Four Foods

Val over at Fun, Crafts and Recipes doesn't have a theme for her food questions this week so it's a hodgepodge of different foods. Visit her blog if you want to copy and paste the questions and play Four Foods on Friday. She post the questions every Friday. Let's play!!

#1. Artichokes. Love em or leave em?
I've never had them but would love to try them sometime. I'm very curious about this strange vegetable.

#2. What’s your favorite kind of bean?
Pinto beans are the best. A bowl of beans with cornbread and fried potatoes is one of the most perfect meals. Mmmm.

#3. Share a recipe for any kind of cake.
It's not really a cake-cake, but the name implies that it is just that.

Banana Split Cake
2 c. graham cracker crumbs
2 sticks oleo
2 c. powdered sugar
3 bananas
1 jar marachino cherries, small jar; drained, halved
8 oz Cool Whip
1 small package pecans, chopped
chocolate syrup
2 eggs
1 can crushed pineapple in juice; drained

Melt 1 stick oleo and mix with crumbs in a 9X13 pan. Press in bottom of pan. Beat eggs, sugar and 1 stick oleo for 10 minutes and pour over crust. Put pineapple over egg mixture. Slice bananas on top of pineapple. Pour chocolate syrup on top and cover with cool whip then chopped pecans and cherries. Chill

#4. What’s your favorite dairy product?
Ice cream is quite lovely. Did that sound british? Anyway, I love many flavors of ice cream but since I recently found out that it's high in cholesterol... it's on my "once in a blue moon" list.

Those new slow-churned ice creams are really good, but lower in fat, cholesterol and other bad stuff!

My college roommate's mother used to make that cake. It was sooo good!
