What's the last thing you ate? cold steamed artichoke
What's your favourite cheese? All of them. Maybe Jarlesburg has a very slight edge. I can live on cheese.
What's your favourite fish? Halibut
What's your favourite fruit? Cherries (I once at 4 lbs at a sitting!)
When, if ever, did you start liking olives? Too young to recall. I started on cocktail olives when I was 6.
When, if ever, did you start liking beer? I was 2 years old. My parents gave up beer, because my father let me taste his, when I demanded it, and I drained the glass. From that point on, it was "Where's MY beer!" whenever they had any. Hence they stopped drinking it.
When, if ever, did you start liking shellfish? Probably when we lived in Hawaii when I was 5. I know I ate a lot of it then. Loved pickled octopus, too. The old Japanese guy at the general store in Kahului used to give me pieces to chew on.
What was the best thing your mum/dad/guardian used to make? Before my mom got weird and only ate "health food" like grape smoothies with wheat germ, she made killer creamed tuna with white wine in the sauce. Her filet mignon in Tokay was great, too. (I learned to cook both for my father, when she stopped cooking.)
What's the native specialty of your home town? Chuck Wagon Barbecue (but nowadays, Tourist Food)
What's your comfort food? Creamed spinach. Followed closely by steel cut oat porridge with butter.
What's your favourite type of chocolate? White, though some claim it's not chocolate at all. Followed closely by bittersweet. I dislike milk chocolate.

What's your biscuit or cookie of choice? Ginger, if the ginger is strong enough.
What's your ideal breakfast? Breakfast? Coffee. I don't eat until at least 11 am, or my blood sugar crashes hard in the mid-morning. If I have to eat, I like oatmeal.
