This weeks looks like another busy week! Lots of meetings, plans and work! But, before I forget, I was tagged!
The Rules:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
So here we go…..
1. I’m slightly obsessed with Food Network. I love to watch people cook!
2. I haven’t ridden a bike since the 6th grade.
3. I’m afraid of the dark. When my husband away on business I sleep with all the lights in the house ON.
4. I wear socks about 4 times a year. I hate hot feet.
5. Citrus is one of my favorite smells.
6. I want to learn how to container garden. I hope to grow tomatoes and cucumbers this summer.

I tag…anyone who wants to participate! (ok…that’s cheesey. How about Leftover Queen, Omaha Mama, Julia, Kathy, Kath, Mommy’s Kitchen and Peanut Butter Boy).

  1. Mmmm, the chicken satay looks awesome, mostly because of the peanut butter, but sugar snap peas and cabbage are excellent with chicken and peanut sauce. Reminds me of the peanut sauce stir fry I make often. I think I’m getting the craving for it again….

  2. I am definitely trying that chicken satay next week. It looks yummy.

    I giggled when I read that you sleep with your lights on when the hubby is away. i do the exact same thing.

    Are you sure you are not from Louisiana? We wear flip flops (so no socks) year round.

  3. I love the pictures. the food looks so yummy. Thanks for stopping by to check out my menu. The recipe for cowboy enchiladas is posted, if you just click on the words. I can’t figure out how to get it to show up. If you are still interested, come back and check it out.

  4. I love shirataki! Have you tried konnyaku? It’s made from the same stuff, but it comes in a block that you can chop up. I like to make sweet and sour konnyaku; it’s so good.
