What'd you eat for dinner last night? Homemade spaghetti with turkey meatballs and garlic bread. Thanks, honey!
Favorite food: Pizza--too many low-budget film shoots where that was all we could afford--with special love to Hungry Howie's.
Least favorite food: Calamari--I'm allergic and get hives.
Favorite dessert: Anything with chocolate. Do I sound like a chick?
Favorite local bar and cocktail to order there: Whatever is close with a happy hour. God, I am so cheap!
Favorite thing to cook at home: Homemade pizza. God, I am so boring.
Favorite memory involving food: There was this one time with my wife and chocolate syrup...now we're talking!
Recipe or food tip to share: Tip at least 15 percent, even if they suck. Also, whenever you go somewhere like Pei-Wei where you wait in line and then sit, first put your crap down and save a seat, then go wait in line. I've seen people not get seats, and they lose it.
