Whoops.

Paper
* BBQ: takes the whole weekend to make or take out?

* metal or non-stick?
Metal, usually–don’t feel as nervous leaving it sit for days in the sink. Not the most noble reason, I know…

* cast iron or stainless?
Stainless–less mysterious rules about how to maintain it.

* cutting board: silicon or wood?
Silicone, because they can roll up to pour without spilling.

* knife: carbon steel or stainless?
Um, I don’t really think I’d notice the difference. Probably use stainless currently, but not sure.

* Kitchen Aide or hand mixer?
Hand mixer, but it is made by KitchenAid.

* cooktop: gas, electric, induction?
Gas.

* side-by-side, freezer on top, fridge on top?
Have always had freezer on top, but that’s always seemed completely wrong.

* apron or whoops?
Whoops.

* mashed potatoes: by hand, ricer, or mixer?
By hand.

* sandwich or wrap?
Sandwich; can’t stand flour tortillas or similar nonsense used in wraps.

* pb & _________ ?
GRAPE jam or jelly (whichever has less corn syrup).

* pancakes: syrup or applesauce?
Syrup normally; applesauce and sour cream both on potato pancakes.

* cake: scratch or mix?
Scratch; helps prevent it from becoming a frequent habit.

* chili: beans or no?
Sure, why not?

* napkin: cloth or paper?
Try to use cloth; generally end up using a paper towel or sleeve. Which counts as cloth, right?

* BBQ: takes the whole weekend to make or take out?
Take out; this is one of the few things that’s still too intimidating to try myself.

* chicken: white or dark?
Have been leaning more toward dark lately–more juice and flavor.

* ice cream: cone or dish?
Nah, just straight outta the pint container. Always pints, to provide some semblance of a limit to the immoderation.

Geez, that makes me sound like a total slob, doesn’t it?
