My kids' friends think they're *weird* because they eat hot curries, sushi, Thai food, etc. at ages 4 and 7. Don't get me wrong, they love a good Happy Meal as much as the next swine swilling tot, but they would eat sushi over it on any day (depending on the toy, of course). I love excellent microbrews and good red wine. Don't get me started on chocolate, esp. this week (sorry, guys). I could go on ....
Irish Breakfast on yet another rainy morning. Ugh.
Yep...rainy chilly day here as well. Strange Spring, or is this a normal one and we just have not had one for so long I forgot.
I see a sushi topic coming to a forum near you.
I love to cook and although I belonged to a gourmet club for several years, I would not claim to be a gourmet cook. Using minimal and premium ingredients is my MO. A favorite of mine is sea scallops (dry)MMMMM.
Although I personally do not drink alcohol, I do EAT it, I enjoy using wine, bourbon, dry sherry and even occasionally some beer when I cook. I recently went through a cajun stage. This gets away from my prefered method of cooking...throw everything you can find in a pot and cook, but sooo good. There are a lot of hunters in my extended family, so venison is always available which is great in cajun.
My favorite all time cooking show was the original Iron Chef. That show was more about entertainment than instruction, but it was certainly inspiring!
Dark Chocolate...again simple. I prefer it plain or with a simple nut. Almonds are my fav combo with dark chocolate. I have a small piece or two almost every day. Moderation is key for almost everything but tea for me.
Sushi...love it, could eat it everyday. I dabble in making my own, but I am not there yet. Ethnic cuisine is so appealing, but never seem to get this one done.
An intense piece of fruit...ok, I this poll is tooooo much.
If you read my profile...it says I love to eat. I should weigh about the same as a filled fridge, but I am quite active and get to eat A LOT. I will try almost anything once.
