Come take the poll!

I know it seems like a weird poll, but I am just curious about your "eating foods prepared with wine" tendencies. I know people are kind of all over the board with this one which is why I put a poll instead of asking for comments, so you can be all anonymous and stuff.

Personally, I guess I just don't know. When we went to the melting pot, after much reassurance that the alcohol all "cooks off" we placed our order. . . I think every single option had wine in it. But then I wanted to make a recipe that called for beer battered fish and I was all in angst. : ) Anyway, just curious about all of your thoughts on the topic.

Considering I just blogged about this I think you know my answer!

Hey now, we totally picked non-alcoholic options when we went to the Melting Pot. It was a sin-free, non-baby-harming night :)

The alcohol does cook off. I cook with wine if it calls for it. My mom used to serve us beer sausage when we were little. We never once got drunk. :)

Haha, when I was going to make those fish tacos, someone recommended that I put on sunglasses and a baseball hat and go into the gas station convenience store to buy just one can of beer. Another person suggested apple cider as a substitute for beer. Of course, I just ended up buying beer battered frozen fish.

I don't have any problems with eating food that was cooked with alcohol, but I choose not to keep any alcohol in the house. That's just me. I don't think there's anything wrong with it as long as you're not sneaking swigs in the pantry now and then. :0)
