Today I’m going to kill two birds with one stone. No offense to birds or to bird lovers. It’s just an expression, so get over it.
Anyway, Dr. Tanya offered us her 5 Things prompt and it’s all about potatoes. And Frank has given us his Truthful Tuesday post, which is about eating. So, since potatoes are made for eating, I have decided to write one post in response to these two prompts.
Let’s start with Dr.Tanya’s 5 things.
She wants to know our five favorite ways to eat potatoes.
- Baked with butter and sour cream
- French fries with ketchup (or sometimes beef gravy if available)
- Mashed with butter (or sometimes beef gravy if available)
- Tater Tots
- Hash browns
- Home fries
Okay, that’s six. Sue me.
And now for Frank’s questions about our eating habits.Frank wants to know our truthful answers to:
Are you an adventurous eater, or do you prefer to play it safe when you’re feeling peckish?
I don’t know that “adventurous eater” is the right way to describe me, but I do like to eat a lot of things other people might not appreciate. Sushi (raw fish), for example. Or raw clams and oysters on the half shell. Octopus and squid. And, of course, Ben & Jerry’s Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream ice cream.
Do you prefer dining in or dining out?
Dining out? I’m sorry, can you remind me again what dining out is?
When you dine in, who does the cooking?
If I want to eat something that tastes good and is healthy, my wife cooks.
When you dine out, do you tend to stick to places you know, or do you look for new places to try?
Back in the Before Days, when dining out was an option, I could always be on board for trying a new restaurant. That said, I could also be up for going back to a place where I knew the food was good.
