Sunday Stealing Q & A Fun

I am joining Bev for this week's Sunday Q & A.

Today it is all about food.  Lets face it, cooking is not my forte' so we're just going to have some fun today.  Okay?

1.  How often do you make food and eat it?

Almost every day.  We choose to eat at home most of the time because of costs, dietary requirements, and mostly because we just like to do our own thing in the evenings.  We are very high class folks, in case you weren't aware.

2.  Do you consider toasting bread, preparing instant noodles, or boiling an egg to be cooking? Why or why not?

Some days, that is about as close to cooking as I choose to get.

3.  What’s your favorite dish to make?

The dish of leftovers from the night before?

We rarely eat the same thing over and over; however, we do like asparagus and salmon baked in foil packets.  Easy and delicious, not to mention healthy.

4.  Cooking or baking: what’s more fun? What’s more difficult?

Cooking would have to be more fun, and baking the more difficult, simply because I don't do it.

5.  Who did most of the cooking in your house when you were growing up?

How about all of the cooking?  My Mom!

6.  How have you learned the cooking skills that you have?

A lot of trial and mostly error!

7.   Have you ever taken a cooking course? If so, what did you learn? If not, would you like to do one? What would you like to learn?

I took Home Economics all through high school, but this could not be construed as a cooking class; therefore I learned very little.  My teachers gave good grades for appearing interested.  No, I have no plans to take a cooking class, and am frankly not interested in learning any new cooking skill.

8.   Have you tried cooking food from another culture? What did you prepare? How was it?

If using curry counts, then yes.

9.   Is it cost-effective to do your own cooking? Can you save money by cooking?

Of course!  Why else would one choose to do it?

10.  Would you rather do the cooking or do the washing up afterwards?

I actually do both at the same time.  I wash as I go and have minimum cleanup afterwards.  I cannot stand a messy kitchen.

11.  Do you use recipes to cook? If so, where do you get the best recipes? Do you get them from friends, family, online, or from cookbooks?

12.  Have you ever tried to prepare some food and just totally ruined it? What happened?

Nothing gets thrown out in our house.  Just say'n'!

13. Do you prefer cooking at home or eating out at a restaurant? Why?

Refer to #1

14. Is cooking a social activity for you? Do you like to do it with other people, or do your prefer to do it alone?

At our house, cooking is not a social event.  It is strictly one of necessity.  Occasionally we will combine efforts on a meal, but most of the time, it's either him or me.  Of course there are always times he comes in real handy.

15. Do you have a lot of cooking equipment? How often do you use it all? Do you have any pieces of equipment that you rarely ever use?

When we moved recently, we culled down to the bare minimum of what we would need, so there is very little excess in our kitchen.  But, I'm still trying to figure out why I kept the cookie sheets.

Thanks for joining in the Q & A fun this week!

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. I love your answers.
    #4, #9, and #10 are like me.
    I really enjoyed the "Give It To Mikey" picture.
    Have a great Sunday.

  2. Libby, you are a funny lady! I'm with you on the baking...the Urban Farmer will get an urge to make a cake. My oldest daughter baked and decorates beautiful cakes. Sure didn't get that skill from her mom.

  3. I like to clean as I go too. Loved your answers! Have a nice day!

  4. Great pictures. I loved the cooking cartoon.

    Re #12, nothing goes to waste around here either--it's why we have dogs!


I do love reading your comments, so please share your thoughts with me.
