Question of the Day

So I'm going to try something and see how it works. I'm posting a question for you, my readers. And I want you to leave a comment with your answer. So here goes:

  • If you could have anything for dinner tonight, what would it be? Would you make it, would someone you love make it, or would you be ordering it in a restaurant?
Here's my answer:

I'm in the mood for something that someone else made tonight, perhaps because I have spent the last 2 1/2 days making food for Jared's Patient Appreciation Day. If I could have anything I wanted for dinner tonight, I'd have Mexican food at Erin's house. Although I'd be thrilled to eat anything at Erin's house. We'd eat until we were too full and then lounge by the pool while the kids played, talking about our college days, homeschooling, recipes, and blogging. It's quite a drive to get there, but the more I think about it, the more I want to hop in the car.

Leave the light on for me, Erin! I'll be in sometime in the middle of the night.

(This picture was taken the last time we had Mexican food at Erin's, in July.)

Now, what do you want to eat?

I would like a rib eye steak from the bar b q, with a baked potato and salad. I would definitely like someone else to cook, and I wouldn't mind if there was also peace and quiet while I ate....I know, very self centered...

Deborah said...

PS, And yes it would be lovely if the person who cooked for me was also someone I love...

Honestly, I just love to eat anything cooked by SOMEONE ELSE. Even ramen noodles. I love restaurants and secretly wish I could be a restaurant critic because I already am in my brain, but with law school, budget crunches, failing economy, blah blah blah, I think it will be a while before I step into another restaurant besides an occasional Wendy's drive-thru. But you have given me a great idea. I need to make a new friend who cooks in bulk and randomly show up at her house at dinner time. Other people's food tastes SO much better than mind.

That word was supposed to be "mine." I got hungry and was a little distracted.

I would have a giant bowl of mashed potatoes from The Cheesecake Factory. Yummmmmm!

I would order the pork loin from this restaurant in Asheville, NC that I forgot the name of, but will never forget the taste of that meal. It was simply divine. Leek infused mashed potatoes, some sort of out of this world corn relish, etc. And part of the reason I would go there is because it's Asheville, NC in Oct. Simply amazing.
Acutally, I think I'll look up what that restaurant was called just so others can seek it out and enjoy.

Ok I found it. Carmel's. http://www.carmelsofasheville.com/
Like I said, simply amazing and divine is what I ordered off the menu. ;)

Michal, can I come, too?
I would love to go to Erin's for Mexican food. My favorite time to go would be for New Year's Eve. She makes so many delicious appetizers, but best of all are the Taquitos and Guacamole.
She cooks them all night long, and we get to eat them all night long.
Then she cooks them again, all day for New Years Day, too. Mexican Food never tastes better than for New Years. I think it's my favorite tradition of Erin's.
Mexican food is great any time at Erin's but even more so on New Year's Eve.
I hope you get to go. She would be so happy to see you.

I'm going to have to go with a night out, just Nick and I at our favorite place Fats Asian Bistro ~ Honey Walnut Prawns. Thats all I have to say. The best!
I enjoyed seeing you this afternoon and would take another bowl of that yummy soup you made. Oh so good!

Out biggest meal is lunch and I was craving some of my Grandpa's Paella. I had to make it myself but it sure was worth it!

Prudy said...

Oh, Michal. Don't tease me. You know I would cook you three days of feasts if you would come for a visit. Please do come and I promise enough Mexican food to smear your precious girl from stem to stern. Come over anytime. Now that you're getting me thinking about alll our good times and good foods, I would love some of everything we had at that Christmas season appetizer party years ago. Mini falafels, little homemade rolls with ham and dijon, Christmas cookies.
I just read Leslie's comment below. I wish you could both come for New Year's.

I would love to go to my mom's for dinner. Even if we spent all day in the kitchen preparing the food and then spent all evening eating the food and then cleaning up. Thanksgiving food sounds good to me. Pumpkin Pie, Grandma's rolls, cranberry sauce! Since I live so far away from family anytime with them would be amazing!

OK so I would have Cracker Barrel's chicken fried chicken with red skinned mashed potatoes, mac n cheese and biscuits with gravy. Oopsie I just drooled on the keyboard. I would have Michal make my dessert, if you have not had them, her cookies are divine :)

I would love some mexican food, as long as it does not have ground beef.
I don't know Erin, but can I come too? :)

Suldog said...

I would have my father's baked stuffed pork chops. He is deceased, since 1994, and I've never quite gotten the recipe right. He never wrote it down :-(

Sorry for the melancholy comment. He was a wonderful cook, and I miss his meals tremendously.

I'd have a calzone at the Foundry Grill up at Sundance. Yummy food, beautiful setting--especially now the leaves are showing their colors.

I'd definitely be letting somebody else take my order! BUT, I've been taking orders from 4 sick people for the last 2 weeks. :(

Anything I don't have to cook ... as long as there aren't any mushrooms are seafood or olives involved :) !!

How about some tender, marinated steak with amazing garlic mashed and creamy potatoes and some fresh grilled vegetables to go with it. Chocolate Lava cake for dessert would work, too!
