Thanks to Aman Khan for this tag. I couldn’t have seen this at a better time, since I was running out of ideas for my regular Tuesday posts. Here are my answers to twenty-five questions about food.
Q1. What’s your favorite breakfast?
A. I don’t have a favorite breakfast. From day to day, I alternate between oatmeal, bagels and cream cheese, breakfast sandwiches, and pancakes with either sausage or a ham and cheese omelet. Most of the food I eat comes from Schwan.
Q2. How do you drink your coffee?
A. I don’t. I’ve never liked the taste. It’s funny, though, because I like coffee-flavored ice cream once in a while.
Q3. What’s in your favorite sandwich?
A. I like a sandwich with lettuce, onions, mayonnaise, cheese, and either lunchmeat or tuna or chicken salad. Once in a while, I’ll eat a hamburger.
Q4. Soup or salad?
A. I like them both. In a restaurant, I often order soup with a sandwich unless they have macaroni, potato, or pasta salad. When I order an entree, I usually ask for a salad. Most restaurants serve huge portions, and soup, I think, is too much, in that case.
Q5. No more sweets or no more savories?
A. I like both sweet and savory foods, although they may not be as healthful.
Q6. What’s your favorite cuisine?
A. Again, I don’t have a favorite. I like American, Mexican, Italian, and even Chinese.
Q7. What’s your favorite food movie?
A. I don’t have a favorite movie with food in it.
Q8. What’s your most guilty pleasure?
Q9. The tastiest food I’ve ever eaten was?
A. I’ve eaten a lot of good food in my life, but I don’t remember the tastiest.
Q10. What’s your favorite cookbook?
A. I don’t have one because I don’t cook much anymore. Even when my late husband was alive, the recipes I used came either from him or from friends. You can read more about that in My Ideal Partner.
Q11. What’s your greatest inspiration source?
A. Now that my late husband is gone, I’m not inspired to cook as often. Most of my meals come ready-made from Schwan.
Q12. Cooking at home or going out?
A. I eat most of my meals at home, but once in a while, I’ll go out to eat with friends.
Q13. High end or low profile?
A. I like major restaurant chains and local establishments.
Q14. What’s your favorite restaurant?
A. I don’t have a favorite, but there are some I don’t like. I’m not very particular, though.
Q15. I do my grocery shopping at?
A. I rarely go to the store myself. With my limited vision, this can be tricky, even with someone to help me find what I need. Instead, groceries are delivered to my home once a week from Albertson’s and once every other week from Schwan.
Q16. Coffee with Leonardo Dicaprio or Gordon Ramsey?
A. I don’t know any of these people, and I don’t drink coffee, but I wouldn’t mind having a Dr. Pepper with Alan Alda.
Q17. What should not be missing in your kitchen?
A. The refrigerator, the microwave, and the stove.
Q18. What is your favorite snack?
A. I don’t usually snack between meals, but occasionally, I’ll eat a slice or two of just plain cheese.
Q19. What’s on your pizza?
A. Everything except jalapenos, anchovies, and guacamole.
Q20. What foods do you really dislike?
A. Peanut butter and liver and onions.
Q21. What’s the one food you refuse to share?
A. Although I won’t eat anything if someone else’s mouth has been on it, I don’t refuse to share any food.
Q22. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Q23. What’s on your food bucket list?
A. I don’t have a food bucket list.
Q24. I couldn’t live without eating?
Q25. If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would you eat?
A. Chocolate ice cream.
Now it’s your turn. On your own blog or in the comments field below, answer any or all the above questions. Also, if you have additional questions about my eating habits, please feel free to leave them
