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?
