Sunday Social | Food

It's Sunday Social time again and I'm pretty friggin' hungry so this week's topic is perfecto.

Comida aka food. I always find it interesting to see what other people love/hate to eat because we all have such different appetites! Go link up with Neely and Ashley!

Sunday Social

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Sushi. Hands down.

Yes, I took that picture and yes, that sushi was all mine/ours. Four different rolls to be exact and I even titled a blog post with the word "sushi" in it. [The tempura rolls are so bad yet so good.]

What's your guilty pleasure/comfort food?

Does chocolate count? Because I no longer even feel guilty admitting my complete tooth full of sweetness. Chocolate makes everything better. 


What's the weirdest/craziest thing you've ever eaten?

I just realized that it's kind of weird how I go to the Mexican restaurant and have started ordering the shrimp and scallop enchilada. I mean, shrimp and scallops, wrapped in a tortilla and drenched in a Mexican cheese sauce? Really? Whatever. I love my seafood that much... apparently.

What foods do you avoid at all costs?

Anything sweet potato/yam related. The thought alone is enough to make me nauseous. I don't know what it is, friends but I just cannot handle that taste/consistency. Oh, and I LOVE bananas but only when they're still greenish-yellow. If I see bananas at the store that are just yellow I will not be buying them because the next day I'll see a freckle. No bueno.


What meal reminds you of your childhood?

Chili from our grocery store, Giant, with Saltine crackers. Mmm, my mom and I used to eat that when I got home from preschool while we watched "our soaps" on TV :)

Share one of your favorite recipes and the story behind it.

My mom's spaghetti. It was our all-time favorite meal growing up and all throughout the years. When we'd come home from college, Mom had it on the stove. When I came home for a visit from Utah, Mom had that spaghetti waiting when I got home from the airport. 

Since my Mom passed away, that recipe has become even more special to me and because it's kind of a family tradition, I'll be keeping it a secret for now :)

I am SO looking forward to next week's Sunday Social post because it's about THROWBACKS and we all know how much I love the 90's!

I am right with you on pretty much all of these! I, too, am really really picky about my bananas. I like them that greenish/yellowish color when they smell super tropical. yum yum :)

It is funny how different we all are. Spaghetti reminds me of my childhood, but we had it a lot and I don't like it now. Weird, right?

The Michelle Show said...

Spagetti reminds me of Christmas day! We usually have our turkey dinner on boxing day but on Christmas day itself we always have my Grandpa's homemade meat sauce and spagetti. It all started because we are SUCH a big family and cooking a huge fancy meal for that many people would take ALL day, and we wanted to actually enjoy our Christmas day so spagetti it is!

Ash said...

bahahah the whole banana thing made me laugh, because i ONLY eat the freckled ones (those are the ripe ones).. BUT, i usually end up buying around 21 bananas at a time (i don't know why, but it's usually always that number.. and i dont even try!) because i like em in my smoothies... so maybe 10 of those will be green (;

oh.. and dark chocolate- i'll never give that shit up (;

April Marie said...

Ohhh my gosh, I feel the SAME way about bananas! Luckily, I have a husband that will eat just about anything, including an over freckled banana, so they don't go to waste. I even hate to bite off a banana. It has to be sliced in order for me to truly enjoy it, lol. Weird, I know.
*fist bump*

I am a new follower and so glad I came across your blog.
Just seeing that chocolate just makes my mouth water and I cant wait for cooler weather to make some chili.

Mmmm, SUSHI, yummy!!!!! Happy Sunday. I'm with you on the bananas. I will only eat a banana if it it perfectly yellow, no spots or freckles. And, Husband ALWAYS gets the first and last bite. I don't eat the tip part. I'm weird. And pathetic.

Happy Sunday!

How funny! I have never met anyone that didn't like sweet potatoes. :)

Veronica and Daniel said...

I love that banana picture! I like my bananas a little on the green side - like #4 or the time they get to 6 it is to ripe for me!

Shannon Stinson said...

HAHAAHAAHAHAH! Sorry, I'm dying over your freckled banana thing. HILARIOUS! If sushi is your faves, we need a sushi date ASAP. I haven't hunted for a good spot in NoVa/DC yet, so I'm sure you know of a few great ones. Tempura rolls are my FAVE!!!
