I’d given myself a week off this week, but when I saw Cee’s questions from Share Your World, I couldn’t resist. I’m sure something else will entice me out of my hibernation (some would call it a vacation), but I’ll try to limit my computer time!
Do you prefer ketchup or mustard?
Aside from the sauces which go into a recipe, I’m a strong believer that anything extra is just killing the flavour. My children smother their food in tomato (ketchup) or barbecue sauce and I often wonder why I bother cooking the meal – they can’t actually taste anything except a tangy zing from the sauce on their taste buds. But that’s just me, and I suppose one could argue that moderation is the key!
If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction?
Definitely a comedy. Sometimes I feel like I live in a National Lampoon’s adventure – minus Chevy Chase.
If you could be given any gift what would it be?
I don’t know if it makes me incredibly lucky or incredibly sad for looking a gift horse in the mouth, but I can’t think of an answer to this question.
For potlucks or parties do you cook it yourself, buy from a grocery store, or pay for catering?
Most of the time I cook it myself. I like to cook for people, but as with anything else I’m not very organised and so I prefer to rule the domain! People usually avoid me when I’m in the kitchen and then marvel at the meal I’ve provided – while ignoring the bomb site in the next room. I’m not completely unreasonable though, I do allow people to help me tidy up!
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful for my family, even when I feel like nailing their head to the carpet (Chevy Chase reference in case you were wondering). They’ve been entertaining my daughters because I’ve had to work some of the half-term. We’re on holiday together though this week, including my brother and his brood, so I’ll probably need a rest when I get back!
