From The Face....

Readers:  Please go HERE if you would like to see other entries to this fun meme...

1.   Ever had ramen noodles? How do you fix yours? Do you add anything to them? 
 I have,  and I love them.  I cook them first in water, drain, and put them in a vegetable broth with some shredded carrots, and shredded greens, flavored with soy sauce and toasted sesame seed oil.  I also do Udon noodles this way.  I throw away the packaged spices if we can't find the plain pack noodles.

2.   Do you like spicy foods?
I love them, but they don't love me anymore.  So, I don't eat anything spicy

3.   Crispy or grilled chicken on your salad?

4.   Do you like corn on the cob?
I do

5.   Pumpkin or apple pie?
Both.  One's a custard pie, and one is a fruit pie. It would be rude and sort of Un-American of me to not like them both. 

6.   Dinner rolls or crescent rolls?
They are both bread.  I'll eat whatever anyone ELSE wants to bring.  At home, I would make Croissant, the real crescent rolls.

7.   How do you like your eggs?
I like them cooked. 

8.   Most expensive meal you have ever eaten?
Seafood, when I was still able to eat it.

9.   Do you like stir fry?
I love it.

10.  What kind of pots and pans do you use?
We have a couple of woks, and normal french cooking sorts of pots and pans and some Iron fry pans, plus some non-stick fry pans.

11.   Do you like Brussel sprouts?
Yes, I do like them.  One of my favorites.

12.   Canned or fresh tomatoes?
Each has their place in my cooking.  As I started young with my mother on her little farm, I've canned about a gazillion on them, too.  But not lately.  I love to make pasta al pomodoro with just fresh tomato, a little olive oil, tiny chop of fresh basil, and some of the pasta cooking water.  Very good stuff.

13.   BBQ Chicken or Ribs?
Grilled chicken at home.  We don't like BBQ sauce, and don't eat the Piggies unless from Chipotlé.  Sorry.

14.   Do you like coffee?
I still love the smell of it brewing.  Sadly, I can no longer drink it.

15.   Cupcakes or ice cream cake?
This is America!  We can like both things, yes?  So I will... Both..

16.   Hot dogs or polish sausage?
Polish sausage. But see #13.  Regular Hot dogs give me the willies.

17.   Do you like cinnamon toast?
I love the stuff and never eat it.  I should do that, and soon.  But you didn't ask about Cinnamon French Toast.  That's crazy good!

18.   Do you eat dinner at the table or in front of the TV?
Always at the table.  It's sort of a unspoken commitment we made.

19.   Do you like to BBQ?
I like to grill but don't like BBQ sauce anymore. So, I guess that's a No?

20.   Do you like cold cuts?
We don't eat them. and I don't like them.

21.   Do you like rice?
I love rice.

22.   Macaroni and cheese?
I love mac and cheese.

23.   Key Lime Pie?
Yes, I like all sorts of fruit and savory pies.

24.   Favorite Fair/Carnival Food?
Those Giant Cinnamon Rolls but it's been years since I've had one.

25.   What kind of gravy do you like?
Drippings Gravies, except that gray stuff.  I can't manage to eat it, over biscuits or any other way.

26.   Jalapeno Poppers?
Truly loved them back in the day.

27.   Broccoli/Chicken Alfredo?
Never had it.  Probably not ever going to either.  I do like Broccoli and Chicken but not mixed together.

28.   Do you like cottage cheese?
29.   Do you like lasagna?
Yes, the meatless stuff we make. 

30.   Do you like hard boiled eggs?
Yes, I like them and eat one several times a week. 

 I don't eat most of these foods away from home though.  Yes, I am a Brass Plated Pill.. I admit it.


  1. Hi Zippi! I like all different kinds of pie too...not a fan of key lime, but I love a lot of pies.
    It is funny you should mention not liking BBQ sauce. I do like BBQ, but they try to change up sauces all of the time and I like the regular sauce from when I was a kid...maybe it was Kraft.
    Loved your answers! Have a great day!

    1. I know what you mean about the key lime pie. It's really a STRONG flavor. And BBQ sauce tastes nice it just doesn't like me at all anymore. Teriyaki is something I can still have.
      Hope you have a lovely week, Lori. 🤙

  2. I have issues with any kind of "tube" meat if I let myself think about it. I know things have changed, but when I was in school I had a teacher that made us read a book about the meat packing industry during the time the unions were coming in. It's always in the back of my mind how they got rid of their enemies. ((((shudder))))
    I love that you still eat at the table. I was surprised how many of us don't and that makes me sad. My dad INSISTED we all sit down to dinner together and if someone had to leave or would be home late, dinner was adjusted so we still ate together. I did that when the kids were young, but as time passed Tim's job got him home later and later so the kids and I started eating and after our son went off to college I gave up. Well, now that I've made myself all sad... Have a great day, Zippi!

    1. I remember that book. It was required reading for me also. Nowadays, Upton Sinclair could work for any modern day environmental agency but the meat industry tried to smear him as a "Muckracker", which he was NOT! Gah.. and yes. They really cleaned up after that but it's still not so pretty. There are still exposés written about the meat industry, and they deserve them! Pink Slime? UGH!
      And now for something completely different: There is something companionable about eating together off trays and informally, too. It's just a personal preference, if kids aren't around. We still like to talk at dinner. And neither of us likes TV that much, so we sit and chat over dinner.
      Hope you have a lovely week, and good experiences driving the brats.. I mean children around the county! lol "Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it fear". Hugs!

  3. "I like them cooked." Kind of straight to the point there with the eggs question. Loved it!

    1. I was trying to figure out what sorts I liked and every sort was in the A column. Glad you thought it was fun. I really do love eggs, as long as they are cooked, and I miss whipped egg whites, even. Dang. Who knew modern man could actually screw up the poor little egg layers?
