My favorite things Monday


Guess what today is!!! It's Monday, and that means its time for My Favorite things! I spent alot of time thinking about what the theme for today was going to be, and when I woke up this morning pining for scrambled eggs and turkey bacon, I decided I should post about FOOD. Food and I are likethis. As the eldest daughter of a very talented cook, I was exposed to a very wide variety of flavors from a young age...there is really not much I won't eat, and alot of my tastes aren't fancy, just good old food!  So here they are, in no particular order:

In n Out Double double Animal Style
Double double= dbl cheeeeze dbl meat
Animal Style= grilled onions, extra special sauce, lettuce, tomatoes,
grilled onions and extra pickles.
I have a foodgasm just looking at this, I CRAVE this like you
don't even know.... In n out, which Im sure some of you may
have heard of is a family owned fast food restuarant, and they have
an extremely small menu, everything is DELICIOUS. And they
cut their french fries in the nasty frozen crap.
A double double animal style is my own personal little
slice of heaven!

Dana Bagel
This crunchy little love is on the menu where I work...
in this case its on an everything bagel, toasted twice and scooped out.
Cream cheese, avocado and Lemon pepper. But it's a special KIND
of lemon pepper, I could tell you but of course I'd  have to kill
you afterwards. The Lemon pepper MAKES this bagel. And

Grandma's Meatloaf
This picture is NOT my grandma's meat loaf....
but since I don't have a picture it will just have to do.
I have been eating and LOVING my grandmother's meatloaf
my whole life. She just stopped asking me what I wanted to
eat when I'd go to visit her, because she knew what the answer
was going to be. Even to this day, she has a loaf ready when I
visit.  On holidays, it's turkey, ham, taters and a meatloaf.
I'm drooling. You remember the quote from 'A christmas
Story'? "Meatloaf smeatloaf, double beatloaf, I HATE meatloaf!"
Shooooot, I would snatched up that kids plate and eaten it all up!

I love Potatoes every which way possible...and in ANYTHING
possible... hashed, mashed, roasted, fried, salted, sliced, diced,
in soup, on a plate...ANYWHERE. Smothered in ketchup in most cases.
Mashed with gravy and mixed with peas and corn might be my all time fave.
There's even a song about Potatoes.

"Anyways, like I was sayin', Shrimp is the fruit of the sea.
you can barbque it, broil it, boil it, bake it, sautee it. Dey's uh
shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo.  Pan fried, deep fried,
stir fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper
shrimp. Shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes,
shrimp burger, shrimp sandwhich...that-that's about it."

I love breakfast foods...this picture is to me the perfect breakfast.
I would only make slight variations with the eggs. But we'll be talking about
eggs in a minute. Bacon, sausage, and toast to sopp up the yolks...throw in
some hashbrowns and I'm on it like swimwear. As for the eggs, scrambled,
over easy, or poached I love them...and all of these foods combined
create one big food, because if I were eating this the whole plate
would be mixed together and smothered in ketchup, as i mentioned
before. And biquits with gravy are welcomed with this dish as well!

Golden Spoon Frozen yogurt
On a hot summer day, there is NOTHING better
than a chocolate malt and cake batter with yogurt chips, or
chopped almonds, oooh or maybe chocolate sprinkles.
It doesn't even have to be summer, I'll sit there and shiver
through my fro yo I love it so much.

'Wahoo's' Grilled Chicken tacos
Wahoo's is known for their delicious fish tacos, only in
california can you get their awesome food. Wahoo's is fresh, and healthy
and their menu options are great. But my drool fest comes from the
grilled chicken tacos, with black beans and rice. Lime squeezed on them
is a must oh and they have to be covered in fresh salsa.

Subway Turkey sandwhich
I can get down on turkey sandwhiches from subway like you wouldn't
believe. These for me are a great go to when all  want is an In n Out Double
double, and I don't want to destroy my work out... oh so refreshing and crunchy
and very satisfying. Or in other words I might be a little obsessed!

Disneyland Churros
If you've never had the pleasure I am so very sorry.
Disney land food is AWESOME. And part of going to d land is
feeding your face. They have the best churros ever, there's a churro cart
practically every three feet. Crunchy on the outside, and soft and doughy on
the insde AND packed with cinnamon and sugar. To die for. AND you can
get caramel sauce for dipping!

Now I have to tell you, there are MANY many other foods I love. MANY. But for this list I had to chose the ultimates. I can't wait to see what yours are! So link up, and grab some paper towels because you'll need them to wipe the drool from your chin!

Don't forget to grab the button from the right side of my blog and post it somewhere in you "My favorite things" post, anf if you need to click it and it will direct you to the instructions page!

Have a GREAT day all!!
