Howdy folks. Super awesome good news, the man is home! Woot. With that in mind, there will probably be much more on my cooking list next week! For now I wanted to share something with y'all that has been making the rounds of the blogosphere. I've seen these "food ABCs" a couple different ways and just kind of picked one at random.
So here we go!
A is for Avocado: How do you like yours prepared?
Anyway I can get it! I love avocado. From a simple guacamole to slices in a sushi roll I really will eat avocado in anything.
B is for Bread: Regardless of nutrition, what is your favorite type?
Again, pretty much any way I can get it. I have a feeling this will be a reoccurring answer for me. I am a carbaholic. I love bread, tortillas, bread sticks, toast, all of it. Probably one of the most delicious loaves of bread I ever ate though was the white chocolate cherry loaf at Great Harvest Bread Co. in Anchorage. That thing was like heaven in my mouth!
C is for Chocolate: What is your favorite kind currently?
In terms of chocolate, the darker the better! I keep a bag of mini dark chocolate chips in the freezer for those days when I just want to grab a couple. These are, of course, also great for baking!
D is for Doughnuts: You might not currently eat them, but what kind do you fancy?
Krispy Kreme regular glazed, all the way. I have, sadly, been very disappointed recently with many of the doughnuts in the Northern Georgia area so, I'm just going to hold out until I can get the perfect little pillow of air and fried sugar that is Krispy Kreme. Mmmm.
E is for Eggs: How would you like yours prepared?
I love, love, love scrambled eggs with all sorts of veggies added in. Put it all in a tortilla and it's even better.
F is for Falafel: Yay or nay?
Never had it so.... nay?
G is for Groceries: Where do you purchase yours?
Kroger's, Ingles, or (le gasp) Walmart.
H is for Hot beverages: What is your favorite hot drink?
Is there really any competition for hot chocolate? I don't think so. Give me some Abuelita's Hot Chocolate in the winter and life will be good.
I is for Ice Cream: Pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping.
I just recently discovered Ben and Jerry's Red Velvet Cake ice cream and it is to die for. No extra toppings necessary!
J is for Jams or Jellies: Do you eat them? If so, what kind and flavor?
I sure do! Strawberry jam, sugar free, in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
K is for Kashi: Name your favorite Kashi product.
I don't eat any Kashi products.
L is for Lunch: What was yours today?
I mostly did a lot of snacking today leading up to dinner. Around lunch time I think I had a nutrigrain bar and some almonds.
M is for Microwave: What is your favorite microwave meal/snack?
Popcorn! I don't really use the microwave for any other specific microwave food, just to heat up leftovers.
N is for Nutrients: Do you like carbs, fats, or proteins best?
As stated above, carbs.
O is for Oil: What kind do you like to use?
I almost exclusively use Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
P is for Protein: How do you get yours?
Meat, dairies, nuts, veggies. I'm an equal opportunity protein eater.
Q is for Quaker: How do you like your oats?
Is "in cookies" an acceptable answer to this? Cause if so, that. If not I like them hot and simple, with some milk and raisins.
R is for Roasting: What is your favorite thing to roast?
Lately I have been roasting carrots quite often. The only downside is how hot the whole house gets! Yikes.
S is for Sandwich: What's your favorite kind?
There is this sandwich at Magnolia Cafe in Austin called the Flamingo, swiss cheese, avocado and sprouts with mayo and mustard on rye. Most delicious sandwich ever.
T is for Travel: How do you handle eating while traveling?
I don't! I eat like crap when I travel. And usually have tons of snack type food. The man and I ate lots of goldfish, trail mix, granola bars, ramen noodles and spam sandwiches on our drive to GA from AK.
U is for Unique: What are some of the unique foods that you like?
I guess I should just say spam again, ha. I had never tried it before the move. The man likes to take it camping. It's very easy camping/travel food. We got spam "lite" if that makes a difference. Other than that I'll try anything once, but most of my go to meals involve fairly common foods.
V is for Vitamins: What kind do you take?
A prenatal, probiotics, and fish oil.
W is for Wiener Schnitzel: Do you ever recreate this traditional Czech food?
Never have, and probably never will.
X is for X-RAY: If we x-rayed your belly right now, what food would we see?
Y is for Youth: What foods remind you of your childhood?
Potato pancakes are up there. A nice cool Dr. Pepper takes me back as well.
Z is for Zucchini: How do you prepare it?
Sauteed with onions, roasted, or baked into bread!
There you have it. Lots of information you never wanted to know about me!
