It's All About Food, Glorious Food


Today's Sunday Stealing questions are all about food......they were fun for me to answer and hopefully will be fun for you to read. 

1.  Do you like pie?
Indeed I do, pies are my favorite dessert and I have many favorites, coconut, pecan, granola, apple and on and on.

2.  Italian or Mexican?
This would have to be a toss up.  I love them both.

3.  Can you bake? If so, what are your favorite things to bake?

Yes, baking is my favorite type of cooking and my favorite thing to bake is all kinds of bundt cakes.  One of my family's favorites is my Almond Pound Cake.

4.  Do you use cook books or do you try to find recipes online?

I still have a few cookbooks but I find it's just so easy to look up a recipe online that I do that most often.  I do have a file of my favorite recipes and I'll often just look through it.  There are still times though that I enjoy browsing a cook book.

5.  Do you own a kitchen aid mixer?
No, I do not and never will.  They are entirely too HEAVY!!  I have a Bosch mixer and it more than serves my purposes and I love it.

6.  Ever cooked a meal for more than 15 people at one time?

Yes, I have a few times and for that large of a crowd I generally do a "pot of something" or a big casserole.

7.  Do you like hospital food?

Well, it's been a very, very long time since I had to eat hospital food and I suppose it was sufficient.  Probably wasn't salty or spicy enough for me. ~smile~

8.  Favorite fast food restaurant?

I guess I'd say Sonic since I love their drinks and their popcorn chicken.  I rarely treat myself to either, but I sure do like them.

9.  Any picky eaters in your family?
Well, we all have definitely things we do.not.eat. but it's not such a big deal that it causes me stress if I'm cooking for them.

10.  Soda or Tea?

I like tea with my meals unless I'm eating a hamburger or sandwich and then I want a soda.

11.  Hot chocolate?

I do like it but rarely drink it.

12.  Favorite holiday dish?

I would have to say pumpkin pie.  I never ever have it except at Thanksgiving or Christmas and I so enjoy it.  Remember, I told you that pie is my favorite dessert..

13.  What is the most tasteful strangest looking thing you have ever tasted?

Brussel sprouts that have been roasted.  They do look a bit strange but they are so, so good.

14.  Fries or tater tots?

Definitely fries.  Tater tots are generally greasy. Ugh!

15.  Do you like cheese? If so what kind?

Indeed I do, and pretty much any kind!!!

16.  Home made or can soup?

I make really good home made soups and we eat various soups a lot in the fall and winter months.  For can soup, we enjoy Progresso Tomato Basil. It's very good!

17.  Do you like to eat out?
Yes, and Hubby and I do often.  We're by ourselves sometimes but we have a group of friends that we often eat out with and we have the best time.

18.  What kind of food is popular where you are? (Like in Alaska it is seafood)

It would definitely be Cajun food which means very spicy and very good.  We live in North Louisiana and South Louisiana is known more for their great food but we certainly have our fair share at this end of the state as well.

19.  Do you like cotton candy?

NO! NO! It is entirely too sweet and sticky.

20.  Turkey or Chicken?

I will definitely eat turkey but I much prefer chicken, there's just so many ways to cook it and it's always good.

21.  Hamburger or tuna helper?
We have eaten our fair share of tuna helper but not in a very long time.  Give me a hamburger any day.

22.  Raw or cooked veggies?

I love veggies but prefer they are cooked.

23.  Do you like salad? If so, what is your favorite kind of salad?

I've pretty much never met a salad I didn't like.  

24.  Favorite pizza topping?

I'm a pepperoni gal, add some bell peppers and onions and that's all the better.

25.  Do you like meat loaf?
It would be at the top of my "do NOT like" list.  I think it's the texture and I almost gag at the thought of meatloaf. ~isn't that awful~

Blessings to you this Lord's Day!

  2. I have been wanting to visit Louisiana ever since I saw an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives that featured a little roadside place where they cooked great vats of crawfish. It looked so good! We have a niece in Gonzales and I keep trying to convince my husband that we need to visit her one of these days.

  3. For many, many years, I made all of the bread for our family of 7. I could not have done it without my KitchenAid mixer!

  10. I haven't had hamburger helper in years! I like Sonic happy hour too! I am trying not to drink any soda these days and so far so good but I still miss it sometimes! Sparkling water with lime is doing the trick though and always fries :) Loved this post and getting to know you better!

  11. So fun stopping by and reading through your answers. haha about the meatloaf. I noticed I am not as fond of ground beef as I once was but I love meatloaf. I tried many versions through the years until I found one we love. Actually our oldest grandson will be returning to college and this year he won't be living in a dorm with a meal plan. He asked me and I have been teaching him cooking techniques all summer. Tomorrow he is making... meatloaf!

    Enjoy the rest of your week!
    Kindly, Lorraine
