I've been quite busy the past few days, but it will take me a little more time to write about what I've been up to. So, here, have a meme about food.

1. How do you feel about golden Oreos? They’re okay. I don’t buy them, but I don’t refuse to eat them if somebody has them on a cookie platter. I admit I do buy oreos mostly to check out their odder new (usually temporary) flavors. Recently, I had the s’mores flavor and thought they were pretty good. But I still prefer Carr’s ginger lemon cookies when it comes to this sort of thing.

2. What is your favorite dessert topping? Some sort of liqueur. Probably Grand Marnier, which is excellent drizzled on vanilla ice cream or on fruit salad.

3. What is your favorite flavor/brand of bubble gum? I was unaware that bubble gum actually came in flavors other than the generic pink one of the Bazooka gum of my childhood.

4. Favorite cheese? I am not a big cheese eater. Cream cheese is good on bagels. Those high fat herb cheeses, like Alouette, are good on crackers. Pepper jack is good for omelets or grilled cheese sandwiches.

5. Favorite Lunch Meat? Assuming I can interpret "lunch meat" as any sort of cold cuts, I like tongue.

6. Favorite ice cream flavor? McConnell’s Turkish coffee if we are talking American-type ice cream. I also tend to like ice cream or gelato with cinnamon or ginger (but not both)at the same time.

7. Best looking food? Probably some sort of sushi.

8. Best food to put cheese on? Um, a cracker?

9. Best food to eat away from people? It’s hard to eat spaghetti with any dignity.

10. Best tasting drink in the summer? Sparkling water with lime.

11. Best tasting drink in winter? Hot buttered rum.

12. Best food for a night out with friends? Tapas. Having a crowd means you can order more small plates to share.

13. Best foods to eat with a roll? It depends on the sort of roll. Hot dogs, for example, are the best thing to eat with a hot dog roll. Assuming one considers a bagel or bialy to be a type of roll, then cream cheese and lox.

14. Messiest food, in your opinion? Any sort of long noodle. See comment about spaghetti above.

15. Easiest food to prepare? Chili.

16. Cheapest food you ever ate? I got a bowl of soup and a large dish of kasha for the equivalent of roughly 50 cents in Polatsk, Belarus.

17. Most expensive food you ever ate? Maybe a venison dish I ate in Sweden?

18. Stinkiest food you ever ate? I have eaten durian a couple of times.

19. Favorite dipping sauce? Mayonnaise combined with horseradish. Or with sriracha.

20. Best pizza topping? Mushrooms and black olives.

21. Favorite potato chip flavor? Since the disappearance of onion and garlic flavor potato chips. I have to settle for barbecue.

22. Most toxic substance you ever ate? My understanding is that fiddlehead ferns become toxic if they open up. But, when tightly furled, I find them delicious.

23. Most calories you ate in one meal? Now that some restaurants put calories on their menus, I’ve been astonished at how many calories are in many breakfast offerings. I imagine I’ve probably eaten 3000 calories at a breakfast buffet at some point.

24. Favorite soda? Schweppes bitter lemon.

25. Favorite flavor of juice? Grapefruit

26. Favorite Vegetable? Hmm, asparagus maybe

27. Favorite fruit? Cherimoya

28. Worst canned food? Canned mushrooms are disgusting, which is particularly annoying given the deliciousness of fresh mushrooms.

29. Best side dish? A good, vinegary cole slaw. Unfortunately, most places down here make cole slaw that is sweet and/or creamy instead.

30. Worst fast food restaurant? I ate at Taco John’s in Colorado or Nebraska once. It was awful – salty and bland. There is not enough hot sauce in the world to salvage that horror.

31. Best restaurant? So hard to choose, but let’s say Zaytinya locally and Le Peep in Boulder, Colorado for non-local breakfasts. Though the best meal of my life was at the restaurant of a 3 star hotel in Sorrento, Italy.

32. Best smelling food? Freshly baked bread

33. Favorite appetizer? Beet salad

34. Favorite cookie flavor? Ginger-lemon

35. Favorite cake flavor? Chocolate

36. Favorite pie flavor? Coconut cream, though there’s a place in my neighborhood that makes wonderful raspberry-peach pie

37. Chocolate or rainbow sprinkles? Chocolate

38. Ketchup or Mustard? Mustard, though not on burgers

39. Best food to have with a near-stranger? You can learn a lot about somebody by eating Ethiopian food with them. Or anything else you eat with your hands.

40. Most share-able food? French fries. Because restaurants always give you about 12 times too many.
