This is just a post about stuff I love. For the record, I am not Oprah, so I will not be giving any of it away. Sorry! I don't have a giveaway section on my blog -- I'm still a newbie at this, you know!
I love chai tea. I steep it three times longer than you're supposed to, but what can I say? I like strong tea. I have tried umpteen varieties of herbal teas, but my preference is black chai. With two packets of Sun Crystals and, if I'm home, a splash of half and half. Mmmmm...
I love popcorn. With real butter and salt, please. I don't like the yellow sludge that is in the bag of microwave popcorn, mostly because I'm not sure what it is.
I love sushi. Sushi rolls with shrimp, salmon, tuna or eel. With lots of wasabi. And, if they have avocado in them, I've died and gone to heaven!
Speaking of avocado, I love guacamole! In fact, I sometimes make it and eat it without chips. Then it's avocado salad :)
I love dried cranberries. Especially in white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. De-li-scious!
I love spicy food. In fact, when I make tacos for the fam, I separate out my meat and double-spice it. I always put red pepper flakes on my pizza, and have begun using them on ravioli and lasagna. Tasty!
I love custards, puddings, and especially creme brulee. I love them even more when someone makes them for me. I'm not a baked goods person, so I can pass up cakes, cookies, and pies. Although I do love icing, so I'll eat the cake or cookie to get that. But there's something about cracking the caramelized sugar on top of a creme brulee...
My guilty pleasure? I love bacon. Crispy and patted so some of the fat is gone. But, yeah, I love bacon.
Is there any wonder why I'm fat??
