Favorite foods: Enchiladas, BBQ chicken and rice, and anything from Cafe Rio or Tito's Tacos.
Favorite sweets: Mike does not really like sweets (I know it sounds crazy but there are people in this world who can walk away from sweets, I am not one of them... but Mike is.) If you forced him to choose it would be Reese Sticks or apple pie. Mike makes the best apple pies I have ever tasted.
Favorite drinks: Pina Colada and Cherry Limeade.

Amber (Me)
Favorite foods: Stroganoff, nectarines, homemade mashed potatoes and gravy.
Favorite sweets: It is a toss up between a Snicker's bar and a icecream cone. I love when the bottom of the cone become soggy with icecream, it is my favorite part.
Favorite drinks: Voss water and fruit juice. Although I like all cold, crisp water; Voss is my favorite. Some of you may be wondering how one water could be better than others but if you have ever tried Voss you can agree there is something different about it.

Favorite foods: Peanut butter, yogurt, and juicy fruits.
Favorite sweets: We have tried to keep Van away from sweets as much as possible but there are times when we cannot resists his cherub smile and begging eyes. Icecream seems to be his biggest weakness.
Favorite drinks: Milk. Van will agitate with excitement anytime he sees milk.

The Unnamed One
No, he has not been born yet. But these are the foods I crave this pregnancy :)
Favorites: Fruit juice, Cocoa Puffs cereal, and salt & vinegar chips.

Favorite foods are wonderful. They may change over the course of our lives but that just means we have experienced more tastes. The thought should make our mouths water. The smell should bring back happy memories. And the taste should make us smile and sigh with pleasure. I believe the right foods can create a sense of security, give tradition to holidays, and define a culture. Here is a fun test: See how well you know your spouse, family, or friends by guessing their favorite foods. You will be surprised at what you learn (most people have a story behind their favorites, it is a great way to get them talking). I only missed one of Mike's favorites... Yeah, me!
