The Greatest in Chocolate: Deep Fried Oreos!

I needed a getaway last weekend, so I got away. If you read my book, you might remember my second date with Justin. He took me to a special area from his childhood, and he treated me to a delicious family-style dinner at Negri's. And then, well, that date and chapter ended with a hot and playful sex scene. Remember? (I added this factoid as a cheap attempt to increase sales. Click on image to the left for more info on Woman on the Verge of Paradise. Wink.)

Anyway, a decade later, I was drawn back to where it all began with Justin: Occidental. Nestled in wine-country pine-trees and populated by peace-loving, hipster, wine-indulging bohemian artsy folk, I had a wonderfully relaxing time. And I had...
THREE DEEP FRIED OREOS ala mode!!!

I'm always thinking of you, dear sillies. So it was with concerted effort that I enjoyed this while simultaneously attempting to accurately describe their awesomeness in words. "MMMMmmm!!!" is really all I came up with. They were so damn good! I have no words. *Blissful, blissful sigh.*

On a scale of 1-10, I give Negri's deep fried oreos a 15, with a smile that radiates
post-deep-fried-oreo afterglow.
*Blissful, blissful sigh.*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On a completely different note, I'm thankful to Elephant'sChild for the suggestion that I submit poetry to Rat's Ass Review, an online poetry magazine for women's sex poems. A couple of hours after I submitted, I received word that two of my erotica poems (Valentinerotica and Springtimerotica) would be published here. It's the first time anyone but me accepted my poetry for publication. And it's a very fun, non-traditional (i.e., not boring, snobby, or migraine inducing) site. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Be well, my dear sillies.

Take care of yourselves.

*Blissful, blissful sigh.*

  1. Posting that picture of that decandence the night before I start eating clean is torture. But how would you know that? ha! Nevertheless, I am secretly devouring every bit of it (even it's just in my mind). A getaway sounds great to me. Hopefully for me, it will be soon. Happy almost new week! :)

  2. Any food that can make you sigh blissfully so much must be good! Now you've got me wondering what they taste like. :)

  5. The Oreos look splendiferous; I, on the other hand, just have sexy chocolate shoes waiting for you...

    Yay and congrats on the published poetry!

  6. You are a joy and an inspiration. And you have introduced me to the thought of deep-fried Oreos. Life will never be the same. (I wonder if I can get San Geraldo to cook those for me!)

    1. ...and for the rest of us? Or just me? (Note, I'm good with either option. Kindly inform him. Thanks, Mitchell, sweet friend.)

  7. Oreos weren't good enough? They had to be deep fried and served with ice cream? I prefer deep fried deep fry. I don't need all the filler, just fry. Crispy, crispy fry. And the ice cream, of course.

  8. Congratulations! About time someone recognized your erotic poetry talent.
    That sounds like something that would be served here in the South. They like to deep fry everything.

  9. it is amazing what gets created by accidentally dropping something into the deep fryer. Are these things kosher? ;)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I figure, since there's no ham in them, yes! Strictly kosher indeed.

  10. Congratulations on having your poems published. Another feather for your cap.

  11. Hey, congrats! Both for experiencing deep-fried oreos and for having two poems published! I'm heading over to that site right now -- it sounds like it's right up my alley. Why does that sound double-entendre-ish? It wasn't meant to -- really!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Congrats on getting your poems published indeed. To get a 15 they must be good.

  13. congrats on poems and for an oreogasmic treat. Perfect! Have a super week

  14. Oh, my so decadent! The ultimate chocolate extravaganza. Congrats on the publication of your poems. I try to enter an occasional contest, but have yet to produce a winner. Maybe I'm too conservative?

  15. Boy I sure wish those were on the menu when I used to frequent Occidental!!!! Have you ever eaten at Howard's Station? Congratulations on the poems being published too! Another feather in your cap! :D

    1. I don't think I saw Howard's Station, JoJo. Is it in the same area as Negri's? I thought of you when I was there, since I know you've been there too.
      Thank you!

  16. My taste buds are trying to imagine deep fried oreo's.

    1. It wasn't nice of me to offer NO description. They were like a divine pastry. The oreo itself is kind of liquidy, soft, crumbly - pure yummyness.

      Delete
  17. I read aloud deep fried oreos and my daughter said...no.

    All the best with your poem publication.

  18. I'll gain five pounds just looking at those Oreos. Congrats on getting your pornographic poetry published in such a prestigious place. It is nice that so many will be able to appreciate your talent and general hotness.

