Rules, schmules (Friend Makin’ Monday)

On a Tuesday. Hey, give me a break, I was on vacation last week and the days all start to jumble together.

In the Kitchen

1. How often do you cook at home? Me personally? Rarely. Fortunately, my husband enjoys cooking so he cooks pretty much every night. Win for me!

2. Do you eat more fresh produce, frozen or canned produce? It’s about half and half. Fresh potatoes, carrots, onions and fruit, and frozen corn/green beans/veggie mixes.

3. What are a few unusual staples that can always be found in your kitchen? Unusual? Hmm. If olive oil and garlic are unusual…(did I mention I’m Italian?)

4. Look in your fridge, then tell us about the healthiest thing in there. Either the carrots or the nonfat yogurt.

5. Now share the most unhealthy thing in it. My husband’s cans of Coke.

6. Do you eat leftovers?┬áSure, I’ll have leftovers if we make enough; normally we only have enough for the one meal though.

7. Do you use coupons at the supermarket? I notice them in the paper, and I save them when I get them with my receipt, but I always forget to bring them with me.

8. How often do you try new recipes? Well, given that I’m not the cook, I hardly ever try new recipes. My husband improvises sometimes, but we do tend to stay in food ruts.

9. Do you make grocery lists? Do you stick to them? If it’s a planned grocery trip, I have a list. And a system. There may or may not be route planning involved.

10. If you could buy one food item that would magically be calorie-free, which item would you choose? Strangely? I think cheese. Sharp, delicious cheddar.
