Friday Five:

1. What drinking water do you prefer — tap, bottle, purifier, etc.?
At home we have a Brita water filter jug, but really we use it more for the coldness than the filtration. (As evidenced by the fact that we only recently changed the filter for the first time… over a year after we bought it.) At work I drink tap water.

2. What are your favourite flavor of chips?
It’s been sooooo long since I had chips. (Long enough that it feels weird to call them that.) I used to be addicted to Cool Ranch Doritos back in college. Here I love Kettle Chips, especially the sea-salt-and-black-pepper and lime-and-black-pepper varieties. In England I even enjoyed salt and vinegar crisps. (I avoided all their weird meat flavoured ones though.)

3. Of all the things you can cook, what dish do you like the most?
Chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes. Unfortunately it’s got seven zillion grams of carbs, so I haven’t had it in ages.

4. How do you have your eggs?
It used to be strictly fried, but nowadays I like ’em all different kinds of ways. I like scrambled eggs and omelettes, and the mere thought of poached eggs and hollandaise sauce has me drooling. I’ve also finally learned to like hard-boiled eggs. I’ve started boiling up several at a time and keeping them in the fridge to take to work for snacks. I still like fried eggs too, especially with Worcestershire sauce (which the Snook introduced me to). The only egg I don’t like is a soft-boiled one. It just kinda grosses me out.

5. Who was the last person who cooked you a meal? How did it turn out?
Snookums cooked dinner Tuesday night: lamb chops, baked pumpkin, cauliflower mash, and asparagus. Soooo good. He’s such a better cook than me.
