Last week, I confessed that while I like to keep a nice and neat organized environment most of the time, on the INSIDE it tends to resemble the bedroom of a teenager…what ARE those dirty socks doing in that pizza box?!
Moldy pepperoni aside, it’s been over a YEAR since I was first nominated for the Liebster award and over six MONTHS since I last posted my answers to some very important questions. I mean, people must know…what WOULD my last meal be?! And now, for some other life or death blogger questions… 😉
From Miss Polkadot at Let’s Get Living:
1. What’s your motto in life?
Try anything at least ONCE! Whether it be a new food or a spontaneous activity that scares you a little, life is all about adventure and really, what’s the point in being here if we don’t embrace as many experiences as possible?
2. What is one of your quirky habits?
Just one? 😉 Well, I have this thing with odd numbers…when making a list, I can have 3, 5, or 7 things, but if not any of those three, then it has to be 10….my alarm has to be set in divisions of 5…and for some reason any number ending in 7 makes my eye twitch!
3. What nicknames do you have?
I always wished I did, but I never really had a nickname growing up, besides the super creative use of pairing rhyming words with my name…oh if I had a nickel for every “Heather Feather” that was thrown my way!
4. What is your favorite way to treat yourself?
I am well versed in retail therapy, massages are now my favorite way to drool on myself (sorry foodies), and I’ve been known to dive head-first into a trough of fro-yo after a hard week, but honestly, nothing makes me feel better than a nice long walk at the park…especially when following behind the lens of my camera!
5. What would you like to be remembered for by others?
I hope each day that I exude genuineness in everything I do…that I come across as a woman who made the most of her days, learned to embrace her faults, loved with an open heart, and found the joy in every day.
Wow…way to get deep, MP! I’m making myself tear up over here!
From Kammie at Sensual Appeal:
1. What was your favorite class in high school?
I grew up in a small town so liberal arts classes were kinda slim for picking, but luckily after signing up for art all four years, I finally got it in my schedule my senior year AND I got to take it with my best friend, Sherri! We had a blast and I still have some of my art projects…I’ll have to share them with you guys some day!
2. What’s the number one place you’d like to visit?
EUROPE!! Just please don’t make me narrow it down to a specific country…I just want to be transplanted there for (at least) a year and eat my way back home! Ha!
3. What kind of climate do you wish you could live in?
Omg, best question ever! I would LOVE to live somewhere where it’s around 70 degrees (21 for all you metric people out there) all year long, mostly sunny, and NO SNOW! The man-friend is convinced I would get bored living in a place that lacked changing seasons, but I beg to differ!
4. When did you start your journey in the kitchen?
When I moved out and started college, my roommates thought I was a friggin’ chef…all because I knew how to throw 5 cans of stuff and a packet of seasoning together with some ground meat and call it chili, but honestly, that’s about the ONLY thing I knew how to make…other than spaghetti, which, less face it, is basically the same thing only minus the beans and add the noodles! 😉 It actually wasn’t until I got married (yes, I was once married for all who didn’t know) that I got bitten by the domesticated bug and started learning how to cook, but I would ALWAYS follow a recipe…like to a tee…like if I didn’t have parsley for garnish, I would go out to the store just for it! It’s wasn’t until I discovered food blogs that I actually got in there and realized I had a hidden talent all along! 😀
5. If you had one dish to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
As long as I got the choice of unlimited toppings, PIZZA!!!
I totally forgot to tell you guys about the pizza place the man-friend and I stopped at on our way back from Cleveland last month. While indulging in a little Travel Channel one weekend, we caught an episode of Restaurant Impossible (love!) and watched Robert Irvin totally turn this ho-hum pizza joint into a thing of beauty. We actually made a point to map out Aponte’s Pizzeria as a stop and, while we both agree that the owner probably went back to his “special” sauce (the one that Robert told him to change), the crust and toppings were amazing!
The man-friend went with his favorite of pepperoni and black olive while I ordered the sun-dried tomato and broccoli with fresh mozzarella!
Ok, so I still have two more nominations, but this post has gotten long enough! I’m off to do some blog reading of my own and I know my attention span is only so long so I’ll “see” you back tomorrow for some #strangebutgood deliciousness! 😀
What ONE dish could you eat for the rest of your life?
