You Ask. I Answer: Food

risotto

Last week I was looking for some ideas for blog posts. The following was inspired by Patricia. She asked me a few random questions about my food preferences and then said…

“LOL i know this sounds like slambook questions…but you can tell a lot from a person by what their favorite food is ;)”

And if I am going to share…so are you. Enjoy my random food favorites. Then cut and post into the comments, so I can learn a lot about YOU.

  • What is your favorite food? Mushroom risotto. Yum.
  • What is your favorite candy bar? Kinda into Twix Bars right now. There is a candy drawer at the office. It is EVIL.
  • Would you rather have ice cream or cake? An ice cream cake. Ice Cream + Icing = The right way to do birthdays.
  • What is the craziest thing you’ve eaten? Well, I’ve already told you my “chicken” story. So I guess Rabbit, Frog or Snail? I’m not a super adventurous eater.
  • What is your favorite chain restaurant? Houston’s. That place is incredible. Every time. Every location. Every thing on the menu. Incredible.
  • What is your favorite fast food restaurant? Have to actually split this into 2 categories: Burger – Milo’s (no I don’t know what is up with their extra chunk of meat) Chicken – Chick-Fil-A (duh).
  • What is your favorite international cuisine? Vietnamese. Oh so good. (Important Note: As I am from Texas, Mexican is not considered international cuisine)
  • What foods can you simply not eat? Brussel Sprouts and Beets. Ugh.
  • What is the most random thing in your refrigerator right now? I don’t have much in my fridge right now. So the most random thing…feta cheese or turkey pepperoni…it’s a toss-up.
  • Do you have any weird food quirks? Yes, lots. Here are a handful…A. I love dipping sauces. Ranch, Honey Mustard, Barbeque – you name it I like to dip my fries in it! B. I don’t eat meat off the bones. I can do ribs under duress, but chicken…I will cry. I think is just plain wrong. C. I used to love pancakes. Ate them all the time. After a break-up, I have lost my appetite for them. Now, I am more of a savory breakfast girl.

    We have a few things in common on this one. Here goes:

    What is your favorite food? It's a Jamaican dish that no one who isn't Jamaican will have heard of or even recognize. I'm Jamaican and between my sister and my dad I can't get enough when they cook it.
    What is your favorite candy bar? Hershey Symphony bar. Deadly for me to even see one.
    Would you rather have ice cream or cake? An ice cream cake. Ice Cream + Icing = The right way to do birthdays. I LOVE ME SOME ICE CREAM CAKE. that's all 🙂
    What is the craziest thing you’ve eaten? I lived in Louisiana for a short time and hate Alligator for the first and only time.
    What is your favorite chain restaurant? uhmm I don't eat out that much so not really sure on this one. Maybe Ruby Tuesdays for their salad bar and Chocolate Tall Cake
    What is your favorite fast food restaurant? Chick-Fil-A for me too
    What is your favorite international cuisine? Other than Jamaican (cuz I'm Jamaican so not international for me), I would have to say Thai. Although I do love Vietnamese too.
    What foods can you simply not eat? Brussel Sprouts and Beets. Ugh and Ugh. I am so with you on both of those.
    What is the most random thing in your refrigerator right now? The Jamaican Ginger Beer that I bought at Trader Joe's that is surprisingly authentic (I think there is a theme developing here)
    Do you have any weird food quirks? I last taste of food in my mouth has to be the best part of the meal so I will deliberately save the best for last. This becomes a dilemma when I'm trying not to clean my plate but also not sure if I'll still be hungry if I don't clean my plate (you'd have to be in my head for that last one to make any sense – hehe)

    I had fun with this. Thanks!

    • Glad you're with me on the Ice Cream Cake. I love some jerk seasoning. Ah, Jamaica is good.

