Here’s a little Friday lunchtime entertainment for myself…which would you pick?
Coke or Pepsi: Diet Pepsi. My favorite vice.
Lemonade or Fruit Punch: Lemonade, especially if it’s fresh and more tart than sweet.
Carmel Apple or Cotton Candy: Caramel apple!
Butterfingers or Snickers: Snickers, no question.
Pudding or Jell-O: Pudding. Again, no question. Although, I couldn’t swallow pills until I was a senior in high school. Up until then, my mom would crush pills and put them in a bit of chocolate pudding for me to take. To this day, pudding tastes a bit medicinal to me. I guess that tells you how little I like Jell-O!
Ice Cream or Cookies: Ice cream!
Turkey or Chicken: Neither.
American or Provolone Cheese: American. When I was growing up, I only had pre-sliced cheese when visiting our family friend’s house (my mom was an original food purist). I think I was in middle school before learning that American cheese is not really called “Jane cheese.” No joke.
Crackers or Cookies: Cookies, especially homemade chocolate chip.
Pretzels or Chips: Chips.
Chinese Food or Italian Food: Italian
Pie or Cake: Pie, unless it’s ice cream cake. Or flour-less chocolate cake!
Soda or Juice: Soda. Diet only. I know…aspartame…it’s my vice, remember?
Pasta or Pizza: Pizza. I’m already excited for Friday night pizza night and thinking I’ll do tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, basil, eggplant and mushrooms on my homemade pie tonight.
Apples or Bananas: The most difficult choice so far…I guess bananas, since I eat one every single day.
Salad or Soup: Salads, as long as they’re not boring.
Cauliflower or Broccoli: Broccoli.
Onion Rings or French Fries: French fries.
Blizzard or McFlurry: Blizzard. My favorite is chocolate with Reese’s peanut butter cups.
Fried or Poached Eggs: Poached. I love runny yolks! My favorite way to eat eggs is on toast with avocado, salt and pepper.
Mexican Food or Japanese Food: Oh, tough call. I love guacamole, vegetable burritos, fish tacos and mole sauce. But sushi wins!
Crepes or Pancakes: Pancakes, if they’re made with chocolate chips.
Hash Browns or Roasted Potatoes: Roasted potatoes. I’m not really a hash brown fan. Don’t even get me started on the hash brown puck from McDonald’s!
Chocolate Bars or Chocolate Truffles: Truffles or bars, as long as it’s dark chocolate.
Oatmeal or Cereal: I guess I’d have to say cereal. But I do eat oatmeal more — 5x per week!
Red or White Wine: Red. It tastes more complex to me.
