Foodie Survey

My first blog is a survey!  I have to keep the tradition going... right?
1. How do you like your eggs? 
The question should be ‘how don’t I like my eggs’.  I can eat an egg just about any way, except for slimy side up. Blech!
2. How do you take your coffee/tea? 
 Brewed. lol… I like French Roast coffee as black as the night.  Don’t ruin a good thing with cream or sugar.
3. Favorite breakfast food:  
Not that I have this very often, but I love chicken fried steak and eggs with the gravy all over everything.  Could be the reason I don’t have it very often.  I haven't made my own yet, but I would like to. Anyone reading this ever make it and if so, do you have a good recipe you wouldn't mind sharing?
4. Peanut butter: Smooth or crunchy?  
 I like both, but prefer creamy.  I could eat Peanut Butter by the spoonfuls.
 5. What kind of dressing on your salad?  
Southern Ranch
6. Coke or Pepsi?  
 Not a huge fan of soda. I would rather drink Iced Tea.
7. You’re feeling lazy, what do you make? 
Make? I don’t make anything! When I am feeling lazy… I go out. ;)
8. You’re feeling really lazy. What kind of pizza do you order?  
Hands down – The Rock’s Revolution.
 "Revolution Tender BBQ pulled pork, pineapples, roasted red and green peppers on top of our famous cheese pizza. Drizzled with The Rock’s own signature BBQ sauce. It might not change the world, but it’s good."
9. You feel like cooking. What do you make?  
 I like to make casseroles.  PW’s Chicken Spaghetti is way up on the list.
 10. Do any foods bring back good memories?  
 Goulash.  My mom would often make it.  It would always be different depending on what we had on hand, but it was always delicious.  I make it once in a while and it takes me right back to coming home from school and smelling it before I even walked in the door. –and then I have to call my mother. =)
 11. Do any foods bring back bad memories?  
Sauerkraut.  Some day if I am feeling brave, I will tell the story.  Never mind, I will never divulge the details, but let’s just say it involved alcohol. 
 12. Do any foods remind you of someone?  
 Cabbage Soup reminds me of my Grandma and Grandpa.  It’s comfort food.  The aroma of the soup when it is cooking triggers so many fond memories of visiting them.
13. Is there a food you refuse to eat?  
See # 11
14. What was your favorite food as a child?  
 Homemade tacos. 
15. Is there a food that you hated as a child but now like?  
 Chocolate Cake.  Yea, I know… I was a strange child.  It’s not my favorite, but I will eat it now.
16. Is there a food that you liked as a child but now hate?  
See # 11 
17. Favorite fruit and vegetable:  
Raspberries and Cabbage. -not together… gross
18. Favorite junk food:  
 Corn Chips with Bean Dip.  It’s like crack!
19. Favorite between meal snack:  
Whatever I can get my hands on. 
 20. Do you have any weird food habits?  
I like to put potato chips on my burger or sandwich.
 21. You’re on a diet. What food(s) do you fill up on?  
 Lately it has been berry smoothies in the morning and a couple of hard boiled eggs.
 22. You’re off your diet. Now what would you like? 

See # 8
23. How spicy do you order Indian/Thai?  
3 to 4 stars.
24. Can I get you a drink?  
Cadillac Margarita, please.
 25. Red or White Wine?  
26. Favorite dessert?  
Crème Brulee and a glass of Port
27. The perfect nightcap? 

A nice glass of dry red wine.

Proof of my love for red wine. Our Pinot Noir vines.

How nice SavyTech, you can make your own wine! I thought that my kids were the only ones that do not eat chocolate, I don't understand why because my husband and I just love it.
Apr. 28, 2009 2:23 pm
it is odd that I never really cared for chocolate cake. I like brownies though so go figure. Never really been a fan of chocolate ice cream either.

My grandmother used to make a cabbage soup as well. It had 4 ingredients and yet tastes so good! I like to make it every now and then when I think of her. Welcome!

Thanks Angean. My Grandma's recipe had only a few ingredients, but I have tweaked her recipe over the years. Still reminds me of her. I love cabbage soup.

Great survey. And your homemade Pinot --that's the coolest thing. Hope you'll blog about making the wine next fall!
Apr. 28, 2009 10:42 pm
Mmmm! I love potato chips on sandwiches! :)

Lorem Ipsum... Hello fellow Seattlelite! That is a really good idea. I will do a blog on the wine making this fall. The wine however is not made from our Pinot grapes. We do not produce enough grapes to make that much wine. We actually buy the grapes in Eastern WA. Several different varieties. We make Cab Sauv, Merlot, Sangiovese (I love a good Sangi), Chardonnay (not my fav) and Cab Franc. Hopefully our Pinot grapes will produce enough grapes to make a little bit of wine though. CookingBug - I am glad I am not the only one that likes potato chips on Sammies. =)

salt and vinager chips on sammies is all good yum

Wow you are crazy brave, Pinot Noir is nick named the heartbreak grape because it is notoriously hard to grow and even a well grown vine can mutate; which is how the pinkish Pinot Gris Grape became.

It is so nice to see people cooking and not ordering out I think it is so good that you make your own wine if you don't mind how do you start I would love to start something new in our family. Thanks for sharing!

Hi SavvyTech, Good blog. I love chips on toasted all white tuna sandwiches with lettuce too. Also good strong coffee but with a bit of cream and sugar. I am reminded of my Grammy everytime I have a cup of tea as we shared one every day when I would leave my job and pick her up and take her home (I went without lunch). We would have a cuppa and I would go back to work. The only thing I have of hers is our sugar spoon. I LOVE that spoon as it only brings back memories of deep love between us until we meet again. Grammy used to make Pork Soup and I cannot make it her way. I have tried and tried. Of course there are no recipes. Not a huge sweet eater. But Grammy used to make custard pie for me when I was little. I love cooking all ethnic foods. Wish I had a big kitchen :-) Hugs, BJ

Don't feel bad--not that I think you really do--about not caring much for chocolate cake. I think chocolate is, well....a bit overrated. No, a lot overrated. There, I said it! Good in small doses, but no need to go Wish I could say the same about my real favorite foods, like pizza and potato chips (and yes, chips are good on burgers and sandwiches, better than just dumping plain salt on top). Love the kitty on the catwalk! The wine too.
May 4, 2009 10:20 am
that rock revolution pizza sounds good. Who makes that?
May 12, 2009 3:38 pm
Hi Angie... The place that makes the pizza is called The Rock Wood Fired Pizza. You can visit their site at Not sure if they have a location near you, but my favorite pizza place. MMM... BarbD, glad I am not the only person who thinks chocolate is overrated. Give me salty over sweet any day. And your kitty is adorable too. =)
