What'd you eat for dinner last night? I ate a granola bar.

Favorite food: My favorite food has to be pizza, or Peter Piper Pizza buffet, more specifically. I can't resist all-you-can-eat deliciousness at a reasonable price.

Least favorite food: I hate broccoli.

Favorite dessert: The candy at Sweets and Beats is fantastic; I especially enjoy their gummy section.

Favorite local restaurant and meal to order there: I'm on a quest to eat a Rueben sandwhich at every single resturant in town. So far, Scott's Generations Deli on 7th Street is winning the race.

Favorite local bar and cocktail to order there: Cider at Steve's Greenhouse Grill.

Favorite thing to cook at home: Salmon or tilapia with lemon seasoning.

Favorite memory involving food: My favorite memory involving food was in high school when I bought a giant chocolate Santa Claus from a girl, and then gave it to my dad as Chanukah gift. Needless to say, he wasn't very amused, and it was I who ate Santa later that night.

Recipe or food tip to share: A good way to get back at your enemies is to invite them over and put a lot of curry in their dish. I assure you, this trick works with the desired effect every time
