Favorite food to crunch: nuts, potato chips, celery
Favorite comfort food: soup! Or a baked potato.
Favorite picnic lunch: sushi makes a surprisingly good picnic food.
Favorite food scene in a movie: it's weird, but I honestly can't think of any food scenes in any movies!
Favorite food related lyrics: "life is too short to let it go to waste like this/but I never tasted jam before that tastes like this/yeah, life is too short to refrain from eating jam out of the jar." - Jam Eater Blues, by the Mountain Goats
Best food smell memory: the smell of hot apple cider always reminds me of winter trips to the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA when I was a kid.
Favorite summer snack: tomatoes (which I like to eat whole, like candy!), nectarines, pluots, beer
Favorite winter snack: persimmons! cookies!
Food that reminds me of the ocean: Seaweed salad.
Most likely to eat for lunch: Nothing. I am a terrible, terrible lunch skipper.
Least likely to eat for lunch: Anything that involves significant preparation.
Makes me literally gag: Uncooked onions.
Food tradition I love: Pies on Thanksgiving. My family gets a little crazy about the pies. I remember being a kid and helping make Thanksgiving pies... we had maybe (maybe!) 20 people present and there were always at LEAST six pies. You do the math people!
Food tradition I loathe: Turkey on Thanksgiving. Really, any meatcentric holiday traditions. But that's no surprise!
Favorite wild food: Berries! Of more or less any variety.
Favorite medicinal food: Licorice root tea. It's really good with a little bit of lime juice added. I know that sounds crazy, but try it some time!
Food that reflects my heritage: Potatoes, I guess. I'm descended from Irish people on my mother's side and Germans on my dad's side, and well, both of these nationalities are famous for their love of potatoes. And I DO love potatoes. But when you think about it, who doesn't love potatoes?
Food most like me: Parsnips. A little bit weird, maybe a little bit of an acquired taste, but very sweet when you get down to it.
Favorite raw food smell: Guava fruit!
Soup or salad?: Always soup! Fun fact: I hate most salads, because I hate lettuce. Yes, really!
Favorite breakfast food: Bagels. Sometimes I waver on what kind, but probably salt bagels with sliced tomato on top.
Favorite ethnic cuisine: Southeast Asian.
Favorite vegan ice cream flavor: Mudslinger's mint flavor is really good.
Favorite type of chocolate: Dark!
Favorite beverage: Fizzy water, Diet Dr. Hansen's ginger ale, good beer, red wine
Smooth or crunchy peanut butter?: Mostly I don't like peanut butter. If I eat it, it HAS to be crunchy. Smooth peanut butter is an abomination.
Food I hated as a child but like now: The only things I hated as a kid and grew to like are onions. And I still can't eat them if they have even a little bit of onion texture to them. They HAVE to be cooked to a point of melty softness.
Food I liked as a child but hate now: I think I liked peanut butter as a child.
Weird food habits: I like to eat many frozen foods frozen. Like... frozen pizza? I'll eat it right out of the package if there's no one there to stop me. Also, I often prefer eating food components over eating composed dishes. When eating anything that comes in small pieces (nuts, chips, pieces of candy, etc), I like to eat them one at a time. Dressing put directly ON salad freaks me out-- I like to have it on the side (if at all) and dip. Boy, I could go on for a long time about my weird food habits!
While writing this, I had to stop to feed the baby twice and to comfort him once. Now you see why I'm behind on posts!
