Sunday Morning Social: food

Some Sunday mornings, I'm so tired from staying up too late the night before, that i wake up with just enough time to hop in the shower, throw on some clothes, chug down some coffee & get out the door for church. Those are too much like weekday mornings...not my favorite.

Other Sunday mornings, I have had a good 8 hours of sleep, therefore i naturally wake up before my alarm rings. I get out of bed when i want to & take a nice long hot bath with a novel. Hubby always brings a fresh mug of coffee to me. :) Get out of the tub at my leisure, make some breakfast if i feel like it (egg mcmuffins this morning, so good!), sit in my favorite spot & do a little tweeting, facebooking, & blogging. That has been this morning. :)

Ahhhhh. I love weekends. 

So! How about a little Sunday Social? The topic today is FOOD.

{1} If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Hmm. This is hard... I mean one of the great things about food is the diversity! If i pick something crappy, like PIZZA, then that would be bad. But honestly, no matter how much I love salad, i would get tired of it & I don't want salad for breakfast ever. 

I'm thinking too hard. Cheese. Final answer. Cheese is my favorite.

Or fresh pineapple!!!! 

{2} What's your guilty pleasure/comfort food?
I would say chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven. I actually can't remember the last time I had these. Guilty pleasure that i have more often? Pizza. 

{3} What's the weirdest/craziest thing you've ever eaten?
I play it safe, y'all. I had sushi twice, and gagged both times. Alligator is pretty weird to some, but it's not all that weird in Louisiana. (It really does taste like chicken.) Still, I've only had it a handful of times.

{4} What foods do you avoid at all costs?
SUSHI, beets, green olives, skittles (if that is a food... i just think they're gross), cantaloupe, honeydew melon. (Not a big melon fan, haha.)

{5} What meal reminds you of your childhood?
Good ol' roast with potatoes & cooked carrots. Mom made it growing up & it's one of my favorite meals to date. Even though I hardly ever have it anymore! Also, sloppy joes, chicken with rice & gravy, little minute steaks. And her green beans are amazing. Haha. I'm serious.

{6}  Share one of your favorite recipes & the story behind it.
This was a tough one. I love trying new recipes, not sure if there is a good story for any of them, though! I finally went with Picky Palate's Romano Ranch Chicken & Rice Skillet. Y'all. SO GOOD. I love that it sneaks in a lot of veggies. It is really good. I haven't had it in awhile, because I'm trying to stay away from starches, but if you are okay with rice - white or brown - definitely try it. SO GOOD! I've also made it for dinner guests and to bring to families... it is always a hit. 

Another one is Chocolate Chip Pound Cake. This is a family recipe we've made for years & years. The recipe says a box of yellow cake mix, but last year i was tasting cake a friend of mine made & it was AMAZING! We were discussing ingredients and i discovered the only difference between hers & mine was that hers used a box of chocolate cake mix. So now I use that & am not going back. DELISH.

  1. Haha! I laughed out loud at your pick of cheese for the rest of your life! So funny! I am in the same boat as you... Chocolate chip cookies are my weakness. I can eat a dozen easily in one sitting. Shame on me!!
