Sunday Social, Week 60

Welcome to another week of Sunday Social, with Ashley Lately and A Complete Waste of Make-Up, one of my most favorite times of week.  This is my final kick-off before “Family Vacation”!  I’ll still be around, but may not reply to comments as fast.  See ya in about two weeks!!

Sunday Social

This weeks is all about food – however I was totally bummed to have missed out on last weeks “All About TV” questions.  Darn it.  But I love food, so it’s not all bad now is it.

1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?

oh man, I’ve been asked this question before and I always have a hard time.  I think if I could have a dinner plate from The Cracker Barrel I would be one happy lady…however I don’t know that that would be the healthiest option, but hey…

2. What is your guilty pleasure/comfort food?

I feel like I should just say, ie: see above.  LOL!  I love some good ‘ole home-cooked meals.   I’m a Southern Girl at heart.

3. What’s the weirdest/craziest thing you’ve eaten?

Definitely calamari!  I’m not a super adventurous eater.  No frog legs or cow’s tongue or anything like that.  But I did eat friend calamari…take note of the word “fried”, LOL.  I don’t think I actually tasted the calamari part.

4.  What foods to you avoid at all costs?

chunks…chunks of tomato, onion, pickles…and the like.  I am, however, an awesome picker-outer of the chunks.

5. What meal reminds you of your childhood?

Strangely enough you would think it would be one of those homecooked meals you hear about.  But actually the thing that reminds me most of my childhood is my dad’s homemade pizza.  It’s basically famous and he made it all the time.  He would make it for parties, for guests, I would request it for my birthday.  It’s good stuff man.  You haven’t lived until you’ve had my dad’s homemade pizza.  Yummy!!  Love you daddy.

6. Share one of your favorite recipes and the story behind it.

Well, that’s another hard question…I think I might have to share with you one of the recipes from the good ‘ole Better Homes and Garden, red and white cookbook.  I have my grandmother’s and my mom has been cooking out of it for forever.  I’m not sure any of our mom’s didn’t get one when they got married.  And they probably remember their moms using one as well.  If you ever get a chance to pick one up, it is so awesome, in all of it’s old fashioned glory!!!  This recipe is one my mom is practically an ace at.  She doesn’t even read the recipe anymore.  This pie has garnered some notoriety, and everyone always requests it from her.

Perfect Apple Pie
