Something New: Food Tag!

The other day I found this post from Food & Baker! Doing this tag is definitely new for me so I decided to try it. Plus, since this blog is new, I thought it would help you get an idea of the person encouraging you do TRY NEW THINGS! 

I hope you’ll not only take a look at this post, but use it as a template for your own to keep the cycle going.

1. What’s your favorite breakfast?
Eggs, bacon, pancakes. I pretty much order that combo at any diner I go to.

2. How do you drink your coffee?
Black. Always. However, there is one exception. On Sundays I write my blog posts at one of the only cafes where I live. Their regular coffee is rubbish, so I get a cappuccino.


3. What’s on your favorite sandwich?
My favorite sandwich is a shrimp poboy. Fried shrimp, dressed, on a foot long piece Leidenheimer French bread.


4. Soup or Salad?
Soup. Always soup. I eat salad, but really it’s just because it’s easy. By the way, in Louisiana gumbo is a soup. HAHA.


5. What’s your favorite cookbook?
I don’t use a lot of cookbooks, but I get a lot from my job. Right now I’m really into The Backyard Homestead Book Of Kitchen Know-How. There are a ton of valuable skills included as well as recipes. It’s what go me started on baking sourdough.
