Yes or No

I hope you’re having a good day and in the mood for a little game of yes or no.

1. Have you ever eaten raw cookie dough?

Not the Raw Vegan Cookie Dough (below) kind which is egg-free

2. Do you think beans are the Musical Fruit?  Spicy Baked Black Beans with Mixed Vegetables may have had that effect in our house.

3. If a friend asked you if you thought her outfit made her look fat, would you tell her your honest thoughts?

4. Would you be able to explain the differences (without having a color chart next to you) between magenta, maroon, and crimson in a succinct way, either to a grown man or a preschooler, so that in a couple sentences they knew what was what?

Bonus points if the grown man even after the explanation has any idea what you just said.  If you ask him to pick out a maroon tie, he will likely come home with a periwinkle one.

5. Does the combination of chocolate + peanut butter make you happy?

What are your answers to 1 through 5 above?

Mine are:

1. yes (and I’m still here)

2. yes

3. yes (but this is hard and I’ve been known to dodge this question and admit to a little bit of white lying or sugar-coating)

4. no

5. yes!

And have you entered the Asian Foods Giveaway?

And as a favor, have you voted for me in the Delta/Biscoff Bakeoff?  Just takes a second and thank you!

  1. 1. Yes, but it would be the raw vegan stuff today. :-)
    2. Not so much anymore, think I’ve built a tolerance.
    3. Yes, that’s what friends are for.
    4. Yes thanks to many art and graphic design classes in high school and college.
    5. Sure.

  2. yes, yes, yes (although it’s awkward), no (I don’t think I even know the difference! lol) and YES! I looooove chocolate and peanut butter together. And throw some caramel in there and it’s even better.

  3. 1. I’m vegan now, but the raw egg thing never scared me. I made & ate so much cookie dough containing raw eggs & I’m still standing. (I just personally stopped for ethical reasons.)

    2. Yes, beans are a musical fruit. I have to stop making CCK’s chocolate cookie pie (made with chickpeas) because it means I need to avoid people all day… :)

    3. It depends on how close I am with that friend & how she’ll take it. I would never outwardly say, “yeah, you look fat” because I wouldn’t want to hear that from anyone. Instead, I’ll suggest another outfit that I know looks adorable on her.

    4. I would like to say “yes” but…I truly doubt it :P

    5. OMG YES!! Choc & PB are probably the best couple ever! I celebrate their union <3

  4. Fun game! My answers:
    1. Yes, in my pre-vegan days,
    2. No, I think broccoli is a musical fruit.
    3. No, unless it is my sister.
    4. Definitely not.
    5. YES!

  5. My answers are the same as yours, yes to all except number 4. And honestly someone needs to explain the differences to me before I could possibly explain them to anyone else!

  6. question #4 made me crack up! I worked at a tux shop for many years and boys have NO concept of color whatsoever. I remember one client insisting to me his girlfriend’s dress was lavender and I showed him a dozen swatches of lavender and he was sure it was the right color and then she brought the dress in and it was…pink. Not even purple.

  7. 1) I eat raw cookie dough every time I make cookies, and I have absolutely no concerns about the raw egg.
    2) Yes, beans are totally the musical fruit. But, brussels sprouts are worse!
    3) Nope, I would tell the friend that she looked good. It would be too hurtful to tell her she looked fat – I could never do it.
    4) I would not be able to describe the difference between those colours.
    5) I like chocolate and PB together, but not as much as most people.
