Food meme!

*Before I start, I have a question for you. A visitor who arrived at my site as a result of a search e-mailed me and said it was “so busy” it took a long time to load. I don’t have a problem with it loading on my computer except that the header picture sometimes take an extra couple of seconds to show. I do use Mozilla Firefox to view web pages, don’t know if that makes a difference. If my blog takes a long time to load for you, would you let me know? Thanks. 🙂


I saw this food meme at Melli’s, and, food being one of my favorite things, I borrowed it from her. 🙂

1. How do you like your eggs?

Most often scrambled, but occasionally I like a ham and cheese omelet or a fried egg on toast sandwich.

2. How do you take your coffee/tea?

I have to have everything decaf due to a heart rhythm problem.
Coffee: decaf with creamer (preferably the non-dairy powdered kind).
Tea: decaf, iced, unsweetened. I don’t like hot tea.

3. Favorite breakfast food?


4. Peanut butter – smooth or crunchy?


5. What kind of dressing on your salad?


6. Coke or Pepsi?

Diet decaf Pepsi

7. You’re feeling lazy, what do you make?

Some kind of sandwich or something on English muffins (tuna or ham topped with cheese, toasted in oven til cheese melts).

8. You’re feeling really lazy. What kind of pizza do you order?

I like pepperoni and sausage, a couple of my sons like ground beef and extra cheese, so we order one of each.

9. You feel like cooking. What do you make?

Oh, it depends. Spaghetti and lasagna are family favorites.

10. Do any foods bring back good memories?

This will sound really strange to some, but my mom made a spam casserole that a comfort food to me. Also when my dad was away Mom would make a simple meal of hot dogs cut up into tomato sauce with macaroni and cheese as a side dish.

11. Do any foods bring back bad memories?

Once at an aunt’s house she made me stay at the table all night until I ate the green stuff on my plate. I think it was spinach, maybe turnip greens. They made me gag.

12. Is there a food you refuse to eat?

Liver, oysters.

13. What was your favorite food as a child?

Steak fingers. There was one drive-up restaurant (like Sonic’s) we went to often, and that’s what I’d always get there

14. Is there a food that you hated as a child but now like?

I don’t remember hating broccoli and cauliflower as a child — I don’t remember ever having them as a child — but I had them for the first time in college and didn’t care for them. I earned to like them smothered in cheese sauce. 🙂 Then once when trying to lose weight I learned to like them without cheese sauce.

15. Is there a food that you liked as a child but now hate?

Not that I can think of.

16. Favorite fruit and vegetable?

Fruit — probably bananas or red delicious apples.
Vegetables — corn or broccoli

17. Favorite junk food?

Any chocolate chip cookie or Swiss cake rolls

18. Favorite between meal snack?

Chocolate chip cookies or chips

19. Do you have any weird food habits?

Not that I can think of. I used to eat hot cereals with salt and pepper rather than sugar. That garnered me some strange looks in college. Then I discovered I like them with brown sugar.

20. You’re on a diet. What food(s) do you fill up on?

Carrot sticks or grapes.

21 . You’re off your diet. Now what would you like?

The favorite junk foods listed above. 🙂

22. How spicy do you order Indian/Thai?

As mild as I can get it. I’ve only had Thai once and didn’t like it, but I have liked the Indian food I’ve tried.

23. Can I get you a drink?

Decaf unsweetened iced tea or decaf diet Pepsi, please.

24. Red wine or white?

Neither, thank you.

25. Favorite dessert?

Devil’s food cake with chocolate fudge frosting

26. The perfect nightcap?

I don’t drink alcohol. I usually have a few swigs of iced tea before bed.

Feel free to borrow this, too, and let me know if you do.

  1. LOL! I never noticed the numerical mix-up on this one! Usually I AM the one to notice things like that and set them straight! Good thing we have you this time!!!

    I went through a “grits” phase when I was a kid — grits for breakfast – and I always ate them with butter, salt and pepper. But oatmeal has to be sweet — and I don’t DO Cream of Wheat at all… Blech!

    And your page loads fine for me… (just sayin’)

  2. Hi Barbara! Your page loads fine for me and I have DIAL-UP! I mean, it takes a little time, of course, but considering, it does great!!! I’m doing this meme on my blog!!! *smile* I just love your blog!

  3. I am using FF and your page loads fine for me (some others do not!!) I am stealing this meme from Melli too 🙂
    I drink diet coke and love eggs.
    Thanks for the wonderful bday wishes, you all made my day !

  4. My mom made a Spam thing with pineapple on it, almost like a ham. My husband loves Spam. I simply can’t stand it, but really, I should make him a Spam ham, he likes it so much.

    I’ve notice for the last couple of weeks that everywhere I go, it’s suddenly taking forever to load people’s pages. I had so many email about it, I’ve pretty much deleted my whole sidebar in a effort to speed it up. Honestly? I’ll bet you it’s a blogger thing.

    I never had this much trouble with almost all the blogs I follow, until recently, so I’m betting it’s not your blog design or structure. I hope we’re not getting ready to have all those old blogger problems again!

  5. Thanks for your comment. It was encouraging to hear you think I eat rather healthy. A lot of people assume that because I’m a big girl that I eat junk… that just goes to show that it’s the effects of my PCOS and that more people need to be made aware of the effects of such diseases. (For more on this see the PCOS section of my blog.)

    I truly appreciated your comment. And this was a fun Meme to participate in.
