We Want To Know Wednesday

Welcome to We Want to Know Q&A Wednesday
Hosted by Mamarazzi and Alicia aka Queso


{1} What is one thing (food or drink) that you MUST have everyday?

Yummy in my tummy! I must have Diet Dr. Pepper. It is what keeps me a sane and reasonably happy mommy and wife. :-)

{2} What is your "go to" food when you don't feel well/need comfort?
The first thing that I thought of was my mom's chicken and dumplings. Just the thought of them comforts me. I don't get them very often, so I cherish them when I do. I usually try to keep ice cream in the house, preferably mint chocolate chip or cookies 'n cream. Ice cream definitely soothes my soul.

{3} Is there a dish that you make that people request when they visit your home/a family favorite?
That would definitely be my mom's famous caramel brownies ... heaven in a pan, I tell you! :-)  Another often requested favorite is my mom's fudge. My cute cousin used to request her fudge all the time but didn't know what it was called. He asked for the soft brown stuff. So, that is what we call it now. Do you see a pattern forming here? My mom is definitely the good cook. She is a great provider of comfort .... food and emotional support as well!

{4} What are 3 foods you have TRIED and do not like and will NEVER eat again?
1 --  I have tried tomatoes on their own and I just don't like them. I can stand tomato sauce on pizza if it is applied sparingly. I just can't stand the acidity of them.
2  --  Mushrooms are just plain nasty in my book. I don't like the flavor and the texture really bothers me too.
3  --  Pure venison meat. I used to like deer meat that my dad would bring home from a hunting trip. However, it has been a long time since he did that. My brother-in-law gave us some elk meat and I made a meatloaf out of some of the ground meat. Way too strong! Ugh. It kind of killed my desire to ever eat venison again.

and our final question comes from Dee@ HomesickCajun
{5} What's one thing that you love to eat that most people would think is weird and/or gross?
I am a major fan on frosty's and french fries. People used to think it was disgusting but it seems to be trending for the last few years. I've been a french fry dipper from early childhood. Another thing I can thank my mom for! :-)  
Ever had Cheetos dipped in caramel? Sounds gross and weird but it is GOOD!

Dipping your fries in a frosty is truly one of the most delicious things on earth!

Haha I am a fry dipper too- I started as a child as well in the stone ages aka when McD's first came to town and served them. Everyone thought it was the weirdest thing ever but I've noticed it's trendy now too. Apparently we were way ahead of the curve on this one. ;)

I've done the frosty and french fries thing--it's pretty good.
As for venison--it really depends on how it is processed. We always add beef suet to our ground elk--makes it hold together and taste better. Just plain it can be a bit much.
