Four questions that will make you contemplate a friendship

Having asked the below four questions to a friend of mine, i'm now left pondering our friendship as we matched on 0 of these questions.

Do you pour the milk or cereal into the bowl first?

Do you store your tomato sauce in the cupboard or fridge?

Do you all a Chicken Parmigiana a 'Parma' or 'Parmi'?

Does Pineapple belong on Pizza?

Is it possible that one of you is not a real Aussie? 

As a Parma eating, Pineapple on Pizza loving cereal eater who pours his milk on top, i'm convinced that my tomato sauce in the cupboard habbits are true blue Aussie! After all, who wants cold sauce on a hot pie!?

Sounds like a good friendship to me Drew, does it really matter if your friendship answers are different.

It is like the question of the toilet roll!   Which way should the paper fall?  On the wall side or on the other side?  Doesn't really matter to me.

Long as you respect eachothers opinions, agree to disagree if you don't.

Drew thats  great to see. Maybe your friend spent too much time up north where every pub serves a Parmi. Pineapple is not only on pizzas, its on everything and anything which has been opened, (yes, including tomatoe sauce) is in the fridge. Who in their right mind would put the milk into a bowl before the cereal? 

my tomato sauce bottle says "refrigerate after opening"...so I do as I am told ;)

It's like asking if you pour the milk in to the cup before the tea or afterwards, I always pour milk after. Cereal in the bowl first and tomato sauce is always in the fridge, so the ants can't get at it. Always Chicken Parmigiana, can't remember the last time I had one and pineapple on pizza is okay.,

 

Cereal first of course!

I rarely use tomato sauce..so have to keep in fridge.

“Parmigiana” of course..I’m a Pom!

Pizza without pineapple? No way!

Sophie by "Pom" I take it you mean you don't shorten words? 

I agree with all of your answers except for parmigiana. I say parma, only because I believe the dish originated in Parma, Italy.

:) yes Bijou. I meant to say that but edit ran out!

Four questions that will make you contemplate a friendship … you gotta be kidding … all in fun I know, but developing friendships may hinge on a little more IMO, but in the spirit of nonsense:

• Milk or cereal first > Cereal
• Tomato sauce, cupboard or fridge > Cupboard until ant invasions
• 'Parma' or 'Parmi' > Ugh, heart attack stuff
• Pineapple on Pizza > Depends on the combo

Now, down to the serious upcoming Festive Season Stuff:

• Xmas Lunch … hot or cold?
• Xmas Pud … brandy custard, cream, ice-cream or all?
• To gift or not to gift … Kris Kringle, gift cards etc.
• When should one put up the Christmas decorations???

So many dilemmas LOL.

• Milk or cereal first > Don't eat cereal . Most boring breakfast
• Tomato sauce, cupboard or fridge > Fridge - neater and hygenic
• 'Parma' or 'Parmi' > Parmigiana
• Pineapple on Pizza > I usually make 2 pizza's . One with pineapple and bacon. The other with lots of meat 

Now, down to the serious upcoming Festive Season Stuff:

• Xmas Lunch … hot or cold? Hot of course
• Xmas Pud … brandy custard, cream, ice-cream or all? - yuck. no xmas pud for me
• To gift or not to gift … Kris Kringle, gift cards etc. - no gifts . waste of time 
• When should one put up the Christmas decorations??? anytime i feel like it . usually forst week december

When should one put up the Christmas decorations??? anytime i feel like it . usually forst week december

LOL ... sounds good to me ...is 'forst week' a combo of first and fortitude?

Xmas decos? Not up yet. Might put the tree up in a week or two. Then again, might not! Pudding? No one in my family ever eats it. Xmas dinner is usually hot. 

Hate pineapple on pizza. Tomato sauce lives in the cupboard forgotten - very rarely use it. Don’t know what chicken parmigiana is - have maybe eaten it without knowing? Cereal first, milk last.

Hate pineapple on pizza, but loved the smile on my sons face when I surprised him with one.  It's a trade off.  The beauty of a thickly crumbed Pub Parma is that no one knows exactly what they are eating.

 

 

I don't like my frosties soggy, still use the bowl Gramma gave me for my 4th b'day

pineapple belongs in a fruit salad, can't stand tomato sauce and it's unaustralian not to say chicken parma!

Our puppies have bowls like that Micha LOL

Mate, pineapple belongs on pizza, as well as tomato sauce and chicken parma.

YOU CAN NOT BE SERIOUS Reagan, pineapple on pizza?

Then you insult my Gramma’s gift to me, this friendship might be hanging by a thread? Come to think of it hmmm, I wonder if the bowl was regifted from Nosher our family dog at the time!

Guys, 

Unesco declared Naples' trademark technique of pizza making part of the world's "intangible heritage". It didn’t get that honour by bastardising it with pineapple and other toppings. A real pizza, which was originally invented in Naples is made with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and olive oil. No other toppings allowed.

Image result for neapolitan pizzawhenever I think of pizza, I remember my Nonna, she used to make dozens of pizzas for the Italian resistance during  WW11. She even gave to hungry British soldiers who gratefully built a statue to honour her. 

Ray, I need meat on my pizza. I remember seeing an old pic of a lady serving pizza to British soldiers in the trenches during the war, didn't know that was your nonna!

My friend, what can I say, everyone gets a grandma but not everyone has a nonna.

My nonna was always there to support me, cook my favourite dishes and fight my battles for me. 

Great lady my nonna 

Aaah, how I love the Italians and their pizza and amore.

My bubbe (granny in yiddish) used to love this song

I've never even thought of pouring the milk before the cereal, so cereal first for me.

Tomato sauce in the cupboard.

Chicken Parma.

And love pineapple on Pizza.

I hate to think that my good friendships would hinge & be jeopardized by the answers to such foolish questions.

you must have very superficial friends 

L O L

Noooo!!!!   Don't care so much about the others, but pineapple on a pizza ....please nooo!!!

Friendships and Pizza!  LOL

Back on my last visit to Rome there were cafes there advertising cheeseless pizzas!  Or one could order them with one half made with cheese.

As a person that has an allergy to dairy I nearly ordered one.

Do you pour the milk or cereal into the bowl first?   If and when I have it cereal 1st and very little milk, I hate soggy cereal

Do you store your tomato sauce in the cupboard or fridge?     Cupboard as I never use at all only there for others, it is on the self in the shops so if unopened I store the same.

Do you all a Chicken Parmigiana a 'Parma' or 'Parmi'?      Never tried it myself as I hate that tomato stuff ,my Son calls it Chicken in pyjamas 

Does Pineapple belong on Pizza?     YES

Love Kris Kringle provided you know who it is for.

Normal routine for some is the amount of money each person spends.
