ASo I was just wondering with all this cake talk, what is everyone's favourite food/ dish? Me personally I love eating everything!!! Some of my favourites are:
Lasagne Dauphinouse potatoes Spaghetti Bolognese ( yep I love Italian ) Steak Errm the list could go on forever lol- so what do you guys like?
Sweet potato fries
AHmmmm sweet potatoe fries...
ASo I guess nobody likes food huh? Lol
AChicken!!!!!!! Grilled fried baked it doesn't matter lol. Also Chinese. All kinds. Annnnnd fajitas. And spaghetti with meatballs. Oh! BBQ (I'm in Houston,TX BBQ is big here)
I've never met a potato I didn't like . Mashed, fried, baked, scalloped, salad, you name it. Bad French fries are better than no French fries.
Also really like tex-mex style food; it's what's for dinner tonight (bean quesadillas on home made tortillas with all the fixings).
Greek food: I make modified versions (vegetarian-style) of moussaka and pastichio that are to die for. Spanakopita, dolmas, tzatziki, all comfort food for me, having grown up in a Greek household.
I know many people who are the opposite of this, but I REALLY like my own cooking. I'll choose to eat at home over a restaurant 99% of the time.
AOh im totally the same!! Home cooked food any day!!
AI would've answered sooner but I can't, for the life of me, narrow down a favorite food. And I am a very picky eater! I like chicken because I can do anything with it. Potatoes are wonderful because you can fry them, bake them, drown them in cheese... Now I want a buttery loaded baked potato. And nothin' beats home cookin.' I'm no chef, I'm not imaginative with flavors and dishes, but home cooked it where it's at.
ABACON! How could I forget that one?! Cook a shoe in bacon fat, and I'll eat it.
Pepperoni Pizza! It's my downfall! I also love Thai food and key lime gelato. Cake schmake...food is yummy!
ALol @ Pam- you would eat shoes?!! Norasmom i also love Thai food, how on earth did I forget that one??
AMy new favorite is homemade Eggplant Parm, my wife made it a few days ago with eggplants and tomatoes fresh from our garden.
Some of my other favorites are: - Pizza with burrata cheese, prosciutto, fresh tomatoes, arugula, and squash blossoms - Barbeque pulled pork - Chocolate chip pancakes (the first time I had pancakes was in my 20s when my wife found an egg-free recipe) - Ethiopian food (potato & carrot wot, yebeg tibs (lamb) and injera bread) - Torta with carnitas - Ropa vieja with fried plantains - Jersey Mike's #13 (Italian meat sandwich) - Sushi rolls and unagi don
ACaribbean food!! Peas and rice, stewed chicken, oxtails, fried plantain, and Cajun/creole jambalaya, gumbo, po boys..
AAnd sadly McDonald's :( I wish I could leave it alone but those frenchfries are heaven
AHaha! No, but I really really like bacon. Jason, chocolate chip pancakes are my specialty! I eat like kid and sound like a fatty, but I swear I'm neither.
AJason's menu sounds very exotic- I haven't heard half of the things on there ( apart from the pizza and pancakes lol ), royal creamery I love to have hot caribbean soup for when I'm not well ; )
AAny red meat, any chicken, any pork... Just meat in general, but mostly bacon, steak, fried chicken, and Lee's Famous Recipe giblet gravy. I will mix all 4 together one day and die happy!
Then there is 4 cheese pizza, tacos, barbecue, roast beef, Chinese, pumpkin pie, cheesecake, any potato except salad, broccoli,cauliflower, carrots, apples, pears, and rice. McDonald's cheeseburgers, Arby's roast beef, Wendy's fries, and Rally's fries.
And baskin Robbins mocha frapacino. (SP?) basically any coffee, hot or cold, chocolate and cinnamon optional, really creamy, lightly sweetened. And lots of it.
And I know I sound like a big fatty, it's funny because I AM a BIG Fatty! Anybody who says skinny feels better than any food tastes must be eating my mother's cooking or bizarre food that is "an acquired taste". Food is effing GOOD and I pity the fool that can't enjoy it!
AWe always have tge same things again and again. Green curry chicken with rice and carrots and peppers and tatos
And enchilada lasagna
And Bolognese lasagna
Maple and mustard pork chops
Smothered pork chops Rice and black beand with anything
AScratch macaroni & cheese. I was reading this thread earlier and thinking about dinner. Now I'm making a big ole pot of macaroni & whatever cheeses I can find and throw into the sauce. The herb crusted chicken breasts are like the side dish.
ALol Anna, you're like me I will eat anything and everything!!! Kayla branch out, be adventurous!!
AOh yeah I also remembered jacket potatoes- loads of filling!!!
AWe eat more dishes, but I just can't remember wha t they are lol. Last night we had stroganoff and I make a really good spaetzle. we run our house like a restaurant. We always stock the same stuff. Like "hey, we are running low on coconut milk,black beans, and tomato sauce" and we just go to the store and stock back up. We buy rice by the 50lb bag, and buy in bulk as much as we can.
Ooh I just remembered two dishes, chicken parm and homemade chinese food
ALoool, yep we buy in bulk aswell that is the best way- especially since everything's price has gone up!!
AThai sweet and sour chicken Chicken satay Jersey mikes #10 in a tub Moussaka Greek salad Cheese - especially if I can put quince paste on it Almost any Italian food, especially my own risotto
But my first love is chocolate. It runs through my veins. I am pretty sure it was the first solid food I ate as a baby.

Lol! It's funny I eat good now because I hardly ate as a child. I hated my mother's and grandmother's cooking! And I really still do. But I have just realized my mother is a terrible cook, and my grandmother, largly, had very different tastes than I do ;-) she can cook, I just don't like it, for the most part. When we visit, I always get my family food and cook it, and she hates what I cook, too, lol!
AMy mother couldn't cook either, she couldn't even heat stuff up without burning it. As soon as I was old enough I did most of the cooking in our house.
ANY and everything home cooked except cooked turnips. It doesn't matter what you do to them to make them more appealing, I just physically can't swallow a cooked turnip. The oddest thing is though, if I'm cooking a stew it has to have turnips in it, likewise if I do rabbit (especially the wild variety). There has to be turnip in the mix, then I pick them out and refuse to eat them. lol
AWow I guess I was lucky! My mum was an amazing cook- still is,but now my sister does the cooking which is also great!! I can cook but I don't, I just love baking and decorating!!!!

I buy my food in bulk too, 50 pound bags of rice, 40 pounds of chicken, 10 pounds of ketchup, 36 pounds of fries, lol. There are 6 of us, and we live paycheck to paycheck, so it really helps to stretch the food budget.
I brought a bag of chicken over to my mom when she watched my kids because she is on disability and sews for more income. So my kids all come home starving, and she sends home the leftovers (after I asked her and told her to keep them) and the chicken was so dry and tasteless it was like chewing and choking down dehydrated water or something. So Next time, I seasoned it first and I swear she sabotaged it! She gave me the bag back, saying it was too garlicky and I smelled it and almost fell over! There is no way I put that much garlic in it, there is just no way. She is a hateful, jealous, conniving woman, so I really think she was embarrassed to present decent food after the time before, so she added to much garlic. I had to throw it away.
