Andy and I have been married for eight years as of today. That's a little bit of time! That also means that we've been together for just over nine years of our lives. And nothing says I love you on this special day like a full-blown cold. Yeah...well, it had to be something I suppose.
Since I haven't been feeling well the last few days I don't really have much to share food-wise, so I thought I'd tackle a meme that Mimi from French Kitchen In America tagged me for. It's an "about me" meme where I take each letter of my name and share something about myself that corresponds with that letter. I have to confess, I have a few tricky letters, but we'll see what I can come up with.
E- I think E would best be described as "eclectic". I like a little bit of everything- I don't have any hard-core hobbies(well, except cooking), but lots of them that I like to do some of. I don't have a specific favorite cuisine, I love them all in bits and pieces.
R- Resourceful is a good one here. I learned very well from my mother how to make a feast out of nothing. I know how to take a dollar and pinch it in many ways to make it ten. It doesn't mean I always do it, but I can if needed to.
I- I is for Idyllic. I tend to get ideas in my mind of how I want things to be- and Idyllic would be the best way to describe those ideas- not always attainable, but something to shoot for.
K- Well, the K hasn't always been here so that's something. I was born with a C in my name, and just before I went into sixth grade my mom asked if I wanted to change the spelling of my name- that she'd thought of the k but went with the c. I jumped at that, and when I got married the K became legal spelling.
A-Hmm...well, I suppose A could be for alto. When I sang in high school I liked singing alto, but my senior year my choir director needed a high soprano who could read music so I was moved. I still always liked alto the best, and my high C could never compare to my sister Liz's.
Okay, those letters were harder to fill than I thought they would be. I really had to dig for a few of them. If you read this and you have a blog- consider yourself tagged. :-) Let me know if you do it.
Tomorrow I'll have a few of Abigail's lunches to share, so come back for some lunchy inspiration.
