the food meme

I saw this one at Melli's and couldn't resist. I married a hobby cook otherwise I would be living on cheese and crackers.I collect cookbooks, recipes and love to talk about food, though.

1. How do you like your eggs? 3 min boiled :)
2. How do you take your coffee/tea? Black, both
3. Favorite breakfast food:
see above! but I regularly have muesli and All-Bran :) After a glass of OJ and followed by many cups of coffee...
4. Peanut butter - smooth or crunchy? Both, I haven't had any in years (really!!)
5. What kind of dressing on your salad? This is the single recipe I can share because my cooking is so limited: mustard vinaigrette- 1 Tablespoon olive oil, 1 T vegetable oil, 1T vinegar, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard , salt and pepper.
Otherwise I take olive oil , bit of salt and Modena vinegar
6. Coke or Pepsi? Coke, but only Diet Coke, which is called Cola-Cola light over here!
7. You’re feeling lazy, what do you make? Instant (cup of) soup , cheese and a slice of whole-wheat bread, green salad with tuna...
8. You’re feeling really lazy. What kind of pizza do you order? No pizza ordering over here at all! We go out for pizza and then only to one particular Italian restaurant. I like Pizza Funghi with extra mushrooms!!!
9. You feel like cooking. What do you make? a phone call for a doctor appointment, that would mean I am seriously ill!
10. Do any foods bring back good memories? Yes... the smell more than the taste...
11. Do any foods bring back bad memories? oysters. No further comments. But an update ::grin:: : according to Spaniards a big mistake is commonly made when eating oysters- don't drink anything other than white wine. Period! and then you are safe.
12. Do any foods remind you of someone? no, they remind me of places...
13. Is there a food you refuse to eat? Many! raw meat as in steak tartar or raw fish as in sushi. Escargots, fresh onions and fresh garlic - because they don't agree with me, liver, smoked anything, don't get me started! I think this could be a post on its own...
12. What was your favorite food as a child? Chickpeas. Really.
13. Is there a food that you hated as a child but now like? can't think of any
14. Is there a food that you liked as a child but now hate? all I can think of is beer...had it during the college years (ha!) and now I can't stand it
15. Favorite fruit and vegetable: green apples ( only Granny Smith) and broccoli
16. Favorite junk food: Diet coke
17. Favorite between meal snack: I don't normally snack, but it would be cheese and crackers
18. Do you have any weird food habits? Moi?? not at all, but if you ask Mr Mar he could give you a whole list of them...
19. You’re on a diet. What food(s) do you fill up on? I always watch my diet...so if I am more serious about it I do the contrary: I buy less .
20 . You’re off your diet. Now what would you like? pasta al pesto!
21. How spicy do you order Indian/Thai? the mildest possible version!
22. Can I get you a drink? Water and champagne , please!
23. Red wine or white? White wine. Red wine for a meal.
24. Favorite dessert? a spoonful or two of whatever Mr Mar ordered. Ok: Tiramisu
25. The perfect nightcap? I always have a glass of water on my nightstand.


  1. oysters, was that the Vigo incident, which then had you stuck in a hotel room in Porto for the day?... don't like oysters either...

    and bring on the coffee. have only had one cup so far... need to go back for more. am terribly lazy today.... even to fetch a cup of coffee

  2. That's a fun meme - I might have to try that one.

  3. Hubby got dreadfully sick on oysters. But, he still eats them! I wish he wouldn't. I worry about this.

  4. Ah, we are on the same page when it comes to drink - mine would be champagne and water too :) I also always have water next to my bed as well!

    Great meme. I might do this one too.

  5. Okaaaaaaaay... I'm getting NO info on nightcaps! Apparently nightcaps have fallen off the planet and no one has them anymore! This question should just go away! LOL! You don't like oysters? Mmmmm... I love them! Steamed or fried -- not crazy about raw ones!

    Love the answer about "making" the phone call! That really is SO me too! I do cook - cuz somebody HAS to... but I do NOT have to like it! LOL!

  6. Mar, I must laugh: I also drank beer when younger - not any longer - can't stand it (maybe in Belgium?) - White Wine: yeah. And fresh cold water at the nightstand: Yezz. Coke: Never. I can drink Orangina. Champagne? Guess (as a cyber cruiser that's a must- giggles).
    Breakfast: Pieces of bread. Very high degree of varieties - depending of weather - temprature and light.

    Favourite meal: Allways to days (sic).

  7. Thank you ! If ever I have to do this meme, I just copy and paste yours, lol !! The only thing I would change is Coke I don't like it at all and oisters too I had a very bad experience before that I liked them very much. And thanks for the tip now I know what I cook for tonight ! Pasta con Pesto !! I have fresh pasta in my fridge and also the pesto so that's a great idea !

  8. Chickpeas? Okay.

    I'm with you on the spicy food - make mine mild!

  9. I so agree on "liver"..And the funny thing is, it always smells so good cooking..Liver and Onions...? But it tastes like Meat Gone Bad, to me! (lol)
    I am not a raw fish person, either Mar....
    This is a fun one to do, isn't it?
