TMI: KISS THE COOK!

20131204-214428.jpg

I don’t do these TMI posts from Sean at Just A Jeep Guy every week, but on occasion, I see a topic that I can’t resist. Since I love to cook, this one was a no brainer. I had to answer the question. I hope you enjoy my answers.

1. How good of a cook are you?

I’m actually a really good cook. I’ve experimented a lot with different spices and how they taste, so I can usually eat something once and then recreate it. I can also cook a wide variety of food, such as Southern comfort foods, Italian cuisine, Creole and Cajun, Mexican, and various other types of dishes. I’ve never had anyone taste my food that didn’t love it, even when it’s something they don’t normally like. As my aunt usually asks, “Did you doctor it?” My answer is always yes. I’m going to make sure it tastes good before I serve it.

2. Who taught you how to cook?

My grandmama taught me the most about cooking, and my mama helped out a lot as well. They both taught me how to cook good southern food. I learned to cook everything else I cook from watching the Food Network and experimenting with their recipes.

3. Who does the cooking in your home?

I do all of the cooking in my home. Usually, at least once a week or so, I also cook for my neighbors.

4. Do you cook more or eat out more?

I do more cooking than eating out. I enjoy eating out, but I love in a rural area, so eating out is not convenient. I cook what we have at home mostly. This also allows me to regulate the calorie and carb content of my cooking. I almost always make one meat, two vegetables and a bread. The only exception is when I make soups or stews then I only add a bread to that.

5. Are you more of a cook or dessert maker?

I am more of a cook. My mother and I together can make wonderful desserts, but alone, I’m not so good at it. I do make fabulous cookies, though. It’s the one sweet that my mother taught me well enough that I can make cookies and brownies on my own. We used to make a lot of cookies at Christmas time. In fact, we still do, just not together. And I almost forgot, I make a wonderful peach cobbler, but I love to adapt it and use plums instead, which is beyond delicious.

6. What was your worst/funniest cooking moment?

My worst moment is any time I try to fry chicken. My mama can fry a chicken better than anyone I’ve ever known, but I’ve never had her gift, and good fried chicken is a gift.

I don’t know if I’ve ever had a funniest cooking moment. Although I recently made a fake coconut cake for a friend: styrofoam for the cake, rolled-out clay for the icing, and fake snow for the coconut. It looks beautiful and delicious, but you wouldn’t want to eat it.

7. What’s your best dish?

My best dish is Scallopini al Vino, which is veal in a white wine sauce. Pair that with risotto, bacon-wrapped asparagus, some linguini, and a good loaf of Italian or French bread, and along with a good pinot grigio, you have a delicious feast. (The dessert will be in the bedroom.)

I do my best cooking with Italian food, but if you prefer Southern comfort food, I can make a delicious meal by frying some pork chops, cooking collard greens and pink-eyed purple hull peas, with some fried hot water cornbread, that as they say in the South “Will make you slap yo mama!”

8. Is revenge a dish best served cold?

I don’t think revenge is a good dish at all. It’s best if you forgive and forget. Why dwell on something when you should jut move on. It’s best just to let anyone you’d want to take revenge on to just go their merry way, and let that be that.

9. Is the best way to a man’s heart truly through his stomach?

Absolutely! Let me cook for a man with a good appetite, and I’m pretty sure I can have him not only for the rest of the night (I make fabulous French toast for breakfast), but for the rest of his life as well. People have always told me that I’d make a wonderful husband, I just haven’t been given the chance to prove it. One day, I will though, and I have no doubt that my cooking skills will close the deal.

BONUS
Have you made whoopee in the kitchen? Which foods have you used to spice up your love life?

Nope, I’ve never made whoopee in the kitchen, but it is a fantasy of mine. I’ve never used food to spice up my love life, mainly because it’s nearly non-existent. However,that is something I would do if I had the chance. I will say though that Charles Anthony’s Restaurant at “The Pub” in Montgomery, Alabama, has a creme brûlée for dessert is truly an orgasmic experience. I’m serious, take one bite and your dick gets rock hard, eat all of it, and you’ve had an orgasm in your pants. If you are able to resist the orgasm, then you will be so horny by the time you get home, that your significant other won’t know what hit him.


TMI QUESTIONS: I’M FALLING FOR YOU

20130926-055141.jpg

I’M FALLING FOR YOU
How does Fall rank on your list of favorite seasons?

Fall is my favorite season. My birthday is in fall, but most importantly, I love the weather. Alabama usually has wonderful fall weather. It’s cooler without being cold, and the scorching heat is pretty much gone. I also love the beauty of the fallen leaves.

2. What are your favorite fall fashions?

Browns and other earth tones tend to look good on my with my olive complexion and brown hair and brown eyes. Also, since I usually don’t wear short sleeve button-up shirts, it’s nice to be able to wear long sleeve shirts in relative comfort.

3. What are your favorite fall foods?

I love hearty soups and stews during the fall. A good chili or Brunswick stew are my favorites. They just seem to fit with fall for me. There are also a few foods that I can only get at this time of year, such as fresh green boiled peanuts, chestnuts, and scuppernongs. Yummy one and all.

4. Have you ever FALLEN and couldn’t get up?

Thankfully, no.

5. Fall is the start of the new TV season, which show are you most anticipating?

I’m really looking forward to the season premiere of The Big Bang Theory tonight.

6. What fall activities like apple picking, hiking, foliage trips, do you enjoy or plan on doing?

None of the above, but I will go to some football games. In Alabama, that is the quintessential fall activity.

7. Halloween is __________.

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Halloween parties are so much fun, and I love decorating for Halloween.

8. Do you dress up for Halloween?

It’s not a Halloween if you don’t dress up. This year I’m going as a Scotsman in a kilt. Anybody want to guess what will be under my kilt. Hopefully, someone will want to find out.

9. Do you have daylight savings time where you live?

Yes, and unlike most people, I enjoy the days getting shorter and darkness coming earlier. I’m such a night person.

10. Thanksgiving is __________.

Thanksgiving is delicious and filled with what I’m most thankful for, my family.

11. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?

Without a doubt, my favorite Thanksgiving food is pecan pie. Though if the dressing is good, I love that too.

BONUS
Do you FALL asleep after sex? Have you FALLEN out of bed while having sex?

Since my refractory period is usually relatively short, I’m usually ready to go again instead of falling a sleep. However, I certainly don’t mind curling up in a man’s arms after sex.

I’ve never fallen out of bed during sex.


TGIF

20130822-210815.jpg

It’s the end of the second week of school. So far things seem to be going well, and the students are responding well with my new “I’m not taking any of your crap” attitude. So tonight, I plan on getting my drink on with friends. The question is: should I drink Vodka or Beer? I will probably go for beer, but I haven’t totally decided, vodka goes down too smoothly, especially when it’s mixed with something and I might have too much. I always stick to only one type of drink a night, so that I don’t get a hangover or get sick. No matter what I drink, I plan on having a good time.
