Things I Love: Food

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??

Okay...I just read this and couldn't help but tell you that it freaks me out how much we enjoy the same things.

Chai tea is my Favorite! I love to steep it extra long too and sometimes I'm guilty of splashing some half n' half with a dash of cinnamon with it.

I love to eat Sushi! I'll eat nearly any type too.

I'm obsessed with avocados and sometimes just cut one open and eat it with a spoon. I actually ate that for lunch yesterday...YUM!

I'll eat dried cranberries in everything! Cookies, breads, rice pilaf, salad, oatmeal, cereal, etc...

Well just thought I'd pop in and tell you that!

I like these same things!

Bruce introduced me to a heart attack inducing delicacy: peanut butter and bacon sandwiches. OMG! The bacon has to be extra crispy.
