One of the things I saw among the 40,000-odd hits in Google for "in a  
bread bowl" was somebody's blog, with photos, detailing an evening of  
fine dining, which apparently included penne with lobster in a bread  
bowl (they thought it was kind of funny, too, in a carby sort of way).  
They then went on to ask themselves if their evening could get any  
more self-indulgent, which is apparently where the photo of the pint  
flask of Henessy and the package of "King Size" Reese's Peanut Butter  
Cups, "Elvis Edition", with banana cream, comes in...

Adamantius, suddenly and inexplicably craving mashed potatoes, bacon  
and sauerkraut. And cognac... probably not going to any of those
