Breaking the ice with a Friday Five about food

Food is the best.

I've been a terribly neglectful LJer of late! I feel sort of bad about it, so let's get back into the swing of things.

1. Do you like ketchup or tomatoes or both?
Both, though as a young kid I refused to eat ketchup. No idea why.

2. Do you like grape jelly/jam or purple grapes or both?
Both. Grape jelly on a hot Bojangles biscuit is amazing. But I also like grapes and when I (rarely) remember to buy them, it's excellent to freeze them and have as a snack.

3. Do you like cider or apples or both?
Both. And it's almost cider season (which is also college football season)!

4. Do you like cream or milk or both?
Both, though I have been having very little of either recently. At work (where I drink almost 100% of my coffee) we have those gross little shelf-stable half-and-half cups that come in a giant box of 800, and I am not organized enough to always have fresh cream there. So all summer I have been going to either Starbucks or Pret, both of whom have soy milk. And I eat my granola with nonfat yogurt.

5. Do you like zucchini bread or zucchini or both?
Both are good, though zucchini bread can be really dry. Fresh zucchini are amazing, because you can roast them or grill them or prepare them a whole bunch of ways that are all delicious.

On that note, there has been a lot of great cooking in our household recently.


Roasted vegetables with bigger eggplant slices, shrimp with cocktail sauce


And it is crazy hot this week, as is expected in DC in August. So last night while at Duplex, I finally tried frosé. I was skeptical this would be for me, but their version is strawberry-flavored and I loved it.


Yes, it is rosé from a slushie machine and it is glorious.


More updates are forthcoming, as I have no plans for the rest of this weekend other than a gym trip tomorrow morning.

I would gladly give both my balls for a Bojangles biscuit. Ok so I have no balls to give but take whatever you want. Throw in a chicken breast and I will be your slave for life. I have a Bojangles plastic coffee cup and that is as close as I have been to that goodness in a decade. But I dream. I do.

As soon as I figure out how to get the recipes right, I will become the first West Coast Bojangles franchisee. ;)

But ketchup is excellent (on a limited number of food items, mainly crinkle cut fries)!
