Know Me Better 10/6


In my recent reader survey a couple people commented that they wanted to know more about me. I’ve been thinking about how I could share more about myself in a fun, interactive way.

I do a lot of author interviews on this blog. My interview questions are typically on the lighter side because those are the kinds of interviews I like to read.   I thought I’d start by answering some of the author interview questions I frequently ask.  So I bring you….

“Know Me Better”

Each week I will pick 5 questions off of my author interview list to answers. In trying to figure out how to share more about myself I got to thinking that I would love to get to know the readers of my blog better too.  I invite you to share your answers to these questions as well.  You can share them as a comment on this post or share them on your own blog and link up to this post.

Know Me Better 10/6 Questions
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
Night owl, or early bird?
One food you would never eat?
Skittles or M&Ms?

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Chocolate Fudge Brownie (no nuts)
Although I’m trying to avoid refined sugar so I haven’t had real ice cream in way too long.
I’ve found a couple healthy ice cream alternatives that my family enjoys including Maple Pecan (recipe) & Strawberry (recipe).

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
Aebleskivers (recipe) are my favorite but most mornings it’s a Green Smoothiefor me.

Night owl, or early bird?
I get a lot more done in my day when I follow the old adage “Early to Bed, Early to Rise”.  Unfortunately I’m more of a night owl and have trouble getting to bed early and thus trouble getting up early too.

One food you would never eat?
I’m sure there are a lot of things but currently the only thing coming to my mind is persimmons.  I was recently “forced” to eat one at my aunt’s house. It was overripe, super slimy and made me gag. I couldn’t swallow it and couldn’t get the taste out of my mouth.  I don’t think I’ll be eating one anytime soon.

Skittles or M&Ms?
I love chocolate but M&Ms are one of the last things I would choose in a candy aisle.  I would likely choose Skittles first.  On days when I cave and break my no refined sugar rule, I would probably go for a Milky Way Midnight or frozen 3 Musketeers.
