That's a lot to do but I can't wait. So anyways let's get started for what really matters because as we know Sunday means it's
Here are this week's questions:
1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Gosh this is hard! I think I would have to say either Lou Malnati's pizza (if you're from Chicago you know what I'm talking about- if you're not from Chicago then you're missing out!!) or Portillo's Chopped Salad. Yummy!!!!
2. What's your guilty pleasure/comfort food?
Ugh I have such a sweet tooth- to me a meal isn't complete unless you have dessert Shh! Don't tell my trainers this but I would have to say my guilty pleasure is Sprinkle Cupcakes! We just got one in Chicago about two years ago and thank god I don't live in the city or work in the city because I think I would go there everyday. However here are some photos of a recent trip there:
3. What's the weirdest/craziest thing you've ever eaten?
I'm not one to be a big risk taker when it comes to food, I like to know what I'm eating and I always have to smell my food if I'm unsure about it or if it's new. I guess though the craziest thing I've ever eaten- well took a couple of bites was when I was in Australia and I had a ostrich burger. I did not like it. And we tried Kangaroo- it tasted like chicken but considering I was just hanging out with Kangaroo's hours before out of the goodness of my heart I couldn't bear to eat it all.
4. What meal reminds you of your childhood?
I don't have one specific meal but I would say Sunday dinners remind me of my childhood. My parents were divorced but my mother being the wonderful woman she is always made a full 5 course meal every Sunday night so we could have family night with my dad. I know cherish those dinners because I lost my dad when I was 12 and it meant a lot to me that they were willing to put their differences aside to have a family dinner with my once a week.
5. Share one of your favorite recipes and the story behind it:
I don't have a story behind this other than a good friend of mine who I met at none other but the gym sent me this recipe because she knew I was handicap when it came to cooking and the kitchen, and let me tell ya it is a easy recipe!
