your favourite food...too hard a question?

whats your favourite food? do you have a reply you use if someone asks you, or do you think its too hard to answer? my favourite food since i was practactly a baby is musubi rice triangles with umeboshi paste inside and second fav is marinated artichokes.
this is not to say i don't really love a few things and have favourite dishes that i feel like more often than others but if someone asks i say these, so my question is what do you say when someone asks you this seemingly simple question and is it answerable in your opinion?

  1. My go to answer is lamb chops. But faced with being on an island for 20 years, would I want lamb chops every day? And honestly, would I want to be alone with that many sheep. It's a tough call because I could eat breakfast for every meal of the day, and I love corned beef hash...and I don't even need homemade. I'll take the canned stuff. I have a harder time giving up potato chips when dieting, so maybe that is my favorite food, plsu there are som many varieties, I'd never get tired of eating them. Of course a nice piece of tuna (sashimi) is always a winner, but would I want that all the time. I never get tired of a good bleu or goat cheese, so maybe that's my favorite.

    You know what, gun to my head, on an island, last meal on death row. Give me a nice plate of lamb chops, salt, pepper, rosemary, cooked medium rare. Yeah it's my favorite...pretty simple!

        I'm with Ruth. Too hard. I don't have an answer.

      2. Easy......Canadian Rye Whisky
        One of the three major food groups :-)

        Kidding aside, yes it's too hard to answer because I'm sure we all have many things we like way too much.

          I prefer single malt, neat.

          As far as a favorite food goes... I couldn't pick one.

          1. re: billieboy

            a good blended bourbon thank you :)

            And I can honestly say stone crab is my favorite all time food.

          2. Very easy to answer: bo lo mien bao. Translated from the Chinese as "pineapple buns," these are sweet rolls not at all pineapple-flavored but named for the crackly crust on top and filled with pastry cream. These have been my favorite food since I was two years old, my mother tells me. I could eat them every day for every meal and not get enough.

              just like me with my msubi triangles i could never get enough when i was little and now, thanks for the replies everyone :-)

              1. re: browniebaker

                sounds yummy, but it's hard to find a recipe for it

              2. Chocolate milk. That counts right? And if I'm on a desert island is it cheating to heat it up once in awhile to turn it into hot chocolate?
