Some of my favorite posts from other bloggers is when I feel like we’ve had a cup of coffee together. Like sitting at the table chatting about the latest, with little peeks of insight into what makes them tick. When Mandy at The Complete Cook Book gave a look into her world and extended an open invitation to do the same, I was ready to pull up a chair and pour another cup.
There are no rules, though I would ask that you link back to this post as well as Mandy’s, so we can get to know you a little better too. Just copy the questions and speak for yourself.
1. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?
Coffee, bold, from a French press, with honey and half & half.
2. What is your favorite alcoholic drink?
Red wine, Malbec and Merlot.
3. What is your favorite food?
T-Bone steak on a wood grill. And yes, I must chew on the bone to truly savor a great T-bone, so I cannot order this at a restaurant and remain civilized.
4. What is your least favorite food?
Liver and eggplant.
5. What do you eat that others think is really weird?
Goat meat. I grew up on a farm and we raised goats, so we ate goat. When I purchased goat chops (honestly that just sounds odd, even to me) at the farmers market a few years ago, the family was not thrilled.
6. What is your favorite thing to cook/bake?
7. If you could only choose one, would it be sweet or savory?
8. What time do you usually eat your dinner during the week?
9. What kitchen item/s have you never owned?
A stockpot. However, I have stored and used my neighbor’s for more than 10 years. If either of us ever move, I’ll be forced to finally buy one.
10. What tip would you give to a newbie cooker / baker?
Don’t’ give up, it’s worth the effort, learning to cook will serve you and others your entire life.
11. What is the best vegetarian dish you have eaten?
12. What is the easiest meal you can cook?
13. If you could only grow 3 herbs in your garden, what would you grow?
Basil, thyme, and parsley.
14. What would you use as a substitute for salt?
Tamari (like soy sauce, but little or no wheat) or fish sauce
15. What 5 items would you pack for a quick and easy picnic or day out?
Cold roasted chicken, Gouda cheese, crackers, sliced Fuji apples, and tea.
