We Want Know Wednesday: 09/28

Wow, this week has been crazy both at work and home! I apologize for not commenting on your blogs like I usually do.  Hopefully by tomorrow night everything will be back to normal.

I wanted to take some time out of my busy schedule and participate in one of my new favorite weekly blog hops, Mamarazzi’s and Queso’s We Want To Know Wednesday.

This week it’s all about food.  If you know me in real life (or follow me on Twitter) you know I love food.  My parents raised me to try everything at least once, if you don’t like you don’t have to try it again. I take that same rule into my adulthood, except I have yet to try guacamole. The texture freaks me out, but some of my besties claim it’s to die for.  Maybe I’ll be brave one day after a few margaritas.

This week’s questions:

1} What is one thing (food or drink) that you MUST have everyday?
There isn’t one particular thing I have to have every day.  I do have to have some sort of caffeine, whether if it is in the diet coke form or Sweet Tea form it is a must have!

{2} What is your "go to" food when you don't feel well/need comfort?
Cinnamon toast and hot tea. This is my go to comfort food when I am not feeling 100%. I think I am coming down with something, I have a sore throat, chills, congestion and I cannot wait to get home and have a glass of hot tea with my toast.
{3} Is there a dish that you make that people request when they visit your home/a family favorite?
Whenever we have poker night at our house, the hubs friends get upset if I don’t make Buffalo Chicken Dip.  If we are going to a picnic or family get together I always get asked to make Pretzel Salad or Tortellini Salad.   This time of year my pumpkin roll is also a huge hit.  The hubs loves my mom’s pork chop casserole and requests that I make it every week, even if it’s 100 degrees outside.
{4} What are 3 foods you have TRIED, do not like and will NEVER eat again?
Brussel Sprouts, I hated them as a kid and I still hate them now.
Venison (or deer meat), I only eat it when it’s mixed into chili; otherwise I refuse to eat it.  It tastes gamey to me.  We have a whole freeze full of deer that the hubs makes when I am not home.
Onions, I don’t like them raw. I hate them. I can eat them when they are cooked into something, but raw? No thank you!

{5} What's one thing that you love to eat that most people would think is weird and/or gross??
I can’t think of anything out of the norm. I love sushi, but so do all of my friends.  Maybe in some areas of the country the fact that I eat Maryland Crabs might gross people out.  My friend, Becky from Colorado hates watching us pick up crabs, because you see the intestines, the mustard (the poop), and other parts of the crab.  I just eat the crab meat itself, but if a little mustard is on a piece I don’t wash it off.  I know some people do, but I don’t  I think it gives it flavor!

I promise I will write an actual post soon! I have lots of pictures from our weekend trip!  Link up with Mamarazzi and Queso if you want to join in on this week’s We Want To Know Wednesday.

At last, someone else who hate raw onions. I can do them cooked in things but raw or plain sauted like with potatoes? No thank you.

It's not that I won't eat onions but if a sandwich or burger comes with them, I most definitely ask for the to be removed. And I love cinnamon toast!

Brussel sprouts are vile little balls of evil. We love buffalo chicken flavored things like pasta salad and pizza as long as they don't have ranch dressing, and your tortellini salad sounds great (do you have the recipe posted somewhere? I have met very few pastas I don't like and tortellini is a particular fave). Never heard of let alone had pretzel salad can't even imagine what that might be.

I'm with you, I HAVE to have caffeine every day or a horrid headache occurs. My hubs loves Buffalo Chicken Dip too! It's so fun & easy for parties! I will say, I tried brussel sprouts pan fried with balsamic vinegar & bacon-so good. Normally I hate it.
