Wanna play? Go here!

#1. What’s your favorite carbonated beverage?

Oh, easy. Coca-Cola Classic decaffeinated. Which is really tied with the regular CocaCola classic. I don't drink aspartame so most diet sodas don't work for me. Also high on the list: Orangina and the Peach Pear Italian Soda from Archer Farms (Target's house brand). I know soda is so, so bad for me but I cannot deal without the bubbles for long. It is the hardest Lenten sacrifice I do (and I do a bunch!).

#2. What’s your favorite spicy food?

It's funny, I crave really complex, layered flavors, but not necessarily spicy ones. I love palak paneer and some other Indian dishes, which I suppose is the closest to spicy that I get. Even then, though, I'm putting raita all over everything to tone it down.

#3. How do you handle hot dishes? Oven mitt, pot holder, towel?

Oven mitt. I am too uncoordinated to try anything else. Or rather, to succeed at anything else. I have, in fact, tried.

#4. Ice cream. How do you like yours?

Straight in a bowl, after resting on the counter for 10 minutes, unless it's from my favorite parlor in the mountains, in which case, a sugar cone please. Favorite flavors are many. I love pumpkin ice cream and peach ice cream from Bassett's. My old-time favorite is mint chocolate chip. My new favorite is Moosetracks. My favorite of the 31 flavors is pecan praline. And I adore Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia frozen yogurt. And I cannot buy Haagen Dazs Dolce de Leche.

Still in a food mood from Thanksgiving? Try your own!

I'll admit my bad habit: Dish towel or rag to grab the pots out of the oven, because I'm much too lazy to walk all the way across the kitchen to get the pot holder. Worse yet? It probably means I'm also burning something.

Another sugar cone girl! I think they're so much nicer than the ever popular waffle cones.

We drink caffeine free Coke in our house, too. It's getting harder and harder to find at the grocery!
