I Wish There Could Be Warm Snow
There’s tons of snow and I got out for my first ski of the year (despite the -10 degree weather)! That has nothing to do with cooking. But it does make me exquisitely exhausted. For dinner I’m eating a venison meat pie that my Grandma made and I had in the freezer. I made some good cookies last night, but they just look like normal cookies and like I said, I’m exhausted so I’m not posting a picture, (I may also have already eaten a disproportionately large amount of the cookies). The cookies were Cherry-Chocolate-Pecan and are courtesy of Martha, go make them. Or you can go make twice baked sweet potatoes. Those were courtesy of me and there is no recipe but they’re filled with great things like bacon, sour cream and green onions, go make them. If you haven’t left yet to make either of those then you can continue reading this “3 Things” meme that Artizen Flair of Artizenkitschen tagged me for. You’re only excused from reading if you’re in the kitchen.
Three things that scare me: boiling sugar, people who don’t like food, losing my eyebrows to an exploding kitchen
People who make me laugh: Alton Brown, Charlie Brown, James Brown
Three things I love: food, presents, food related presents.
Three things I hate: when I mess up a recipe and the Kitchen Fairy doesn’t fix it, rain, jerks.
Three things I don't understand: why someone won’t pay me to just be me, why at some point in ancient history little things were deemed cute and lovable and why that’s never changed.
Three things on my desk: I don’t have a desk, I’m sitting in a lazyboy with my laptop but I’ve got a cat, a clipboard and some markers up here with me
Three things I want to do before I die: eat good food in Vietnam, share sushi with a dolphin, find the Holy Grail.
Three things I can do: turn left, eat mass quantities of cookie dough, tie cherry stems with my tongue (life of the party, right here folks).
Three things you should listen to: anything I say, anything the devil on your shoulder says, anything I say.
Three things you should never listen to: Nigella’s doctored recipes, anything I say, Styrofoam rubbing together.
Three things I'd like to learn: how to get someone to be my life sponser, how not to ruin perfectly good food, how to make marzipan Mario, (I might be closer to crossing that one off my list than you can even imagine…).
Three favourite foods: I like food.
Three beverages I drink regularly: wine, rum, gingerbeer… er, I mean water, water, gingerbeer.
Three TV shows I watched as a kid: Gummi Bears (bouncing here and there and everywhere), Smurfs, Alvin and the Chipmunks… now I will eat all of them!
Three blogger friends that I am going to tag: I won’t force anyone to participate, but should you feel the need to divulge your most intimate secrets as well, by all means, be my guest.
