Friday 5 - Staples

Having myself a nice, relaxing Friday off work.  (This requires that I don't think about what tomorrow, a Saturday at work, will be like.)  So I'm considering my taxes, doing some laundry, and posting Friday 5!  Yeah, that's how we roll up in here.  Um-hm  So, anyway, feel free to participate on your blog or in comments.  Knowing about your staples feels important to me! 

1. Of all the hundreds of sizes and shapes bread seems to come in, what is your favorite?  This is a tough one, because I really like bread...all kinds of bread.  I think I will go with squaw bread.  It is so nice and dense and a little sweet.  I get this tuna sandwich, where the tuna is mixed with yogurt, no relish in it, on squaw bread.  It is the most delicious thing ever. 

2. What’s your favorite thing to eat with rice?  Also a tough one, because virtually everything can be eaten with rice.  Well, bread and rice is a bit much....but anyway, my choice is going to be lemon chicken.  Put the lemon chicken on top of the rice and let that lemon glaze get all in there....mmmmm.  It is the most delicious thing ever.

3.What are your feelings about milk?  I've always liked milk.  My parents never had trouble getting me to drink my milk.  I notice milk seems to engender strong feelings for some reason.  Also they type of milk you drink seems to incite strong opinions.  At home, we keep non-fat.  I worked my way down to that over the years, so don't think I entered into a compact with the watery milk lightly.  But now I like it just fine.  I like soy milk too.  But any milk, unless it is the base of a soup or hot beverage, had better be ICE cold. Then it is the most delicious thing ever.

4. What was wrapped in the tortilla you most recently ate?  I had some El Pollo Loco with my mom yesterday at lunchtime.  So, the last thing I had in a tortilla was chicken, lettuce, salsa, and cheese.  Chicken soft tacos.  It was the most delicious thing ever.  Uh-oh.  I believe I may have repeated myself a bit here.  haha!  It is insane how hungry I am getting doing this Friday 5.

5. How many staplers are there in your house and where are they?  Ah!  A non-food one, at last :-)  I have one small stapler in my house and it lives in the little desk drawer in the livingroom.  That was easy! 
Uh-oh...no wait, I just inadvertently lied.  I thought - oh, I can go take a picture of my stapler for the post - and the stapler is not there.  Hm.  So it is somewhere else...or possibly I now have zero staplers in my house.  Here is all that remains of the once proud stapler...
 
The lonely staples and the staple remover.  Where is their good friend stapler???


Thanks for participating, and may your weekend be warm and fluffy, dipped in milk, sugar, and eggs, and fried on a griddle!

I was kind of a worried that you would end your stapler response with "It is the most delicious thing ever." I've never had staplers for dinner, so I would've been jealous.

I'm beginning to think I should order a meal from the Mexican restaurant down the street and pick it up on the way home. I'm thinking tamales, though, not burritos or enchiladas.

I hope you have an awesome weekend, working or relaxing!

I've never liked sweet-ish breads, unless they are something like cranberry nut bread. But for sandwiches or just snacking on, no. Other than that, I tend to prefer whole-grainy sorts of breads. Ad you're right, rice goes with nearly everything.

Tara: haha! But look how unpredictable I am! Staplers are okay, but not the most delicious things ever...so don't be jealous you've never eaten one.
Hope you're having a good weekend too :-)

Secret: I like whole-grainy breads too. Pretty much if it is bread, I'm in.

I love sour dough. I guess I can't help being Irish...

Churlita: Oooh, sourdough would be right up there for me, too. Erin go braugh!

I'm happy to see you gave the correct answer for the best thing to eat with rice. Tara said something other than chicken, I think she said shrimp. I'm still angry with her for her wrong answer.

Sebastien: I'm so relieved to have made the right choice. Whew!
