Life of a Blogger | Food

April 10, 2014 Life of a Blogger 10

Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat. Each week Jessi chooses a topic (scheduled in advance) that’s not book related so we that we can get to know our fellow bloggers better – and to know more about them than just books. I’m thrilled to join in and I hope to participate every week from here on out. I hope you’ll join in too – check out the details here!

This week’s topic: Food

I love a variety of foods and my mood shifts constantly. I’m not a very good cook though, I’m definitely more of a baker and recipe follower than an intuitive cook. Good thing my boyfriend is an AMAZING cook. He’s from Mexico and cooks the best authentic Mexican dishes, all without a recipe. He just KNOWS what a dish needs.

Mexican is one of my favorite cuisines. I’m also a huge fan of Italian and Pizza – those probably because my boyfriend hates both (I know… what’s wrong with him?!). It means I don’t get them very often and it’s always a treat when I do.

My all-time favorite food is Chicken Wings. I know, weird favorite food, but I’ve loved chicken wings since I was 2 years old. Funny story there – my parents were having chicken wings and I kept reaching for them. They finally decided to give me a little, so I’d know I didn’t want it – since it was super spicy. Well, that backfired, because spicy or not, I wanted them! And since then I’ve been constantly trying spicier and spicier wings. Although last year I did one of those wing challenges at a restaurant in St. Louis. The wings won and it was not pretty for about 24 hours.

As for food I don’t like – liver, gizzards, kidney… you get the idea. If it makes me shiver to think of eating it, I won’t try it. I used to really hate seafood, but I’ve started liking some things. I love sushi and recently had crab and liked it. I’ll keep trying things, but I don’t like the seriously fishy fish.

What’s foods do you like or dislike?

    I love Mexican as well, Berls. And Italian…and pizza. I’m not a fan of chicken wings though. I can’t explain. šŸ™‚ I also will not eat ANY seafood. I’ve tried and tried and tried because my hubby LOVES it. Eh, at least my kids will eat it with him because I can’t. šŸ™‚

      I used to be a no seafood girl myself. We went on this one vacation when I was a little girl to cape cod and my family went to seafood restaurant after seafood restaurant. I spent that trip eating spaghetti with meatballs LOL! I’ve grown to like it now though, to a limited extent.

    I like most foods as long as they aren’t too spicy. Not a fan of the spicy stuff. I can cook, I just don’t like to. I don’t mind baking though. My favorite food? I’d have to say a medium-rare steak though bacon comes a close second. Or maybe a chicken quesadilla with sour cream and guacamole. Nomnomnom! And I like fish, but definitely not if it’s too fishy. Tilapia is a good choice as is mahi mahi. I can’t stand sushi though.

      Man, now I’m feeling really hungry all of a sudden! Wonder why? LOL I totally love the spicy stuff though and Sushi is a fav šŸ˜‰ but I don’t like fishy fish. Bacon sounds really good right now, though.

    Every friday night my husband comes home from delivering pizza and brings us chicken wings and cheesy french fries. It’s my FAVORITE. I love sitting with him eating and chatting even, I look forward to it šŸ™‚

    I am not a fan of gizzards or liver and I do not eat sushi

    I love Mexican too. I’m not a vegetarian, but my husband is, and Mexican is one of the few safe bets food-wise when you have a vegetarian with you. Good thing I love it, right? And pizza is the PERFECT food. I’m pretty sure. BUT I’m not a fan of chicken wings. Mostly b/c most wing sauce has vinegar in it, and for some reason the smell of vinegar . . . I just can’t handle it. I didn’t even like dying Easter eggs when I was a kid b/c of the vinegar smell. How’s THAT for weird, LOL.

    Know what else is really good? Indian food. LOVE it!

      I love chicken wings, but it’s because I have a thing for spicy food. And yes, pizza has to be the perfect food. Man… I’m seriously considering order a pizza right now. Even though it’s 2:30 in the afternoon and not even close to meal time. Not to mention my plan to eat healthy. LOL
