp* a spoon? Heathen ;)

Yes, it's come to that. When I was asked twice in 20 minutes if I was pregnant (because that's ok to say down here) I decided I needed to ration myself. Now if anyone asks I say it's my tortilla baby. We call him Dilla.

And that's the other thing, when you're not using silverware you HAVE to lick the plate!

Was it cochinito pibil. Because if that was the case, perfectly acceptable, and at least you weren't holding the bowl with your feet. You weren't holding the bowl with your feet, were you? :D

Ha ha, no. One of the people who said it was my father-in-law and HE got offended that I was upset! I made my hubby explain that in my culture that's not an acceptable thing to ask. He still didn't get it but at least he stopped giving me the evil eye.

I am curious to see if I can carry a bowl or bucket on my head.

Sure, why not?

I licked a plate in a public restaurant once. It was a nice shindig in Manhattan and the waitress came up to our table and asked my companion if she was done WHILE grabbing her plate. I knew my companion had been nibbling on what remained while we chatted, so when she grabbed my empty plate - without even asking - I grabbed her wrist and said, "No, I'm not done." Then proceeded to lovingly lick the plate clean.

She looked at my companion and said, "You've got your hands full with this one..."

Sounds yummy, Melanie. Heck, I even lick my hubby's plate, just when he's not looking.

It is against the law to leave chocolate in a bowl or on a plate! You must lick!
