Thursday 13 (#9)

13 Favorite Things To Eat

1. Anything white chocolate. I used to be a milk chocolate only kind of girl, but then on year for Easter mom bought us white chocolate bunnies, and I was hooked. And now Reese’s has white chocolate and oh my god they are to die for. OH another thing to try? White chocolate and strawberry Hershey’s Kisses. Yup. It’s all good.

2. Cheesecake. Top of the list, New York Style cheesecake. Strawberry cheesecake is good too. Any cheesecake someone else makes…always good. Truthfully, around Thanksgiving, Pumpkin cheesecake even sounds good (yes I have the recipe) and at Christmas? You guessed it, Egg Nog Cheesecake.

3. Steak. But a good steak.. a New York or KC Strip steak. My dad taught me the proper way to eat a good steak…. Medium raw. Well, ok, I have to order it medium rare, but really, I just want it warmed through, and just done on the outside.

4. Broccoli is always good. This place has the best steamed broccoli. I hated broccoli before I got pregnant with Tate. When I was pregnant I couldn’t eat enough of it, and well it stuck. I love it. But not with cheese on it, just steamed with a little butter. I’m good.

5. Seafood, of any kind. Shrimp, lobster, crab legs. Most people, when you say seafood, think this place. Nope, not me. I go here. The best damn margaritas (and the seafood is good too)

6. Italian food. Pasta, of any kind. If there’s seafood in it (shrimp primavera) then bonus! Love me some pasta, and garlic, lots of garlic. Garlic bread too. (and margaritas)

7. Chinese food is good. Sweet and sour anything, cashew chicken, sesame chicken, oh and if you get sweet and sour shrimp, or shrimp fried rice…again bonus. (no margaritas)

8. Mexican food. Give me a chimichanga, a enchiladas, nachos, chips and salsa. Oh, yeah, and (all together now…. ) Margaritas.

9. Anything anyone else cooks for me. Some days, even mac and cheese and hot dogs, or spaghetti-o’s are gourmet if someone else cooks them for me. (and cleans up the mess)

10. Cesar salad Grilled chicken Cesar salad is even better. Now I’ve had some good Cesar salads, and I’ve had bad ones. It’s hard to screw em up, but apparently not impossible.

11. Ice cream. Absolute favorite? Baskin Robbin’s Peanut butter and chocolate. After this post, does this really surprise anyone? Seriously? My mother always ate Jamocha Almond Fudge, and now I’m as predictable as my mother. 31 flavors, I chose the same one every. Single. Time.

12. Mashed potatoes and gravy. Thank you Dad. It was a life commandment for us. We LOVE mashed potatoes and gravy. Newt is right there with me. Why can’t we have mashed tators and gravy for breakfast? It’s good for you and better than sugar coated cereal. (is she really my kid?)

13. Mrgaritas…do those count? Oh wait, it’s my list, I decide what counts, and well margaritas count.

Very yummy list!! I like all of those things, too, except Italian food. (I know people think I'm crazy) but I just don't like pasta or sauces.

One of my favorite foods is tapioca pudding! I have no idea what tapiocas are (don't even want to know!) but I love the stuff!!!

Happy TT- Jessica

I like most of these my own seff. I love the white chocolate covered pretzels that are easy to find around Christmas. Lovem.

I still have to have my steak well done, I don't like it to moo at me like my Dad did.

I had Meskin food last night. Yummy.

Must be smashed potato day - Lauren Dane is raving about the virtue of crushed spuds on her TT today. Me - mexican food - could eat it every day but only get it a few times a year because my husband HATES it. sigh.

For a minute there I wasn't sure if you and I could be friends considering you like white chocolate and cheesecake, but you totally made up for it with Basking Robbins, mashed potatoes and gravy, and margaritas. Especially the margaritas.

Loved the list!
