VeganMoFo: Survey

I've not done a survey on this blog before, so I thought this was a good way to get a post done for MoFo :) This one is from Liz at Food Snobbery is my Hobbery.

1. Name a song that involves food in some way.
 - Lollipop
2. What criteria do you use when choosing a new cookbook to buy?
 - Whatever fits my current interest. A bread cookbook is probably next.
3. What did you eat today?
 - Leftover peanut noodle salad, broccoli chowder, and fruit
4. Name a vegan food that you know exists but you have never tried.
 - Faux shrimp
5. The Food Network just called and needs you to start your new show tomorrow. What will the title of the show be?
 - Smells Delicious
6. Favorite hot sauce or other spicy condiment?
 - Depends on what kind of food I'm eating. Salsa or Tapatio for Mexican, Siracha for Asian, Trader Joe's for general hot sauce.
7. How old were you when you became vegetarian/vegan?
 - 23 the first time, brief relapse, then 24.
8. Favorite vegan cheeze?
 - Teese
9. Cutest baby animal?
 - Um. All of them? duh. 
10. Favorite type of jam/jelly/marmalade/preserves?
 - Boysenberry for preserves hands down. But I love fruit butters too.
11. Do you take any vitamins/supplements?
 - Not consistently, I eat a varied diet, including a few fortified foods like soy milk. And I take a tablespoon of Original Himalayan Crystal Salt solution dissolved in water every morning. It's a natural source of every trace mineral (all 84).
12. What food/dish most embodies the Fall season?
 - I can't pick just one. Apples, pumpkins, squash, stew, all things baked. 
13. What food would you have a hard time living without?
 - Spices
14. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
 - Tea
15. It's 10PM and you're starving. What do you eat?
 - Quick "refried" beans (smashed canned pintos), guacamole, and chips
16. If you have an animal companion, what is his/her favorite food?
 - Kalyra likes seaweed, Kunin likes almost everything, and Jewel likes everything except maybe raw onion. No joke, we can't leave anything on the counter. They will all eat bread and Jewel has started even eating tomatoes and bananas that I leave out. It's pretty obnoxious.
17. Worst injury you've gotten in the kitchen?
 - I cut my finger pretty deep once. And I have several burn scars on my arms.
18. When you have a food-related question, who do you call?
 - Google
19. Summer is ending- What food will you miss most?
 - Peaches and apricots 
20. What snacks do you keep in your purse/backpack/desk at work?
 - Barbara's Shredded Oats
21. Favorite soup to make on a rainy day?
 - Veggie soup
22. What's your favorite combination of fresh vegetable and/or fruit juices?
 - My Green Smoothie
23. Favorite brand of root beer?
 - Virgil's
24. What is one dish that you have never but would like to veganize?
 - Beef Stew

Here is Jewel eating a yellow cherry tomato that she took out of the bag we got in our CSA basket. I think that was her third one of the day. Ridiculous.

The only "people food" that my cats will eat is Pirate's Booty. I can't believe your eat tomatoes!

Great survey! It was really fun to read.
