I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Tag I'm It.......

My inner MM, the resemblance is uncanny!

Find your "inner MM"

I have been tagged to post 8 random facts. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts: Each participant posts eight random facts about themselves. Tagees should write a blogpost of eight random facts about themselves. At the end of the post, eight more bloggers are tagged. Go to their blog and leave a comment telling them they're tagged.

1. I was awarded “Daughter of the Flag” in grammar school. I led assemblies in the national anthem and had special privileges because of it for a term of one year... I did not realize what an important award it was until I was older; all I remember is my Mother crying because she was so proud of me. I guess to receive the award you have to have had the highest grade point average of all the 1st thru 5th grade students in the district. According to the papers my Mother gave me I had a 98% average.

2. I love to eat lemons with salt. I just cut them in wedges, sprinkle salt on them and eat the fruit away from the skin.

3. For the first fifteen years of my life I was insane about Julie Andrews and Barbra Streisand. I had to see every movie they were in, had every album they ever made and kept scrap books with articles about them.

4. One of my favorite things to do is go to the Casino; I love slot machines especially the poker slots.

5. When I was 9 yrs. old I got to shake President Johnson’s hand at the Whitehouse while on vacation in Washington with my Aunt.

6. For years I thought I had killed a zebra at our local zoo. I was 4 years old and feeding the zebra popcorn and the lady told me to keep my hand open but I must have closed it and the zebra bit me (not seriously, just a little nip that broke the skin a bit). Three weeks later our local newspaper said that the zebra had passed away, I thought that it died from biting me, the family had a good laugh on that one. Turns out the zebra was just very old.

7. My drink of choice…. “Bourbon”

8. If I allowed myself and my conscience does not get the best of me, I could easily consume an entire cheesecake….. Did I just say that out loud?

I will now tag only 8 of the many blogs I do so love and enjoy.



Chef John said...

Thanks for the tag. My mother-in-law thinks we must be related since we're both Italian, Russian and Polish! I'll try to post 8 things when I get an "off day" Cheers!

Julie said...

I would not be surprised if we were related, I can't tell you the people that I run into that I have some sort of connection with, It really is a small world.

Butta Buns said...

I just tried a bit of lemon with salt......arlejafkhkohgadpohgid. If you want the other half, I'll save it for you because I'm now off lemons for a while.

I'll have to think about my 8 but should have it up within a week.

Hi Butta Bunns, my father always ate cut up lemons with salt, so I started at a very young age, I'm sure it is an aquired taste or should I say pucker lol.
