This week’s Friday Five is about food. Figures that they would do this, with Christmas coming up and all the foodness that will be coming.
What’s your favorite ice cream topping?
I really don’t have a favourite topping for my ice-cream. When I was a kid, we’d have canned peaches or pineapple, and the juice freezing into the ice cream was damn tasty. It made me really appreciate Vanilla. Nowadays, I’m just as likely to get a hot fudge sundae with peanuts. I’ve never really been much for caramel on my ice cream. *In* my ice cream, though…that’s another story!
What’s your favorite pizza topping?
Pepperoni, hands-down. Sometimes, depending on the pizzaria, I’ll add mushrooms, sausage, and/or red onion to the mix, but pepperoni is usually the main component.
What’s your favorite thing to sprinkle cocoa powder on?
I don’t, usually. I generally find cocoa powder to be a little too bitter for it to be a garnish. However…see below 🙂
What’s your favorite thing to put whipped cream on?
What *isn’t* my favourite thing to put whipped cream on? Instead of buying the commercial, pre-whipped, pre-sweetened stuff, I just buy whipping cream and use my hand-mixer to blend it with some splenda and vanilla. Sometimes, I even add a little peppermint, or cocoa powder (see? I told you we’d come back to this). For a low-carber, whipped cream isn’t just a topping, it can also be the dessert itself. A little goes a long way! As for my favourite thing to put whipped cream onto? I’d have to say Pumpkin Pie.
What do you like to put upon a cracker?
Peanut Butter. Oh, once in a while I’ll mix things up by putting some cheese on my cracker (provalone is nice), but on the whole, my favourite cracker topping is good old PB. A special treat for me is the sweeter, whole-grain crackers with baked brie and a bit of jam. Yummers!
