Food Survey

I recently came across one of those food surveys over on Laura’s blog. As I love talking about food, obviously, I decided to answer the questions, too.

Breakfast Sandwiches


1. Favorite cereal as a child?

I’ve never been a cereal fan. I’ve tried a few as a child, but always returned to bread.

2. Coffee or tea? With milk or without?

I have both almost every day, but a little more coffee than tea. And I like both plain, no milk or sugar.

3. The one food you eat most often at breakfast?

Sandwiches! I eat them almost every day. Check out my WIAW posts and you’ll see what I mean.



1. Sandwiches are generally considered a “lunch food.” If you had to choose between a grilled cheese and a peanut butter and jelly, which would you pick?

Ehm, I don’t eat sandwiches for lunch, as they are my favorite breakfast option, but currently I’d prefer peanut butter and jelly, because I’m avoiding cheese. As a child, I really loved liver pâté sandwiches. Gross, I know!

2. You can only put four ingredients in your salad (not including greens); what do you throw in the mix? Additionally, which greens and dressing do you pick?

I like to vary my salad ingredients, but I always come back to my favs: cucumber, tomatoes, carrots, sunflower seeds, usually on a bed of chopped romaine lettuce, topped with a creamy tahini balsamic dressing.

3. One food you can’t live without at lunch?

The coffee afterwards, to fight off the food coma. And a piece of dark chocolate.

Pasta with marinara sauce


1. It’s the end of the day. You’re tired, hungry, and your fridge is empty.  If fast food (from a chain) is your only option, where do you go and what do you order?

That hardly ever happens, actually. I’d rather raid our well stocked pantry and/or freezer. Plus, I live in the sticks and there aren’t any fast food chain ‘restaurants’ in my little village. I’m serious! But given the choice, it would be a tie between fries and garden salad from McDonald’s and a veggie sub from Subway’s.

2. TV/computer on or off while you’re eating?

TV on, computer off. I try to focus more on my meals, but most of the time I eat alone, and I prefer some background noise.

3. The one food you eat most often at dinner?

At the moment I have some kind of blended vegetable soup a few times per week. I love a hot, smooth bowl of soup on a cold, dark fall night.

Vegan Cranberry Brownies


1. Choose between these two American desserts: cheesecake or apple pie?

Apple pie! I love fruity desserts. But if chocolate was and option, I’d have that, of course.

2. Choose between these two foreign desserts: tiramisu (Italy) or flan (Spain)?

Tiramisu! It’s a pretty popular dessert around here (I live less than 200 miles from the Italian border!), and I’ve made it countless times in many different variations. That reminds me, I haven’t had one in ages!

3. Ice cream: cone or cup?

Cup! Why waste your time with a boring waffle cone?

Your turn! Pick one or more questions and give me your answers!

See you!
