I am SO excited to join in on The Guys Behind the Blog Series with Betsy from Heavens to Betsy and Laura Jean from According to Laura Jean! I've had my eye on this series for months and finally got around to getting Asa involved! Now, I've talked about Asa, but I don't think I've ever really introduced you to him. Asa and I met our freshman year of college and became friends, sophomore year we became more than friends, and the rest is history! He's a worship pastor in Maryland, he plays quite a few instruments, he's a little bit of a nerd (okay, maybe a lot, but I love him for it) and he's my absolute favorite guy ever. I guess that's why I'm marrying him next June. We've been engaged since March and have 10 months left until we say I do! I'm super excited to have him in on this month's edition of Guys Behind the Blog talking all about food! So without further ado, here's Asa!
1// What is your all time favorite food?
My absolute favorite food... ever, is my Mom’s homemade chicken. Seasoned with a random mixture of spices and sauce including hot jerk and seasoned salt that changes a little each time. Bake it for 30-45 and it always turns out amazing!!! Eat it up with some seasoned rice and veggies.
2// Who is the cook between you and your significant other?
Between the two of us, I would say we both have specialties and things that we cook better than the other, but overall I would say she cooks more than I do. (just a little bit more)
3// What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
Coming from a family that grew up eating anything and everything, a lot of strange things have come down my throat. The two winners of the weirdest things I’ve eaten have to be between, ox tail in Italy, or the intestines of cow in my family’s peanut soup.
4// Are there any foods you absolutely detest?
Considering the previous question, there isn’t a lot I won’t eat. Except one thing, I am really not a fan of hard pretzels. They just are not appetizing to me. I dreaded the day airlines switched to them instead of peanuts.
5// What is your favorite local, little-known, or whole in the wall place to eat?
There is this place that my boss showed me near the church. (I work at a church and my boss is the Pastor. Ha) All we called it was the convenience store. Some of the best sandwiches and wings I have ever had. I ate there for two weeks straight after that and I occasionally go over there and fill my craving with their massive Super Reuben or a box of 12 wings and fries, all for a reasonable price and complete with a drink of my choosing in hand (usually Snapple). If you are ever in the Central Maryland Area, near Jessup and Savage, that is the place to go off of Howard Street.
I absolutely loved reading Asa's answers, and by the way, he's right, that convenience store is the bomb!
Can't wait for next month! Thanks for this awesome link-up Betsy & Laura Jean!
