Well for starters, do you want my special questions (see Sprout's getting to know page for examples) or standard ones?

1. I would totally own a restaurant! I would call it "Eat!" That way, when people asked where you were going, you could say "I'm going to 'Eat!'"

2. Sunny-side up on a piece of wheat toast.

3. I have a couple heroes.
-First and foremost, my FIL. He's the ultimate family-man without being Clark Griswold. He does what he has to do for his family and is an outstanding leader.
-Secondly, Alton Brown; without him and his show I wouldn't be into cooking like I am. I started watching his show because I thought it was interesting and goofy but I soon realized that I wanted to do all the things he was doing... and here we are.

1. What color is deliciousness?

2. If robots had taste buds what would be their favorite food?

3. Do you remember your dreams when you wake up and if so, do you have a favorite that is shareable on the board?

4. What character trait do you most value in yourself?

What is your favourite smell?

Describe what kind of person you are in 3 words?

1. Burnt popcorn-j/k! Fresh coffee grounds (nice question!)
2. Curious Pessimistic Hungry
3. Italy. I love the photos I see of Rome and the art/culture that is borne of that region. I feel like I need to experience it in person rather than a photograph or a book. I just want to smell the air there..

1. Golden Brown
2. Co-co Wheats (yuck)
3. I rarely remember them; usually when I do it's of being at work and not taht enjoyable.. I need some beach dreams.
4. Being a perfectionist. It drives me crazy and makes me proud all at the same time.

I do like to read.. almost to a fault. When I start reading a book I don't complete any other non-vital tasks until the book is finished. I really enjoy books that "take you somewhere." Something like Dan Brown's early novels or even Steinbeck. In the past year I've only read 2: The Catcher in the Rye (hadn't read that since 5th grade, it was like a new book) and The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris.
My wife hates it when I read.. I can ignore anything (including her) for hours.. and hours....

What was the first thing you deep fried?

Has your wife written a thank-you letter to AB yet for inspiring you to cook?

Do you think AB would work on my husband? Jk, you don't really have to answer that one!

1.First thing I ever deep fried was chicken. Chicken and fries. It was good but it's gotten so much better in the years I've been making it.

2.No, she sent him a gift basket

3.I'm really not sure. My good friend really enjoys the show and has seen every episode yet he hates to cook. I could be worth a try, though.
