Quiz: Let's Eat!

07 August 2008

I really felt like doing a meme today, so I wandered over to Toni's blog because I know she's been tagged with some good ones. I chose this one that she made up herself because I haven't had breakfast yet, and I'm hungry!

Feel free to do it too. If you do, let me know in the comments so I can read your favourite eats too!

1. Favorite Comfort Food
Ichiban instant noodles... warm, salty, with just the right amount of MSG for the mind-numbing headaches... but still, yeah, it's my go-to dish when I'm feeling blue.

2. Favorite Breakfast Meal
Fried eggs with garlic fried rice and a sprinkling of soy sauce... buttered pandesal on the side... reminds me of breakfast at my grandmother's house in Bicol... and green tea...

3. Favorite Lunch Meal
Definitely sushi... or sashimi... served in a black plastic boat that takes over the entire table... and enough wasabi to clear the sinuses... glass of water...

4, Favorite Dinner Meal
Deep-fried calamari dipped in tzatziki with a side of caesar salad... glass of water... and a nice cup of decaf cappucino at the end.

5. Favorite Dessert
Pavlova... must have strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries... without that, it's just crap... sweet, sweet tasty crap...

6. Favorite Cake
Mocha mud pie... I know it's called a pie, but it is a cake through and through

7. Favorite Pasta
Angel hair with a simple tomato-basil sauce... I'm totally with Toni on this one! simple and tasty...

8. Favorite Dish That Others Find Weird
Rice with ketchup has very few fans... too bad... it's a weird and tasty food... when all you can afford is rice and a few ketchup packets...

9. Favorite Fruits That You Haven’t Eaten In A While
I'll also say durian, papaya, dragonfruit, and lichee (the nut that masquerades as a fruit)... guess I really am an island girl...

10. Favorite Junkfood
Barbecue flavoured chips... with a rootbeer chaser...

11. Favorite TV Show Related to Food (Cooking show, Travel show with food, etc.)
I love travel-food shows! they are my favourite... David Rocco's La Dolce Vita... but I think that's been canceled though... so I'll also mention Rachel Ray's Tasty Travels... pretty much any travel show on FoodTV

12. Favorite Pastries
Fruit in phyllo pastry and butter tarts...

13. Favorite Way to Eat Potatoes
baked... with a generous dollop of butter, green onion, and sour cream

14. Favorite Ice Cream
Mint Chocolate Chip

15. Favorite Alcoholic Drink When You Really Really Really Want to Party
I don't drink anymore, but I used to love Singapore Slings... sweet, fruity with a nice buzz

16. Favorite Bar Chow
Poutine, which could also double as junkfood... tasty, evil junkfood...

17. Favorite Chicken Dish
Piccata... I don't eat the chicken pieces, but the sauce is awesome on rice or pasta... lemon, butter, and capers...

18. Favorite Place to Eat with Your Sweetheart or Your Best Friend (Choose 1)
Alycia's on McGregor with my Sweetheart... it's where we had our 2nd date... pan-fried perogies, holobchi, and the best borscht in town... very relaxed place, like someone's livingroom...

19. Favorite Place to Eat with your Family
Skinner's in Lockport... the best diner EVER... we went there on Roomie's birthday last year, and it was so much fun! It's a short drive out of town with a lot of historical sites in the area... enjoyable place to visit in the summer.

20. Fill in the blanks: I wish I could eat ____ in/at _____ with ______.
"I wish I could eat croissants at a cafe in Paris with Roomie."
(yes, I said croissants... don't faint.)

Wow, so much to think about here....

- butter and sour cream on your potato? Redundant and decadent. I'll bet you also put bacon on your ham sandwich! :-)

- are you sure lychees are nuts? Google doesn't seem to think so. Unless you're eating the seeds?

- if you want better perogies than Alycia's (to take home only) drop me a line and I'll let you in on the secret of St Ivan and the perogy club!

- re: Skinners, I thought you had a peanut allergy in the family? You might want to be careful there, when I asked them a few years ago they said they couldn't guarantee a nut-free meal. Once my daughter (allergic to peanuts) had a reaction after eating a hot dog at a school BBQ (and that's all she had, a hot dog and milk brought from home) so obviously some wieners or buns can be contaminated.

- favourite cooking show? Has to be Celebrity Chefs with Bruno Gerussi! If they could air those episodes again they'd make a mint... if anyone remembers who Avery Schrieber or Joyce Brothers was... I remember seeing David Letterman on there making spinach fettuccine.

You know I love those ichaban noodles too! It's a comfort thing. Sometimes I add bok choy in it! YUMMMM

Toni said...

I'm intrigued with those Ichiban noodles!

Wow berry pavlova! Haven't tried that ever I think.

Rice with ketchup? I do find it a little weird. Heehee.

I love La Dolce Vita! He's fun to watch and his food look so fresh and yummy.

1. Favorite Comfort Food
I don't generally eat for comfort. I sometimes insist on Mr H picking up pate for me to snack on with bread, but rarely finish a pkg w/o tossing it.

2. Favorite Breakfast Meal
Bacon & Eggs, toast & coffee. It's my favourite to *eat*, but we often have waffles as a family breakfast & that's probably my favourite *meal*.

3. Favorite Lunch Meal
mmm... sushi

4, Favorite Dinner Meal
mmm... sushi. It's (dinner & lunch) been known to happen in the same day.

5. Favorite Dessert
Not big on dessert, but a nice, *light* cheesecake (cherry) I like

6. Favorite Cake
my family chocolate cake recipe

7. Favorite Pasta
a plain but flavourful tomato sauce

8. Favorite Dish That Others Find Weird
Nothing crazy. I used to, when alone, make a big whack of spagetti & eat it with only butter & salt. When I was much younger, my parents would FREAK and that made me think it was weird. DH will also get the willies if he sees me eating Alphagetti or cheese slices, but that's not really weird (gross, maybe) & doesn't happen very often anyway.

9. Favorite Fruits That You Haven’t Eaten In A While
fresh ontario peaches... soon...

10. Favorite Junkfood
doritos

11. Favorite TV Show Related to Food (Cooking show, Travel show with food, etc.)
Good Eats. I don't think it's on any more

12. Favorite Pastries
napoleon

13. Favorite Way to Eat Potatoes
I'm starting to realize that I don't like potatoes very much. That said, I still have to decide that I'm NOT going to order fries with my Fat Boy at the local burger joint before I walk in & smell them.

14. Favorite Ice Cream
Chocolate

15. Favorite Alcoholic Drink When You Really Really Really Want to Party
Depends on the occasion. Mr H makes a mean slushy drink & I can end up really, really really wanting to party when I didn't initially intend on it!

16. Favorite Bar Chow
nachos

17. Favorite Chicken Dish
mmm... picatta's good. Mr H does that one up nice too. We haven't had it in a while... I'll have to mention it.

18. Favorite Place to Eat with Your Sweetheart or Your Best Friend (Choose 1)
Don't have to choose one. It's the same place for both! Wasabi

19. Favorite Place to Eat with your Family
Around my dining table (or my folks')

20. Fill in the blanks: I wish I could eat ____ in/at _____ with ______.
I wish I could eat Fish & Chips in London with my DH & kids.
