1. Favorite band with some sort of food in its name:
I've been listening to the new Andrew Bird a lot lately. And since chickens are "birds," I hope that counts...Plus, the album is called Nobel Beast, and cows are "beasts." So....

2. Give us your favorite vegetable and how you like it prepared:
Butternut Squash roasted in the oven with a bit of butter and salt. [ed. note - you are a girl after my own heart.]

3. If you could only eat 1 flavor of ice cream for the rest of your life, what would it be?

4. Favorite food show:
Top Chef. Sadly I have class on Wednesday evening and have missed the last few episodes, I may have to get DVR for this show alone.

5. Please describe your ideal 2 am drunken feast:
Regular Coke and Chachos from La Pasadita. The Chachos generally make me sick in the morning, but I like to blame that on the alcohol, not the greasy, cheesey, meaty mess that is Chachos.

6. Favorite steak-house side dish:
I don't think I've ever been to an official steak-house, but I was at my parent's for dinner last Sunday and my dad threw together some home made Macaroni and Cheese as a side for our steaks. Amazing.

7. If you live in Chicago, give us your favorite restaurant here in
Chi-town. If not, share with us the number one spot in your city
Probably Tank in Roscoe Village. It's a pretty standard Sushi place, but on weekends they have half price rolls.

8. How do you take your coffee?
Lots of half & half and a few Splendas.

9. Top 3 condiments:
• Honey [ed. note - nice choice!]
• Ranch Dressing
• Sriracha

10. How do you like d'em apples?
Dipped in peanut butter.

Tank also has a wonderful dessert that has warm cookie dough wrapped in filo dough-ish stuff served as a roll with mint garnish as wasabi and rasberry sauce as soy sauce. So so so so good. Mmmmmm Tank.
