Here it is, the food ABCs of me:
A is for Apple: What’s your favorite variety?
I love a Honeycrisp from right here in good ole Michigan. Organic of course. Did you know that apples are one of the "you must buy organic" fruits?
B is for Bread: Regardless of nutrition, what is your favorite type?
I adore a great fresh wheat bread. Being part Swede I also love Limpia and Rye bread too.
C is for Cereal: What is your favorite kind currently? (just one!)
Hmmm.....tough question. I love Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, Raisin Bran, Grape Nuts, Cornflakes (with bananas) and if I am REALLY naughty, I love me some Captn Crunch with Crunchberries!! I never buy that though other wise it would be gone in a minute!)
D is for Donuts: You might not currently eat them, but what kind do you fancy?
I am a fan of the raised, glazed donut. I don't eat them often but when I do, Krispy Kremes are the best!

Anyway you make them for me! I like them poached for eggs benedict the most but also love scrambled with ketchup!

I love Breyer's natural vanilla (the kind with the bean specks) topped with salted nuts and.

N is for nutrients: Do you likes carbs, fats, or proteins best?
Thats a damn good question! I really am a carb lover but I do adore a fatty piece of pork or beef too. If I had to pick one though, it would be carbs!

Y is for youth: What food reminds you of your childhood?
Perch that I use to catch with my grandpa and Mom's sloppy joes. My mother is an amazing cook and she would slave over incredible meals for our family. My brother and I were asses and like to be crazy so one day we told her that we didn't want to eat her cooking anymore. We told her we wanted sloppy joes forever. She did just that. We ate sloppy joes for weeks and never complained again after that! What a great memory!
Z is for zucchini: How do you prepare it?
I love to sautee it in butter/olive oil with red onions and tons of fresh garlic. I also like it lightly breaded in italian breadcrumbs and pan fried with marinara sauce.
