ABOUT THAT FOOD YOU’RE EATING … Marilyn Armstrong

Daily Topic Subject – Food Glorious Food
Game On – S2 Created by A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip!

“This twice weekly game will be 21 questions or in truth 16 flexi questions, because there will be five permanent that must stay in place at all times.

But apart from those 5 permanent questions, should you choose to reblog, then you can change any of the other 16 questions or create 16 of your own, that’s down to you, however you must stick to the Daily Topic Subject.

The Rules …
1] Leave the Permanent Questions [PQ] always in place PLEASE.

2] Reblog should you so desire

3] If you do reblog, a pingback would always be welcomed so l don’t miss it.

4] This is a non-tagger/ non-nomination game.

This is quite simply a small questions game. The questions are not that taxing, or they might be if you don’t like questions — as many don’t. If you don’t like questions, why are you even bothering with this? The questions are just here for trivia based fun.” So sayeth Guy


Q1] What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

Snails. It was a French restaurant. Garry said I had to try them. Disgusting. But Garry likes them. He also likes anchovies, so I suppose snails are right next door.

Q2] What was Cheerios original name?

It had an original name?

Q3] What is right when eating Pizza – eating the slice as it is, or folded?

Be free! Live it up! Whatever works for you. I’ve also eaten it with a knife and fork (don’t faint, please).

Q4] In hot dogs which is better Ketchup or Mustard?

The VFW raising money with its own hot dog stand!

I don’t use either of them. Actually, I rarely use either of them on anything, but absolutely NOT on hot dogs. I like a little pickle relish if I have some. Otherwise, nothing is fine.

PQ5] If you had to explain to someone who had never cooked ‘Scrambled Eggs’ in their life – how would you explain that  …. through mobile phone text?

I don’t text. No, seriously, the other day I had to text something to make my car radio work. I realized I didn’t know how. I eventually doped it out, but I don’t text. I make phone calls. I write instructions. I used to write manuals for software and hardware. Sorry, no texting.

Although I make scrambled eggs, I’m not one of the world’s great egg cookers.

Q6] Watermelon – salted or unsalted which is better?

Salted? Seriously? Why? Who puts salt on watermelon? Is that legal?

PQ7] Who in your opinion is the best TV Chef? Explain why and provide links to support your theory.

I have no opinion. Never watched a single TV show starring any chef. Sorry.

Q8] How do you eat your Oreo Cookies – split apart or just bite into them?

I buy the thin ones and I never split them. Actually, until the thin ones came out, I didn’t like Oreos.

Q9] Everyone loves a sandwich, however when it comes to cutting them in half do you do so diagonally or straight?

I usually don’t cut them. I just start at one end and eat straight through. Anything left over goes to the most aggressive dog in the room.

Q10] Spaghetti is best eaten twirled around the fork or cut up with a knife?

That’s a personal choice. There IS no right way. Anyway, I break the spaghetti in half before I cook it, so it’s just easier to eat any old way.

Q11] Pecan – a simple word in itself and yet there is a huge controversial debate on pronunciation – so is it  “Pee-can or is it Pick-ahn?

Everyone I know calls it a pee-CON. Pick-ahn? I don’t know anyone who pronounces it that way. Maybe down south? Or out west? Or  … in Lebanon?

PQ12] What is your most favourite quote with regards food that sums you up the best?

You cook. You clean. I’ll eat and praise your greatness.

Q13] What is the main ingredient to Gingerbread Cookies?

Let’s get quibbly here. There is gingerbread and then, there are ginger snaps. There is no such thing as a gingerbread cookie. I make gingerbread and if I do say so myself, it’s pretty good and smells like heaven.

Gingerbread (mine)

I also bake — or used to bake — amazing ginger snaps. I didn’t invent the recipe — it came from a cookbook, but they are really good. These are a crisp, ginger-flavored cookie and is related to gingerbread by its primary flavoring — ginger.

For both of them, the primary ingredient is flour. In pretty much everything you bake, flour is either the primary ingredient or the second of two equal amounts. Very occasionally, a recipe will call for more sugar than flour, but I don’t bake things with that much sugar in it. I’m pre-diabetic and would like to remain “pre.”

Q14] Which country is the second biggest market for fast food – China or Canada?

I would bet on China simply because it’s huge and contains so much of the human race. Canada is a physically big country with a relatively small population, so I don’t think they’d beat out China for anything except maybe, moose. Canada definitely has more moose.

PQ15] What is your favourite meal to cook and explain why?

I don’t think I actually have one. There are so many things I can’t eat — or Garry can’t eat — a lot of the fun foods are not fun anymore.

Q16] What is venison?

Deer.

Q17] True or False – Beefsteak is a variety of Tomato?

Yup.

Q18] It’s Halloween, and you need to make a Jack-o-lantern, so you need to find a  … ?

A pumpkin that’s the right shape for your art. After that, you would want a knife and a scoop. Preferably a small and very sharp knife. Maybe something like a gouge — a round thing you might use to core an apple (there’s a word for it, but I don’t remember it). A thin line magic marker isn’t a bad idea, either, if you’re getting fancy.

For a final piece de resistance, you’ll want a candle and something with which to light it.

OR, these days, if you are a painter, you can skip the carving and paint the pumpkin. The good thing about painting is that a painted pumpkin doesn’t rot as fast as a carved one.

Q19] Are humans omnivore, herbivore or carnivore?

Omnivore unless you are a vegan. If you are a vegan, you’re a herbivore.

PQ20] Are you deleting any questions, if so which ones?

Nope. Food is not so important to me today. Time does weird things to appetite.

Q21] What is another name for Sweet Corn?

Maize.

  1. I’m with you on the TV chefs. I saw Gordon Ramsay on TV a few times and his bad manners put me off watching chefs throwing their weight around for television. Food shows used to be about teaching people how to cook. Now they are all soap operas with food.
