I'm feeling the need for a random question post. I kind of miss not doing food posts right at the moment so, help me out...
1) What's the strangest thing you've ever eaten? Did you like it?
Hm, I'm having a hard time with this one. Probably raw oysters and I didn't like it and I had a reaction to it. So yeah, won't have them again. I've also eaten swordfish - I believe it was also raw - a carpacio (sp?) preparation.
2) Have you created anything new in the kitchen or tried a new recipe? How was it?
I wish I could say I've created more than I have lately. Tonight I made a tomato, vegetable, beef dish which was a one-dish meal. It was good - ground beef, green beans, potatoes, carrots, onions, corn, fresh herbs, tomato sauce, salt, and pepper. Last night, I made a black bean salad which turned out pretty well but would have been better if there were fresh limes at my house. :)
3) What is your least favorite food flavor?
I'm totally with Jenna on this one...ANISE. Hands down. Can't stand it - not even a little and I've tried it many times. I don't even like fennel. Interestingly, my husband was raised on anise flavored things and really likes it. I let his mom bake those cookies. :)
4) What food inspires you the most?
Definitely fresh foods. I think herbs, berries, and cheese inspire me the most. They make me want to create deliciousness. Even a simple fresh fruit salad can be inspiring to me.
Anyway, answer any or all. I've changed my menu planning just a bit, so I'm planning a post on how that is working for me. For today, this will have to do. :) I'm hoping for a few new ideas or inspiration!
