Another week, another link up with Ashley and Neely for The Sunday Social. This week's topic is one of my favorites... food!
1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
For a girl who loves food, this one is pretty hard to answer. For the rest of my life? Uhhh... fruit. I know, I know, it's kind of cheating but it's my blog and I make the rules. Haha!
Seriously thought, I could do a lot with fruit and it would satisfy my sweet tooth. Kind of.
2. What's your guilty pleasure/comfort food?
Dr. Pepper fountain drink with crushed/Sonic ice (not from a can, eww)
huge caramel Frappucinos from Starbs
If you can get it at a movie theater, I'm all over that.
3. What's the weirdest/craziest thing you've ever eaten?
Rattlesnake. I don't recommend it and I have an intense phobia of snakes.
Sidenote: If you live in Austin or plan on visiting, go visit Hudson's on the Bend. The food is excellent, they love wine, and they're always cooking up interesting meats.
4. What foods do you avoid at all costs?
Really fatty cuts of red meat. I love steak. I crave red meat. But I like it medium rare and super lean. I know that the fat gives it flavor, but I cannot stomach chewing on it. B on the other hand will gladly eat the chunks of fat that I cut off from my steaks.
5. What meal reminds you of your childhood?
Mustgoes! At our grandmother's house, whenever she needed the fridge cleaned out of leftovers and small amounts of food, it all got heated up and set out. We filled our plates with whatever was there because Grandmother said, "It must go!" Whatever wasn't eaten that night was thrown out.
Or breakfast for dinner. Always a winner in our house!
6. Share one of your favorite recipes and the story behind it.
Confession: I don't cook really. I can grill up some veggies or make a mean quesadilla, but I just don't have a huge interest in cooking. Plus, B and I have pretty opposite schedules during the school year (i.e. he is teaching and coaching until 9pm). I don't know about you guys, but I think it's hard to cook for just yourself and I usually buy more food than I need so it gets thrown out before I can use it. And that is money in the garbage.
Cait's Famous Bomb Ass Salad
feta cheese or blue cheese
hardboiled eggs (sliced)
carrots (sliced, shredded, or baby)
red pepper, sliced
Make sure everything is washed. Slice and dice things to your pleasing. Toss in a bowl. Drizzle with Briannas Blush Wine Vinaigrette. Impress everyone you know.
You can also add shredded chicken, if you're feeling adventurous.
Can't wait to see what delicious recipes you've all got!
