Love all the responses I've gotten on the questionnaire. Keep them coming and I'll keep posting. Thanks so much!
Current City: Houston, Texas (Heights area)
Do you cook?: Absolutely. I find it relaxing after a long day at work.
What is your favorite meal to cook? Most days, spaghetti but baked chicken on the other days.
What food do you absolutely hate? Oh man, my list of HATES is longer than that of my LOVES. However, I hate me a banana with such passion that a movie should be made about it. Knowing that there is a banana pudding whatever thing in the fridge for the office employees celebrating a birthday that month makes me want to don my Hulk hands and smash.
What is your favorite dessert? Same-creme brulee. I love cracking the top and crunching down on it. Yum, in the words of Top Chef's Angelo, "So sexy!"
What food have you never eaten, but wish you could try? Hmmm, specific food, fish cooked in that salt dome. Not a big seafood fan but I would love to try this.
What is your favorite restaurant and what do you order? This varies. Right now, I love the tacos de bistec from Tacos del Julio. Little lemon on top of the soft steak meat in a greasy tortilla. Yum.
You're on death row, what's your last meal? Fajita tacos with beans in a flour tortilla from Laredo Taqueria with a Mexican coke.
Current City: Nashville, Tennessee
Do you cook? As much as I can. It's my stress reliever.
What is your favorite meal to cook? Any kind of dessert. Cakes, pies, cookies. You name it, I'll bake it.
What food do you absolutely hate? Celery. The taste, the texture, the stringy-ness. It's horrid.
What is your favorite dessert? It's a tie between Tiramisu and Creme Brulee. I love the silky texture of Tiramisu flavored with a hint of espresso. The crunchy, sugary topping on Creme Brulee in contrast to the smooth custard below is to die for.
What food have you never eaten, but wish you could try? Steamed lobster. I've had lobster in dishes, but never by itself. I'd like to learn how to eat it properly.
What is your favorite restaurant and what do you order?
There are so many! One high on my list is Brio in Birmingham, Alabama. For lunch, they have this Romano Crusted Chicken Salad. It's served over greens with chopped egg, scallions, tomatoes, bacon, cucumber, and topped with a creamy Parmesan dressing that is heaven. All those flavors combine together perfectly for one fantastic lunch.
You’re on death row, what’s your last meal?
Filet mignon cooked medium, baked potato with a ton of sour cream and chives, my mom's dinner rolls, macaroni and cheese, pulled pork from The Perfect Pig in White House, Tennessee, pad thai from Royal Thai in Nashville, unbaked fudge cookies, creme brulee, tiramisu, and yellow cake cupcakes with chocolate frosting! Oh and several glasses of Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling
