Crazymama is asking the questions this week. She says, “It’s standardized testing week here and in an attempt to send the herd out the door with a full belly I’ve made hot breakfast for them. So I’m on a food kick.”
1. What is your favorite go to breakfast recipe for special occasions or company?
I don’t have special occasions. However, I love to make breakfast for dinner. I affectionately call it B4D. In that case I make something my mom calls “Salvation Army Casserole.” I think the story is that she got the recipe from my grandmother who would assemble and bake them for the Salvation Army to feed to the people who came in for food. It’s just eggs, milk, Bisquick and spices blended for a minute then poured over sausage and cheese in a casserole dish. It reheats pretty good, too.
2. What is your policy for kids that don’t want to eat what you are serving?
Don’t eat it, but I’m not cooking anything else. It works for husbands, too. 🙂
3. Do you take treats to neighbors? What kind?
Not often. If I do it’s at holiday time. Essentially these are cookies, candies and cakes (It’s a food group in my family. Started as the 3Cs, but grew to 4 as we needed a place for ice cream). I love to bake, but I’m the only one eating the stuff so… Mostly I bake and take stuff to work. They will even eat my experiments.
4. What is your most used spice in your cupboard? (Besides salt or pepper)
Vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. It’s sad. I don’t really care to cook. I like to bake. This means my regular food isn’t satisfying, and everything else should be eaten in moderation. What’s a girl to do?
5. What is your favorite fruit ? Do you have a Fave veggie?
Wow. Hard question. I could more easily answer this with what DON’T I like. I would say my favorite fruits are berries — raspberries in particular. My favorite veggie, based on actual consumption, would be carrots. However, I eat a lot of green beans and broccoli as well.
Really I just don’t like zucchini and summer squash, eggplant, or papaya. The rest is pretty much worth eating
6. It was tax day here in the US. Did you get a return? How do you spend it?
We get a return, but I’ve never seen it. 😛 Any money given back goes straight to the principal on our house loan. I think we’re down to about 2 more years of payments, and it will be ours. I credit this all to my husband because he’s the fiscally responsible one. I’d just spend the return on Diet Pepsi, Starbucks, and books for the classroom — you know, junkie behavior.
