I don’t know how I would make it through an entire VeganMoFo without having a survey or two to bail me out on my days when I can’t properly blog. Keri from “I Eat Trees” posted this little gem the other day, so I jumped on the chance to use up one of my “lazy cards”.
I know it’s only the fourth day.
Also, thanks so much to everyone who left a comment for the free pint of Luna and Larry’s! I promise to whoever wins: your tummy will be very happy! Contest is still open ’til this Friday at Midnight…
Now, onto the random questions:
What is one food you thought you’d miss when you went vegan, but don’t?
Milk Chocolate… now I love the dark stuff!
What is a food or dish you wouldn’t touch as a child, but enjoy now?
Cooked Onions (but they have to be REALLY cooked).
What vegan dish or food you feel like you “should” like, but don’t?
Oh geez, here it comes- I really really don’t like tofu scramble. There, I said it. I told my husband this recently and I think his respect for me dropped down a notch :\
What beverage do you consume the most of on any given day?
Black Coffee. Oh wow… that’s sad.
What dish are you “famous” for making or bringing to gatherings?
Any type of cake. I’m the designated gluten free vegan cake person.
Do you have any self-imposed food rules (like no food touching on the plate or no nuts in sweets)?
I find marinated artichoke hearts to be inedible and terrifying… does that count? I guess the rule would be “no marinated artichokes allowed in my kitchen. ever.”
What’s one food or dish you tend to eat too much of when you have it in your home?
Potato Chips- I can easily kill an entire “family sized” bag by myself in one sitting.
What ingredient or food do you prefer to make yourself despite it being widely available prepackaged?
GF flour blends.
What ingredient or food is worth spending the extra money to get “the good stuff”?
Coffee and Red Wine.
Are you much of a snacker? What are your favorite snacks?
I am definitely a big snacker. Favorites are almonds, tomatoes with black pepper, chocolate chips, avocados, potato chips, Medjool Dates, and veggies and hummus.
What are your favorite vegan pizza toppings?
Artichoke hearts (not marinated!) , spinach, green olives, banana peppers, mushrooms and Daiya.
What is your favorite vegetable? Fruit?
What is the best salad dressing?
Avocado, lemon juice, salt and olive oil blended up until creamy… it’s like guac dressing. YUM.
What is your favorite thing to put on toasted bread?
Freshly sliced garden tomato, black pepper, salt and Vegenaise- with another slice of toast on top to make a sammich.
What kind of soup do you most often turn to on a chilly day or when you aren’t feeling your best?
Spicy Cabbage Soup.
What is your favorite cupcake flavor? Frosting flavor?
Love me some white cake with buttercream.
What is your favorite kind of cookie?
Oh man, all of them- but I particularly love this one type of cookie I make using almond paste. So. Good.
What is your most-loved “weeknight meal”?
Lately its been a toss up between my pumpkin alfredo and sushi… always easy, and everybody walks away full and happy.
What is one dish or food you enjoy, but can’t get anyone else in your household to eat?
Lentils. Actually the kids love them, it’s my husband who hates them- we all pretty much agree on everything else.
How long, in total, do you spend in the kitchen on an average day?
about 4 hours… at least!
Feel free to leave your own answers to any/all of these questions in the comments section if you’d like … or a link to your blog where you answered them. That would be kinda like a “getting to know you”, right? And I always love to get to know my readers better. ♥
