It's Friday! You know what that means!

Here are this week’s four questions.

#1. American cheese. Sliced fresh or prepackaged processed cheese product?
I don't really like cheese, except for goat and The Laughing Cow swiss cubes. However, when I'm going to be serving it (American Cheese) up, it must be fresh sliced. That rubbery processed stuff scares me! Then again, maybe it has a loner shelf life, so I'm sure it works for someone.

#2. What is your favorite cracker?
Reduced Fat Wheat Thins. Oh that salt and crunch, yumm!

#3. What hot breakfast cereal do you like? Think oatmeal, farina, grits, etc.
McCanns Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal. Throw some chopped apples and cinnamon in it, yum!

#4. Share a recipe that uses corn.
Mardi Gras Jicama Slaw

1 1/2 pounds jicama
3/4 cup low fat sour cream or 0% Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed, or 1 ear of fresh corn, shucked, kernels removed
1/2 cup (cooked) black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/8 cup rice vinegar
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt

Peel and shred the jicama with a cheese grater, using the largest holes or the julienne blade of a food processor, and place in a bowl. Blend in the sour cream, scallions, corn, black beans, parsley, rice vinegar, cayenne pepper, and salt.

LOL Looks like we have a couple of things in common. I don't really like cheese but I love wheat crackers.

I'm with you on the American Cheese - it's just not a favorite of mine. Oh, and REAL, old fashioned oatmel is a must. That instant stuff? Bah!
