Kitchen Confidential

Driftwood has tagged me to write 8 random things.
This is very difficult because I am not a random person.

So I thought I would open my heart to y'all
and get personal.

1. I am obsessive about spices.
They must be FRESH.

2. The smell of burnt toast
sends me into a FRENZY of opening windows.

3. I HATE pasta.
Unless it is one of those smart restaurants
which serve a single ravioli on a huge plate.

4. I cannot SWALLOW broad beans.

5. I am a good cook
but I am NOT INTERESTED
in cooking for myself.

6. I live in constant FEAR
of running out of milk.

7. I am too LAZY to peel oranges.

8. The smell of honey makes me feel SICK.

9. Lunch is a ham sandwich.
EVERY day.

This is so shocking that I was not going to reveal it
but then I read that Tracey does too.

Now I feel I have joined the Coolest Club in town.

I always thought of MrsM as my very own spice girl

Thomas says: What better tribute can you have than that from Mr M!

Number 6 I can relate to!

Can my son Joe join your club with Tracey. Since he was 2 and he is now 8 he has eaten a ham sandwich almost every single day.

You and I would not be good housemates! I like toast slightly burnt. And, ever since I learned to peel them, I love broad beans!

That is so funny. I was reading and thinking, "that sounds alright, nothing random about that!"

I like my toast to be nothing more than warm bread - no colour, but warm enough to melt the butter.

love the way its all about food!
can't imagine living without pasta, its so quick.
ham sandwiches - mmm I have a couple of people in my house obsessed with them, preferably with cheese in too.

I think you'd better stay away from our spice cabinet.

Tracy said...

HATE pasta...I don't think I've ever heard that before! We have pasta once a week...can't imagine no pasta. The fresh spice I can definitely relate to--makes all the difference, doesn't it? Which spice would we be calling you then...given Mr.M's reply? ;o) Such fun reading your list. Happy Day ((HUGS))

After Tracy's comment never mind the language of flowers, what about the language of spices?

carrie said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes to cook, but not for herself.

Even if it's a salad, it tastes so much better when someone else has prepared it!

carrie said...

Oh, that comment from MrM! So, which Spice Girl would you be???

Inquiring minds want to know!

Very good!
I've been tagged too, but am needing to give it a lot of thought! It's more difficult than you might initially think isn't it?
