Ice Breaker – One Meal

Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

Question:  If you had to select one meal to eat over and over again for the rest of you life, what would it be?

My Answer:  This week we’ve eaten a lot of rice and beans.  It’s one of the major meals for those who live in the villages of Guatemala.  It’s not my favorite, but I am grateful for the opportunity to eat.  For many in this country, they are thrilled to get a spoonful of rice and a spoonful of beans once (maybe twice) a day.  And they eat this day after day after day.

If I had to select one meal to eat repeatedly, I would initially say pizza.  Pizza has always been one of my favorite meals.  My tastes have refined somewhat, so I might change this up a little now.  A perfect meal for me would include a fresh salad, a salmon steak, grilled rosemary red potatoes, asparagus, and creme brulee.  I could repeat this over and over and over again.
