I've been tagged!


So I feel quite silly (that would be a picture of me looking silly). I thought I got a message a while back saying I had been tagged, but later when I went back through my email and a bunch of the comments on my posts, I couldn't find the note anywhere, so I thought I must have imagined it...on Monday I was reading through Jenny's archives over at The Red Bulletin Board and saw in one of her posts that she tagged me! Sorry it took me so long, Jenny!

Here are the rules:
* Mention the rules on your blog.
* Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself.
* Tag three others
* Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they are tagged.

Ok, here goes:

1) Chaotic movies have always freaked me out. Could NOT handle Alice In Wonderland as a child...to me it didn't move in a logical linear storyline. The pink elephant scene in Dumbo? Pretty much gave me nightmares.

2) I just found the recipe for some candy strawberries I had at a church potluck when I was about 4. I've been dreaming of those delicious strawberries (made of ground up nuts among other things) and trying to find the recipe for years. I was given a huge stack of old magazines a couple weeks ago and guess what I found in the December 1977 issue of Southern Living...so excited to make these things, I can hardly stand it.

3) I have eaten very few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in my life. It was just never my thing.

4) I do the majority of the cooking in our house, and I very rarely make the same meal twice. It bores me. I have a couple standbys (mom and dad's spaghetti, etc) that I love, but other than that I prefer to try new and different stuff.

5) I've been doing the majority of the cooking for 3 1/2 years and have yet to make a macaroni and cheese casserole...I was born and raised in South Carolina and LOVE mac-n-cheese. Is there something wrong with me?? Part of the reason: my husband and I get home from work too late most nights to make dishes that take a long time to cook. Someday though I will make up for lost time!

6) I love pizza. I love it so much. I told my husband earlier this week that I wished I could eat pizza for every meal. Sigh...pizza, my love. Incidently if you haven't tried Pizza Hut's The Natural pizza, GO TRY IT!! Its supposed to be made from slightly less processed ingredients, and I can personally vouch for the Rustica version...YUM. Add some peppers, onions, black olives and mushrooms in there, and its practically good for you, right?? :)

Since it has been over 2 months since I was tagged (spaz that I am) I am going to let sleeping dogs lie...or dead tag cycles be...or something.

Thanks for my first tag, Jenny!

Let's not forget the Flying Monkey's in the Wizard of Oz. They still scare me. :)

I'm just amazed that you don't make the same recipe twice!! That takes alot of work to not repeat. I repeat alot!!! My family knows to expect spagetti, burritos, enchiladas, soups, and anything to do with chicken.
