Sunday Stealing: Food, Glorious Food!

Time for a little Sunday Stealing (hosted by Bev Sykes)  -- questions lifted from all over the blogosphere. This week's list was stolen from Swap Bot.

1.  Do you like pie?
I love it. There are some kinds I can't eat, but I love those too.
2.  Italian or Mexican?
Italian, although Mexican runs a close second.
3.  Can you bake? If so, what are your favorite things to bake?
I'm actually a pretty good baker even though I'm a terrible cook in general. Haven't really done any baking in quite a while because the hubby is diabetic and doesn't eat sweets. When I did bake, I liked baking Bundt cakes and brownies best.
4.  Do you use cook books or do you try to find recipes online?
Both. Lately I mostly look for online recipes and I've found a few that are very good and work even for those of us who are not champs in the kitchen.
5.  Do you own a kitchen aid mixer?
No. At the moment I don't own any kind of mixer. My old Sunbeam Mixmaster died a number of years ago and I just never replaced it.
6.  Ever cooked a meal for more than 15 people at one time? 
Hmmm. Not that I remember. Not a WHOLE meal, anyway.
7.  Do you like hospital food?
I don't like anything about hospitals.
8.  Favorite fast food restaurant?
Does Panera count? We don't really go to fast food restaurants anymore.
9.  Any picky eaters in your family?
Yeah. Me.
10.  Soda or Tea?
11.  Hot chocolate?
I love any form of chocolate. Don't really drink much hot chocolate, though.
12.  Favorite holiday dish?
Depends on the holiday. And whether I'm just eating, or doing the cooking.
13.  What is the most tasteful strangest looking thing you have ever tasted? 
I don't eat strange looking things.
14.  Fries or tater tots?
15.  Do you like cheese? If so what kind?
Love it. All kinds. Have to be careful about my fat and lactose intake, though. Used to love doing baked Brie as an appetizer, but that would probably kill me now.
16.  Home made or can soup?
I like either, if it's tasty. I don't make much soup from scratch anymore — we eat a lot of Amy's soups, especially the minestrone and the vegetable-barley and the lentil.
17.  Do you like to eat out?
I do. We don't do it as much as we used to.
18.  What kind of food is popular where you are? (Like in Alaska it is seafood)
Texas? Barbecue and Tex-Mex. Also, German food in my hometown of San Antonio.
19.  Do you like cotton candy?
Not really. I liked it when I was a child. But even then, I thought it never tasted as good as it looked like it should.
20.  Turkey or Chicken?
Not crazy about turkey. I like chicken, but get tired of it very quickly.
21.  Hamburger or tuna helper?
Neither. I never used any of the "helper" mixes. And we're almost completely vegetarian now.
22.  Raw or cooked veggies?
Well, I like a nice green salad. Otherwise, I prefer my veggies cooked.
23.  Do you like salad? If so, what is your favorite kind of salad?
Love salad. Green salads, fruit salads, potato salads, pasta salads, tuna, salmon, shrimp, chicken. Just about any kind really. (Why am I getting so hungry all of a sudden?)
24.  Favorite pizza topping?
Cheese, mushrooms, olives, peppers. (Okay — time for a little snack.)
25.  Do you like meat loaf?
I do. And I make a great meat loaf. Actually, I make several different kinds of great meat loaf. It's one of the few things I can really cook. Unfortunately, we haven't eaten meat loaf in at least 30 years.



  1. M-mm...I could survive on barbecue and Tex-Mex without too much hardship. I also liked some of the Navajo food when I was in New Mexico. Do you have that kind of thing (fry bread, Navajo tacos, etc.) in Texas?

  2. We both love pie! In fact most of us do. Yay pie!
    A lot of chili stuff is off my menu, and it's hard but to deal with some Italian foods, but eating is still loads of fun.
    My old, second hand Sunbeam served me mightily for years and years. The new mix master monster has been used but it's been several years. There's a new-to-me baking show The Great British Bake-off) that might get that beast some action again.

  3. I never think of Panera a a fast food place, but I do enjoy it.
