Sunday Five - Food


1: Have you introduced anyone to a food they didn't think they liked, and they did like it? 

2: Strawberries, I was raised in a culture that ALWAYS sugared strawberries - Jay was not.  Sugar or no Sugar added to your strawberries? (The local berries are in season right now.)  

3: What food do people assume you like, because you will eat it, but in truth you only tolerate it? 

4: What is your favorite cookie (what you Brits call a biscuit?) 

5: Have you ever ordered room service in a hotel? 

My answers: 
1: Have you introduced anyone to a food they didn't think they liked, and they did like it? 
I few years ago I made potato salad one evening, Tim tried and liked it. He explained his mothers was always this funny orange color and he never had the nerve to try it, she was dusting it with paprika as a spice causing the odd color.  

2: Strawberries, I was raised in a culture that ALWAYS sugared strawberries - Jay was not.  Sugar or no Sugar added to your strawberries? (The local berries are in season right now.)  Sugar for me, my grandfather liked them mashed and sugared.  

3: What food do people assume you like, because you will eat it, but in truth you only tolerate it? 
Broccoli, I will eat - but I really don't understand why. 

4: What is your favorite cookie (what you Brits call a biscuit?) 
Chocolate chip, soft ones.  

5: Have you ever ordered room service in a hotel? 
I seldom do, but I have ordered pizza and beer a couple of times.  I know a lot of people who will order room service when traveling alone to avoid going out to dinner alone.  I sometimes grad take out and eat in my room (hence the Sushi above.)

  3. 1. Not that I know of. I don't believe I succeeded in converting you to cooked cabbage.
    2. Not sugaring strawberries is my own peculiarity; my family always did.
    3. Cole slaw. And I thought you liked broccoli; I would have put that as my answer to #1 until today.
    4. Oatmeal raisin.
    5. Virtually never.

  4. 1) My niece to Broccoli. She thought she hated it until she had mine, now she loves it ( mine that is). Steamed with a light lemon/pepper butter. My lemon butter is made with the Myers lemons I grow in my yard.
    2) I grew up with them sugared. Mom sugared them to preserve them longer. I actually prefer them without but often sugar them when buying a 4 pond tray to preserve them longer in my fridge.
    3) Sweet Potatoes
    4) Butter Shortbread
    5) I love room service and don't order it enough.

  5. 1: Simple as it is, Carlos had never had potato salad until he met me; my Mom's was dee-lish so I made it once and he loved it. Now it's kind of a regular summer salad for us.

    2: I drizzle agave nectar o strawberries.

    3: Since my mother was Southern, people a;ways assume I like okra. i do not. I barely tolerate ... one nibble and I'm done.

    4: Cranberry oatmeal.

    5: Rarely.
