Sunday Social - All About Food - Yummy!!

1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Man I am not sure that I could only pick one this.  I sure do love me some food!! Since I have to pick I think..ummmm....probably...(said in my Kid Clammy voice) Nope can't do it.  I am not usually a commitment phob but I have to in this case!

2. What's your guilty pleasure/comfort food?
Mexican Food.  Love me some chips, salsa, rice, beans, and margaritas!

3. What's the weirdest/craziest thing you've ever eaten?
Probably the fried squid from our science dissection in the 8th grade.  I also wrote my name with the ink!

4. What foods do you avoid at all costs?
Sushi.  Man have I tired but every time I gag and get sick. 

5. What meal reminds you of your childhood?
Green Mashed Potatoes and Hot Dogs.  I used to ask for it every year on my birthday and my dad hated it but would eat it because it was my special day!!
