Happy first day of school to me! The first day always goes by extremely quick, and the rest of the afternoon (it’s a half day for the kids) is spent in meetings and running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to prepare things for the next upcoming days. Because of that, I wanted to keep things nice and light/fun this morning. A few weeks ago, I saw this fun survey over by Ashley’s blog, and I thought it would be fun to answer the same questions she did all about food preferences!
Mexican or Italian?
That’s a no brainer — Mexican food! I do love Italian, but since going gluten free I’ve found eating Mexican food is one of the easiest cuisines to eat when I go out. Bring on the guacamole and refried beans. Authentic = the best!
Chips or Fries?
Any kind of potato is a good thing in my book. If given the choice though, I’d probably go for fries — especially oven baked sweet potato fries!
Almond Butter or Peanut Butter?
If you would have asked me that eight months ago, I would have said hands down peanut butter. I used to be an almond butter hater, which makes me sad for my all time favorite nut. However, I’ve found that some almond butters just aren’t for me. I like making my own almond butter to get the perfect roasted flavor for me (not too dark!) and process it to my desired smoothness (not too drippy, but drippy enough — did that even make sense?).
I’m an almond butter convert. I make a jar a week!
Cake or Brownie?
I’d probably pick cake just because I love frosting. My all time favorite cake is red velvet with cream cheese frosting. I’ve never attempted to make that one gluten free/dairy free before, and I don’t think I could ever perfect it. If anyone thinks they can, please tell me and send me one.
Strawberries or Blueberries?
Blueberries. I’ll definitely eat strawberries if they’re there, but it’s the one berry I’m not really too fond of. I couldn’t tell you why.
Thin crust pizza or Deep Dish Pizza?
I’m going to turn away all of my Chicago readers right now and say thin crust. I like my crust thin so I can load on the toppings — the crust is really just a vehicle to get the veggies/sauce into my mouth anyway.
Coffee or Tea?
Ugh. Can we stop reminding me about coffee? I <3 coffee. Love it. Don’t know what I would do without it. We’ve been trying to break up for the last two years and it’s just not working. I just love a good cup of joe!!!
Chicken or Steak?
Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate?
I am a definite dark chocolate lover, but I certainly do not discriminate!
Apple or Orange?
Apple — there’s nothing like biting into a perfectly ripened crisp apple in the fall. They’re the best!
Question: You pick one!