  • Gina

    What is your favorite food? Pad Thai
    What is your favorite candy bar? Skor, (or Twix is good too)
    Would you rather have ice cream or cake? Cake. Yellow is my favorite and preferably with vanilla frosting.
    What is the craziest thing you’ve eaten? not sure. Probably raw oysters. Or Elk. Nothing too crazy I guess.
    What is your favorite chain restaurant? I'll go with Houlihan's since I have a "thing" for their fish tacos.
    What is your favorite fast food restaurant? I don't eat fast food. Unless you count Chipotle(its fast). Does that count?
    What is your favorite international cuisine? Thai
    What foods can you simply not eat? liver, brussel sprouts.
    What is the most random thing in your refrigerator right now? Kombucha Tea ( has weird mucous-like things floating in it.)
    Do you have any weird food quirks? I am low maintenance when it comes to food ( no quirks) however, I like to have a drink while I am eating, even if it is just water. My mom is the exact opposite-she actually prefers no beverage while eating.

    • Chipotle counts. That tea sounds GROSS. Really gross.

  • oooo its an all share – i love that:

    What is your favorite food? Cheese. Any kind. Any time
    What is your favorite candy bar? Yes please. Please to send the chocolate to me and no one will get hurt.
    Would you rather have ice cream or cake? Ice cream, then layer of cake, then ice cream, then cake, then frosting. Moosh all together.
    What is the craziest thing you’ve eaten? Frog legs.
    What is your favorite chain restaurant? On the border… free chips
    What is your favorite fast food restaurant? McD’s and Chick-Fil-A – sweet tea in the south!
    What is your favorite international cuisine? Arabic food and Vietnamese food. Basically, anything I get to eat with my hands, or with chopsticks I LOVE.
    What foods can you simply not eat? Coconut, mushrooms, veal, and olives. Bleck.
    What is the most random thing in your refrigerator right now? This green jelly-curd stuff. It’s my husbands.

  • •What is your favorite food? Chicken…cooked anyway, my friends laugh at me when we go out to eat because I always order chicken or fish, always!!
    •What is your favorite candy bar? KitKat
    •Would you rather have ice cream or cake? A little cake with lots of frosting:)

    •Do you have any weird food quirks? I am so with you on the no meat on bones…I can’t do it either. My other food quirk is that I look my noodles and vegetables undercooked, something about the extra crunch and not all mushy.

  • Now I want to know this pancake story. Is that too personal?

    Also, Vietnamese = win! I love bahn hoi and nime chow and pho.

    • Really there is no "pancake story." I seriously LOVED them and suddenly was over them. (They kind of gross me out now.) Oddly timed around a break-up with someone I ate a lot of pancakes with. It's just bizarre!

  • Carol Anne

    Fun post, Lindsey! Here’s mine:
    Favorite food – Maryland Crab Cakes
    Favorite candy bar – Baby Ruth
    Ice cream or cake – ice cream (especially peanut butter chocolate from Baskin Robbins!)
    Craziest food – I’m also not adventurous, but I guess it would have to be venison steaks (not great)
    Favorite chain – Ruth’s Chris Steak House
    Favorite fast food – Five Guys Burgers
    Favorite international – Mexican (as I am originally from Wisconsin!)
    Foods I cannot eat – liver, canned vegetables, caviar
    Random item in refrig – lemon curd
    Weird food quirks – I used to not est anything that didn’t require utensils. Shrimp, corn-on-the-cob, ribs, chicken,etc. When I met my husband, we were invited to his friends’ home for a crab feast. He had to pick my crabs for ne because I was so repulsed. I now have no more issues after having children and watching them eat with abandon. I picked my own crabs last summer! The only other quirk that makes me totally relate to you pancake issue is that I used to love spaghetti, but now I can’t eat it without gagging a little. Not sure why.
    Alright, now I’m hungry…. 🙂

    • Peanut Butter & Chocolate Baskin Robbins is the bomb. Have you tried Chubby Hubby from Ben & Jerry. It is really delicious too.

      • Carol Anne

        2nd Fave! Too funny 🙂

  • Very fun!

    •What is your favorite food? Mexican anything. Or warm chocolate chip cookies.
    •What is your favorite candy bar? Love Twix, but also like dark chocolate Milky Way.
    •Would you rather have ice cream or cake? Cake. I loooove frosting!
    •What is the craziest thing you’ve eaten? I’m definitely not an adventurous eater, but I have had frog legs. So that’s something, right? (They were gross, fyi.)
    •What is your favorite chain restaurant? Just one? Okay, Jose Peppers, but it’s a local chain. National? Probably Applebee’s.
    •What is your favorite fast food restaurant? Arby’s
    •What is your favorite international cuisine? Mexican, as I’ve mentioned. But I also love Thai and Chinese, because it means I get crab Rangoon. 🙂
    •What foods can you simply not eat? Raw carrots without dip. They make me gag.
    •What is the most random thing in your refrigerator right now? Leftover salsa from Jose Peppers, maybe?
    •Do you have any weird food quirks? I swear I’m not copying your answers, but I love dipping sauces and hate meat on the bone, too!
    My recent post Granny's gold couch

    • I LOVE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. THEY ARE MY FAVORITE DESSERT – HANDS DOWN.

