#1. What’s the worst tasting food you’ve ever eaten?
It’s a toss up between brussels sprouts and beets.
#2. Share a funny or embarrassing story about a meal you’re made.
I was making tacos and trying to be fancy with seasoning. Instead of using the package of taco seasoning, I decided to use cumin. I had only used cumin once before and I had a recipe to follow. This time I was on my own to judge how much should go in. So I seasoned and served… Do you remember those steak sauce commercials where people would point to parts of their mouth and throat and say “it gets you right here… and here” and they meant it in a good way? Well, my husband and I would have been grabbing our throats saying “it gets you right here” in a bad way. Our eyes were watering and our throats were on fire… WAY too much cumin. Way. Too. Much.
I also heard from an older friend that when she was first married, she started trying her skills in the kitchen. A recipe called for a clove of garlic and she put in what she thought was a clove of garlic. Turns out she mistook a bulb of garlic for a clove and had put the entire bulb of garlic into the dish. Tragic.
#3. What food do you burn or have problems cooking most often?
Anything that has to be pan fried or seared. I can’t do it without burning it or I end up with a piece of meat that’s too thick to fully cook. I’m working on it…
#4. Name two foods you’ll be eating on this Thanksgiving.
Mashed potatoes & green beans!
