1. Can you cook? If yes, do you like to cook?
Yes, and yes.

2. When do you eat with your whole family?
Jason and I often make our own dinners and just eat when we’re hungry. Maybe 3 or 4 days a week we’ll eat together while we watch TV. We don’t have a dining room so we eat in front of the TV.

3. What do you eat for breakfast?

In winter, oatmeal. In summer, cold cereal. I try to eat fruit every day, and I try to have something with flax every day.

4. When, where and how do you eat on weekdays?
When I’m hungry, which is often pretty late, like 8 or 9. In front of the TV or while I’m at the computer. How? Um, with utensils.

5. How often do you eat out (in a restaurant)?
We used to eat out about twice a week, but since I’m working part-time, we only eat out maybe once or twice a month.

6. How often do you order delivery/take-out?
We used to do that maybe once a month, but we haven’t ordered out since sometime in the summer.

7. Regarding no. 5 and 6: Say there weren’t financial reasons would you do this more often?

Absolutely. I love trying new restaurants.

8. Are there any “standard dishes” you serve regularly?

I’ll bake boneless chicken breasts, and serve that with roasted potatoes or maybe brown rice. I use the crock pot in the winter to make soup and chili. I wouldn’t say I do that regularly though, more like sometimes. In the summer, we grill a lot – grilled chicken, sausage, steaks, and all kinds of veggies, squash, corn, asparagus, onions.

9. Have you ever cooked for more than 6 persons?
Off the top of my head, I can only think of one occasion, maybe 10 years ago. My boyfriend of the time and I made Thanksgiving dinner at his mom’s house for his family.

10. Do you cook every day?
That depends on your definition of “cook”. I use the microwave most days. I make sandwiches for lunch quite often. As far as cooking a meal, only a few times a month maybe.

11. Have you ever tried recipes from blogs?
Not that I can recall, but I do get my recipes online so maybe I have and just don’t remember.

12. Who cooks more frequently at your home?
Me.

13. And who cooks better?
Me. Jason can’t really cook, and generally doesn’t enjoy it. He did agree to take a cooking class with me though, but that has to wait until I have a better job.

14. Do you cook totally different compared to your mother/parents?
I don’t think so. Although I don’t make pasta unless I’m just cooking it for Jason because an actual serving is pretty laughable, and I’d have to take a bottle of insulin to eat it the way my parents serve it.

15. If yes, do you nevertheless eat at your parents?
When we eat with them, we usually go to a restaurant. They have good taste in restaurants though.

16. Are you a vegetarian or could you imagine being one?

No, and I don’t think so. I like meat. I could be a part-time vegetarian though, and I do have vegetarian meals sometimes.

17. What would you like to cook which you haven’t dared to make yet?
I don’t think I’ve ever made a cake that wasn’t from a box mix. I also want to learn how to make sushi, but I don’t know where to get sushi grade fish around here.

18. Do you prefer cooking or baking?
Cooking. I would need a lot of practice to get baking down.

19. What is your greatest misery in the kitchen?

My greatest misery is my kitchen. I hate it. It’s worthlessly small, and makes cooking more of a hassle than fun. If I had a real kitchen, I imagine I’d cook much more often.

20. What do you dislike?
Rye bread, olives, cavier, most organ meats. There are few things I truly dislike.

    We made your chili last night. I had a small amount since you know I can’t take too much spiciness. I even toned it down from your recipe. We also used spicy Italian sausage instead.
    Dad ate two bowls.
    He said to tell you how good the recipe is!
    Love, Mom

    Great meme. Aren’t “bad” kitchens just the worst? Makes it so much harder to cook. Anyway, I’ll be grabbing this meme to post one day this week!! ;)
