finally, a meme

Sarah Louise has come to my rescue.
She's very sweet and we should all thank her for injecting a little meme-life here.


In the kitchen with...Blackbird -

Variety is the spice of life.
In my cupboard, I have this many spices: um, 50?
Rack or no rack? no rack, cabinet, with three big shelves.
Alphabetize? I have attempted it several times, but no one (read K) adheres to it.
Which spice do you use most often? Basil?
Which recipe? Lately it would be the no-knead bread, which I still refer to - every week.

It's like the pot calling the kettle black.

Coffee or tea? Both.
Do you make coffee at home? K makes the pot in the morning, decaf.
If you make tea, loose or in bags? Loose.
How many kinds of tea do you have? I have some Earl Grey and some chai - both decaf.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
I use my stovetop: Yeah. I use my stovetop. But usually only the front three burners.
I use my oven: about twice a week.

Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?
Soy or cow? Cow. Whole. Organic.
Skim or whole? oh - look, I was over-anxious.
How many gallons a week? It's not just me here you know, they use about 3/4 of a gallon.

There's nothing like rejection to make you do an inventory of yourself. (James Lee Burke)

Three items in my freezer (right now):
  1. The insert for the ice cream maker.
  2. Jack Daniels.
  3. Peas.

Three things in my fridge (right now):
  1. A tube of tomato paste.
  2. Four bottles of white.
  3. Arugula.

Item I am most chagrined about: A dried sausage from Whole Foods that is just too old and dried and mouldy and I need to bring it back (it came that way) and I keep forgetting to bring it with me.

Item I bet no one else has: oh, come on...it's ME...I've got tons of stuff like that...odd cheeses, obscure hot sauces, how's about that 2 1/4 roll film for the Hasselblad?
