How do you like it?

I need to know what you think.

In recent conversations among friends, I have learned of some very strong opinions in very specific food preferences.

String Cheese
Do you eat it the 'adult way,' one bite at a time, like a banana?
Or do you eat it the 'kid way,' pulling it apart, strand by strand, as its name implies?

(I eat it one bite at a time. But it's all about textures and control for me.)

Ice Cream
Do you like your ice cream firm? The harder the better?
Or do you like it softer... perhaps a little soupy, if you will?
Do you microwave a bowl of ice cream? You know... the good ol' 12 seconds... (My cousin's microwave actually has a 'soften ice cream' button. If that isn't a quality microwave, I don't know what is.)

(I'm a softie.)

Well? What is it? Because I'm pretty sure you have an opinion on each of these topics. It's also possible that you are lactose intolerant, and you would prefer that I stop mentioning dairy products. Fair enough.

Do tell.

And if you need to explain your answer, then comment away.

Ok, well, Tricia we've discussed the ice cream firmness so now I will fill you on my eating of string cheese. I'm more of pull it apart like a kid kind of girl. Now if I'm running somewhere or get bored of the little "strings" I'll pop the rest in my mouth.

I really don't like string cheese - which is surprising since I adore Velveeta! And, I'll take ice cream anyway I can get it - I'm not picky!!! (As you can tell from my impressive physique!) :)

I still string my string cheese. But not in the tiniest pieces like I did when I was little.

As far as ice cream, I don't like the soup, but I can take a variety of hard/softness. There has to be some texture, but it doesn't have to be hard.

Have you seen Wall*e? In that movie the humans drink everything. And really, I don't believe I care to drink my food.

String Cheese: like a kid.
Ice Cream: no thanks.

string cheese: like a kid
ice cream: I'll eat it any way at all (except warm, ew.) But I hate being in charge of the scooping if it is rock hard. Maybe I need that fancy microwave--except Vince cussed quite a bit installing the one I have now, so I'd better not mention a fancier one. ;)

And what is with that crazy girl Alli who said "no thanks" to ice cream? I don't think I trust a non-ice cream eating girl. Please tell me she eats chocolate!

You would be happy to know that I do eat some chocolate - although that wasn't really on my "like" list until I was prego with my second baby. I would still MUCH rather eat me some cheese and crackers than something sweet. I bet my mom had something to do with that!

Anyway, ice cream...no thanks.
