Welcome to the place where your two bloggers ask each other one question each week. We hope you enjoy them as your learn a bit more about us – sometimes we even learn more about each other!
Ray’s question to Karen:
Q: You have more than once shared your love of potatoes with us – does that love also include the sweet potato?
A: On the whole, I do like sweet potato, but only sometimes. Please do not give me a baked sweet potato with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar. And that casserole with the marshmallows on top? Yuck. I do like roasted or fried sweet potatoes that are salted and spiced with something like hot paprika or cayenne. I haven’t had one in a good long while, but growing up, I liked homemade sweet potato pie better than pumpkin. There is a local restaurant/bakery that makes a sweet potato cake that is legendary, and for good reason. So, the answer is yes, but as you can see, with qualifications.
Karen’s Question to Ray:
Q: What vegetable do you hate?
A: At one time I would have said asparagus, but I have grown to like it – provided it isn’t overcooked, which makes the flavor too strong. I like most vegetables really, but I’d have to say okra is one that I don’t care for. I really think it is more of a textural thing rather than the flavor. I just can’t handle that slick and slimy feeling!
