Hola! Como esta? Bien! Bien!
I woke up this morning with great hopes that the snow would be gone. Nope! DOH! It has been ages! I was under the impression that there is good weather here. Mucky slush for weeks does not count.
I prefer not to be out in these conditions and honestly I have no need to go anywhere. I have been getting to know our kitchen and exploring new cooking techniques, cooking through the pantry and trying to eat in as much as we can. Yet, as much as I love to bounce around a kitchen, I need some company.
I thought this would be a great time to get to know each other a bit better.
Copy and paste this brief questionnaire in the comment section with your own answers or post it yourself on your blog and leave a link for me in the comment section.
I truly look forward to your comments!
Thanks Lottie + Doof for the idea!
Sweet or salty?
Salty. Salt. Salt. Salt. Then, I usually crave something sweet, usually an apple. Totally predictable.
Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate. Dark chocolate to be exact.
Hot or mild?
What won’t you eat?
Organ meat. Ribs. Grissel. Yeah, meat has always kind of grossed me out.
Most memorable meal?
While in college, a girlfriend and I went to Mt. Baker and I was going to learn to snowboard. I tried. We were, like many college kids, very broke. We skipped any sort of food offered at the mountain, hungry we drove the hour + it takes to get down from the mountain. My Grandma lived on the way home, I had to stop in. We open the door to the most amazing smell, the richest and most satisfying smell of a roast with veggies in the oven. She invites us in. We sit. The next thing we know there are plates covered in piping hot veggies, mash potatoes and gravy with a slice of roast squeezed in between. She was the only one home and had no idea she would have company. She was an amazing cook. We probably had pie for dessert. That is how she was.
Favorite object in your kitchen?
My cast iron skillet.
What are you scared of in the kitchen?
Dull knives. I also have being a spaz with sharp knives.
Do you prefer to cook alone or with others?
I really enjoy cooking with my husband. He knows exactly what I like.
What country would you move to for the food?
I am not sure yet. I still have a lot of traveling and reading to do before I can even narrow down my selection.
If you were to come back as a fruit or vegetable, what would you be?
Grapes! They are such prestigious vines with an incredible versatile fruit. I like warm moderate climates as well.
What’s for dinner?
Black eyed peas and kale in beef broth.
