1. Should we classify cheesecake as dairy or a dessert? I'd have an amazing food pyramid if given the chance.
I think it ought to be classed as necessities of life food. It's got dairy - all that calcium; it's got fruit (normally - though some of our cheesecakes have been known to replace the fruit with Maltersers... but for this post, we'll pretend all our cheesecakes have fruit ;), and so we can have one of our fruit-and-veg portions for the day; but most of all, it's got all that happy-feel-good stuff - you know what I mean: the stuff that makes you go Mmmmmm after each forkful and the world seems a better place.
See. Health food.
2. How often do you get on a scale to check your weight?
For the first 19 years of married life, we didn't have scales in the house. Then, last year, I bought some. (Why do we refer to scales in the plural, when they're not balances any more?). I stood on them about twice in about 6 months, but have gone on them about 10 times in the past 10 days. They're clearly not working: I've cut down my intake of food - especially of the health-food types spoken of in Question 1 - but the scales still have not moved.
I think I'll revert to my position of 19 years and chuck them out.
3. Do you wear an apron when you cook?
Well, I never, ever did, and then Pam at Where your Treasure is had an apron swap. Nowadays, I can often be seen donning an apron as I cook!
Actually, my Mum always wears one, and she would say to me every time she was in the kitchen, "Anne, I don't know how on earth you can cook with no apron". Clearly, the wearing of an apron affects one's cooking abilities!
4. Do you like to work in the garden? Tell us about your garden(s).
Oh yes! I love to work in the garden. I spoke about my seedling just a few posts ago, so I wont bore you with details again!
All being well, we'll have: potatoes, carrots, parsnips, beetroot, leeks, onions, cabbage, brocolli, cauliflower (if the pesky root flies don't destroy them this year like they did last year), as well as herbs, peppers, chillis, and tomatoes and peas. They're both 'firsts' for us, so we'll see how they go.
There is so much work involved in a garden like this. I love it, but boy, it can be time-consuming and tiring at times. But definitely worthwhile.
5. Did you hug anyone today?
Yes! Some kids and a puppy!
I was asleep when the Builder got up, and I was still asleep when he left the house. After twenty years of marriage, he knows better than to try hugging me if it'd mean wakening me!
