  1. These are so fun. I love cucumbers and tomatoes! I also don't care for Lima beans and I am not a fan of sweet potato pie myself.

  2. 1. granny smith (with salt or dipped in chocolate)...if I have to eat it plain, Red Delicious.

    2. Isn't a cucumber just a cucumber?

    3. Delicious (and EXTRA delicious when seasoned with Krazy Jane's Mixed Up Salt)

    4. Brussel sprouts - just ick!

    5. grilled

    6. Love.

    7. Sweet potato.

    8. Cherry

    9. Yep. If I put it on my plate, I had to eat it. All of it.

    10. I just drink the premade ones.

    This one was fun :).

  3. You're the first person I've come across who participated today who knows the difference in the cucumbers. None of us have any clue, lol. I, too, love sweet potato pie. Have you ever had sweet potato french fries? They are equally delicious. Hope you're having a good day!
