Tagged for Monday Madness

Carla tagged me with Monday Madness. I've been avoiding answering these; I really want to give the answers thought and lately, I haven't wanted to delve into the depths to dig up anything.

But avoidance never was a viable long-term coping mechanism... So here it goes.

1. Are there any weird "food rules" you have?
When I listen to ED, I have lots of "food rules," most of them are "weird."

Jeanne, however, doesn't have rules around food or eating. Guidelines, definitely - based on my nutritionist's recommendations, but I try not to follow it rigidly. I try to allow my body's signals to guide me as well.

2. When you were growing up, what ONE thing did your parents always remind you of, when it came to meal time (or cooking)?
Don't waste food.

3. Is there anyone you know whose food you won't eat (for one reason or another)?
Personally, I steer clear of unidentifiable food of any origin. I need to know what is in something before I will agree to try it.

4. Is there anything you "specialize" in cooking, that people actually ask for?
My husband asks for so many things that I make! But I think he would agree that my sauteed veggie dishes are particularly yummy.
Oh, and a co-worker devoured my banana bars with cream cheese frosting.

5. When you were growing up, what one meal do you remember as being your favorite?
Mish mash.
Okay, it was a creation of my very own. I would mix equal amounts of Spaghetti-Os and Campbell's baked beans with a little mustard and a lot of ketchup. Sometimes, I would then put the mixture into two slices of bread and eat it like a sandwich.
Interestingly enough, I've tried this a few times in my adulthood and for some reason, it just doesn't taste the same. 8-(

But yeah, that was my favorite... [wistful, watery smile]

Maybe because I remember my grandpa, grandma, and I making it together when I would get my week's vacation at their house each summer.

Sometimes, I miss those days. Life seemed so uncomplicated when I was five/six.
