Crazy Little Things about Food

Courtney tagged me for this the other day and I think it is a fine way to put something a little less wrenching here. Thank you Courtney.

The rules are, as follows,

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them)
4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

Here goes:

1. I absolutely hated asparagus until my husband suggested I put apple cider vinegar on them. Now they are one of my favorite vegetables.

2. The same thing with spinach. Only, this time, he suggested lemon juice and, OMG, Yum.

3. The thing I (used to) love to make most was Chicken and Dumplings from scratch. Rolled out dumplings laid on top. It was my husband's absolute favorite dish. I tried making it once, after, and I found I cannot.

4. We have eaten far too much take out pizza lately.

5. One time my husband made frozen fish sticks for himself and Nik and he messed it right the hell up. How does one do that? I'll tell you how. Mr "I don't have time for this kitchen stuff" figured that, if the box said 400 for 35 minutes, he could cook them at 500 for 15 and split the difference. I got home from work and was told the fish (yeah, the FROZEN fish) was "bad". I think that was the last time he turned on the stove for more than tea.

I know I am supposed to tag 5 but my mouth hurts and I believe I'll have a nap. It's a fun meme and if you wish to do it, then you are tagged!

Been visiting a lot lately . . . just honestly don't know what to say. You are continually in my thoughts. Thank you for being you.

Seriously ruined fish sticks? Wow that is amazing. While you are babysitting some time, we'll make something homemade together something a little less painful.

Thanks for playing along.

I can tell your mouth hurts: all of these 5 things are about FOOD!!

Oh Laura,

Yes it IS possible to ruin fishsticks. Somebody in my life (who shall remain nameless) earned the name "Fishboy" for doing exactly the same thing.

I will never again think of fishsticks as being edible.

Thanks for the smile! :)

Brussel Sprouts with lemon juice - delicious!

I can imagine the fish sticks. Black on the outside and frozen on the inside. I guess he could have said they were "Blackened".

Split the difference?! Too funny.

I hope your mouth feels better soon.

LOL on number 5!!

Did I not mention the fact that Lil does the pizza dance any time the doorbell rings now, even though it may NOT be pizza? Yeah, that was *my* clue I had better start cooking again...;oP

HUGS my friend!
