Game of Tag

I don't have anything exciting to blog about - we're still eating from the freezer. Tonight was a Kashi pizza topped with leftover roast beef. I did make Christmas cookies and treats Sunday, but I froze most of them and will finish that project this weekend.

However, Mandy, an awesome food blogger from the great state of Texas, tagged me in a little blog game. Mandy is getting ready to take the CMP (Certified Meeting Professional) Exam, so stop by and wish her luck!

Here are 7 random things about me (that you probably don't care about):
  1. I like to dip french fries (preferably McD's or Steak & Shake) in a chocolate Frosty (from Wendy's). I know . . . it is not only weird, but terrible for me as well. But once every three or four years can't be that bad, can it?
  2. I hate fish. Actually I hate all seafood. Even shrimp and lobster. Even if it is breaded and fried. Even if it is dipped in a fr. . . just kidding, I've never tried to dip seafood in a Frosty. That would just be wrong.
  3. I also hated tomatoes until a year or two ago. The tomato/mozzarella dish on the Ruby Tuesday salad bar converted me. Now I am obsessed with tomatoes. Black Krim tomatoes in particular.
  4. I would like to learn how to can so I am able to make my own tomato sauce and salsa. I would also like to learn to make cheese.
  5. Over the past year, I have tried a lot of new foods - organ meat sausages, pate, kombucha, raw milk, miso, ghee, and sprouted grain bread, to name a few. Most of them I really like, others I may develop a taste for over time.
  6. I cannot cut onions - they make my eyes miserable. I use the frozen, diced kind 95% of the time.
  7. Someday I would like to open a bakery. I hate it when restaurants use cheap, processed muffins/pastries/cookies/etc. Coffee shops are especially bad about this. Life is too short to eat junk that doesn't even taste good. Right?

Thanks for tagging me! I can't wait to see you over Christmas.

I made your sugar shortbread cookies (I can't remember exactly what they are called) and the they are awesome! The icing is a little messy (in terms of decoration). I'm going to try to post pictures of them this week.

glad you are converted and love tomatoes now...i love them! :) oh and if you refrigerate onions before slicing them, you're less likely to tear up.

thanks for tagging me :) i will get to it in the future...not sure when, but eventually i will!

Dana and Lane - I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who dips fries in frosties!
Lesley - I can't wait to see you either! Remember when we lived in Columbia and I made lemon knot cookies for Christmas . . . and they turned out to be really hard and dry? Yeah, the shortbread sugar cookies are a lot better!
