Four Foods on Friday #22

Time to learn more food facts according to me. If you are not interested you can move along. As always be sure to check out Fun Craft and Recipes [1] to join each week and to spread the news so others might join as well.

1. What’s your favorite form of potatoes?
Hmm, I love potatoes so much pretty much any form. The easiest of course is the baked potatoe but I make a lot of mashed potatoes and once and a while au gratin potatoes.
2. Pie crust. Premade or from scratch?
Premade man, I suck at baking.
3. Vegetables. Fresh, frozen or canned?
Fresh is always good but they usually go rotten before I get to finish eating them and/or even get to them so the next best thing is frozen. I don’t like canned veggies.
4. What one dish do you wish you could prepare better?
Anything baked as I burn all of it. But if someone could teach me a good alfredo sauce that is low fat I’d be thrilled.

Pre-made pie crust for me as well. I don’t cook either. 🙂

Hmmm, “low fat” and “alfredo sauce”… I don’t think I’ve ever seen those two phrases in the same sentence before! 😀

And thus my dilemma lol

You burn everything? I think you might need a new oven. I like fresh veggies too but boy do I feel guilty when I forget to use them and have to throw them out.

I posted my linguine alfredo recently.

It’s not exactly low fat, I’m still working on a reduced fat version 😉 .

Karen: That’s exactly my problem, they go bad before I around to them just like some fruits. And, yes, I do need a new oven but I doubt the owner will buy one because technically this one still works and she’s a penny pincher. I need new carpet as well as a few other things but sadly it hasn’t happened and probably won’t until I leave because there is no way she could rent it after me with carpet that’s not even intact, etc.

Thanks chili queen, gonna check it out.

Haha I was thinking the same thing. Low Fat and Alfredo Sauce usually aren’t in the same sentence 😥

Thanks for visiting theNetFool.com, I love what you are doing here… keep up the good work

1. Whatâ??s your favorite form of potatoes?I’m afraid of potatoes coz they are starchy and can make me fat2. Pie crust. Premade or from scratch?Premade. Tastes just as good =). I used the pie crust for a mutton curry pie before.3. Vegetables. Fresh, frozen or canned?The packet frozen ones from Tesco’s are actually really good. Ease the cooking process and value for money.4. What one dish do you wish you could prepare better?Spaghetti Carbonara. Its so difficult to find good ingredients here.

i always have good intentions with fresh veggies, but half the time they go bad before i eat them all.

I do the same thing with fresh vegetables.

Potatoes-‘fraid I’m with most other Americans, & I love fries. But I never feel that is a “form of potato,” more like a form of saturated fat!If you’ve ever had homemade pie crust made by a master (not me)you’ll never go back to anything else. So, I just don’t eat pie.Yah, we all have the problem of how to use up the fresh vegetables before they are not fresh anymore.Brownies-anyone have any tips? It is the one thing I can never cook right-they are either brown rocks or brown goop. ICK! Don’t know what I do wrong!

I use a timer for almost everything I cook. I’m much to impatient to stand around the kitchen waiting for water to boil or a cake to bake. I let the timer call me back when it’s time to check progress or take something out of the oven. The other thing that might help you is a thermometer. If your stove is old the temperature may be “off.” Use a thermometer to make sure you’ve got the right temp before you slide something into the oven. Hope one or the other of these tips can help restore your confidence in baking!

Hmm… I love fries very much that too made of potatoes. Even fresh vegetables are good for health, but sometimes it becomes frozen ones as we keep them in the refrigerators. 😛

Those all sounds relaly yummy.

I love mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables!!

#17 Comment By ernesto On 04/04/2008 @ 1:10 PM

In my case, I just love mashed potato, with lots of butter, butter, and more butter. And I cannot forget the salt and pepper! Other potato food? Potatoes in beef stew are just so good-tasting to eat.