      Arby's is a random fast food pick. What do you get there that is so good?

  • Well you didn't really ask, but I will tell you about a weird food quirk of mine.
    When I was younger I had bad teeth. And my teeth hurt a lot. So I didn't really eat to many things that were hard.
    One of my favorite food of all was French Fries.
    The problem with french fries were the nubs (at least that is what I called them, the ends of the fries). They were hard and hurt my teeth. So I figured out a way to eat the middle without eating the nubs.
    I had a method to my madness and would build a nub mound as I ate my McDonalds fries.
    Weird, I know, but it saved my teeth.
    Sometimes I catch myself doing it now.

    My recent post Silent Murder

    • I am a starch girl too. I order my entrees based on the side that accompanies them – mashed potatoes, risotta, grits, etc. The meat part of the entree is less important. Really throws me off when I go to a steak place where you have to order your sides separately. Sometimes I just get sides.

      Peanut butter in your grits?

    any weird food quirks? I dislike meats not in their original form, including burgers. I do not want anything ground and pressed into some new shape. I love bread, but cannot stomach presliced, grocery store loaf bread (like Wonder Bread). The aversion is so strong I once gagged during a communion service where Wonder Bread was used. Also, bananas are out because they remind me of the dentist, so I have never had a PB&J or a twinkie. Every time I eat BBQ potato chips I picture the scene where Jabba the Hutt has Leia chained up in that gold bikini.

  • favorite food? It changes by the hour. On April 13 at 5:42 p.m., it's a cheeseburger with homemade pickles.

    most random thing in your refrigerator? A mason jar of cherries that I pickled last year and now can't bring myself to eat.

    * What is your favorite chain restaurant? Houston’s. Ditto. It is the unchain chain.
    * What is your favorite fast food restaurant?Chick Fil A
    * What is your favorite international cuisine? Vietnamese and Thai. Well pretty much any Aisian cuisine…
    * What foods can you simply not eat? Liver and Mayo in the extreme.
    * What is the most random thing in your refrigerator right now? Limoncello from a trip to Italy like 10 years ago, I mean really too old to drink, but sentimentality has me holding oon to it!
    * Do you have any weird food quirks? I am weird about meat. Picky and prefer organic and or fresh/local. Also weird about needing my food to be HOT when I eat it–no lukewarm for me.

    • i love some sushi too. is your limoncello from when we took that cruise around the boot of italy? if so, you need to toss it. i'll get you some more…

      • Marcie

        Yup from that trip, needs to be tossed!

      • Bob Garbett

        The beaver is a rather random thing – doesn't taste like chicken. Any melon is non-grata but cantaloupe even smells nasty to me. On a mission trip to Venezuela I ate all kinds of stuff – some I still don't know what it was, but at one home they served cantaloupe and I tried to eat it but the more I chewed the bigger it got.

  • favorite food? thin crust pepperoni pizza
    favorite candy bar? snickers right now, but i go back and forth between 3 Muskateers and it.
    ice cream or cake? Cake
    craziest thing you’ve eaten? Nothing really. I'm not an adventurous eater either.
    favorite chain restaurant? Cheesecake Factory
    favorite fast food restaurant? Chick-fil-a
    favorite international? Mexican
    simply not eat? Turnip greens. Ugh.
    random thing in your refrigerator right now? nothing. i just cleaned it out, but before that it would have been hummus.
    weird food quirks? Tons. I don't like tomatoes, but don't mind eating them on brushetta. I tend to eat all of one food at a time then move on to the next thing on my plate. I don't do this as much anymore. I only want a brownie if I can have it warmed and with Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream on top of it.
    My recent post Are you holding others back from their gift? Am I?
