Kitchen Survey

Image Hosted by

1. How many meals does most of your family eat at home each week?
We always eat breakfast at home and lunch and most everyday dinner. We go out for date night on Mondays and the kids eat pizza. Then on Friday night we have family night and we order pizza.

2. How many cookbooks do you own?
Several, I would say somewhere in the 20s. I also love Taste of Home magazine.

3. When you cook, do you follow the recipe pretty closely, or do you use recipes primarily to give you ideas?
I usually always add or subtract something from the recipe. It's difficult to find all the ingredients the recipes call for in Croatia. I very seldom cook from a recipe, just mainly baking, birthdays and holidays.

4. What's your favorite kitchen task related to meal planning and preparation?
Hmmmm, Tasting! :0)

5. Do you plan menus before you shop?
Yea, usually a month in advance, since we go to Austria once a month to buy bulk. Usually I buy the main ingredients for the meals and then fill in the spaces with things like fresh meat, milk, eggs and bread as we go.

6. What are your three favorite kitchen tools or appliances?
Pop Corn Popper ;0)Food ProcessorPampered Chef Chopper

7. If you could buy one new thing for your kitchen, money was no object, and space not an issue, what would you most like to have?
A Kitchen Aid Mixer, the weight keeps me from shipping one from the states.

8. Since money and space probably are objects, what are you most likely to buy next?
Teflon Pans

9. Do you have a separate freezer for storage?
Yes, we just bought a small one. Because we buy bulk in Austria once a month we have to have a place to store our bounty.

10. Grocery shop alone or with others?
With the husband or kids usually, I like it that way. We are very co-dependent.

11. How many meatless main dish meals do you fix in a week?
Breakfast, Most are meatless unless it's sausage gravy. This should change as we found real American bacon in Hungary.Lunch, Usually sandwiches, so we usually have some sort of protein.Dinner, We always have a meat, the family likes it that way, but I could do without it.

12. If you have a decorating theme in your kitchen, what is it? Favorite kitchen colors?
My kitchen walls are a soft yellow, but I have red accessories and bright red, orange, green and yellow valances. Kinda a salsa look. I would love to color wash the walls but since we're moving in the next 5 months I think I'll wait.

13. What's the first thing you ever learned to cook, and how old were you?
Pancakes I think and I was probably about 11. My mom was and still is a great country cook. I found this great survey over at Kelli's
