Sunday Social

I love link-up posts.  It’s a great way to get to know each other in our virtual bloggy world!

This week’s questions are about one of my favorite topics….food!

If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?


Sushi!  I grew up eating sushi and I will never tire of eating sushi.  There are so many different ways you can make it!

What’s your guilty pleasure/comfort food?


Mac and cheese.  I never even had a lot of mac and cheese growing up, but there is something about this pure Americana food that puts me in a good mood.

What is the weirdest/craziest thing you’ve ever eaten?


I’ve eaten a seafood like octopus since I was little (can’t stand it anymore), and I suppose it is crazy for some people.  For me personally the weirdest thing I’ve eaten is an alligator po’ boy.  I love po’ boys but I will never eat alligator again.  Too chewy and too not for me.   Eating something that would eat you in a heartbeat was slightly empowering…after I almost threw up.

What foods do you avoid at all costs?


Pork.  I can not eat it.  My Grammy never ate it because her dad was Hindu so I never really had it growing up.  In third grade, I dissected a pig’s heart, fetal pig, and then went to a luau the next week for spring break.  Seeing a bbq whole pig was nothing new for me, but that put me over the edge.  What I’m about to say is going to sound crazy, but I love bacon.  It doesn’t bother me for some reason.  I just pretend it comes from a chicken.  Don’t judge me.  I’ve gone vegetarian many times in my life, raw vegan even, but I keep coming back to chicken, fish, and the occasional steak.  Maybe one day I can stick to being a vegetarian.

What meal reminds you of your childhood?


Two dishes come to mind.  One of my favorite snacks growing up was Tazukuri.  My Great-Grandma used to make it for me, and it brings wonderful memories of her.  I’m the only one in my family that likes it because my Grammy hates them.  Check out the picture above and you can probably imagine why.


Sukiyaki was one of my favorite childhood dishes.  It is essentailly a hotpot with beef, yam noodles, tofu, onions, mushrooms, and cabbage in a delicious broth.  So good!

Share one of your favorite recipes and the story behind it.

My Grammy would always make my favorite cookies growing up.  They are soft, comforting, and de-freaking-licious.

      I think you’re the first person that wants to eat those fish. They are sweet and salty..yum!!

    Those cookies look divine! And I love all of the other food you mentioned. I feel kind of culture-less because I grew up in the South and had biscuits and gravy on a regular basis. I do love fish and foreign foods though! I’ll have to try some of those dishes one day…

    • AndreaBai @ Glam Hungry Mom

      Hey biscuits and gravy are delicious! No shame in that :)
