5 Food Facts... the grouchy edition


Say that five times fast. Five food facts. Five foo facts. Five oh forget about it! Asthma Girl tagged me for a 5 food facts but I'm not passing it out to anybody else. *as everyone breathes a sigh of relief.

1. I hate peas. If you're looking for a pea recipe you need to go look some place else because you will not find one here.

2. I love corn on the cob but that's it. Let me clarify, if you put corn in salsa or anything else for that matter, I'll pick it out. I won't be rude about it or anything but there is something about corn and peas, I don't like how it explodes in your mouth. Yuck! My husband didn't realize these two above facts until this past year and we've been married for 13 years. See I keep my food pet peeves on the down low. Umm, yeah right. *rolling my eyes.

3. The only canned vegetables or fruit you'll find in my house are canned beans, tomatoes and olives.

4. I love cherries but I hate them cooked. So again if you are looking for a cherry pie recipe, you're not going to find it here. In ECM's cooking religion it's sacrilege to cook cherries. If you commit this sin, don't let me know because it will get ugly. I'll make you drop down and give me twenty.

5. I live in Stockton, California. The 5th biggest agricultural county in the U.S. If it's grown, you can get it here. My biggest pet peeves are that local people in the summer buy their fruit and veggies at the grocery store. Why? I mean it was probably grown and harvested here, then shipped to some grocery stores distribution center in 50-100 miles away, then shipped right back to Stockton. Then they charge you 1.00 per pound, when you can go to the farmers market and get it for .35 cents per pound. Does this make any sense to anyone? Also, you would think that you could get CSA (community sustainable agriculture) boxes here. We have a little cafe that specializes in fresh churrios but you can't get a CSA box? WTF!

ECM,
I love the new Masthead. Absolutely adorable.

I'm gonna have to take you on about the peas, corn and cooked cherry pie thingie. Nah, to each their own.

I'm with you on the canned stuff. Its just that I can most of my own stuff from the garden. What I don't can I freeze.

Nods, I hate mixed vegetables (corn+peas+carrots), that is frozen and sold in packets at supermarts, yuck. I always pick them out of my fried rice (a Chinese dish that basically fries anything with rice). I am so with you on the mini-explosion thingy with corn and peas. :P
