But hey, what's a girl to do? Today I'll be recapping seasons four and five. Did I mention how much food there is in this show? Aside from coffee, which is a food group in and of itself, there's always inspiration to be found in Sookie and Luke's kitchens, Friday night dinners, and even movie nights.
So, while I had two MORE seasons of food to ponder, I still couldn't get that fried marshmallow pie that I mentioned last week out of my head. I couldn't figure out a great way to make a full fried pie (yet), so I went with hand pies instead. They're ridiculous, in case you couldn't tell by looking, and they beg to be eaten alongside a cup of strong black coffee (to cut the sweetness).

This week's cravings and obsessions:
- Bloody Marys and Emily's "Harvard Go To Hell" button.
- Cajun Eggs Benedict
- Fried Marshmallow Pie. Yes, still. I told you last week that I'd still be craving it this week. I know myself so well.
- Lamb Shanks (cooked by Luke, please and thank you).
- The gorgeous Sherilyn Fenn makes the second Twin Peaks face to pop up. Another return I'm eagerly awaiting.
- Jess. I can't get enough Jess. Please tell me that wasn't a final goodbye.
The coffee talk:
- Sebastian Bach! I didn't realize that he was going to become a regular character...and one that grew on me. Gil is awesome. But oh my gosh, I remember him being tall, but he is a huge man. Although I could do without the hair, he's still got an absolutely adorable smile. Skid Row for life.
- How awesome is Rory's first Bananarama onesie?
- I don't really understand this whole Jason thing. First of all, he doesn't seem like Lorelai's type. Second, he's kind of a douche and he's not cute.
- FINALLY! The kiss that was 4 seasons in the making. Team Luke!
- Am I the only one who starts singing "this magic moment..." every time Kyle (aka Squints Palledorous) is on screen?
- Also, when I see Zach, I want to watch True Blood. There were so many people in Gilmore Girls!
- Luke vs Sam-Dean on the Bop It. Even though I feel a little bad for Sam-Dean, I do love how protective Luke is of Rory.
- I wanted to jump up and cheer when Rory told Christopher to leave Lorelai alone. YES!
- How can Emily be so great one moment and so incredibly furiating and horrible the next?
- Big Red shrunk! Luke and Lorelai are sitting on it with barely any room to spare, but a while ago, Luke, Lorelai, Rory, and Dean all fit on it with room to spare. Very curious.
- I'm not really sure what I think of Logan. I mean, I don't think I'll ever jump ship on Team Jess, just can't decide on Logan. I get the appeal, but I think Rory likes him because he's new and exciting to her, and because he's slightly out of reach (not because he's better than her, but because he was raised differently and doesn't treat her like "the world", which she is used to).
- Logan's parents on the other hand. Ugh, infuriating. I hate those elitist a-holes.
- The proposal! I cheered and teared at the same time. Luke is the best and Lorelai goes for what she wants.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the episodes I watched this week, or if you're watching as well, the episodes YOU watched this week! Don't forget to drop by Chef Sarah Elizabeth's place for more Gilmore Girls discussion and a Chocolate Chocolate Chip Coffee Shake this week, as well. Until next week's coffee klatch...
