Popcorn!
Scallops!

It depends. Regionally, booze is more often used to mean the hard stuff here. And no, I have never distilled. But I brew my own wine and beer. Our most recent was a chocolate hazelnut porter and it came out soooo good. Cutesy mixes like that aren't always my first go-to, but it seemed like it would be a good flavor for holiday gifts and since that is the intention I'm extra glad it came out so well!

Oooh.... add scallops to my list. I think I could survive on beef and seafood for every meal for the rest of my life.

spaghetti/pasta and soup
I don't tend to go out to really expensive places, but occasionally I love prime rib, and seafood like very fresh fish or crab and lobster.
I've made my own kahlua, and it's yummy if I do say so myself. :p

it's a combination of sugar, brandy, coffees, and vanilla beans. the recipe is in my journal under a kahlua tag - the hardest part is waiting for it to sit and become extra delicious. :p

Beans and rice.
Fancy cheese.
Yes. I've made hard cider and beer, and I have 11 gallons of plum wine brewing right now.

Spaghetti! Or tacos. Or hot dogs from Dirty Frank's, if we're talking about going out somewhere.
A nice standing rib roast with a side of roasted garlic mashed potatoes and some kind of green veggie. Christmas day lunch in my family.
I have not.

Mmm.... you just reminded me of how much I love my in-laws Christmas meals. My FIL usually does a standing rib roast with Yorkshire pudding and roasted potatoes for Christmas dinner and the night before friends of the family have a party and do a beef fondu with hollandaise (with some sides I don't like so I just eat a ton of fondu beef... yum).

Inexpensive? I can get two orders of steamed shrimp dumplings and an order of egg rolls to go from the dim sum place in town for less that I would spend on fast food, so I often do that when I'm in a rush. Mmm... I think I'll get that tomorrow. Cheap? I dunno... Ramen?

Snow crab, filet mignon, prime rib, mussels. Drench in garlic and butter and eat. Nom.


Nope. Not much into drinking, certainly not enough to distill/brew my own.

I was already hungry. This post made me even hungrier, if you can't tell from my comments. :P

Yes, we make wine, beer, cider, and anything else that can be fermented.
