Ad first…this is priceless:

And now… a meme I found and modified. Consider yourself invited to play!

A Marvelous Foodie Meme!

1. What is your first food memory? When I was about 3 my mom and I colored everything!  I mean everything!  And I remember specifially shelling hard boiled eggs and then coloring them! And no it was NOT Easter…just a typical day of creative play!
2. What was your favorite dish/food as a child? Bologna Sandwiches! I discovered them when I was 5 and in kindergarten! My mom and dad were VERY particular about what I ate (even though I consumed mass quantities of food coloring!) and I had never eaten cold cuts of any kind.  After kindergarten one day, I went to play at a friends house and came home telling my mom about the most delicious meat I had ever tasted.  It was just wonderful and this other mom put it on a sandwich and I could have eaten another but I didnt want to ask for one, would she PLEASE call and see what kind of amazing meat this was so we could buy it!  My mom was mortified…BOLOGNA!!! All I remember her saying is THAT’S NOT MEAT!!! But she bought it anyway~ I still have a bologna sandwich about once every two years.  You have to have the kind that is sliced with the red plastic still on it and you have to peel off the ring of red wrapping before eating it!

3. Name one of your favorite foods: Steamed Asparagus 

4. What was something you were excited to make for the first time? My first meal as a wife…it was NOT good.  I came into this marriage with little cooking skill.  First comment from my brand new hubby: “How much milk did you put in these mashed potatoes?” To which I responded “Milk???” They were a little pasty.

5. What is your favorite food memory? When I was 6 I had measles (yeah I am THAT old) and I had a terrible high fever and craved strawberries. It was December and all that was available was the kind in a box in the frozen food case.  I remember when my dad brought them home, they were the most delicious things I had ever eaten!

6. Your best birthday party : All out theme with perfect kid food ala Martha? or Quiet family home party with scrumptious cupcakes? Something in-between? When I was turning 6 my mom threw a party for my whole classroom…all thirty kids at my house!  It was amazing.

7. Name one thing you absolutely love to make and eat when you are feeling like a kid again: Cutout cookies…I have so many memories of every conceivable cutout cookie…for any and all occasions!

8. Name something you ate as a kid that you now look back on and wonder “what were my childhood taste buds thinking??” : Silly Straws…the candy that is powder in a straw…yikes they are awful!
