A to Z Theme 2016
For my 2016 A to Z theme I used a meme that I ran across on the blog of Bridget Straub who first saw it on the blog of Paula Acton. This meme is a natural for me to use on my memoir blog. It's an A to Z concept and it's about me. No research and nothing complicated. I'm given twenty six questions or topics to discuss that are about me.In April I kept my posts short and uncomplicated. In the midst of it all you might learn a few things about me that you didn't previously know.

Your favorite food (#atozchallenge)
Your favorite food...
Sadly, I've been finding that more and more the foods that have always been my favorites don't set well with me sometimes. I've always liked spicier flavorful foods. Favorite foods include pizza, Mexican, or Thai food. But I'm also mighty fond of just about all Asian food and Italian when I'm in the right mood. When you get right down to it my favorite thing to eat is food--period.
Oh, there are a few things that I don't like so well, but if I'm hungry I'll go for just about anything. Sometimes it might be a mood thing. I might crave a sub sandwich or some soup. Turkey dinners are great anytime--especially the Thanksgiving dinner like my mother used to make. I can duplicate those Thanksgiving style dinners like my mother made so that everyone eating it seems to think it's great, but I can tell the difference. When I cook it, those turkey dinners don't seem quite as good as my mother's. Maybe it's like she used to say how you spend several hours cooking and then eating it just doesn't seem as good as it might have if somebody else had done all the work.
I love ice cream, cake, candy--any sweets. I'm crazy about sweets and that's bad for me. Food, food, food. I enjoy eating. My wife thinks I'm a great cook, but that's maybe because she doesn't cook. I'll admit that a lot of times my meals seem better than many of the restaurant meals we get. And when it comes to spaghetti, forget about it. It's been rare that I've ever had a plate of restaurant spaghetti that comes even close to what I make. It's in the sauce. Seems like you'd get a really good spaghetti gravy when you pay top price in a restaurant, but I rarely have so I rarely order spaghetti when I eat out. Spaghetti is something best fixed when I fix it. Same with chili most of the time.
My favorite food if I have to pinpoint one might be pizza. But if I'm not in the mood for pizza then my favorite food is something else. It comes down to mood. When I have a serious craving for something special and if I fulfill that craving with something that I think is really outstanding, then that's my favorite food. For the moment at least.
What do you tend to eat more than anything else? Is there anything that you won't order in a restaurant? Do you think you cook better than most people?