  19. Congrats on the publication! That is very cool.

  20. Congrats on getting your poems published. That's pretty awesome. But then again...so are you! As for the Oreo's, you are a cruel but awesome person! LOL

  21. Congrats on your poetry being published so that deserves a deep fried oreo:)

  22. Oh my. Deep fried Oreos sound divine. I've never had them. Congratulations on having your poems accepted! That's great!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Deep. Fried. Oreos! You have me really missing summer and all those fried treats they like to cram down our throats at the fair. Mmmmmm.

    Congrats on your erotica getting published! That's wonderful!

  24. Congratulations on your publication news!!! I'm now off to buy Oreos. That looks delicious and just the treat I need :)

  25. Reading the title of this blog, I tried to picture a deep fried oreo. Well, I got it wrong. What was in my head didn't come close to the picture. So, was that dinner, dessert, or both?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I pictured it differently too. I thought the oreo would taste like your ordinary oreo. It's much better, somehow - soft and somewhat crunchy, sweeter and more heavenly. It's all so good. It was dessert after a hearty appetizer for din.

  26. Wrap them in bacon and you've got yourself a deal!
    Oh. Wait. Bacon. Sorry.
    Oy!

    1. No worries, Al. The pig didn't go to mass, so it's all kosher. The way I see it.

    2. And turkey bacon. I think. Don't they?
      And who exactly are "they", these purveyors of faux bacon?

  27. Oh my gosh. Those sound amazing! I think I need to find me some deep fried oreos soon!
    Congrats on your poems being published! That's awesome.

  28. Hey Robyn,

    Ah, deep-fried Oreos. Great idea and I shall forward the idea of deep-frying Oreos to my Scottish friends. After all, they tried deep-fried Mars with outstanding success.

    This might be the only way to get Oreo cookies sold over here. The only way they sell in the UK is when they are drastically reduced in price!

    Congrats on having a couple of your erotica poems published, Robyn.

    I'm outta' here....

    1. Deep fried Mars sounds good. Deep fried Uranus? Not so much.

      Delete
    2. I don't care WHO you are, deep fried Uranus doesn't sound good.

      Delete
    3. Haha. True that.
      Thanks for always making me laugh, Chris.

      Delete
    4. It sounds good if you're...no, Chris is right.

  29. You can have all my deep fried oreos. Congrats on the poems getting published.

  30. Big congrats on getting two of your poems published!! I have seen deep fried Oreos but never tried them. Now, someday, I may. If so, I'll come back and let you know what I thought of them. :)

  31. Thanks, Rosey.

    WTF IS GOING ON? EVERY TIME I SIGN IN, I'VE LOST A BUNCH OF FOLLOWERS! GOOGLE, YOU HAVE NO IDEA, NOR DO YOU CARE, HOW LONG IT TAKES TO GET JUST ONE NEW FOLLOWER THESE DAYS. THEN YOU GO AND KEEP STEALING BUNCHES FROM US. I'm back to where I was well over one year ago. =(

    PS I love you all (but not Google). Please don't leave.

    1. I think blogger must be weeding out inactive accounts. In about a week and a half, I've went from 87 to 81. Which means about 40 of you read or lurk around my place. On the subject of blogs and such, I just got a e-mail from a USC grad student (yes, I vetted it first) taking a survey on blogs and how social media might be used to gather information. I feel all special!

      Delete
    2. Yeah, but they did that just recently. Do they have nothing better to do than to keep slicing our following? Do they not know this is injurious to our fragile egos? And that the whole purpose to social networking is to socially network?! USC wants your brain-power? Good on them. I frankly never had too much faith in USC, given I was a Bruin (rivals). Maybe you'll teach them a thing or two hundred.

    3. I'm still here. I think. Let me check.
      Yep, here I am.

  32. I thought Oreos were a perfectly wonderful treat but then I tried the deep fried version. OMG...nothing should be that good. The Universe is trying to make us all fat.

    WTF is right. I have talked to several bloggers today and their followers are dropping like flies. Makes me paranoid. Who might I have offended today?

    1. Thank you for understanding and agreeing - both regarding the orgasmic quality of deep fried oreos and suckyness of followers dropping like flies. Take care, Cheryl.

  34. :) Never heard of deep-fried Oreos, and now I am glad I have. I will give it a miss and enjoy your ecstasy.
    Deep fried Mars and Deep fried Uranus? Hmm. Hopefully I won't hear of or see the latter!

    Didn't know about your book, Robyn. Gosh, there's a lot I don't know. Which is why I love life. :P

  35. P.S.: Is this what they call Food Porn?

    1. Good question, Vidya. If that isn't food porn, I don't know what is!
