Food Meme

Connie, over at Connie’s Sandstone Haven and CC, recommended to me a delightful blog- Mermaid’s Treasures.  There she has many recipes and ideas.  Also, on her blog, she has a food meme that I was anxious to do.

  1. Funny. Ina Garten is my favorite TV cook, also. I well remember the Galloping Gourmet, and I will always, always adore Julia Child. I saw her drop a chicken on the floor, pick it up, and keep on cooking way back in the day and knew it was love.


  2. Ciao Liz, I haven’t posted yet but wanted to pop by and see what’s new with you. How is Carrie? 🙂
    Nice meme!! Oh, and thanks for the link, I had a look at Mermaid’s Treasures, seems very nice! 😀
    Potato Chips?? Really? Are you Scottish? LOL! Just kidding, but here everyone eat tons of them! With everything! I do not like them much, too salty.
    I agree about pasta, a nice comfy food! 😉
    Hugs & happy weekend ahead!


  3. Hi Liz: That’s funny that we both thought of each other.

    What are Ward 8’s? A beer?

    Are the kids all set for their spooky eve?

    How is Carrie doing? I hope all is going well.

    Do you eat curry? Rachael did a terrific one and I made it. It was sooooo good
    over rice. She did an apple cider gravy over pork. I tried that, too and it was

    I was looking at the chefs you like. Pretty much my list, too. I can’t stand Sandra Lee and her boxed and canned foods as 70% of a meal. She’s sure no friend to healthy eating.

    Have a lovely day and stay in touch.


  4. I can’t seem to find the comment I just posted, anyway I was saying I like pretzels and seafood and fish. I am praying for Carrie, I pray she is doing well. Come let me know how she is doing. Also I had posted the wrong blog link in here for you last time. I don’t know what happened to that comment. How strange! have a wonderful Friday and spooky weekend. big hugs


  5. HI Liz, NIce Meme, I like to eat pretzels. My favorite food is seafood and fish. I sent you to the wrong website. I hate it when my computer saves my password for these blogs. I hope Carrie is doing well. I am keeping her in my prayers! come over to my personal blog and let me know how she is doing. I can’t wait to see you holding that little precious baby girl in your arms. It’s gonna be so sweet. Big hugs
