This is a term I'm hearing all too often - someone being a "Foodie". What in the heck does that mean?You like to eat??? Who doesn't like to eat?!? Do you like eating more so than others, or does it involve eating out at the newest fad of a restaurant trying to detect something that you think it's missing?? Is it solely eating out or do you "foodie-ize" your own cooking (if you even cook)? Help me out, here. What makes you a Foodie when eating is a necessity for survival? Or do you only like good food? I like good food, so does that make me a foodie? FWIW, this all started a couple of months ago when a friend of mine ordered some mac and cheese. Someone said "Let xxxx try it... she's a foodie". She leans over, takes a bite, and says "it's good... but missing something". This was after three others had just declared it some of, if not the best mac and cheese they have ever had. Now I see/hear it every week or so. It's pretty confusing as to what exactly it is defined to be.
